do you have a hard time washing your little ones hair?

My 3yr screams and cries when we have to wash his hair, we try to make sure the water doesn't get in his eyes, we use kids tear FREE shampoo.......just wondering if anyone else goes through this?

  • yes. it can be issue

    i do her hair as soon as she gets into the bathtub
    i have the water running so she has disstraction
    get hair done first thing in bath, then she has free time to play

    good luck, not alone in hair battle

  • Honestly no, I've never had any issue, but honestly we made a point to get them used to water on their faces early on. As babies they hated it, but we felt in the long run it would be best, and so far it's worked... As for the shampoo, I personally think that "tear free" crap still burns, I know it burns my eyes. I know walmart has hats or "cups" made to help make washing hair more fun.. Maybe those would help.

  • as a baby it didn't bother him to get his hair washed it started about 1 yr ago.... I have seen the cups but not sure if it will help

  • I know exactly what you are talking about. I have the best luck when I have her cousin who is five over and do them both at the same time. She likes to be a big girl when her cousin is around.
