My granddaughter is 9 and I thought she would grow out of her fear of water in her face when her hair is being washed. She screams and hollers and acts like your killing her until the washing is done. It's not the shampoo stinging her eyes as I use baby shampoo. It's just the fact that it's water running down her face. I've tried all things to prevent that to no avail. I tried taking her to the hairdresser and she ran out the door screaming. Her mother and I are at a loss as to what to do to make it easy for her. Drying and combing her hair no problem.
