Providing Best Haircare for Your Children

With your children caught in the middle of routine school days and e-learning times at home due to the current pandemic, caring for and styling your children's hair is a creative way of breaking up the monotony of everyday mundane life.  

It can be difficult to care for the hair of a child. It can be frustrating to try different products, with your child losing patience along the way, squirming, and crying.

Therefore, it is important to select hair care products that are gentle to the scalp, free of harmful ingredients and chemicals, and sustainable to use. 

The latest trend on child haircare

The changing needs of children are driving the development of child and toddler grooming products. The market for children's shampoo has seen significant growth due to the increasing gap between adult and child needs. The tendency to simplify showering routines for children is evident.

Scientifically speaking, starting from the age of three, children can start developing self-confidence through seeing themselves in the positive light in the world. Hence, it is crucial to choose hair care products that enhance the natural features of your child's hair.

Frequent hair washing can prevent oil and dirt build-up and reduce your children's chance of scalp infections. However, cleansing hair too often can have negative consequences. Too much cleansing can lead to the depletion of natural hair oils, and this can lead to a dehydrated and flaky scalp.

Unsurprisingly, when choosing a shampoo for your child, the principle is to go gentle and go natural - it is a matter of good ingredients, a good regimen, and consistency.

Known for being sulfate-free + silicon-free + paraben-free, the Iles Formula Hair Shampoo is enriched with Active Vegetal Root Juices, which makes it naturally nourishing for all ages and all hair types. It instantly detangles and strengthens hair, while giving it a silky-smooth texture, reviving that natural bounce and shine in your child's hair right away. With a pH 5.50-6.50, this shampoo is extremely calming even for a baby’s cradle cap. Extracts from Japanese Silk contained in the product will add a sumptuous and voluminous finish to hair.

Educating your child on healthy haircare habits

Children have amazing learning abilities, especially when you give them enough trust. You can teach your child proper ways to care for their hair and foster good habits in them.  

Here are some hair care tips that your child could learn by heart:

  1. It is important to remember that hair product such as dyes and relaxers can cause hair damage. It should be avoided doing any form of chemical color treatments or relaxers on your child's hair.
  2. Ask your child to use a wide-toothed comb instead of a brush, when hair is wet.
  3. Make sure your child is clean after swimming. Hair can be damaged by chemicals from swimming pools if they are not washed off thoroughly. Shampooing is the best way to remove water chemicals from the hair.
  4. Use covered hair bands to secure ponytails or braids, and make sure that they are not too tight.

A graduated bob (above) is extremely French and we just love it. Super stylish and long enough to tuck behind the ears not to get in the way. Equally, as a classic is the one-length bob (below) perfect length to attach into a half up half down, bunches, or a tail.
