i never used baby oil on my son's hair .. in fact he was practically almost bald when tiny .. and we use lotion more.
but maybe you should try grape seed oil or olive oil as its natural unlike baby oil so it won't just stick to the surface and will absorb properly into the scalp maybe? .. well thats what hv recommended to me for skin grapeseed oil instead of baby oil.

I put baby oil on my daughters head once to try to get rid of some dry flaking skin ( maybe cradle cap not sure) I washed it out about an hour after and her hair was soooo greasy :(
it was gross!! it took almost 3 more baths for it to be normal but she has alot of hair :)

Not at all. Keeps the scalp moist. However as My son Christian got older he is almost 9 months a switched from the baby oil to the baby lotion. Just because the more he plays the oiler his hair looked the baby lotion works great:)

i use baby oil every mornin n ever since i started doin tat his hair growth seems to ve increased! but yeah shampooin it means dry frizzy hair plus a rashed up face...so i simply soap away the excess during his bath! so far so good!

i give my 6 month old a bath every other day... and i wash her hair every other time i give her a bath... and i put babyoil in her hair everytime i wash it and i comb it out... ive noticed it makes her hair easier to deal with, and shiny, and keeps it tamed! so in my opinion i dont see nothing wrong with it.. there hasnt been any signs of dry or damaged hair on my baby... the doctor knows about it too, but i would also ask your babies doctor what he/she thinks

Baby oil keeps your babies skin mosterized and soft. Only when my new baby had really dry skin did I put it right on him. Now he is almost 6 months old and I put a little bit in his bath water every second day. I use soap one day (and baby lotion) and baby oil the next. Its working really well he hasnt had dry skin at all since he was about a month old.
