Does your toddler or preschooler scream while you wash their hair? Are you dreaded of tantrums in the bath tab? I hear you. My daughter used to scream and cry in the shower so loudly, it frightened me every time. But, after many trials and errors, by the time our second daughter was born, we had found the best tearless hair wash method for toddlers. It’s fun and effective, my best mom hack ever!
Make Hair Washing a Fun Activity
- Tell your kid, that you are going to play salon-style hair wash.
- Place a small chair in front of a bathtub
- Have your toddler lean his head back at the edge of a tub
- Roll a towel and place it under your kids neck and wash it salon like
- There is no chance of water dripping on their face or eyes
- You will be amazed by the effect
- You can also use this method in a kitchen sink as well
Here is a video of how we wash toddlers’ hair:
I only regret I didn’t think of this before. This method has saved my life, LOL. When I published it on Pinterest many moms were so grateful for this shower super mom hack!

Other methods that might help:
1. Bath Visor for Toddlers
A bath visor for toddlers’ hair wash is effective if your kid will allow you to place it on their head. For us, it worked for a while, but then she refused to place it on the head. It is a simple and low-budget gadget for kids hair wash routine.
2. A Cloth Over Eyes During Hair Wash
I used this shower method with my firstborn daughter, which came in handy. Let your kid hold a cloth or a small towel over his eyes while you shower their hair. Tell them to keep their eyes closed and hold the towel tight. Maybe this method will suit you or your kid the best, who knows?!
Hope you are reading this while your kid is still just a baby, and you will never meet the hell of a screaming kid in the shower. Enjoy a tearless hair-wash routine with your kids, and share with your friends.
Be sure to let me know how did it work for you.
