Baby Hair Care & Styles
With the right products and a little patience, you can spend a fun afternoon with your little one, trying out different hair styles for your baby. Your gentle touch and the familiar scents of JOHNSON’S® baby hair products can help strengthen and smoothen her hair, while enhancing your bond through such interesting activities.
We at JOHNSON’S® understand that baby hair care can sometimes be very challenging. However, ignoring those tiny knots or failing to oil her hair regularly can turn her soft hair dry, messy and lead to an unhealthy scalp and skin.
Here are some baby hair care tips to make oiling, rinsing and styling your little one’s hair an exciting activity!
Make It Fun
While most toddlers will never love having their hair washed, do your best to make it as interesting as possible. Sing a song together. Tell your little one that you're giving her a soothing massage as you lather the baby shampoo. Let her blow bubbles and explore! Distraction is the key!
Comb Hair When Wet
As soon as you're done washing her hair, comb it with a wide-tooth comb and get the little knots out painlessly before they become too difficult to manage. Never use a brush on wet hair.
Get the Right Hair Cut
With the right haircut, your toddler's hair should be relatively easy to care for. If your child has curly hair, you may want it all of one length with no bangs. With more thick or wavy hair, a layered haircut can help cut back the tangles. Talk to a hairdresser about a baby hair fashion suitable for your child’s hair, and one that will make her look all the more adorable!
Protect Your Child’s Eyes
No toddler likes to get anything in their eyes, so consider putting a visor on her forehead or rinsing her hair while she’s leaning back towards you so that you can keep her face away from water.
A new-born’s eyes are still developing. Compared to adults, they blink less often and tear less. It takes time for the blink reflex to develop, making it easier for an unwanted substance to get into the eye and cause irritation.
Protect Against Frizz and Static Cling
If your toddler has curly hair, there's a good chance that it may become wild or unruly in rainy or humid weather. Straight hair can stick upwards or outwards in cold, dry weather. Understand how to style baby hair based on the nature of your little one’s locks for best results.
Watch Out for Knots
Compared to adult hair, baby hair is thinner and more prone to tangling and breakage. When it comes to tangles, brushing may become painful for your baby. However, with help of the right products, brushing your baby’s hair can be made considerably easy and hassle-free.
It's also a good idea to wash your little one’s hair in the direction that it falls.
Protect long hair overnight — never leave clips in or keep your baby’s hair tied up. If it's long enough, you can braid it before you put your toddler to sleep.
Only Use Gentle Products
Baby and toddler hair is very different from adult hair, it needs specialized products to stay clean and healthy. We at JOHNSON’S® understand this, and thus offer a range of gentle products with mild ingredients formulated especially for your little one’s delicate and smooth hair. Use a shampoo that's specially meant for the gentle nature of your baby's hair. It’s important to remember not to forget the scent, as smell is the #1 sense linked to memory. Familiar and enjoyable fragrances, like the scents of JOHNSON’S® Baby Products, have been shown to improve your little one’s mood and alertness.
To encourage your little one to cooperate during hair care time, compliment your toddler on her appearance and use positive reinforcement. With such easy-to-implement baby hair care tips and a wide range of JOHNSON’S® baby products available for mothers, we at JOHNSON’S® aim to make your beautiful baby look adorable while making the task easy and hassle-free for you as a parent!
