Those with babies/kids with lots of hair

Postby happytails » Sun Jun 06, 2010 8:54 pm

When its hot how do you stop their heads getting all wet and sweaty/sticky? :-? DD has lots of lovley curly hair and she gets quite sweaty on her head but the rest of her can be fine.

Is there anything i can do, she doesnt seem too bothered by it but it does make her head/hair quite manky afterwards :roll:

haven't found a solution yet.... but it helps having Natalie's pulled back in 1 or 2 "tails" (as she calls them) so it's at least off her neck. The front gets very wet and scraggly though!

I find that Jasmine's much better if I keep her fringe short, and tie her hair up into pigtails or a ponytail or bun

Tying Summer's up seems to be the only solution

Gracie doesn't get too sweaty even though she is a warm toddler if that makes sense, I do tie it up though. Anna has masses of hair but never says it bothers her

Tallin and Ocean aren't remotely bothered by it, sweat is designed to cool us down after all. Nayan has just had his hair shaved off as he doesn't like it long in the heat.

Rowan wears a little alice band to keep her hair off her face otherwise the front is constantly in her eyes and goes all straggly. Although her hair is past her shoulders when it's wet it is so curly that it springs right up and barely covers her neck once it's dry so it doesn't get too yukky at the back.

Tyler doesn't seem too bothered by it, I had a tiny trim done a few weeks ago because it was in his eyes but he still has quite a lot - I have to wash his hair daily anyway because he is always running his hands through it with stuff in his hands :puke:
