Hair has a different color, type and texture. In your children who have straight hair, you will have no problems when doing hair care, in contrast to children with curly hair. Children who have curly hair sometimes refuse to comb because hair that is easily tangled will make it difficult to comb and make your child in pain. How to treat children who have curly hair?
Did you know that baby hair is velus hair. Velus hair is temporary hair that runs out until your baby is 1-3 months old. Basically, thick or thin hair can be influenced by heredity. Curly hair comes in many different styles. Curly hair can be divided into large curly hair, small curls or curly curls. Curly hair often has problems in care because curly hair has a different texture.
In children who have curly hair, treatments can be done in the following ways:
1. Keeping Humidity
Children with curly hair need to keep the moisture in so the curly hair will be soft and silky. You can use a deep conditioning treatment every two weeks. Meanwhile, children who have dry hair should not wash it too often.
2. Dry the hair
For children who have curly hair, avoid using a towel with rough material when drying your hair or you accidentally wrap your child’s hair in a towel to make your hair dry quickly. On curly hair it should be dried slowly. You can dry your child’s hair using a soft towel then wipe gently so that the hair doesn’t get messy.
3. Apply Conditioner
You can apply conditioner after washing baby’s hair. Choose the right conditioner that makes it easy to comb when finished shampooing. The use of baby care products must be considered, especially babies have sensitive skin, so you must pay attention to the use of baby cosmetics, such as conditioners. If the baby has a skin disorder, you should do early treatment by taking it to the doctor.
4. Choose the right comb
Children with curly hair are advised to use a comb that is looser. A loose comb or a comb will rarely make it easier for a child with curly hair to tidy up. A rare comb will help reduce pain in the child that arises from frizzy curls. In addition, for children with curly hair, comb it when the hair is dry. Whereas in children under one year of age and their curly hair is still not clearly visible. You can use a special soft comb for babies.
