It can be frustrating when start to think about how you will manage your child’s hair.  What products should I use?  Is there an easy way to detangle?  What haircare products should I use, are they safe? How often should I shampoo? Do I need to use conditioner? Are 2in1 shampoos ok? The answers to these questions will come in time, but for now, here is some advice to start with.

Dealing with Cradle Cap

Use your fingers or a brush with very soft bristles to gently rub your baby's scalp each day. This will boost circulation and help scaly patches of skin fall off easily. Wash your baby's head each day with a gentle soap (try Original Sprouts Baby Wash or Natural Shampoo) until cradle cap subsides. Then shampoo about twice weekly.

Dry Flaky Scalp:

It is a common misconception that Dry Flaky Scalp and Dandruff is the same thing. They are not. Dry Flaky Scalp is dry as Dandruff is the result of an oily scalp, and is also called cradle cap when it affects babies.

Tips for a Great Haircut Experience


1. Have an idea of the kind of haircut or style you would like for your child before you arrive for your appointment.


2. Bring a photo or save one to your phone of the type of haircut or style you have in mind for your child, or arrive a few minutes early and look through our style books.


3. A stiff collared shirt, turtle-neck, or hoodie can interfere with a haircut.


4. Some children are more sensitive to hair on their necks than others. Bringing a clean shirt is always nice.


5. Try not to plan a haircut after an uncomfortable visit to the doctor or dentist, or if your child is not feeling well. We want the child to be as comfortable, and less stressed as possible.
