Seeing the baby wearing hair accessories is really cute and adorable. Moreover, that’s when the baby also has healthy and fragrant hair. But not all babies have hair condition desired by the mother, for example, babies with dark, bushy and healthy hair. This type of hair and hair beauty are heavily influenced by genetic factors and nutrition (vegetables and fruits) during pregnancy. Some problems in the baby's hair that may make the mother worry are:
Thin baby hair condition often occurs and makes mothers do various ways to make the hair bushy, including shaving the baby’s hair. Mothers, as long as the baby is healthy, have no problem, indeed. Hair shaving is a tradition. What must be considered is the nutritional intake, because it can affect the baby's hair.
Baby’s hair is vellus hair, which means the hair will temporarily run out when the baby reaches the age of 1-3 months. So, mothers do not have to worry about hair loss in the babies because actually baby’s congenital hair will not be carried for a lifetime. Their hair will fall out and be replaced with new hair.
Hair Doesn’t Grow
Baby's hair not growing well will make mothers worried. This is not a serious problem as long as the baby’s scalp stays healthy and there is no infection or disease. Usually baby's hair will grow up at the age of 2 years.
Crust on Baby’s Skin
Causes of crust on baby's skin are the influence of androgens in the womb and carried away by the time the baby is born. The symptoms look like dandruff or yellow-brown flaking skin. Mothers do not have to worry, because it will not make the baby itchy and will disappear by itself.
Good nutrition intake will make the baby’s hair growth run well anyway. However, not only the nutrients that must be considered, the cleanliness of the baby's hair and scalp is also essential. Mothers could use a baby shampoo, such as My Baby Hair & Body Wash enriched with aloe vera and avocado to maintain skin moisture and help the growth of the baby's hair.
