Here's how to keep your baby's hair clean, moisturised, and tangle-free


It's important to moisturise hair weekly to keep it soft and manageable. Finding the right regimen will depend on your baby's hair texture and structure, so you may need to experiment with different products.

Here are a couple of options: 

Look for a natural product such as jojoba oil, emu oil, avocado oil, virgin coconut oil, or almond oil at natural food stores.

Tip: Create your own moisturizer by mixing light oil (sweet almond oil or light virgin olive oil) with natural ingredients (rosemary or lavender).

Distribute a small amount of the moisturiser onto your fingertips and gently sweep it through the hair and onto the scalp. Your baby may be sensitive or allergic to some ingredients, like essential oils, so watch closely for unusual reactions or breakouts.

Avoid products with mineral oil or petroleum jelly because they tend to clog the pores.
