What Makes a Baby’s Hair Dry and What Can Someone Do About It

Surprisingly, babies get dry hair on their head like adults and kids. Babies can attract dandruff and other nasty hair fungus if hair is not treated. I know the baby hair looks nice and soft. You think it won’t look really tangled and jacked in a couple weeks. Every mom, thinks in that context and its ok to be wrong about it. Treat the baby’s hair with the best baby shampoo for dry scalp. Why? Shampoo designed for clearing huge amounts of dandruff on hair works best to keep baby hair clean. Keeping it clean at all times should be what you want for your baby right? If you agree then look below to learn more.

Adjust the Time You Wash Your Baby’s Hair

Time is not your friend on certain hours, but you must adjust your shampoo washes to get better results. Do you wash your baby’s hair every day? If you answered no then you should. Baby with little dandruff do not need their hair washed daily. But, babies with a lot of dandruff do. I understand you have a schedule and you don’t feel like doing it. Just do it before you go to sleep. When you brush your teeth before going to bed, make sure you wash your baby’s hair with best baby shampoo for dry scalp. It can be a little pain. But, life does not have little pain that last forever. The baby will grow up one day. Then, you can stop.

Use medicated Shampoo If Dandruff Shampoo is Not Working

Medicated shampoo is not the shampoo you find at the store, but it can help your baby get a full clean when nothing works. You have tried the oils and the shampoo, but your baby still has a head full of dandruff. If nothing is working for you, I suggest you go to a hair doctor and get some medicated dandruff shampoo. Call your doctor and get your baby sorted out. If you are uncomfortable about talking to a doctor in person, try talking to them on phone. Most doctors I met are quite nice. Don’t worry about judgments. They are there to help.

Massage Baby Hair With Olive Oil

Looking for shampoo alternative, try massaging your baby’s hair with olive oil. It sounds silly and a little messy. I know it does. Do not worry about this. The procedure does work and it helps you get rid of stress. When you have a baby, you got a lot to think about. Spending a few hours or minutes massaging can help you forget things too. You must forget things not important and focus on helping your baby get better.

Olive oil might sound unconventional, but getting your baby’s hair to look good is what matters. Most people would not tell you to use olive oil to dandruff because it is time consuming. But maybe your baby has picky hair. Maybe it needs to use olive oil in it to make it clean and dandruff free.

Don’t Worry About Losing Hair Because You Can Reverse It

After I gave birth to my daughter, my hair started to come up shorter then expected. I felt my depression start to kick in. I tried to act like it wasn’t there. But, I knew it was there in back of my mind. My hair started to fall out too for some reason. I wanted to reverse the whole thing early on but I didn’t know what to do. One day, I met a friend from college and he told me about this vitamin to take. I was a little skeptical about it. The vitamin seemed to make me feel a whole lot better. My hair slowly grew back. I can’t recommend this vitamin to everybody, even though it worked for me. So, I want you to check it out the vitamin I recommend for pregnancy hair loss.

Take Some Prenatal Multivitamin

Prenatal are the best vitamins for postpartum hair loss in my opinion. You might of took one during pregnancy to help your baby develop. Take one now to help your hair recover slowly. The pill provides your body with different vitamins and minerals to make your body become its full healthy self. Take about 2 to 3 pills each day. It would be wise to call a doctor before taking any prenatal multivitamin, because they come in different types and taking the wrong one can be very fatal. Be careful about your pick. Put the best vitamins for postpartum hair loss in your mouth for the fastest results.

Put Some Biotin Vitamin In Your Mouth

Biotin, a supplement that fuels hair growth. Your hair will be encouraged to grow back faster if you take this. The hair will be thicker and stronger in addition. Vitamin B complex stored inside biotin to provide you with minerals from certain foods that promote hair growth. In time, you will get your hair back.

Eat Bananas to Boost Hair Growth

Hair can grow by itself if you eat specific foods daily. Bananas are something you can eat daily to grow out hair. They are yellow and go with every meal. Bananas have a rich source of potassium that stimulates dormant hair follicles. More and more hair follicles will grow on your head. It won’t happen too soon. Though, you will notice the effect in 3 to 6 weeks. Bananas are very cheap to buy for the week, so you shouldn’t having a problem eating bananas every day.

If you get sick of eating bananas while trying to grow hair back, then put bananas in other foods. You can put the banana in other foods to make it more pleasurable. Put them in your ice cream. You can mix them with your drinks to make sure you inject banana somewhere in your diet. Find a way to mix banana with food or drink and you will be able to deal with the banana torture. Remember, you can stop eating bananas when your desired hair amount grows back. No need to get frustrated.

A Birthday Tribute to Smellen

Happy birthday to f.o.b. and guest blogga SMELLEN!

Dog Birthday Corbis ValuPak 11554691

May all of your wildest birthday wishes come true today, gal.

43101430

Smellen “the felon” is not only brilliant, hilarious and an enormously talented artist, but she is also just a lovely human being, inside and out. Love you like a sister, Smellsy, all year long too, not just on your birfday!

