From birth baby's hair needs special attention.
Effectively, baby's scalp is still very thin and unprepared for harsh chemicals. Hence, it is essential to use a mild shampoo that is specially designed for babies and has been tested under dermatological control.
An infant's hair gets dirty very quickly due to poorly regulated sebum secretions:
When baby reaches 1 year old you can reduce the frequency of the shampoos (approximately three times a week).
When is the right time to cut his hair?
If he is almost 18 months old and has a lot of hair, now is the time to cut his lovely curls!!
You do not feel inclined to pay a hairdresser? Here are a few "pro" tips for a successful first haircut:
- Cut hair when it is dry using scissors with rounded tips.
- Carefully comb baby's hair and make partings every two centimetres.
- Then you simply need to take each lock of hair between two fingers and cut the hair that is protruding. Start by going around the ears, then the back of the neck, then around the crown to finish up on top of the head.
Your first haircut will be a success and baby will look gorgeous!!
If baby has fine, thin hair, wait until he is two years old for his first haircut.
