Babies are naturally born adorable but they come along with differences. From colors of skin, eyes, to different weights and heights, some are with full thick hair, some has little strands too. Most parents want to grow their baby’s hair to be thick, but how do we do that? Would thick baby hair guarantee that he will have less chances of baldness when he grows up? What can we do to grow baby’s hair thick? Let’s go ahead and find out.
•Aloe Vera Extracts
Aloe vera has proven its wonders for good skin. Along with that, it can also help in growing hair and moisturizing it. What you can do is massage the aloe vera extracts to baby’s hair and scalp. Or choose baby shampoo with aloe vera extracts in it.
•Vitamin E and Iron
Vitamin E helps a lot in healthy growing hair. Iron also improves hair growth. Look for products that has these vitamins present or you may also include foods that are rich in these vitamins into your baby’s diet.
•Use Soft Towels
When drying baby’s hair, make sure that you are using soft towels. Gently pat and wipe off excess wter in baby’s hair. Avoid rubbing a rough towel in baby’s head as it might damage baby’s scalp or cause hair fall.
You may use almond oil to massage baby’s scalp and hair or you can include almonds in his diet. Almonds are known to be good source of protein and essential amino acid to grow baby’s hair.
•Regular Hair Washing and Grooming
Clean and wash your baby’s hair when he takes a bath. Use shampoo to get rid of dust and dirt stuck in his hair. After bath, use soft hair brush for baby to avoid hairfall and untangle strands.
Use baby oil to gently massage baby’s head and hair. It doesn’t only provide nutrients and moisture to the growing hair but it is also good for blood circulation.
•Mild Hair Wash
Use hair products that are baby-friendly and mild. Don’t just depend on its smell and fragrance but look into its contents and make sure it doesn’t contain chemicals that may affect the growth of your baby’s hair. If you could, use conditioners for baby too so you can control baby’s curly and bushy hair. Opt for those that contain nutients that are essential for healthy growing hair.
You might have heard too that cutting baby’s hair will make it thick, but that is not proven to be true. Cutting baby’s hair will not affect its follicles but instead, it would only seem to look thick since the hair is growing on same length altogether. And while you enjoy baby’s thick hair, it is never a guarantee that he will have less chance to be bald when he grows up.
There is nothing wrong with wanting your baby to look at his best all the time. It is never wrong to explore things that would be of help for him too. As parents, it is our duty to provide healthy measures not only for our babies to feel healthy, but look awesome as well, cause that’s how they deserve it.
