4 Tips for healthy hair in children

Regular trims

Even if your child only has a little hair or very thin hair, regular trims promote healthy hair growth.  In some cultures, they even shave their babies heads completely so that their hair will grow back thicker and stronger.

For children with more or thicker hair, cutting off the dry and split hairs will keep the hair looking healthy and strong.

Use children’s hair care products

While it’s certainly easier to limit the bottles of shampoo and conditioner in the house, adult hair products are not suitable for children’s hair.  Adult hair products have drying properties, and for children this can make their hair too dry or even brittle.  Children don’t have oily or greasy hair, this comes later when they are tweens and teens.   It’s best to find milder shampoos and conditioners suitable for children that will cleanse and leave their hair soft and moisturised.

A good hairbrush

Finding a good hairbrush that will gently tackle tangles without pulling the hair is both good for healthy hair, but also takes the pain out of doing hair.  Many children don’t like having their hair brushed.  We’ve written an article on some of the top hairbrushes to help with tackling tangles.  For curly or more coarse hair it is probably better to use a wide toothed comb.

A good children’s vitamin supplement will not only ensure that their health and bone development are supported, but a good supplement will support healthy hair and hair growth.  Vitamins A, B, C, D and E (the beginning of the alphabet!) all contribute to healthy and stable hair growth among other health benefits.  Your child’s hair type will vary from others,  healthy looking hair will differ from hair type to hair type.

  1. Wow, this looks great! Will have to make sure i show my sister this as she is forever having issues with her daughters hair!

  2. Great tips! It took me a long time to get to grips with our daughters hair which was straight and greasy up top, and curly and dry (no matter how much you chopped it off) at the bottom!!

  3. She’s got gorgeous hair! I think the main thing for us is getting it trimmed. When it’s not been trimmed for a while, I find that the ends become a bit tangly and hard to brush through. – Especially when we are rushing about in the mornings on school days.

  4. This looks and sounds great. I am so much more concerned with my girls hair now than I used to be. These tips are so important.

  5. There are some really super fab tips here. Always good to keep children hair as healthy as possible xx
