If your ds's hair is anything like my dd's, it is much easier to deal with the cradle cap then it is combing it out every day. Honestly, we never ever wash dd's hair and only comb it out about once a week. Her head does get a good 20 minute soaking once a week in her bath when she lays down and sings to herself under water.....but that is it. Dh and I are no poo and I have heard it is even better for curly headed folks to stay away from the stuff. My sister had it really bad until six or seven despite daily brushings and hair washing. I am not sure it would make much difference except be a daily PITA. As an adult, my sister does not have any dandruff problems so she apparently grew out of it. I would much rather do the oil treatment twice a year than chase, beg, plead, and tackle dd with a comb every day.
