How do you brush baby boys’ hair?

If your baby boy has hair of short length then it should be easy to get rid of knots, but that’s not all! Brushing can also impact the texture of the hair. It can make it look frizzy and in some cases too puffy. Instead of using a brush, use a wide-toothed comb to untangle the hair unless he has thick curly hair in which case a hairbrush will be a better option. In case of too many tangles, wet the hair with some water and gently brush through the strands to give it a smoother texture. 

When should a baby boy get his haircut? 

There is no particular age to get a haircut since age does not become a factor but the length of the hair does. While for some kids the hair grows at a slower pace, for others it is rapid. But it is advisable to maintain your baby boy’s hair short since it is easy to maintain. Constant trimming can also be a step into nurturing the hair. Make sure to find an appropriate salon and stick with it to maintain consistency of the haircut. Getting a baby boy’s haircut can be tricky given there are so many styles to pick from to match a certain face type.
