My daughter is 10 months and has had craddles cap off and on every since birth. I use Coconut oil/water, Olive oil/water, Apple cider Vinegar/water (not all at the same time) rinse 3-4 times a week yet it always comes back and her hair ends up either oily in the front and dry in the back or just plan dry all over. How can I get rid of the cradle cap and keep the oils in hair balanced without over saturating it?

Best in-shower detangler we have ever used is Origins "Knot Free" rinse creme.  It really is magical and we buy it in the largest bulk size they sell because my 13-year old has been using it religiously since she was 9.  If you are looking for something to then use once they are out of the shower and before you comb it out and style then I can also suggest Herbal Essences "None of Your Frizzness" leave in conditioner or Nexxus Humectress - both work really well and smell great.  Just don't over apply or you'll get that sticky build-up.



Good luck!

Quoting Ashley:

My daughter has dry patches all over in different areas, i am having a hard time getting rid of it. She has hair more like mine, but when it is wet it is curly like her dad's. She doesnt have the kinky hair. I wouldnt know what to do with it! lol But at least I got lucky with some curly hair :)


Try Aveno's Baby Moisture Lotion..It works!!! =)

I find Aveno Baby Moisture Lotion works wonders!!! Within two days of putting it on my 9 month old's dry patches her skin was freakishly soft! (in a good way =)  It worked so well I started using it as well..As for the hair care, Carol's Daughter makes all natural products that not only work but smell great too! They sell it in Sephora or on the website http://www.carolsdaughter.com. They have hair care specifically for kids...Hope this is helpful.

Definitely use sun screen...! I didn't get educated about that until late on. Also on another note, as your girls get older, definitely don't shy away from taking them to an ethnic salon...by the time my mom got me in at 13 my hair was so damaged and fried they had to chop most of it off. I was miserably self concious in middle school and already dealing with the "mixed identity" thing. My poor mom didn't know what to do with my hair LOL.

My better half says olive oil, olive oil, olive oil. Now my son uses shea butter and swears by it, hair skin all. Also just because your child has darker skin than you does not mean that the child will not sunburn. My son had a terrible burn when he went to Jamaica in the summer for the first time.

Take her to the doctor and make sure the dry patches are not eczema, I have found that this is a common problem.  If it is the doctor will give you some kind of cortizone cream for it and it will clear up in a couple of days.  My daughters hair is very curly, riglets small tight ones, the only thing that works and is most cost effective - put conditioner in the dry hair then spray it with water to make it wet and comb through and leave it alone.

have u tried using a tiny bit of baby oil on the dry patches?

my daughter had a dry patch right at her hair line, I thought it was cradle cap, but it was just dry skin... i used a bit of baby oil and it started to go away!

All I can stress is: Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! I believe I started using a dab of conditioner around 7 to 8months. Products I've tried that are great for non-coarse silky curly/spirally hair: Aveda - Be Curly, Bumble and Bumble Curl be concious curl, and Loreal's Nature Therapy Mega Moisture (from Sallys Beauty) this is to name a few of the hundreds of products I've tried between my 2 girls, myself, and my little sister. I leave in the conditioner after wetting my daughters hair and sometimes twist some pieces for spirals (now that she has more hair at 2) and don't wash it out. If your child's hair changes over time to a more coarse kinky texture, you'll need to find a good oil to apply 1 x a week, as well as not washing their hair every day (1 to 2xs a week only to retain moisture) and use good moisturizing shampoos/conditioners. Try to stay away from mousse and gels too as they tend to have too much alcohol in it and it will dry out the hair.
