Those school bags, uniforms, mud-filled socks and shoes, assignment sheets, calendar days are back, dear Mummies and Daddies! You are going back to the days of nightmares after a short haul called summer vacation. Settled? It’s been invariably a week that schools have reopened across the nation and as the ‘Hair doctors to the Nation,’ we feel, it’s essential to talk about your ward’s hair care programme as he/she is back in his uniform and back in action.
Pardon us for the next few scary words. Alopecia Areata, Tinea Capitis, Traction Alopecia, Trichotillomania, Telogen Effluvium. These are some of the abnormal hair loss conditions that can twist not just your tongue but also your child’s smile, the inverted way, from 🙂 to 🙁
You wouldn’t want that, and we understand your concerns. Hence we would want you to know a bit more about each of these hair conditions so that you can protect and save your child every time by reaching out to us, your hair doctors on time.
While we can go on and on, explaining each one of the above to you in detail, we don’t wish to scare you. When it comes to your child’s health and hair care, your peace and the little one’s happiness is our priority. So if you spot any irregularity in their behaviour, on their scalp or concerning their hair, just bring the little bosses to us.
Our hair doctors would make all their hair concerns vanish like some magic trick or superpowers in the fairy tales and superhero movies. All that remains is a smile. A million dollar smile on the child’s face, that’s worth eternity and heaven for both you and us.
‘You know me well’ kinda hair problems in kids.
Don’t panic. The above list was an extreme set of hair concerns in children. However, in day-to-day situations, you must have encountered the following common problems in your child’s hair and are possibly trying to figure a way out. We can help, as always. However, firstly, know the problems before you attack them.
Contagious, itching, inflammation, irritating, distraction, poor concentration, scratching, infection, embarrassment, rashes, are all common terms associated with head lice. To keep these small parasites which live on your child’s blood, at bay, keep their hair, scalp, hair accessories like towel, comb, band etc. clean, hygienic at all times and separate if the child is already affected.
Dandruff, on the other hand, is nothing but white flakes accompanied by itching. Intake of lemon & lots of fluids, regularly oiling and washing, eating healthy and avoiding junk are some ways in which the kids can be taught to tackle dandruff.
The problem can be abnormal or general. All that matters is your care and our doctors’ expertise in helping your child cope up with the hair concern and we have no second thoughts on both. While our doors are always open for you and your kids, here are some quick and simple tips that you can follow at home for maintaining your child’s hair in the pink of its health.
