Child’s Play

A vast number of parents approach the issue of their children’s hair care rather matter-of-factly. Getting them out to school in the morning, neat and tidy, is a job in itself and a quick, daily brush and twice-weekly shampoo is about all that they can manage. But hair care is as much a learning habit for children as most other things are at this stage and the maxim, ‘the sooner you learn, the better’, applies to a greater extent to them. Peculiarly though, while the young are scolded to brush their teeth after meals and to wash grubby hands, etc., hair care is made to take a back seat when it shouldn’t.
