I treated Claire's cradle cap with olive oil and it worked really well. I just rubbed some olive oil on her head and massaged it in. I let it sit for about 15 mins or so and then combed her hair with the little comb that came in her grooming kit to get all the flakes out. I then washed her head and combed some more to make sure it was all gone. It was hard to get all the oil out with baby shampoo so I used a drop of dish soap lol.

It worked like a charm and all the cradle cap was gone. It started coming back a few weeks later so I treated it again but used coconut oil and that was a bit easier to wash out. It's been about two weeks and none of it has come back.
