CARE FOR CHILDREN’S HAIR

Some children grow a considerable head of hair in their first year of life. For others, this only happens later. As a rule, you will notice relatively quickly when regular hair care that goes beyond washing is necessary. In fact, there are a lot of things to consider when caring for children's hair. Little ones’ scalps are often very sensitive. That's why you should always only use mild shampoos and care products. The most suitable ones are those that have been specially developed for children.

HOW SHOULD YOU CARE FOR CHILDREN’S HAIR?

So that washing your hair doesn't turn into a disaster, it's best to use a children's shampoo with a pH value of 7.5. This prevents the shampoo from burning your eyes. You can also hold a washcloth over your eyes so that nothing can get in. Diving goggles are also well suited for this and may provide a little more fun and adventure when washing your hair. In addition, the shampoo should, if possible, not contain any harmful substances such as microplastics. A mild formula is always a good choice. It's best to use lukewarm water. The kids find this very pleasant. It also prevents the hair from swelling excessively and thus reduces the risk of knots forming. As a result, the hair is much easier to comb. It is also recommended to use a hair conditioner for children. This helps to detangle the hair. Wait a while before brushing. When they have dried a little, you can start combing. We recommend a brush with natural bristles or a wide-toothed comb.

WHAT CARE IS BEST FOR CURLY HAIR?

Curly hair requires very special care. This also applies to small, curly-haired youngsters. That's why there are special shampoos that clean curly hair and at the same time give it great bounce. You should never wait until your hair is completely dry before combing. Otherwise you will find it difficult to untangle your hair. If the curls are very dry and brittle or cannot be tamed at all, it helps to massage in a hair care oil. This gives them more moisture again and prevents the hair from sticking out wildly in all directions. The oil can simply be massaged in with your fingers.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU WASH CHILDREN’S HAIR?

Children's hair does not become greasy as quickly as that of adults. This is mainly due to the hormonal balance and changes suddenly when the little ones reach puberty. That's why your hair doesn't need to be washed every one or two days. It is sufficient to wash your hair once a week. They can then be freed from dirt deposits.

HOW SHOULD YOU COMB CHILDREN'S HAIR?

Regardless of whether their hair is short or long, most children complain that it pulls unpleasantly when combing. To ensure that the inevitable procedure doesn't end with nagging, you should follow a few tips. Always start at the tips and then slowly work your way up. You can gently hold the hair at the roots with your hand. If that's not possible, you can also get a special care spray that makes the hair more supple and therefore easier to comb. These contain, for example, natural oils. Also remember to clean brushes and combs regularly with warm, soapy water.
