In the world of children’s haircuts, it’s common for a kid to be in his or her first year of life and there will be little to no styling and care given to them, according to Dr. Jennifer LeBrock, director of the Center for Child Health and Development at Children’s National Medical Center.
LeBrocks research on short hair, which is the hair that covers the tops of childrens heads, suggests that there’s little to nothing that children need to care for.
“When you think about it, short hair is actually one of the most basic things children need,” LeBros said.
“It is their primary hair and they have no hair care whatsoever.
They need to be given a haircut once every day.”
LeBrogels research on hair care suggests that the only way for a child to get a haircut is with the help of a professional.
She says there is little to little care given for children in this situation, and she has been working with the American Academy of Pediatrics on a short-hair guidelines to help guide care.
“Children with short hair tend to be a lot more aggressive and less trusting and that can be a very dangerous place for them,” Lebros said, noting that it is not uncommon for children to be physically hurt in this setting.
She believes that a child should be able to have a haircut with the assistance of a hair stylist and if a child is experiencing problems in this area, it is important for the stylist to be able do the job and treat them properly.
Lebrogels also recommends that a family member be available to give advice on what to look out for when choosing a hairstyle for a little boy or girl.
“If you’re going to do this, make sure you’re giving them the time and the respect and they understand that they’re not alone,” Lebs said.
Lebs says that when a child experiences hair loss, there is usually a lot of anxiety about that area.
“And that can lead to a lot worse outcomes, so you need to treat it like a normal part of growing,” LeBloes said.
And LeBlos also believes that children who are struggling with short or even normal hair care need the help.
“We don’t want to give them an ‘oh, it doesn’t matter’ attitude.
If we’re talking about hair loss or if they’re struggling with hair care, I’d recommend that they take care of it, and make sure they’re doing everything right,” LeBs said.
