Every time we have to wash my DD's hair she totally freaks out. She has beautiful long hair, I'm to the point of just cutting it all off so we don't have this battle anymore. She says that she gets soap and water in her eyes. We have tear free soap and I know water doesn't hurt. She freaks when we wash her face too... Any ideas?Answer Question
Make a game out of it... while in the bath, ask your dd to pour a little water on her own head ... she how she re acts to that... let her keep doing it... even let her pour a little water on your head show her that you are not afraid of the water... get her some of "Her special shampoo" maybe some fruity/princess stuff... ask Her to put a drop of in on her hair and rub it in... and have her rinse it out.... this is how I got my dd out of the fear of hair washing...

We have a plastic cup with the rubber thing, that doesn't help. We have her look up and hold a dry washcloth over her eyes, doesn't help either. She still cries and screams if even a drop of water gets near her face. We have threatened, bribed, punished, and rewarded. Things work for one or two nights, then we are back to the same old-same old. I just don't know what to do anymore...
