DD hates having her hair washed big time.

She loves the bath and being washed just not her hair.

I've tried using the shower attachment to wash it.

A cup.

I've tried lying her down and she goes hysterical crying and screaming.

I;ve even tried one of those eye sheild and no luck

Anyone got any ideas please???

Been there, done that - just over an hour ago! Have you tried bribery? My current approach is:

Shove dried apricot in dd's mouth and whack flannel over eyes/jug of water over head

Shampoo whilst chewing

Another apricot = rinsing

Usually a few tears involved, but better than it used to be!

With ds2 (2 yrs), I have just given up. He screams like he is being murdered so now I just wash his hair about once a month. He makes the same fuss about having his hair cut, so I wait until he falls asleep on his side and cut - then when he rolls over, I cut the other side. Must admit, it doesn't look very professional but anything for an easy life

No advice but sympathies as dd is just the same. She will sometimes have a go herself with the flannel but it is a nightmare to do with shampoo and rinse. Screams the place down.

This works for my dd (2)

1) Dampen hair with a flannel

2) Lather a *tiny* amount of shampoo on flannel and rub on head

3) Rinse flannel and wring until damp

4)Wipe suds off head

5) Repeat step 4

6) Give chocolate

7) Clean teeth
