Many young mothers are wondering: Whether to shave the nasal of a child, and why is it done? Often this unpleasant procedure is recommended for older relatives in the family, using the assumptions that the baby's hair will grow better. But in fact, the hair structure of a child can not be changed either by scissors or by a clipper.
When a child is born, on his headStill no real hair. He can be born completely bald, or his head will be covered with the finest fluff. This fluff will last on the child's head for about six months, more often up to 4 months. Then all the first hair will gradually fall out and be replaced by real ones, stronger and thicker. However, the process of replacing the hair can be prolonged, and then one year old child may have the same light fluff instead of a good head of hair.
Should I follow the tradition?
Traditionally it is believed that the child at this timeYou need to shave the head so that after that the hair grows normal. Perhaps, for some children who have not yet got rid of their first hairs, this procedure will be beneficial. But this is rather an exception to the rules. No changes in the structure of the hair from shearing nalyso can not occur. Even after this procedure, the baby's hair can still be thin and sparse for a long time. Or, conversely, already a year can grow thick and long. The thing here is not in a timely haircut, but in the genes and heredity of parents.
In some families, this tradition causes considerableDisputes and even scandals, when young mothers do not want to give their one-year-old children to the hands of hairdressers, and grandmothers accuse them of violating traditions. Where did the confidence of moms and grandmothers come from, that it is absolutely necessary to cut a child's nails? It's all about the ancient Christian tradition: earlier in families a one-year-old child was cut off a lock of hair, wrapped in a handkerchief that was put in a red corner next to the icons. Such a bundle was to protect the child from harm. When a girl was getting married, or a guy went to war, this bundle of hair was given to them as a talisman for luck and happiness.
Do not hurt the baby!
Nothing to do with today's state of affairsThe old custom no longer has. Therefore, the baby's hair can be just equalized, so that they do not climb into your eyes and look more carefully, but do not cut the nape. In summer, such a procedure will cause smiles and ridicule of passers-by and other children, forcing both the child and mother to feel uncomfortable, and in winter deprive the child of natural heating. In addition, you can easily injure or frighten a toddler with a machine. There are no positive sides to such a haircut.
To shave the child nalyso is recommended only inA case of extreme necessity: when he had lice, and you can not take them out in other ways, when the child gets a chewing gum or burdock in the child's hair. Such extreme cases for young children are rare, so do not worry, let your child's hair grow naturally.
