Styling baby and toddler hair is always best with a natural, moisturising approach. Keeping baby’s skin and scalp healthy from the beginning means lifelong healthy habits.Gentle shampoos, conditioners and baby washes that use natural moisturisers help keep our children’s delicate hair and skin healthy and soft, resulting in stress-free styling.
Working with what we have
At birth, our baby may have a full, thick head of hair, or they can be completely bald—both are normal. Babies born with hair will likely experience some hair loss in the first few months of life, often resulting in some styling challenges and hilarious photo opportunities. Don’t worry. As I find with most stages of childhood development, “This too shall pass.”
By age one, if not earlier, our baby’s hair usually begins a normal growth cycle. New hair may have a mind of its own at first, because the chemical structure of the hair is in the formation stage. Don’t worry. Our Natural Hair Balm was created to safely and gently transform frizzy, baby flyaways and cowlicks into adorable baby styles.
Taking the gentlest approach
Your baby is perfect. Just think…baby-soft flawless skin and glistening locks are what we all want! The most gentle cleansing and styling routine helps protect our children’s health and beauty from the beginning. We use a paraben and sulphate-free shampoo/baby wash combo that gently cleanses away dirt and excess oils without drying skin or tangling our hair. Then we follow with a baby-friendly soothing conditioner that helps protect the hair shaft and makes for tangle-free brushing. Our entire family enjoys the combo because our skin and hair are baby soft.
Once we have clean, healthy hair, it’s easy and fun to play with hairstyles. Before brushing we spritz on a gentle detangler which makes combing a breeze, so styling is a pleasure for everyone. Our non-drying Natural Hair Gel helps hold the little frizzies and flyaway’s that are typical in babies, toddlers and new mums in place. Our Hair Gel helps protect new and delicate hair from breakage and leaves hair soft, silky and tame…never stiff or crunchy. Our Curl Calmer transforms frizzy curls into silky, soft ringlets with extra conditioning. The Hair Balm is a must for short hairs—especially fragile, breakable hairs in the hairline. The Balm helps protect the “Little Sprouts” so hair can grow longer and stay in place.
When it comes to styling baby and toddler hair, remember the golden rules: healthy + happy = beautiful! (That goes for us mums too!)
