Either way, you need not worry as hair grows eventually, and keeps growing for life. However, proper hair care is a must for hair to remain healthy and strong. Just like other aspects of taking care of a baby, hair care is something that needs to be looked into and today I would take you through hair Care Routine for Babies
Tips For Baby Hair Care
Be sure after washing we should dry off the baby’s hair otherwise wet hair causes colds and other diseases. Never comb babies hair using a comb It will be harmful to the babies. It’s advisable to use hands to groom a baby’s hair because babies scalp is as soft as an egg. Keep separate towels for wiping the heads of babies. Use satin pillowcases for babies for smooth blood circulation to head which helps to grow hair healthy.
One of the main reasons for brittle, thin hair is a sweaty and dirty scalp. Make sure that you shampoo your baby’s hair and massage her scalp thrice a week with our Afrovirtues kids herbal soap/Shampoo.
Dealing With Cradle Cap
Cradle cap occurs due to an overproduction of sebum, the oily substance that keeps the skin moisturized. This may sometimes look like thick yellow or white scales on the scalp. It is common and usually clears between 8-12 months of age. The best solution is to regularly wash and comb her scalp to keep it clean.
Combing stimulates the porous openings of the scalp and helps in healthy sebum production. Make sure to be gentle while combing as a baby’s scalp is sensitive. Use a large tooth, soft-bristled comb. Do not comb ‘a hundred times’ or unusually many times in a day. Once or twice a day is okay.
One of the best ways to maintain healthy hair is by regularly trimming ends. This prevents split ends and dryness related issues. Also, it helps if you could keep it a short length from a comfort point of view.
