A baby’s scalp is sensitive, so as a parent, you want to use products that you know are safe, gentle, and effective. As your child’s hair begins to grow, you might notice that your little one needs more than just a gentle hair cleanser. Some children require more hair-softening and detangling measures when it comes to their haircare routine. Below, you’ll find an all-natural shampoo option, plus two all-natural hair care recipes that utilize moringa oil.
All Natural Shampoo
Mummy’s Miracle Moringa Baby Wash and Shampoo is an all-natural, gentle cleanser that is tear-free. It utilizes the benefits of moringa oil, glycerin, honey extract, white tea extract, and chamomile to leave your child’s hair soft, clean, and healthy. It may be used on both hair and body. It is also safe for cradle cap and sensitive skin, including those with eczema.
To use this shampoo, just pour a dime-sized amount into your palms and massage into wet hair starting from the scalp and working to the ends, then rinse.
All Natural Conditioner
As mentioned earlier, as your child’s hair begins to grow, you might find that shampoo alone isn’t enough to keep your baby’s hair soft and smooth. An all-natural conditioner is a great addition to your baby shampoo needs. Below is a recipe that will reduce breakage, condition the hair, and leave it soft and manageable.

All Natural Leave-in Conditioner
In addition to shampoo and conditioner, a leave-in conditioner will help keep your child’s hair soft, manageable, and less prone to breakage. This recipe utilizes distilled water (to prevent any contaminants in the recipe), aloe vera (for strength and smoothness), moringa oil (for shine), and grapeseed extract.
