I have been using this to wash my son's hair since his first bath, he is 3 months old now. He never developed cradle cap at all and I attribute that to the Salicylic Acid in this shampoo. He has a small patch of eczema on his scalp and while this shampoo does not help it, it certainly does not make it worse. I strayed once and used the Mustela Hair & Body Wash on his head and he had a big eczema flare-up as a result. I recommend this to all new Moms hoping to avoid that dreaded cradle cap. I picked it up at Target.
I actually use this on myself , but it would be an excellent product for infants and newborns. It cleanses gently and leaves my hair super-soft. Perfect for chemically-treated or colored hair too. I needed a couple of pumps to get enough shampoo for my hair, but it creates a nice, creamy lather and smells sort of herbal.
When i washed my daughters hair with this shampoo, I combed it through her hair to losen all the flakes and all the flakes were gone after the 2nd shampoo. Shampoo is very light & rinses out easily.
The woman who cut my 2 year old daughter's hair recommended this product because my daughter had a bad case of cradle cap. I was a bit skeptical to buy another shampoo since the last hair stylist recommended Paul Mitchell's Baby Don't Cry Shampoo which made it even worse. But I knew we had to try something so I bought it. We saw a difference immediately. Our whole family has noticed how much better her scalp looks. I also love the scent. I expected it to be a medicinal scent, but it's a nice fresh scent.
Awesome for cradle cap, my 1 1/2 year old started getting a mild case of the scalies and every other baby shampoo was making the situation worse. I found this on drugstore.com and bought based on the reviews there. Used as directed, it got rid of her flakes in a little under a week, and they haven't returned after 2 months (same bottle by the way, lasts a long time.)
Great shampoo for newborns and small infants. Self-foaming, is so easy to use and rinses well. Not only does it diminish cradle cap, but also leaves baby's hair silky soft and clean at the same time. Definitely recommended.
My baby has cradle cap and I am hesitant to use J&J(which I hate). 2 weeks after I used the shampoo, the cradle cap slowly disappear. She's 10 months now and is still using it. Love all mustela products except for the barrier cream.
My baby is almost 4 months old and i still used this on her,easy to dispense because it's a self foaming shammpoo.I love that mild baby frangrace.
