When Amanda was newborn, I used Emu oil to keep her hair moisturized. It was lightweight, unscented and not greasy. As it grew longer and wore off in the back, I resorted to hats and pig tails to keep it looking nice. After the hair cut, Eucerin lotion held her hair neatly in place. By the end of July, I found Vaseline to be the most effective in keeping her hair from looking frizzy and getting tangled.
We've got pig tails again!
"Look at how cute you are!"
Now, I use Luster Pink Oil lotion to moisturize and pull her hair into pig tails after naps. I found a pack of 600 little colored single-use rubber bands. I use her finger nail clippers to cut the rubber band and remove it with lotion so I don't pull out her hair. It easiest to do her hair when she's sitting in front of me on the toilet, even though she only actually goes potty when she's sitting on the toilet alone. I face her and she holds onto my legs, and I, her back.
We will see what changes hat season brings to our hair routine!
