Use the right tool for the job!
Many newborn babies experience flaky or dry skin on their heads. The best way to treat cradle cap is with the Bean-b-Clean brush, which is made precisely for this purpose. Here’s how to make the best use of this amazing tool!
Causes of Flaky Skin on Babies
Babies can get dry or flaky skin for a variety of reasons. Simple dry scalp can be caused by triggers from changes in weather, medical conditions, or overbathing. Fragrances and oils used in shampoos and lotions and too-warm baths can also lead to skin issues.
When your baby’s flaky or dry skin is accompanied by oily, scaly patches that are yellow or brown in color, chances are the culprit is cradle cap. Cradle cap is a common, non-contagious condition that develops due to excess oil production in the scalp.
The best way to treat cradle cap is with the Bean-b-Clean brush, which is made precisely for this purpose.
How to Wash Baby’s Hair with the Bean-b-Clean Brush
In order to use the Bean-b-Clean brush to treat cradle cap, follow these simple instructions:
Step 1: Wet baby’s scalp with warm water.
Step 2: Apply a pea-sized amount of baby oil or coconut oil, gently massage into the scalp, and let soak for about 15 to 25 minutes.
Step 3: Using gentle pressure with the Bean-b-Clean brush, massage in a circular motion all over the baby’s scalp.
Step 4: Rinse and add a small amount of shampoo to reduce oiliness.
Step 5: Finish rinsing with warm water until water runs clear.
You may see improvement immediately. Often, cradle cap may take a few weeks to fully resolve.
Continue following these steps with the Bean-b-Clean brush to control baby’s cradle cap and prevent it from returning.
Bean-b-Clean is better than other brushes, sponges, or washcloths because of its short and firm bristles. Standard baby hair brushes typically come with softer and longer bristles, which don’t allow for proper removal of the scaly patches on the scalp. Hospital sponges don’t rinse or dry fully, allowing bacteria to grow.
The Bean-b-Clean brush is the best product on the market specifically for the treatment of cradle cap.
