HAHAHA, NO. Babies Do Not Need Hair Gel


I've seen it, usually at church in the hinterlands, or at non-urban weddings. So I know what I'm talking about. Hair gel for babies. "Giving kids some cool style." Needing some "quick maintenance." No. Nada. Nunca. Niente:

Great at home or on the go, Le Baby Hair Gel is a must have for every diaper bag. Whether headed to a play date, grandma's house or birthday party, moms can create fun hairstyles and keep their kids groomed with a product they can feel good about.
No one needs hair gel until he or she is a hopelessly awkward teenager. So drop that tube.

Both of my girls have curly hair. At the age of 18 months you would not believe how many people asked if I permed or used a curling iron on it. For real why would anyone feel the need to alter their child's hair?

Come on Greg! Every little (girl) baby NEEDS hair gel. It makes the transition to the toddler beauty pageant requirements of full pancake makeup, perm, and butt-glue go much more smoothly for everyone.

Wow! if there is one thing babies do NOT need it's hair gel. What a stupid idea. My kids have the dorkiest hair cuts in the world and they look awesome with them! That's the beauty of being a kid. You can get away with everything. Why ruin it with hair gel? Duh.

When we wanted to pretty-up my oldest daughter, we did what the nurses in the NICU did. They gave her a hair bow made of gauze, and stuck it to her wispy hair with KY Jelly. I'm not sure you could get any more stylish than that!

She's in college now, and has more piercings than any half-dozen girls of my generation put together. Maybe we *should* have invested in a good hair gel, and avoided the unexpected side-effects of raising a non-self-absorbed independent child. :)
