Babies: Infantile seborrheic dermatitis commonly know as cradle cap, is one of the most common scalp irritation that affects infants and kids. The cause of cradle cap is unknown. However, some researchers believe that it might be hereditary or triggered by yeast infection. Signs and symptoms of cradle cap are yellow flaky patches (similar to dandruff), or hair loss. Home Recipe:
- 1/2 tsp homemade shampoo (recipe below)
- 1 tbsp of olive oil
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp baking Soda
- 1 tbsp aloe vera gel or vitamin E oil
- 2 tbsp water
- Hair brush
Gentle massage, natural oils such as coconut oil and olive oil onto the scalp. This should minimize itching sensation and loosen the flakes. Rinse hair after 6-10 minutes with lukewarm water, and apply homemade shampoo. Rinse after 2-3 minutes. Mix together baking soda, aloe vera or vitamin E oil, and lukewarm water into a paste. Apply to scalp and rinse after 10 minutes. Brush hair or comb through with a fine tooth-comb. If cradle cap persists after several days, repeat the process or seek medical advice.
