My daughter is 7 months and her hair is very dry. Submitted by Tequila

My daughter is 7 months and her hair is very dry. I have used water with extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, and Pink lotion not together though. I’ve recently changed her hair regimen. I’m using E’tae baby line when I wash her hair weekly. I’m using my Shea Moisture leave in or Hawaiian Silky Miracle Worker 14-in-1 with water everyday and detangle with a wide tooth comb. Are these products too much too soon for her hair or should I seal them with oil. If I moisturize her hair in the morning by bedtime it’s mainly dried out again. Should I just Spitz with water at bedtime and leave her alone?My daughter is 7 months and her hair is very dry.

The products aren’t necessarily too much but how much you’re manipulating her hair is. Daily combing/moisturizing/styling can lead to damage and breakage after a while. Is her hair long enough to put into a protective style yet? Braids, twists or cornrows should be installed after moisturizing when possible. That will help her hair to retain the moisture that you’re applying. And yes, you should definitely seal moisture in with an oil each time. Without a sealant the moisture that you’re applying is just evaporating.

The best regimen entails picking one wash day. Wash, add a leave-in, maybe a hair cream if you feel she needs it and then finish off with an oil. Install a protective style and then leave her hair alone for part of, if not most of, the week. Then do it all again on your next “wash day”. 🙂
