All you need to know about Haircare
How do I keep my baby's hair healthy?
It is important to keep your baby's hair and scalp moisturised, so they do not have problems with dry skin. Use a conditioner on their scalp, or coconut oil, to keep their scalp healthy and hydrated. Use a detangling comb to reduce friction and tugging too much on the hair. Gently brush your baby's hair frequently to get rid of dead skin cells, and shampoo frequently. Dry their hair with a soft towel to reduce breakage, and ensure that your baby follows a healthy, balanced diet so they are getting the right vitamins needed for hair growth and maintenance.
Are hair styling products suitable for babies?
You should only use hair products that are gentle and safe for use on your baby's delicate scalp. Check the ingredients before use, as chemicals used in adult haircare can be damaging to your baby's skin. From newborn age to around six months, you should resist any desire to style your baby's hair, and just let it naturally grow and develop.
How can I keep my baby's hair moisturised?
There are many baby conditioners available on the market nowadays that contain moisture-rich ingredients such as Shea butter and coconut oil, both of which have anti-inflammatory properties. It is recommended that a conditioner is used every time after shampooing, and coconut oil applied to the scalp daily, to prevent dryness. You should also make sure that your shampoo is sulfate-free so it doesn't strip moisture out of the hair.
How often should I wash my baby's hair?
You should wash your baby's hair once or twice a week, depending on how much oil their scalp naturally produces. Washing more than this could strip the scalp of its natural oils, causing dryness. If your baby has a scalp condition like cradle cap, you should wash the hair more frequently with a treatment shampoo.
