How to Keep your Child’s Hair Healthy
When you have a baby girl who was born bald, how would you take care of your child’s hair so that it will grow healthy?
Very little hair
Dindin was born with nary a hair on her head. If you can remember the former Senator Blas Ople, then you can imagine her forehead looking like that. Yes, he was the only one I could connect to Din’s hairline. And when she turned a year old, her hair did not change much at all.
Shaving the hair off
A lot of people suggested that I shave her head so that the hair will grow all together. It was believed that her hair will look thicker. But I refused because she is a girl and I don’t want to see her bald in her pictures.
Eventually, I thought of trimming Dindin’s hair as much as I can. First I started with the hair at the back. I trimmed about an inch. The hair at the back grew longer in a short time but her bangs still looked cropped. So despite the very short hair on her bangs, I started trimming about 2 millimeters off it. It started growing!
So I got the idea that if I just religiously trimmed Dindin’s hair, it would grow longer faster and would appear thicker and more even. During that first year, I think I trimmed her hair every week. I would cut one area and do the other part the following week.
Until finally, Dindin’s hair looks like that in the picture above. I am happy that her hair has grown longer and thicker just because I kept on trimming it.
