Baby’s First Haircut

The baby is growing, his face is changing and his hair is beginning to change the tone and shape of the strands. As the months pass, the time has come to trim the locks and make the baby’s first haircut.

It is normal to be insecure about how he will react. Will she cry? Will it have fun? But the way is to face one of the first adventures of the baby and the dads.

Saving Your First Hair

A very old custom that has been dragging on until today, is the habit of keeping baby’s belongings as a souvenir. And one of the items in the dads’ precious box is the baby’s first lock of hair, as a reminder of the first haircut.

When to Get Baby’s First Haircut?

If your question is what is the right age to start cutting your child’s hair, the answer is: you are not of an appropriate age, because everything depends on the proportion and amount of hair of the baby . Of course, it will also depend on the need and the discomfort, as in cases where the hair is already hindering the vision falling over the eyes.

Where to take the baby to get a haircut?

Another very common question for dads is where to take it? We have to agree that even for us adults it is a difficult decision to make and choose the best place to entrust our hair, right? Imagine to be responsible for our son’s first haircut?

The ideal is to take it to a trustworthy salon, preferably that you already know the professional and that you are sure you will have patience and care , in addition to a lot of affection to accomplish this important milestone. There are appropriate and specialized places for child cutting as well.

These places usually offer very attractive options to ensure that the child has fun, without any tension. Chairs in the shape of an airplane, car or even a very colorful and relaxed environment with the right to a diploma with the first framed fuse.

If you choose the salon with the professional who is used to cutting your hair, make an appointment in advance, preferably when everything is more calm and quiet and the professional is more available to do everything very calmly.

To improve the situation and make your baby more relaxed, take your baby’s favorite toy or doll to play and take the attention away from the moment. If the baby feels safe, the pressure is less for everyone, easier to make the cut and finish quickly.

An important point that must be observed when choosing the place to make the baby’s first haircut is the hygiene of the salon as well as the objects used in the action of the cut. If the room is not sufficiently clean and maintained, the baby may have contact with fungi and even develop some dermatitis .

When to repeat the cut?

The frequency of cuts is very relative and will depend a lot on the growth of the hair, as well as the chosen cut. Professionals advise that a cut is made every 3 months , to structure, help to grow and strengthen the hair.

It is worth noting that right after the baby ‘s first haircut , the strands may start to change. Curly hair can lose the shape of the curls, lighter hair start to darken and this is all part of the changes and the transition of the baby’s growth.

Gel and Baby Hairstyles

In addition to the haircut, modern hairstyles enchant the daddies of hairy babies. Nowadays we can count on the help of many items and gel for baby hairstyles and make them even more beautiful.

Here we will give some tips on the use of the gel on children’s hair:

Is There a Problem Using Baby Gel?

There is no problem with the use of ointment or gel on the baby’s hair as long as it is products suitable for babies and children. You can use the gel to make that modern hairstyle or even apply a temporary colored spray for the child to go to a party.

Never forget to remove the gel and preferably only use it on special occasions. It is most appropriate to remove it on the same day, before going to sleep, in order to prevent residues from remaining on the baby’s scalp, causing scaling or irritation.

How should the gel be applied?

The best thing to do when applying the gel is to apply the gel to the comb and not directly to the baby’s head. With the gel, the hair is already super hard, so put a very small amount that will be enough to style and style.

How to Remove the Gel?

Always remove it, try to use warm water. Some babies have a very high sensitivity on the scalp and very hot water can cause scaling. If possible wash with neutral or appropriate shampoo for the baby.
