10 best ways to grow baby hair faster

10 best tips to help in the growth of baby hair. Does your baby has less hair growth? Then switch to these natural remedies for Baby's hair growth

Whether your baby was born with thick hair or not much at all, you are bound to notice some hair loss in the first few months of life. Postpartum Hair loss is a concern for many mama’s also. While it can cause a sense of panic for any parent, rest assured that it’s completely normal! If you’re worried about baby’s lack of hair, below are 10 ways to help grow luscious locks faster with natural remedies.

1. Aloe vera

Aloe vera is exceptionally beneficial for both your hair and skin, so it’s little wonder that it can be used to promote hair growth. Simply scoop the insides out of the aloe vera plant and mash it with distilled water to make a hair growth product. The result is a thick paste that can be used to wash your baby’s hair with, with miraculous hair growth results.

2. Gelatin

Gelatin is a good form of essential amino acids for both children and adults. The problem is, for infants who solely consume milk, these amino acids that promote hair growth are difficult to include in a diet. Before baby has his bath, mix a teaspoon of gelatin powder with a teaspoon of cold water, hot water, honey, and apple cider vinegar. Massage it into your baby’s scalp, allow it to rest, then continue with your shampooing treatment.

3. Eating healthy

Once baby starts eating solid or semi-solid food, it’s important to include as many nutritious foods as possible into their diet. Vitamin D encourages hair growth; therefore, you can introduce vegetables such as pumpkin and sweet potato to kickstart growth.

4. Eliminate dry scalp

Natural oils can help you get to the root of your baby’s hair loss problem. Because babies often suffer from cradle cap, they are prone to experiencing hair loss as a result. If your infant has a dry scalp, use natural oils as a solution. You can buy specially formulated baby oil with all-natural ingredients, and you can even add castor oil to promote hair growth.

5. Coconut oil

Coconut oil has long been used to treat a range of conditions in both infants and adults. Not only does it smell delicious, but it works wonders on your hair and skin. If irritation, dryness or cradle cap is a problem, gently massage coconut oil into the affected areas. You will notice the difference to the health of the skin within days!

6. Argan oil

Argan oil has been increasing in popularity for a number of years. It’s so beneficial for your hair that some hair salons feature a line of products with argan oil as the star. In fact, it’s just as beneficial for your baby as it is for you. Argon oil works by moisturizing the scalp to promote the growth of strong, thick and silky hair.

7. Use quality baby shampoo

There are so many baby shampoo products on the market that it’s easy to become overwhelmed. How do you know what is going to suit your baby the best, or is going to be better for healthy skin and hair? Where possible, opt for a shampoo that features reduced detergent levels, or is 100 percent natural. The fewer chemicals your shampoo has, the better it is for the health of baby’s skin and hair.

8. Don’t ignore those curls

Your baby will spend a lot of time sleeping in those early years, and the majority of that time will be spent lying on his or her back. As a result, it’s common to see small knots forming on the back of baby’s head. Eventually, those small knots can break off, leaving bald patches. Get on top of the problem immediately. Detangle the curls using a fine brush as and when they occur. This can help encourage hair to grow thicker and faster where it’s needed the most.

9. Haircuts

The first haircut is always a memorable moment for parents. Normally, the first lock will be snipped off and put in a special box for safekeeping, before the hairdresser transforms your baby before your very eyes. However, if your infant is having problems with hair growth or hair loss, a haircut before it’s due could be on the cards. A small trim can sometimes be enough to kickstart hair growth in all the right places.

10. Dairy products

Whether your baby is breastfed or is now on solid food, dairy products can help with hair growth. You can either consume plenty of them yourself for his share through your breast milk or if he’s on solids, you can add yogurt and cheese into his diet.

While there are many natural oils and remedies to promote hair growth in babies, remember that a positive growth and a love filled environment is very important for a baby. So promote your love with these remedies to see the lovely hair!

    Shampooing hair is essential to remove all the dirt, grime, and excessive oil. But if you are using strong shampoos with high levels of chemicals and cleaning agents, then they wash away hair protective moisturizers along with them.

    A too strong shampoo can even affect the hair growth level as they damage the internal cortex. So, make sure you use a mild shampoo and don’t overdo it.

    Hi, great article when my daughter was 2 years old I worry about my baby hair because my daughter hairs was thick and not shiny hairs. Then I start my searching on internet and search some many articles but I like one article and I apply on my daughter which written on article like aloe vera, gelatin and also I use Johnson’s baby shampoo which specially made for children then I saw good changing in my daughter hair and after few weeks my daughter hair shiny and silky.

    When i had my son, he had so much hair. When he was 5months, his hair was the length of his face when stretched out and i dint use any products. However, now i have a daughter and its the complete opposite. she is almost 3months and her hair isnt even at the length of my son’s at the time he was born. So this is great advice and i will definately try them out. I pray i can give positive feedback next time. fingers crossed 🙂

    Your baby’s gentle locks and scalp are super sensitive and you must only choose the best baby shampoo, one that doesn’t come in way of protecting them. Maaté’s Baby Hair Cleanser is a natural baby shampoo made from the goodness of nature using Fenugreek & Green Gram Extracts and is 100% chemical-free. It conditions the scalp and cleanses hair without stripping the scalp’s natural oils. A fine blend of natural emollients and extracts, it has made bath-time with my little one super fun and refreshing and made her locks heavier. I’ve been using this natural baby shampoo for my little girl for the last 4 months, and I have to say, the texture of her hair has also drastically improved.You can take a look at -https://www.maate.in/baby-shampoo.html
