Baby Shampoo, Conditioner, Detangler & Oil
(Basic Hair Care for All Ethnicities & Hair Types)Shampooing a baby's hair should be done with gentle care, and keep in mind that it shouldn't be done frequently since a baby's scalp is sensitive and can be dried out if the natural oils are constantly being washed out with shampoo. Conditioner is the second step and should be applied to the scalp and massaged in followed by a rinse with warm water. Detangler is optional. I know people that constantly battle with their baby's hair because it is growing fast and getting tangled. Detangler is more for long hair. Oil however should be used on a baby's scalp weekly. Be sure to check your baby for allergies before trying any oil. Doing a patch test is appropriate. If your baby responds well to a specific oil like organic coconut oil, massage their scalp with it about twice a week. Their hair should be very soft after their usual bath.
You may also wish to massage their bodies with oil, but that is a whole other subject I will be covering on my other blog later on www.skinoholics.blogspot.com
Live Clean & Other Organic Products---> Natural & Effective
I am a fan of live clean products. Their shampoos are the bomb, and their masks are fantastic. Recently, though, I have come across some great baby products from them and I am amazed. The gently baby wash and shampoo is fantastic and organic at the same time. Johnson and Johnson baby shampoo does not compare not even by an inch! Their products are laden with harmful chemicals, but live clean is naturally effective without the use of harsh chemicals. Nature's Baby Organics is also a great baby brand and worth every penny.
Here are some baby hair staples that every mommy should own.
