  • baby oil, and use a comb. when you wash their hair, scrub their head with your nails, (not TOO hard) and comb it out with a fine tooth comb. every time

  • IT usually goes by itself by the time the child is two-year-old. But check out this article. These methods can help. http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Cradle-cap/Pages/Treatment.aspx

  • I agree baby oil or olive oil, gently rub it in, I used a wash cloth and gently wiped it out, worked wonders and never cam back. Good luck

  • I made a little paste of baking soda and rinsed with vinegar. Then I shampooed normally, using a baby brush (super soft) to scrub the head. Afterwards you can use a little olive oil. You'll probably need to do it more than once.

  • I didn't read any other answers....but I used baby oil on the scalp. This softens it quite a bit and keeps it from being itchy. It also helps it to come off.

  • Olive oil (not petroleum based baby oil) and a comb.
