How I Maintain My Infant Daughter's Hair

My post about my maintaining my natural hair became popular overnight. Hair is a big freaking deal. But how do I take care of my daughter’s hair? I have had people ask me this question in grocery stores, “How does your baby hair look so soft and shiny?” I sometimes give them a strange look, because she hardly has any hair. However, I do believe a healthy hair routine starts at a very early age. Let’s be honest, ladies our locks are very important to us and why not let our daughters have the most healthiest and most beautiful hair possible!


I do not wash my daughter’s hair often. I maybe wash it at least once a week or if she just happens to spit up in her hair. However, when I bathe her, I just wipe her hair down with a wet washcloth or she will put water in her own hair  by splashing around. I never use soap in her hair, not even the Johnson’s head to toe wash. I think it is too harsh for her hair and causes it to dry out.  So when I do wash her hair, I use conditioner instead of shampoo. Shampoo can also strip your baby’s scalp natural oils and her hair will just seem dry or sometimes too greasy depending on her hair type.

So what hair products do I use for my daughter’s hair?
