As a new mother, one of the things you have to learn about is how to take care of your baby’s hair. That is why in this post, I want to share some easy hairstyles for Black babies you can try on your baby girl’s hair. These hairstyles are extremely simple for anyone to make. You don’t need to know how to do hair, let alone, how to do babies hair. Infact, these hairstyles are so easy, your husband, partner or older child can do these hairstyles on your baby’s hair. 

You will notice that these hairstyles do not include hair extensions or any type of attachments that stays in the child’s hair for a significant length of time. these hairstyles are also tension free and they won’t pull on your daughter’s hair or damage her growing hair follicles. 

Before we get into babies hairstyles, I’d first like to answer some frequently asked questions relating to caring for Black babies hair.

Why do babies get bald spots on the back of their head?

The sleeping and sitting position of your baby will affect her hair growth. Since babies sleep most of the time during the first few months of their life, it’s crucial that you switch their sleeping position, so they’re not always sleeping on their backs.

Remember that your baby is growing every day, part of the growth she’s experiencing is hair growth. However, if she’s always sleeping with the back of her head resting on a surface, that section of her hair won’t be able to grow as much as the rest of her head.  

Since it’s recommended for babies to sleep on their backs to avoid sudden infant death syndrome, I wouldn’t recommend switching your baby’s sleeping position just for hair growth. You can however get your baby satin beddings such as a satin pillowcase or give her a satin sleep cap for babies. 

If the back of your baby’s hair seems like it’s not growing, you shouldn’t worry because it will eventually grow out when she’s old enough to change sleeping positions and you feed her healthy meals that will facilitate this growth. 

What causes babies to have lots of hair?

Some babies are born with lots of hair, while some are born with barely any. This is mainly determined by genetics and the mother’s diet while she was pregnant. 

How can I get my baby’s hair to grow?

Since babies are growing every day, you really can’t do much to change the development of your child. You can however do certain things to help ensure your baby’s hair grows healthy and long. If you are breastfeeding, you want to ensure your baby is eating healthy.

As the mother, this means eating healthy foods such as the ones recommended in this post and taking your vitamins so that the breast milk your daughter feeds on has all the necessary nutrients needed for growth. If your baby is taking formula, you can choose healthy non-GMO formula with less hormones that can hinder your baby’s growth or cause health issues.

How often should I wash my baby’s natural hair?

You can wash your baby’s natural hair each time you bathe her. it’s crucial that your daughter has a clean scalp so that her hair can grow healthy and strong.

What can I put in my baby’s hair to keep it moisturized?

Most infant and newborn hair are still soft, since the hair itself is only a few weeks old. Therefore, you only need light oils such as coconut oil, sweet almond oil, olive oil, and jojoba oil. You can start to introduce baby hair products after about six months or whenever you feel her hair is ready for it.

How do I take care of my black baby’s hair?

Babies hair doesn’t need much work. You don’t need to have a hair regimen like you would for an older kid or your hair. If your baby is above six months old, you can start incorporating hair products such as baby shampoos and conditioners.

To keep healthy moisturized hair, seal her hair with a leave-in conditioner and oil such as olive oil. You can do this routine a few times a week. And when your daughter turns one year old, you can start to incorporate more time-consuming routines such as deep conditioning. 

When she goes to bed at night, please make sure she sleeps on a satin pillowcase or with a baby satin bonnet, or both. This will help prevent dry hair and breakage while she sleeps.
