Talk about the haircut with your child. Let them know that it is a fun event and something they will enjoy. If possible, come and visit the salon a few days before their appointment so they can explore the environment and watch other children getting their haircut. On the day of the appointment, come in a few minutes early to allow your child to play with the toys at the salon. This allows your child to become familiar with his/her surroundings before their haircut begins.
We have had great success with the Knot Genie! Begin using the Knot Genie towards the ends of the hair. Slowly work your way up towards the root of the hair. We advise using Babo detangling sprays or leave in conditioners for added tangle relief. Detangler can be used on wet or dry hair.
If your child has dry hair, we recommend using a moisturizing shampoo. We carry several different types in our salon that we can suggest based on your child's specific hair type. We also recommend using a leave-in conditioner/detangler to moisturize dry hair.
We advise wetting hair prior to swimming. This will help minimize the absorption of chlorine. We also recommend using Kylie's Pre-Swim Conditioner. Directly after swimming, use a shampoo specifically designed to remove chlorine from hair, such as George's Swimmers' Shampoo. Follow with a conditioner. Regular trims can also help keep hair healthy and minimize the damage done by chlorine.
Put olive oil on the area with the gum and work it in, use a comb to brush out the gum. Hair may need to be washed more than once to remove the olive oil.
