Roughly an year back , when I was in my 9th month of pregnancy, I still remember how I used to spend the whole day on my mobile phone to make a list of things that are the best buy for my yet to born baby.
And while choosing these things, I was most concerned about selecting baby bath and skin care products.
So today in this post I am going to share with you some points to consider while choosing a baby shampoo and a list of best baby shampoos of 2021 available in the Indian market
WHAT TO CHECK WHILE BUYING A BABY SHAMPOO?
- Always check the list of ingredients before buying baby shampoo. Choose non toxic shampoos which are devoid of any chemicals, as otherwise they can harm your baby’s delicate scalp skin and can cause allergies. Some of the harmful chemicals to look out for are – parabens, pthalates, dyes and alcohols.
- Avoid shampoos with added fragrance. They can add allergies to your baby’s skin other than fragrance.
- Always go for sulfate free shampoos – commonly known by the name of ‘Tear free shampoos’ in the market.
- Choose the shampoo which is hypoallergenic and has a PH near neutral (5.5 – 7).
PS- The American Institute of Dermatology recommends using just the warm water for washing your baby’s scalp with washcloth in case of newborns and later on using mild and fragrance free shampoos for washing hairs just once or twice a week.
