day 39 - hot oil treatment

We're trying out an oil treatment for your apparent cradle cap. You have a very mild case of it and your hair conceals most of it, but when the lite shines right and I see those little crusty, scabby looking things... it ignites that primitive urge to pick. Much like the urge to pop a zit.

While I have sequestered the picking urge, I simply must do something! You had a similar scab on your ear which went away in just a day or two with a little baby lotion making it seem harmless to treat. I rubbed some baby oil on your scalp this morning, brushed it in with your soft brush, and set you up in the cap you came home from the hospital in. We're letting it soak in before a bit more brushing and a rinse (as per recommendations).

If this doesn't work, at least you will have nice shiny hair! Check back for the results!
