iLyH Kids Care 101 (Newborn 0-3 months)



  • Wash baby's hair every 1-2 times per week with a mild baby shampoo or moisturizing head to toe wash (Aveno Baby Wash and Shampoo, Shea Moisture Baby Head to Toe)
  • Use a soft baby towel or swaddle blanket to gently remove excess water from the hair
  • Use a pea size amount of organic/raw coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil to massage and moisturize baby's scalp
  • Use a soft bristle baby brush in small circular motions to to stimulate the scalp, remove and dry skin or cradle cap and smooth hairs.
  • To refresh, sprinkle clean water and a small amount of oil as needed (daily or every other day) and gently brush hairs in place.


  • Avoid over washing your baby's hair. Curly/Coarse textured hair does not need to be washed daily.
  • Do not wash baby's hair prior to leaving the house. Ensure hair is completely dry before taking baby outside.
  • Do not use any hair accessories that attach or clip to the hair. Soft, loose headbands are best to avoid unnecessary pulling or stress on the fine baby hairs. Caps should be soft, breathable and flexible.
