    Default 16 month old toddler has dry hair. Missing vitamin or nutrition?

    DS is now 16 months old, hes always had lovely hair, nice and smooth. But for the last few weeks I have noticed his hair is suddenly very dry, they are so dry that they are standing up, as if someone has been rubbing a balloon against his hair!
    Both DH and I have normal hair ~ oily hair.
    I am just worried that he might be missing some vitamin or some nutrition in his diet thats causing the dryness?

    I noticed this with my DDs hair And she takes her kids multi every day but what clicked was the colder weather seems to have been harsh on my hair too so that's what I put it down to

    Yes the winter weather wreaks havoc on my hair, or it could be from the heating! I get dry skin as well this time of year.
    Just a thought: I dont think its nutrition because the nutrition hes getting at the moment would be making the hair closest to the scalp, not the existing hair lengths. If his hair was good beore but has changed suddenly, to me that doesnt point to nutrition. Does that make sense?

    Lol I got what u meant. I'd put it down to either the cold or the heating cause both cause ski. To dry out n need extra moisture maybe try a tiny bit of conditioner aswel as baby shampoo ?
