4 yo refuses to get hair shampood - Page 2

post #21 of 22
My dd had such issues when she was small. I kept her hair quite short for that reason. It was easier just to have her comb it daily and we washed it once a week unless there was a special need.

I actually think it's good for kids to have to deal with things that they don't like, but they have to do.  It's great life practice, IMO.  I also tell my daughter that looking somewhat groomed is important.  She can dress herself it whatever she wants, but her clothes have to be clean :-)


Same here, especially the bolded.  I told DD1 she can either let me wash and brush her hair or she can get it cut in a pixie. Those were her choices, but she was not going to walk around with unbrushed, dirty, sweaty hair.   I gave her a week to decide and she decided she'd rather let me keep it clean.  It didn't hurt that I went out and bought more detangling spray in a bottle with an octopus on it and a bunch of cool hair ties and clips.  If she does decide she wants it cut short, fine.  I'm ok with either option.
