There are so many brands that offer their own renditions of baby shampoo. The best way to choose one that works well for your baby is by trying only the most trusted brands that truly understand baby skin. Before you begin this process, make sure you get an okay from a pediatrician. Baby hair and skin is delicate so it’s safe to limit this process to only a few baby shampoo brands.
Here are some simple steps to begin experimenting:
Start out with brands you trust. Shampoos that are tried and tested as well as dermatolo-gically approved.
Look for formulas that are mild and aren’t too soapy. The great part is, the baby care space has soap-free options, too!
Buy small sizes of shampoo bottles before you know which brands you want to commit to.
Find out from your mom friends what they use and trust. It’s a great way of discovering brands.
Look for shampoos that are devoid of harsh chemicals like sulphates, dyes or parabens.
Formulas that include natural and mild, skin-natural ingredients are always a win!
Make your research even more interesting by looking for breakthrough formulas. The market has a great selection of baby shampoos that use skin-natural ingredients, are pH neutral and are tear-free.
If you’re looking for sustainable options, read labels properly and check if they’re cruelty-free, made from recycled material etc.
Other than choosing the right shampoo, you also need to know how to incorporate a good hair care routine for your baby to maintain healthy hair growth and scalp.
When your baby is at an infant stage, washing their hair once or twice a week is enough. Use only a pea-sized amount. Once your baby has reached the toddler stage, you can add an extra day to the hair wash routine.
If your baby’s hair and scalp are on the dry side, give them a nourishing hair and scalp massage with a baby hair oil or a good quality cold-pressed carrier oil. Let the oil sit only for 30 to 45 minutes.
Use your fingers while lathering shampoo on their scalp so that you apply gentle pressure.
There, you have it. The next time you want to pick the right shampoo, keep these pointers in mind and your baby’s hair care routine will be set.
