Natural Hair Products for Babies

Natural hair products for babies are something that can be debated by many African American mothers across the United States and abroad. The reason is because every child’s hair texture is not the same. This along with some other differences in bodily makeup can cause for different results in products selected for individual babies. The best thing to do is to educate yourself on what provides a consistent result and also on what to avoid in products. With that being said you can read below on how to keep your baby’s hair moisturized.


It’s important to moisturize the hair weekly to keep it soft and manageable. Finding the right regimen will depend on your baby’s hair texture and structure, so you may need to experiment with different products. Here are a couple of options:

  • Look for a natural product such as jojoba oil, emu oil, avocado oil, virgin coconut oil, or almond oil at natural food stores.
  • Create your own moisturizer by mixing a light oil (sweet almond oil or light virgin olive oil) with natural ingredients (rosemary or lavender).
  • Distribute a small amount of the moisturizer onto your fingertips and gently sweep it through the hair and onto the scalp.

Your baby may be sensitive or allergic to some ingredients, like essential oils, so watch closely for unusual reactions or breakouts. Avoid products with mineral oil or petroleum jelly because they tend to clog the pores.
