We often are asked; how often should I shampoo my kid's hair?
No one-size-fits-all answer is how often you shampoo kids hair. It can vary depending on several factors, such as the kid's age, hair type, and the amount of dirt and sweat their scalp accumulates. However, here are some general guidelines to follow:
It is not necessary to shampoo a newborn's hair every day. It is recommended to only kids shampoo on their hair once or twice a week, using a gentle, tear-free baby shampoo. Newborns have delicate scalps, and washing their hair too frequently can strip it of its natural oils, leading to dryness and irritation.
For infant's and toddlers hair (1-3 years):
Children in this age group typically have more active lifestyles and may accumulate more dirt and sweat on their scalps. It is generally recommended to Shampoo their hair every other day or every three days, using a gentle, kids shampoo formulated for children's hair.
For children hair (4-12 years):
The frequency of shampooing children's hair in this age group can depend on their hair type and the amount of dirt and sweat their scalp accumulates. Children with oily hair may need to shampoo their hair more frequently, while those with dry or sensitive scalps may benefit from less frequent shampooing. A good rule of thumb is to shampoo their hair every two to three days, using a mild shampoo suitable for their hair type, such as Bonsai Kids Shampoo.
It is also important to remember that shampooing the hair too frequently can strip it of its natural oils and cause dryness and irritation. If your child's hair becomes dry or tangled after shampooing, use Bonsai Kids Detangler to help keep their hair soft and manageable. Additionally, using a wide-tooth comb or a detangling spray can help make combing out tangles easier and less painful for your child. Start at the bottom and work your way to the top of the scalp.
In conclusion, the frequency of shampooing children's hair can vary depending on several factors such as age, hair type, and the amount of dirt and sweat their scalp accumulates. However, it is generally recommended to shampoo infants' and toddlers' hair every other day or every three days, while older kids' hair daily. Use gentle Bonsai Kids Shampoo or Bonsai Kids Curl Shampoo suits their hair type.
