As a baby and toddler my daughter had recurrent bouts of cradle cap.
We tried a whole bunch of different products … none of which I have to say were great.
And so as always I scoured around for tips and made myself a list of everything I could find.
But when the cradle cap came back recently I knew we needed just two things from the list.
A little olive oil which I massaged gently into her scalp and left for half an hour.
It’s like magic, softened by the olive oil, the cradle cap comes away on the comb instantly. No hassle and no discomfort.
We washed her hair really well afterwards with two shampoos and needed to wash it again mid week as the olive oil had made her hair just a little bit greasy. But the cradle cap was all gone.
And my daughter thought the olive oil was fab and terribly grown up because mummy gave her hair a hot olive oil treatment at the same time.
