Dentinox Cradlecap Shampoo
Advantages: smells clean and fresh, Treats cradle cap, can be used on young babies
-: Introduction :-
When Ethan was a little younger he had cradle cap in his hair on his scalp also on his eyebrows. When seeking some help on how to treat this I was told not use anything but water baby oil and a brush, which effectively it worked a little. I didn't use the baby oil, I gave him a bath as normal and washed his hair with baby shampoo and brushed it out as much as I could. With a couple of days it was almost gone but not entirely but looked a little better then it did. It as now come back and its thick then it was from when he was younger, so I decided I was going to try and use a shampoo especially formulated to treat cradle cap as brushing it out has not worked this time.
-: What is Cradle Cap :-
People might be wondering what is cradle cap, so let me tell you what it is. Cradle cap is a harmless skin condition that affects the scalp, hair and can affect the face. It causes no discomfort to your child but doesn't look pretty as you can imagine. Cradle cap is yellow and scaly and can become quite thick. It can also cause a rash mostly on baby's neck but can be treatable with cream from your doctors. Sometime just brushing your babies hair when been bathed can help but not always.
-: What does the Dentinox Shampoo do? :-
The Dentinox shampoo is a treatment shampoo especially formulated to treat cradle cap for young babies. The shampoo as a thin clear consistency (like water) and has a nice fresh, clean small to it. The shampoo helps to lift the scaly cradle cap off the babies scalp making it easier to brush out. When applying to your baby makes sure you avoid contact with their eyes. You can also use this shampoo as a general shampoo which keeps your baby's hair and scalp clean and healthy and can prevent cradle cap from appearing.
-: How to recognize the shampoo :-
Dentinox shampoo comes in a 125ml white, flip lid bottle, with green writing on the front telling you the product name and description of the product. On the back as your normal information for a shampoo like
Sodium lauryl ether sulpho - succinate 6%
Sodium ether sulphate 2.7%
Sodium salt of coconut, imidazoline, oleic, acid, diethanolamide, sodium chloride, rose perfume and water.
Directions of use
Wet baby's head with warm water, put about 2-3ml of shampoo onto your palm (this is about ½ tspoon). Massage gently but firmly onto your baby's scalp. Do not be afraid of touching the soft area of the scalp (fontenelle). Rinse off and shampoo again, Rinse well and dry. Repeat at each bath time until baby's scalp is clear. Then use as necessary to keeps baby's scalp and hair clean and healthy.
Always read the warning information.
-: Availability and Price :-
I bought this from our local asda at around £1.97 a bottle, I should think most supermarkets would sell it and places like superdrug or boots would too.
-: Final Thoughts :-
Well this product works well on Ethan's cradle cap, I have been using it for a couple of weeks and already saw the difference it as made to his scalp and hair. The shampoo leaves his hair soft, healthy and smelling clean and fresh. It's worth every penny and would recommend this product to others. I cannot say how it compares to other brands as this is the only one I have tried, but does the trick just nicely so I can't see me looking for another one.
Thank you all for reading
