    Default Cradle Cap remedy that doesn't leave hair really oily?

    DD is getting cradle cap again, the last time I treated it with baby oil and brush but her hair was oily for a couple of weeks during... wondering if there is anything that wont have this effect? Her hair is so soft and fluffy atm and I love playing with it.

    Bicarb soda. Mix it with some water and apply it like a paste. Wait for it to completely dry then chip it off.
    I usually then wash the girls hair in the morning after applying it at night.

    My DD has it too, but only in her eyebrows!

    Baby shampoo and a soft toothbrush. Wet hair, shampoo and then a gentle rub with the toothbrush. Worked on both my kids and once it was gone, it was gone.

    anti dandruff shampoo for adults always works for my babies. Whatever you have in the house - head and shoulders or Nizoral. Comb it through to give the cradle cap a bit of a gentle scrub and then wash out as normal. May have to use it for a couple of weeks but it will beat it.

    definitely go the bi carb soda. After numerous attempts at clearing it up on my DD with oil based products, I made a past of bi carb, left it on for about 30 minutes and then softly scrubbed it off with a washer in the bath. One application and it was gone and didnt come back.

    My DD has cradle cap but I haven't done anything with it. Is it better to try and get rid of it?

    I just used a very fine comb when my DD hair was wet. Just combed it out. Came away easily and no pain, did over a few days and DD thought I was just combing her hair as normal.
