Works great! Massage it in 20mins before a bath and then make sure to wash out really well. You can also use a baby brush to loosen up the bits while in the tub to. Or leave it in babys hair for the night.

I just took a soft baby brush and shampoo and gently exfoliated his head in the bath. 3 days it was gone. Be gentle.

I used baby oil. I applied it thick and left it on for 20ish minutes. I find using a soft bristle baby brush makes it easy to remove! Good luck! I always hated people asking what was wrong with his head!

Coconut oil, olive oil, vitamin e oil, baby oil. All are good! I let soak for ten minutes prior to bath and used a cradle cap comb to gently comb out! Then shampoo and baby brush to gently scrub! Took a few baths but it's all gone!

Or olive oil. Heard coconut oil can cause a reaction if there is an underlying nut allergy

I used coconut oil then when I shampooed, I used his brush to help get some of it off.

Rub it in massage it around then wash as normal. Repeat until gone and then do once a week to prevent it!

I put the baby oil on and then used a fine tooth comb too, every time before his bath, for a few months. πŸ˜„
