3 Reasons Why You Keep Picking The Wrong Hair Products For Your Baby

3 reasons why you keep picking the wrong hair products for your baby

It can be overwhelming when trying to pick out the perfect hair products for your baby, especially with so many choices that are available. And we all know that certain hair products that do wonders for one person may do nothing at all for someone else, which can be super frustrating! With my own kids I even use different products (except the shampoo) for each because although the texture of their hair is similar, it is not the same and each one of them require different things for their hair. Today I am going to give you three reasons why you keep picking the wrong hair products for your baby.

The inspiration and face of by L. Jones Baby Collection

1. You are trying to use what everyone is using: I made this same mistake with my kids. I used the shampoo (in the pink bottle) that I was given in the hospital on them. I then continued to buy the product because at the time I thought that products was basically the standard as to what to use for babies. I mean, after all they give it to you in the hospital so it has to be fantastic right? Wrong! Once my little one was able to start taking baths and I was using those products on him I could instantly see him turning red. But it couldn't be this fantastic product that was given to me in the hospital right? I mean, after all, don't all mothers use this stuff? Well, once I actually turned the bottle around and read the ingredients and researched the ones that I was not familiar with, it became very clear to me that I was using the wrong products on m baby. The product had so many strong, stripping, and harsh chemicals in it that it was causing my baby to break out and have a horrible case of cradle cap. It was at this moment that the lightbulb in my head went off and I realized that just because the hospital gave this to me and it seemed as though everyone else was using this product did not mean that I had to use it for my own child.

2. You are going by recommendation: This can be a mistake because everyone does not have the same texture of hair. And even if you do have the same hair texture as someone else, you hair may require different things. For example, you both may have a more wavy type of curl pattern instead of a tight curl but one person may have extremely dry hair, while the other may have oily hair. So what the person with the dry hair recommends may not be the best decision for the person with the oily hair. If you are asking someone to recommend a great product for you, make sure they have the same texture hair as your little one and also be sure that your little one is experiencing the same issues with their hair as they are.This will increase the chances you will also benefit from the same products

3.  You are randomly picking from the shelf: The problem with this is that sometimes it works, but many times it does not. Instead, identify what your child's hair is lacking. If it is lacking moisture for example, look for products that add moisture to the hair. Also, look for products that are free of sulfates, parabens, dyes, formaldehyde, sodium hydroxide, artificial color, and  preferably uses essential oil instead of perfume to scent due to it is more natural. For example, the Gentle Cleansing Shampoo in my line (by L. Jones) does not include anything on the list I just mentioned. It is sulfate, paraben, sodium hydroxide, formaldehyde, artificial color, and perfume free. The cleansers are also derived from apples making it a fruit based cleanser. Most cleansers are derived from coconuts which is fine, unless your child is like mine and is allergic to ALL nuts, coconut included! So, when comparing the list of things my little one needs for his hair with the benefits of the Gentle Cleansing Shampoo, I can be confident that it will work for him. This is the approach you should take when choosing hair products for your baby.

Often times choosing hair products, especially for your baby can be a game of trial and error. But if you compare the needs of your child's hair to the shampoo you are considering buying, then you will have a better chance of finding the perfect product for them without wasting much money.
