Baby hair care products are important for many things, starting from shampooing a baby and finishing with how to solve such a problem as cradle cap.
Being still in the womb your baby may already have some hair. And it is very common and absolutely normal. This hair is called fetus hair. The color of this fuzz usually differs from the color of the hair that your baby will have later in life. After three or four months this first hair will fall out and the new hair will be growing thicker. Baby hair care products are not required much during the first year of your baby's life. It's true, that sometimes babies are born totally bald, but it is also common and there is no need for panic.
There is a myth that if you shave your baby's first hair it will grow better and thicker. But myth remains a myth. There is no need to shave your newborn. Imagine how your child would look like, especially if it is a girl. Sometimes parents cut little ringlet of hair and keep it as a memory.
So, what are the baby hair care tips? They are rather simple. Usually it depends on how much hair your child has and mostly babies need only shampooing. This is rather easy and pleasant and needn't being done every day. What is the most important is to be very gentle while taking care of your baby's hair. Avoid pressure. Sometimes kids are really sensitive to a pressure up to the age of four or five years old. Wash the hair of a baby slowly and easy and make sure that there are no tangles.
Providing baby hair care tips, a lot of doctors recommend to use special baby shampoos. Such shampoos usually do not concentrate sulfates that are added in hair care products for adults. Baby shampoos are formulated so that they don't sting if they get into your child's eyes. However, a high level of pH might cause tangling of a hair. That is why if you have decided to use special baby shampoo makes sure that they contain not a high, but balanced pH. PH factor should range between 4.5 and 6. Usually this information is written on a bottle. Growing children may get some problems with hair tangling, especially if pH is over 7.0. Remember this fact as a possible reason.
There are two shampoo lines designed for babies by Bobbi Brown and Origins. These baby hair care products include baby washes, talk-free powders, very enriched lotions, a low-lather combo shampoo and no-glop diaper balms. Both lines also include aromas. The products can be easily bought.
Another important aspect is water. It should be warm, not hot.
Some babies during the first few months may have redness around the scalp area. It is called "cradle cap". Cradle cap can be helped if you shampoo your child with a mild shampoo and brush gently with a soft bristle brush.
With ages the color of your baby's hair changes. If a baby has very light hair it will become darker. There is no exact answer for the question why it is happening. It has a connection with the pigment of the hair.
