I’ve been growing my daughters hair for about 3 years now, and I’m still going strong! My daughter has always been quite thick haired and I must say it’s been a journey- which is why I decided to write this post!
I have been going on a journey with my daughters hair since she was born. I’m going to share the things that have helped her hair grow healthily.
I have curly hair, so washing it often is not an option for me. But if you do want to wash your child’s hair, try using mild shampoos and conditioners. I use the Ewoma Organics Kids Bubble Herbal Shampoo for her.
When you’re trying to grow your child’s hair, it’s important to know that everyone’s child is different. So what worked for us may or may not work for others. Here are a few tips:
Try different things until you find something that works. Everyone has different hair types and textures, so there’s no one-size-fits-all solution for growing long hair on kids!
Don’t wash their hair too often!
If your child’s hair is curly, don’t wash it more than once a week. If you have any doubts about whether or not your child needs to be washed, Check if there are any tangles or knots in the hair.
Finally, make sure that you dry them well after washing and combing through with a wide tooth comb so as not to damage their strands from excessive friction during drying time.”
Only use mild shampoos and conditioners!
Avoid products with harsh chemicals, like alcohol or sulfates. These can strip your hair of its natural oils, which are essential for keeping it healthy and shiny.
Give your babies and toddlers a scalp massage!
Massage the scalp with your fingers at least five minutes, using gentle pressure to press on the hair in different directions. Avoid pulling or tugging on the hair, which will cause pain and discomfort for your child’s precious little head! You can also use a soft brush as you massage if you have one handy.
The best oils you can use.
These oils can be used in a variety of ways. They are all good for hair growth and conditioning, but they also have other benefits that your toddler may enjoy: All of these oils are part of the ingredients used to formulate the Ewoma Organics Super Gro Hair Growth oil.
Olive Oil is great for moisturising and conditioning hair, it’s also a great treatment for dandruff. It has many nutrients such as antioxidants and omega fatty acids which are essential to maintaining healthy skin on the scalp or head area of people who suffer from dryness of the hair due to lack of proper hydration during the colder months.
After washing their hair, apply oil while the hair is still damp and wrap it up with a silk scarf or bonnet at bedtime (this helps to lock in moisture).
You can use any light-weight oil that won’t leave your baby’s skin feeling greasy. Make sure you’re not using something that contains any harmful chemicals such as parabens or phthalates! If you’re worried about what kind of oil to buy, check out some of our favorites here:
jojoba oil moisturizes dry skin while hydrating dry scalps;
argan oil offers deep conditioning properties;
coconut oil conditions while leaving hair soft and shiny;
Use Satin Bonnet or Bedsheets!
Last but not least please ensure to use satin bonnets or satin bedsheets to protect their hairs at night. Cotton sheets are too harsh for your kids hair and this can cause breakage or hairloss. Satin or silk is fine textured and smooth and it helps their hair glide through properly without any friction.
These are some tips that helped me keep my daughters hair moisturised and growing nicely through the years.
A quick reminder, Keep your daughter’s hair moisturised.
Massage her scalp with natural oils, such as coconut oil and olive oil.
Don’t use too much of any oil because it can clog pores.
I hope these tips have been helpful for you! If you have any other resources that deal with this subject matter, please feel free to share them in the comments section below.
