Shaving Baby’s Hair: Is It Safe? Will It Grow Back Thicker?

Most babies might not even have much to shave, but let’s look at the reasons it’s done and the facts you need to know before you decide whether or not to embark on the mission.

Will My Baby’s Hair Change After Shaving?

Let’s get straight into it. The short answer is “No.” Your baby’s hair will not necessarily become thicker or healthier from shaving.

After you shave the hairs on your upper lip, does it grow back as a full-blown mustache? Nope.

Why Shave Your Baby’s Hair?

When babies are born, their hair is typically thin and light — even if your peanut has a full head of it. These baby locks change into “mature” hair during the first year.

As the new hair grows out — it’s different. The changes might be significant, or minor. The color and texture may also change .

When you shave your baby’s head, this removes the baby hair, and the “mature” locks will start to appear earlier than they may have if left to Mother Nature.

In doing so, and depending on the follicles, there is a chance the hair will come in thicker, but it’s not a given and it would have happened anyway, without shaving.

How To Safely Shave Your Baby’s Hair

Deciding to shave your baby’s hair is a big decision. But, with the right tools and precautions, there should be no cause for concern.

What you need is:

It’s a good idea to steer clear of razor blades. Instead, you could use a trimmer. These typically don’t shave as close to the skin as a razor would, but they are also a much safer option.

Dampen the hair slightly before starting. Beginning at the back of the head, shave from the nape of the neck upward, cutting against the hair’s natural direction. Shave the top of the head from front to back.

If your baby becomes upset, take a break and create a distraction with toys — or food — before continuing.
