A haircut can be a challenging activity for someone with sensory sensitivity. Vibration and sound from an electric clipper can often be too much to handle and a visit to the barbershop can end in a meltdown.
Introducing this Hair Razor Comb, the quiet alternative to the electric clipper! which allows anyone to give relaxed haircuts at home!
A couple of tips :
Use unscented shampoo and conditioner if your child is sensitive to smells or odors. It is easier to cut clean, dry hair. If your child doesn’t like to get their hair washed then we suggest that you wash their hair with sudsy shampoo on a washcloth, and rinse using clear water on a washcloth
Schedule a haircut when your child is least likely to be sensory overloaded or feeling overwhelmed by the information he is taking in through the five senses: hearing, vision, touch, smell and taste. Try to avoid scheduling haircuts after school or when your child is ill or tired
