I can’t believe Baby Naturelle is already a year old. She now walks and attempts to eat on her own. She is quite a mimic as well. One of the cutest things she does is try to brush her own hair – absolutely adorable!
Baby Naturelle was born with a head full of hair in the dead of winter. We experienced and dealt with cradle cap, her incessant curiosity which did not allow her to sit still and get her hair done, and the major lack of quality hair products for babies.
I know I am a product junkie, but I refused to be a product junkie for Baby Naturelle. So I did the evil deed in the beginning and washed her hair with Johnson’s and Johnson’s baby shampoo – what was I thinking is all I have to say. The drying factor that this product caused was absolutely ridiculous. I quickly began doing research and chose to switch to Peak-A-Boo Curls Tearless Shampoo and Yes to Baby Carrots. I will post a product review on these at a later date; but for now, I am going to give you a detailed hair regime for Baby Naturelle.
1. CLEANSING – I shampoo Baby Naturelle’s hair twice a month. I use either Peak-A-Boo Curls Tearless Shampoo or Yes to Baby Carrots. I find that these products were not drying and left Baby Naturelle’s hair feeling clean..without being stripped. Her hair actually looked shiny after being washed.
3. CONDITIONING – I condition wash her hair everyother week, unless a mess calls for otherwise. I have no real staples for condition washing. I tend to use Aubrey Organics since it is a natural product. In-between co-washing and shampoo washing, I use a spray bottle of water mixed with either olive oil or jojoba oil.
3. SEALING – I typically use a drop of olive oil or jojoba oil in Baby Naturelle’s hair. I do this on a weekly basis or as needed.
4. STYLES – I keep them very simple. I only use a comb when Baby Naturelle’s hair is wet, otherwise, all styling is done with my fingers. I do not do any styles that are close to the scalp, so no flat twist, cornrows, nothing. Her hair is typically in two to three puffs. Back up styles are finger coils and two strand twist - when she actually sits still long enough. I never let her sleep with the ponytail ties in her hair; her hair is always let loose when she goes to sleep.
Well, that’s it. What do you think? What works on your Baby Naturelle’s hair?
As always, thanks for stopping by…I love comments!
