When to Transition Your Little One from Infant to Normal Shampoo

As your baby grows, their hair care needs change. Knowing when to transition from infant shampoo to normal shampoo is essential for maintaining healthy hair and scalp. Here are some signs and tips to help you make the switch:

1. Age and Hair Type: Most pediatricians recommend switching to normal shampoo around the age of 2-3 years, depending on your child’s hair type and scalp condition.
2. Scalp Sensitivity: If your child has a sensitive scalp or skin conditions like eczema, consult your pediatrician before making the switch.
3. Hair Texture and Thickness: As your child’s hair becomes thicker and longer, normal shampoos can help manage and clean better.
4. Product Selection: Choose a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo formulated for children to ensure it is mild and safe.
5. Gradual Transition: Start by mixing a small amount of normal shampoo with their infant shampoo and gradually increase the proportion of the normal shampoo.

By observing these signs and following these tips, you can ensure a smooth transition that keeps your child’s hair healthy and clean.
