Do I have to cut my baby’s hair and why?

Depending on the length and thickness of your baby’s hair, a haircut may be necessary.  Because each helmet is custom made for each child, a properly fitting band is one of the most important factors affecting the outcome.  An in-depth 3D image of your baby is an essential first step to guarantee proper fit of the band.  When there is a lot of thick hair on the baby, it adds thickness to the 3D surface representation of the baby’s head, and this may result in a helmet that has a lot of movement.  A DOC Band with excessive movement can lead to problems with comfort, skin tolerance, and most importantly, the effectiveness of the band.
