Hi! My niece is 9 months old and it's looking like she'll have curly hair - she has the cutest little curl at the back of her head! The rest of her hair isnt curly yet, but her dad is a curly and he mom, although she doesn't have curls herself, it does get pretty wavy on very humid days.
I've been searching for a non-sulphate shampoo here in Argentina, but it's impossible! I can't find anything that doesn't have sodium laureth sulfate on their label! I don't shampoo, I only use conditioner, but I don't know if that's the way to treat such a small baby's hair. It's not like she has dry hair, or dyed hair...it's, for lack of better wording "brand new hair" lol!
Does anybody have this kind of problem or a solution for it? I'd love it if my sister took care of my niece's curls from the beginning.
Thanks in advance!
This is her messy curl, btw

My daughter has wavy hair, which is what I had at the same age. When she was a baby, I used baby shampoo like everyone else, but she still got dry scalp and cradle cap.
Then, I read the Curly Girl book, and I started following the routine myself, and I loved it, so I decided to try it on my daughter. The cradle cap was gone in two washings, and her hair and scalp stayed clean and looked great. She's almost four, and she has gorgeous curls.
When my son was born, I didn't even bother with baby shampoo. I just used conditioner. All newborns have dry skin and dry scalp, but the conditioner took care of that, and he never had cradle cap.
I hope this helps.

wow I should try just co on my sons hair. He has dry scalp bad where he just itches it. I have used burts bees poo and wash, california baby, and I'm currently using weleda. Its a creamy shampoo and baby wash made with calendula and other organic ingredients. The website is weleda.com if you can't find it in any health food stores. Its usually sold in whole foods and vitamin shops.
I used baby shampoo on my daughter a couple times a week when she was that age...
If I could go back I wouldn't use it though, I would just co wash. I do that now, but my husband thinks it's gross (tried explaining it to him), so I just don't tell him...
