How To Treat & Cure Baby’s Cradle Cap Naturally
You know the stuff. That yucky, yellowish, scaly build-up on baby’s scalp. I don’t know what causes it, I’ve heard it’s shampoo residue, and I’ve heard that it’s a type of fungus, but whatever it’s from, it isn’t pretty to look at.
Baby Xia developed a moderate case of cradle cap, though it was hard to see underneath all of that hair. Nevertheless, it was gross, and I had to get it off.
So the other day I sat her down, dampened a cotton ball with pure Tea Tree Oil, and rubbed it generously onto her scalp, parting her hair to get it in there good. After letting it sit for a few minutes, I used a baby comb to gently massage her scalp. And those nasty flakes… they came right off!!
It took a little while, and a lot of combing, but eventually her entire scalp was free from the build-up, and looking beautiful. I gave her a quick bath to wash all of the yuckies out of her hair.
I’m happy to report that there’s no sign of cradle cap returning. When Jada was a baby I had asked her pediatrician about treating her scalp, and he’d recommended an antifungal cream. Who wants to put that junk on baby’s head?? I’m really glad to have found a natural alternative that works!
