When I first thought about writing a blog based on the care of toddlers’ hair, I thought, “Uh…just don’t let them get anything sticky in it?”
Well after thinking about it,I realized there is a lot more to it…and that I had been thinking about this all along.
Even when I was pregnant, I wondered what we were going to do with this little girl hair. When she was born, she had tons of hair. But it all fell out, giving me a little break from having to manage her hair. But today, she has blonde curly hair and it’s getting longer by the day.
When it comes to shampoo, the stuff made for babies sold in a regular store causes dry hair that is difficult to comb through. I still use store-bought, no-tear shampoo but I add a pearl-size drop of AlfaParf Reparative Mask to her ends and it makes a world of difference. I want her to have long hair so it’s very important that I take care of it now.
I also tend to pull her hair away from her face as much as possible. This way, it’s not in her face all the time bugging her so she’s less likely to bother with it (i.e. cause more tangles). Be sure to use soft hair ties that don’t have any metal parts that will break a toddler’s fine hair. Bangs are another option to keep hair off your toddler’s face but I think my Phoebe looks so cute with it pulled into a ponytail or pigtails (the cutest on a little girl, in my opinion), I decided to forgo the bangs.
When it comes to boys’ hair, things are much more simple. I personally love a boy with a mini Madmen, newscaster, perfectly-styled man haircut. If you want this style for your little man, be sure to book an appointment with one of The Root Salon’s skilled stylists because it can be a tough cut to achieve for less-experienced hairdressers.
No matter what style you go with, it’s best to keep their scalp clean and their hair soft to promote more growth. I think this helps keep their confidence up!
And yeah, don’t let them get anything sticky in it!
