Hair care for your kids: Eager to know?

By Charles Hopkins Published 08/31/2006 | Beauty

So soft, so tender and above all that makes you sentimental! Your kids hair! Those tiny, very fine cute hairs sprouting out from the softest thing on earth, your kids scalp, is it not heavenly to feel such bliss? If you are a mother you will certainly feel so.

Your child is the most loving thing to you and you ultimately do everything keeping his/her concerns first. So how can you avoid hair when you are 200 percent serious about your childs health? Hair growth is very much a part of your childs health.

The delicate threadlike curls or straight hair purely shower the essence of their tenderness and being innocent on earth. And as a parent, if you are a bit careful and conscious, your child can really hold that fresh and natural form of hair even in they grow older.

Things will change as time passes but till they are not aware whats good and whats bad for them, you have to take care of everything your child needs including the hair care aspect. Keep the hair of your child fresh, clean and nourish them with proper hair nutrients because this is the beginning of the growth. You just cant be casual at the initial point.

What type of shampoos will best be suited for your kids hair? Until they are eight or nine it is always suggested that your kids hair be shampooed with a baby shampoo that is soft and gentle. Dont make the mistake of using the same shampoo you use on your hair also for your child. Make sure that the shampoo has no hard chemicals and is particularly tear-free. Because only then can you  freely apply it onto your childs hair and your baby will enjoy the shampooing session and wont shout in trauma while bathing.

Baby hair oils and shampoos and at the most light conditioners will set the right pack for your babys hair care. Dont overdose with the use of every artificial product you see to keep your hair fine out of more concern. This will result in boomerang effect and with the use of hair sprays and moisturizing lotion, the natural layers of your kids hair will slowly elope and lately become the major cause of turning into being bald or hairless.

Another major factor which is a threat to your kids hair is if by any chance it becomes infested with lice. Immediately when you come to know about the fact, dont delay to take the right measures. Lice killing shampoos and hair oils are available in any medical store. Use them on your kids hair but follow the instructions carefully. If repeated use is required, dont ignore this directive too.

Sometimes your child may grow some sort of infection in his/her hair or the scalp. Generally the dandruff problem aggravates and becomes the major cause of irritation and you watch your child scratching their head always.

Before you attempt any self-treatment, if the condition is infectious see a skin specialist and get the problem identified. Apply accordingly as prescribed by the doctor and this will make the healing process faster. The lotions and creams along with oral medicines to be used are not the general ones you apply regularly on your kids hair.

Use a soft bristle baby brush to arrange the hair of your child and make them lovely and cute.

These years will never come back. Only those little stuffs, the brush and the comb and the teddy mirror will remain and when you are no more the young parents you can still feel the essence being nostalgic! Then you childs hair will outshine the rest and make you proud of the fact that you really cared for it one day. So is the real result of beautiful locks and bouncing bobs!
