Toddler Girl Hairstyles


Your infant might have been born with a head full of hair. To keep the hair out of their eyes, you will require certain hairstyles. These 5 sweet hairstyles are perfect for your newborn girl.


1) Pigtails

This look is ideal if all you want is something nice and simple. It's not difficult to do once you've given your child the incentive to stay still so you can put her hair up in pigtails. All that's required to secure the hair in these pigtails is a set of adorable hairbands or clips.

Since babies don't yet have a lot of hair, tying it up doesn't take a lot of time or work. You can take it up a notch by adding a french braid before you tie it up in a pigtail.


2) Floral Headband

This is a very basic classic baby hairdo that suits the youngest of the young. All you need is a soft fabric headband and a wide-tooth comb. Make a side split of sorts and add a floral band, preferably made of hypoallergenic materials. This look is perfect for formal occasions and even photo shoots.


3) Ponytail

This is yet another simple hairstyle for your child. Before starting, make sure to brush her hair so that it will be simple to tie. The final step is to gently pull the hair into a ponytail using a hair tie.


4) Bow-Pinned Hairstyle

This hairstyle is ideal for short hair that cannot be tied into a ponytail. Make a side part in your baby's hair, then use a cute clip to secure it so it doesn't fall into her face. Your little girl will be content for the remainder of the day!


5) Bright Butterfly Hair Clips

What Causes Some Babies To Be Born With Head Full of Hair?

Genetics is the primary cause of some newborns having a head full of hair. A person's DNA determines their eye color, hair color, and other physical characteristics. Additionally, it tells if a child will be born hairless. The baby may have inherited such characteristics from one of its parents.

Another significant reason why some newborns are born with hair is the number of hormones they were exposed to in the mother's womb. Even though all pregnant women have an increase in hormones, some women may have higher hormone levels than others, which causes babies to be born with hair.


Essential Tips to Take Care of Your Baby's Hair


Here are our top 4 suggestions for ensuring that your baby has a healthy scalp.


1) Shampooing

One of the main causes of fine, fragile hair is a sweaty, dirty scalp. Make sure to shampoo your baby's hair three times a week and massage her scalp. The baby's hair doesn't need to be washed every day. Ensure that you only use baby shampoos. Adult shampoos are laden with chemicals and can be too harsh for your child. 


2) Oil Your Baby’s Hair with Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is rich in vitamin E, an element with antioxidant properties. Apply coconut oil to your baby's scalp gently a few times per week to encourage the growth of thicker hair and improve hair texture. This moisturizes their hair while also preventing cradle cap. Cradle cap causes crusty or oily scaly spots on a baby's head.


3) Gently Comb the Hair

Combing promotes the production of healthy sebum. Be careful when combing the baby's hair because the scalp is very fragile and easily damaged. Use a comb with broad teeth and soft bristles. Avoid using the comb too frequently. Your baby only has to be combed once or twice a day.


4) Apply Hair Conditioner

Hair conditioner is especially important if your child has curly, textured hair or thick hair because these types of hair can be more prone to dryness.

After shampooing, condition your baby's hair and then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Make sure that you choose a child-safe conditioner that is gentle on baby hair.
