Nandy has cradle cap – he’s had it since he was very small. It’s an inconvience – it looks ugly and unsightly and I’d do anything to feel his soft and scale free hair and scalp.
It is important to note that Nandy also has eczema which we need specialist prescribed creams for from the GP which limits what we can do with his dry skin / cradle cap treatment and always advisable to seek advice from a health professional if your baby suffers from skin conditions and you’re not sure what to use on their skin.
We have tried a number of products on his head such as olive oil, dentinox cradle cap shampoo, baby oil, emulsifying ointments and unnatural plastic bristled baby brushes.
Now it can be said honestly that his cradle cap has improved over time with the use of the cradle cap shampoo, and some combing with a plastic comb and brush, but, it’s still there and can occasionally flares up even when we think it’s on the out! Just when I thought that we would be stuck with this issue forever imagine my excitement when this package from @kokoso baby landed!
Their cradle cap brush is made of 100% natural bristles and beechwood and can help with the cradle cap, or so they say….
We set out in testing the theory right away and used the brush to gently exfoliate Nandys scalp only once a day for a few weeks.
The Result – I can honestly say his cradle cap has almost gone!!!
Whereas we used to have large sized greasy scales on the top to the front of his head – there are now only the odd signs of tiny white dry flecks which are more like dandruff now rather than scales!
The brush is made so beautifully with it’s beech wood handle so it looks so nice in his nursery too! No more nasty plastic Brushes.
Kokoso coconut oil and cradle cap brush
You can always finish off after brushing with a nice baby head massage using Kokoso coconut oil. Unfortunately we didn’t do this as we only use the coconut oil on Nandys face to help with any dry patches but it would certainly be acceptable to use on the hair and scalp and may have even helped to clear the cradle cap quicker than just using the brush alone.
You can purchase the Kokoso cradle cap brush from their website at a great price if only £7.99!
We were sent the natural baby brush to review and genuinely love it, we were not paid to advertise this product. All opinions and reviews are my own.
Note **Kokoso always recommend you carry out a patch test first before using the product to be sure your little one doesn’t react.
