Josiah has had really terrible cradle cap since birth. I've mostly just ignored it, but lately it has been flaking off quite a bit and it really is kind of yucky. So last night when I was giving him a bath, I decided to try an olive oil treatment that I'd read about. Seemed simple - rub olive oil into his hair, scrub his head, then wash as usual.
He loved having his head scrubbed. Seriously LOVED it. I wonder if it has been itchy for awhile. And it all came off!
So did his hair. All of it in the front and on the top of his head (where the cradle cap was). He looked ridiculous!
Which is how I came to give him the closest buzz cut I ever hope to give. :) He's pretty cute anyway, don't you think?
