For parents unsure of what organic products to use for your babies hair especially those with cradle cap, eczema. Cradle cap is the common term for seborrheic dermatitis, or seborrhea, which is called dandruff in older kids and adults, due to the overproduction of an oily substance called Sebum.
most cases of cradle cap don't require any treatment, you may want to loosen and remove the scales on your baby's scalp. This usually can be done by gently massaging your baby's scalp with your fingers or a washcloth and washing your baby's hair once a day with mild baby shampoo while scales are present. If the scales don't loosen easily, consider rubbing a small amount of mineral oil.
Almond oil contains all kinds of healthy ingredients for hair like Omega-3 fatty acids, phospholipids, vitamin E and magnesium. Using almond oil nourishes and strengthens your hair, and is optimal for treating hair loss and damaged hair. A few drops go a long way to add silkiness and shine & nourish the scalp. For those that are worried about your baby being allergic to nuts the next best alternative is
Vitamin E oil or even Coconut oil.
Add a few drops of your chosen oil. Allow the oil to soak into the scales for a few minutes, and then brush and shampoo your baby's hair as usual. Be sure to wash the oil away each time — too much oil may cause scales to build up and could make cradle cap worse.
Caution: Avoid peeling the cap as you may pull out hair as well, causing bald patches.
