It helps to have a hair care routine that’s best for your baby’s type of hair. This hair routine can be a morning routine or nighttime routine or both.
Hair Care Tips for Different Hair Types
Some babies have no hair when they are born and the hair does not grow back for a while. It’s a good idea to shampoo their head twice a week even if there’s barely any hair there as this will help get rid of flaky patches on the skin. When you are going out in the sun, put a hat on the baby’s head t protect against direct sunlight on the bare skin of the baby’s head as this could lead to sunburn. You can also use a headband for girls and baseball hat for boys. Just make sure it is not on too tight and that is is made with comfortable material.
If your baby has some hair but it’s thin, scanty, and wispy, then you would still need to put a hat, tuban, or headband on your baby to protect them from direct sunlight. Comb the thin hair gently with a soft brush and for boys try to keep the hair short. For girls comb it backwards to keep the hair away from their face and eyes. You can also hold the hair back with berets and headbands or put in in a ponytail or a Bun Intended.
Thick and Curly Hair
Thick and curly hair means that you baby has a full head of hair. This will require regular shampooing, conditioning and even deep conditioning. After applying conditioner, comb the hair gently from the roots while the conditioner is still on and then rinse off with warm water. At night put the hair in a protective style to keep it healthy. For boys with curly hair, it’s great to keep it short and that way it can be well maintained. For longer hair for girls with longer hair, keep it in protective styles like sectioning it up into buns and ponytails or putting it in a braid or cornrows to keep it from tangling and getting frizzy.
Thick and Straight Hair
For thick and straight hair, frequent washing and conditioning also does the trick. Putting the hair in ponytails and buns will help reduce time spent mainiting it. This is where Bun Intended comes in handy as it keeps the hair from being all over the place and in your child’s face. Getting bangs will also help keep long hair out of the kids face.
Cutting and Styling Kids’ Hair
When giving a kid a haircut, it is best to go to a professional if you are unsure of what you are doing. That way you can be sure your kid will have the perfect haircut and haircut. However, if you have some experience and you want to give your kid a haircut at home, make sure you have all your instruments ready. Also, make sure your kid has some form of distraction especially for the younger ones. Give them an ipad or a video game or some toys to play with while you give them the haircut. Make sure to have different toys and games to distract the baby incase they get bored with the first toy. If you want to give your kids bangs, make sure you know what you are doing and make sure to start by cutting just little bits of the hair off. If you start with a big chop, chances are, the bangs will end up being too short and your kid will end up looking weird- and if they are old enough, they sure will be mad at you.
Hair Loss and Hair Growth
Some newborns are born with a head full of hair and for some these stays on but for some babies, they might lose all that hair. Some newborns shed their hair in the first 6 months after being born. Parents need not to worry if this happens, as it is a natural thing that happens after birth. The loss off hair might be due to an action called “telogen” that happens in some parts of the scalp, causing lots of hair to fall out from the baby’s scalp and sometimes all the hair fall off. But this does not mean that the hair will not grow back so parents should not go into a panic when they notice hair loss but instead should speak to their doctor if they have any questions.
Just as hair loss might happen, most newborns will start to grow out their hair after they are born. This new hair growth happens very quickly and some kids can grow a full mane in less than two months. As the baby hair grows, the color and texture might change. SOme parents like to cut off the first head of hair while others prefer to leave it as is. Whatever the case, at around 6 months, the baby’s hair would have been fully grown and come into its true color and texture and then you can start to style it as you want with bun intended styles and much more.
