How can I properly maintain my child's hair?

Your child’s hair is particularly fragile. You must therefore adopt specific treatments and do certain things to preserve its health. Let us explain.

Opt for ultra-soft treatments for your child’s hair!

The products which you use as part of your hair regime are not suitable for your child’s hair. In fact, your child’s scalp is much more fragile than yours. As for your choice of shampoo, go for a mild product with a neutral PH. Also, it must be hypoallergenic so it doesn’t irritate your child’s epidermis. Finally, it must also have conditioning and detangling properties to make styling easier. Shampoo your child’s hair one to three times a week maximum.

Our tip: There are 2-in-1 (shampoo and conditioner) or 3-in-1 products (shower gel, shampoo and conditioner) which help make your life easier! You will find them in large supermarkets or in pharmacies as there are several ranges specifically for your little ones.

The importance of detangling

Each morning, take the time to carefully detangle their hair. To do this, use a flat brush with natural bristles. Select the softness of the bristles according to the texture of their hair. Then proceed to detangle small sections to remove any knots. Once you have finished, your child’s hair should be perfectly soft. Now you just need to create the hairstyle of the day!

The only exception: if your child has curly or frizzy hair, opt for a wide tooth comb to painlessly and easily detangle. Also, always work with damp hair.

The hairdryer: a good or bad idea for my children?

Yes, the hairdryer considerably reduces drying time… But it is still not recommended for your child. Why? When used frequently, it tends to dry out the hair fibre and cause static electricity. To wring out their hair, use a terry towel, then leave it to air dry.
