    Hi everyone,

    I would like to know what methods we can use to cut hair for babies. My daughter is 1 yr old now. We have shaved her head (mottai ) in thirupathi when she was 7 months. Now, her hair has grown very thick and uneven .

    I would like to get suggestions or methods you have used to cut hair.. or did you take the babies to parlor/saloons ?

    Thanks
    Nithya

    hi nithya,

    atlast someone had asked this question in IL. my daughter is 18 months old now. when we came here i.e when she was around 5 months we had her motai in palani. from then we never had her haircut until she was 1 yr. but her hair was very thick and i couldnt manage to give her bath and so we decided to take her to the kids parlour there they distracted her with so many things but then it all went in vain. 2 times we tried and we droped off. finally my husband brought a hair cut machine. and from then i am doing the haircut for both my husband and daughter everymonth. this is reallyyyyyyyyyyyyyy very useful.

    even yesterday my daughter had her haircut. i feel much releived everymonth after her haircut.:mrgreen:

    Hi there,

    I used to clip my daughter's hair and bangs while she used to sleep on my lap. I was apprehensive of the hygiene in the hair salons here and didn't want my baby daughter any where near them. That was way back in late eighties when there were no cartoon cuts and other infant friendly places. I used small scissors the ones that men use for trimming their beard/moustache and a wide comb to gently lift the hair from her neck/face and clip hair on top of the comb.

    With my son also i did the same thing until he refused to have his hair cut by me and insisted on going to the barber shop with his dad. it is another matter that he didn't like the short cut the barber gave him and came back to me to fix it and make his hair longer. i had a hard time making him understand that i cannot make the hair longer and it takes time to grow back.:-D

    Hi anu,blondie, piu and ramya,

    Thanks for your replies. I got lot of options now. Blondie, I loved your son's innocence. I am thinking of taking my baby to the parlour for the first time so that they cut in shape. And then try with a trimmer myself.

    Is there any specific brand or product that is good for trimming?

    thanks all once again