Smells and I have been friends for a long effing time – since preschool! I’ve had the distinct pleasure of celebrating well over 20 birthdays with her over the years as we flattened a path through the woods between our houses while perfecting the slumber party. I gave her chicken pox, she taught me about the wonders of grilled-cheese makers and together we dreamed about one day having boobs (now I laugh, ahahaha).

I remember one slumber party in particular where we used a Ouija board to “communicate” with the deceased cousin of an alleged new kid in school. He “told” us that he died in an unfortunate accident. Virhin was his name! We were so bewildered by the spelling of his name – how unusual it was, how MYSTERIOUS! Was it Turkish? Scandinavian? I have recently begun to suspect that the name was so unusual because…it wasn’t real. NO. Not possible. I swear I wasn’t pushing the arrow but it’s possible that Sarah Longworth was. We may never know! Man, I only wish I was as cool now as we were back then.

I hope this birthday is even more fun than that one was and wish I could be there to celebrate with you. Treat yourself to a cupcake with sprinkles!

From a fake Boricua to a real one: Felicidades!

In addition to being a wannabe Yid, I’m also a wannabe Puertoriquena. (In high school, I tried to convince a guy I was one-quarter Puerto Rican—my father’s mother—because I thought it would endear me to him. It failed.) So you can imagine my thrill when Sonia Sotomayor was officially confirmed as the first Boricua and the third mujer to the highest court in the land. There is lots of hometown pride here in New York, where there is a large Boricua population. Not to mention there’s the famous Puerto Rican Day parade every summer in my neighborhood where I always manage to get a free pork sandwich and a marriage proposal. (Also free.)

All this talk of the law and milestones and pioneers got Longtime and I discussing via G-Chat a serious issue Sonia Sotomayor will face: how is she going to accesorize her robe? Luckily, we figured it out. Here are Longtime and my thoughts on how you tackle that scary black sack:

1. It’s actually a very practical frock. You can hide snacks underneath it during long court sessions. Put some Jujyfruits and a Red Bull in there and call it a day.

2. Another plus: it hides stains well. Think of the money you’ll save on dry cleaning.

3. Longtime says she would go commando underneath. She likes that kind of thing. It’s like not wearing underwear in church, I suppose. I prefer undies, but if it’s hot out, I guess the robe will work in your favor here—just avoid subway grates.

4. I, on the other hand, would use the robe to hide squirt guns to shoot Clarence Thomas in the eye. Just a thought.

5. You can also fit a Kindle in there. Catch up on your Norah Roberts while some lawyer rambles on and on about mens rea.

6. Longtime pointed out that the robe is essentially judicial fat pants. No more worries about what to wear on your heavy days!

7. No one will be checking out your rack in that thing. Except Scalia. He’s a creep.

8. No one will mistake you for being in the KKK.

9. You don’t have to worry about charging bulls.

10. It’s the perfect platform to display scarves. It’s time to bring back the 80’s Career Woman Scarf! Here’s an instructional video to show you how to tie the perfect French Knot

The white lady “Bounce n’ Shuffle” dance is alive and well in Africa

You can hear her interior monologue sing the “Throw ya hands up” line from the Single Ladies song, right? I had drunken dire predictions about her being Executive Assistant of State, and to quote Baby Houseman’s Daddy, when I’m wrong, I say I’m wrong. I was basically wrong on all my calculations (so far). I think Bill going to North Korea and not her was pretty smart, and I think her being all up in Asia lately is fabulous. She appears to be a pretty good manager and delegator, and those monochromatic pantsuits are charming their way through the entire globe it seems. No gaffes or hogging the limelight. She doesn’t even look tired, either!

I suspect many people—mostly women—whose feelings about Hillary waver from adoration to frustration also have the same experience with their mothers. (And the ones that claim to hate her—mostly men—are actually in love with her but because they know she’s too good for them and is smarter than they are bash her. I’m looking at you, Limbaugh.) It’s not fair to project my our maternal issues on to her, but if you’ve met Schoprah’s mama, you will note that they are two very similar broads in politics, dress, work ethic, body shape, ability to tolerate idiot behavior in a spouse, and hair.

So when I watched this video I cringed and my interior monologue went, “Mooooo-oooom, stop dancing! You’re em-baaarr-assing me. GAWD.”

And the winner of the “Mirror Mirror on the Wall, Who’s the Blergiest One of All” Contest Is…

Here is her winning prose:

My life has become even blergier since your last contest! Still unable to shake my unemployment, I decided to enroll in a training program in a medical technician field, though some friends and relatives thought I was overqualified for the career due to my collection of degrees. Lo and behold, I was rejected from said training program! So I’ve returned to the job search, where I continue to be rejected by all potential employers who cross my path. My unemployment benefits are running out, so my bank account balance is decreasing with a speed roughly equal to that with which my ass is expanding (Cheetos are my solace). Furthermore, the fellow whom I thought was my boyfriend recently introduced me at a party as his “friend”. Misfires on all cylinders!

Schmemily won a $10 Chipotle gift card. (Schmemily, you let me know that it arrived, yes?)
