CafeMom Team will be posting Baby Encyclopedia questions in the Babies Category from Tuesday till Friday of this week. For every question you answer, you'll be entered to win one of the $25 Gap Gift Cards that we're giving away each day!
But there's a catch... only "real" answers will be entered to win the $25 Gap Gift Card. If you do not have tested advice or an informed opinion on the topic, please wait to answer the next question. There will be plenty of opportunities to enter the contest.
We are using these questions to create a mom-tested resource for new and expecting parents, so try to use proper grammar, punctuation, and spelling when writing your answers.
Read Official Rules.

I found that with my son olive oil worked best!(I always have some in the kitchen) I would massage a little in and then after it had sat there for about 5 min or so I would lightly scrape the dry skin off with one of those VERY soft newborn hairbrushes(feeding/nursing time was the best for me) After about 3 days his head was clear and I continued to put the olive oil on his head for another 2 weeks. Not that he does not have great genes and all but he now has very thick, curly hair that grows super quick, maybe from all the great olive oil when he was just a few days old!
