I used to use my husbands’ gooey, stickey, thick, nasty hair cream on my son’s hair. It never worked for very long, and whenever he’d wake up for a nap his hair would be matted and stiff. I didn’t want to keep buying products and testing them…so I came up with my own!
ready for this?…Lotion!
I use baby lotion specifically because
A) it smells great,
B) it’s super soft, and
C) it’s cheaper than hair product, and I already have it on hand!
I’ve used typical adult lotion as well, it just doesn’t work as well in my opinion. Oh, and just for the record: the other day my husband tried this method and loved it; he’s now using lotion rather than sticky cream, too.
Give it a try!
