What’s a (marginally) fashion-conscious mom to do?

Gel? Pommade? or should we go this route and be done with it:




  1. Seriously, my granddaughter, who’s now 3, had Einstein-hair issues. I mean, she had really, really bad hair every day. We found just the tiniest bit of “product” (conditioner, mousse, whatever you have on hand) brought her under control.

  2. oooh, I love “the Donald” look. On the other hand, it might get in the way of playing with those adventurous brothers. Vanity, thy name is “comb-over”

  3. the Mrs. of the House says:

    Well, I find that a spritz of water and a tiny bit of leave-in conditioner works great…just comb it through in the “style” you;d like his hair to be and let it dry that way.

    If you are brave enough, and he allows you.buzz it. He will then have a very thick coat of hair grow back.

  5. It’s not that bad, really! And if you decide to do something to it, you know it will just be undone in a matter of minutes anyways, right?

    I love baby hair in all it’s unfashionable forms!

  7. Bridgit Vinson Dresser says:

    It Just looks like static hair to me.. little water..comb in place…spray and go..no hats..no hoods. Or we cut it to spike next time and I give you the gel that never stops till you wash!

  8. Bridgit: I think that the “gel that never stops till you wash” is exactly what I need!

    Thanks for all the comments — you all made me laugh. Comb-over indeed! And to explain, I do wet it down every morning. Henry gets the spray/comb action along with all his brother. but the minute his hair dries, it’s back to this mop. (I’ll keep him, though)

  9. If you figure something out, let me know…my 3yo boy has the same exact hair! Very fine and wispy…goes haywire if you look at it wrong. I consider it part of his charm.
