If this is the case I have seen a hat like thing that you can put on their head so that the soap doesn't get in their eyes. I don't know where you can get them from, or if you still can as it was a while ago.

My almost 16 mth old son absolutely hates having his hair rinsed.....like some....the shampooing is fine. I've noticed with him that it's not so much the eyes he is worried about....he hates getting water in his ears. He once got water in his ear and it must have ached for awhile. For the past few months he screams when I rinse his hair. The cap for the eyes sounds great.....any other ideas?
If you think that your little boys problem is his ears what about putting cotton wool balls in them before the wash. It might work??????
Just a thought
