I was happy to find this on Amazon after I finished the one I brought back from France. My son has eczema and this has been the best I have found to help smooth his scalp. Dermatologist approved the use too. Love the push dispenser and the fact that it is foam.

Works on adults

…This cradle cap shampoo for babies does an amazing job at loosening scales.

Please read. Great buy.

I recommend this to any parent that has a baby with cradle cap. In 2-3 days my baby cradle cap was gone and it never came back! My baby had severe cradle cap which was causing her hair to come out, but this product saved her hair.

Five Stars

Smells good and baby loves it.

Doesn’t burn or anything!!!! Baby was happy

Awesome product!!! Took all the cradle cap off in one use!!

Baby cap

I was trying everything. This worked within days for my son. It’s all gone! It was gentle on his little scalp and didn’t cause any irritation.

Has anyone had experience using this on a baby with a lot of hair? is it successful at still getting down to the scalp and getting rid of cradle cap?

Yes! As long as you take the time to message the scalp it will do just fine. It suds up really well so getting to the scalp was no problem at all even with lots of hair.

Does this shampoo expire?

Hi! We are the manufacturer of this product and all of our products are good for at least 5 years if unopened and 1 year after opening. As long as you buy from us or and authorized dealer of Bella B products, you can be assured that the products have been manufactured within the past 1 year (we do not over-produce, we typically do production runs for about 6 months supply at a time so old product is not sitting around). Hope that helps! Kate ~ Due Maternity & Baby/Bella B Bodycare

Works great!!!

Has work great for my baby boy

The Perfect Shampoo for Babies!

I bought this for my daughter when I noticed a mild case of cradle cap starting. The first time I used it, I noticed about a 75% reduction in flakes. By the second shampoo, a couple of days later, all flakes were gone. I use it every time I shampoo her hair and the flakes have never returned. It smells amazing and the scent actually lingers in her hair for days.

Five Stars

Excellent shampoo for baby, Safe for baby

Did anyone use baby oil and comb before shampooing or is shampoo enough on its own?

I used this on its own until it cleared up. Now i use burts bee no fragrance regularly and this once a week unless needed. She barely gets any cradle cap anymore and it was really bad for a while until we started this.

Do you have to use this fequently to see results? I give baby a bath 3 days at a time

No, I only washed my son's hair every 1-2 weeks as a newborn. (He had mild eczema and it was better for his skin to "leave it alone" as much as possible.) This shampoo worked well for him at that frequency and it's very gentle.

Very soft for baby’s head!

That was very comfortable to use! PERFECT shampoo for infants

Even for sensitive babies

This worked great cleared up my boys cradle cap very easily and great for his sensitive skin!

Best Baby Shampoo EVER!

This is the best shampoo for cradle cap or even psoriasis/dry scalp! I use this for my 5 year old with a dry scalp and he hasn't had any issues since!

Is this only for cradle cap or can you keep using it as a shampoo?

Mi baby is 14 months and I still use it.

Has anyone use this on an older toddler? My kid has never gotten rid of her cradle cap so I’m looking for something very powerful

Yes, it works amazingly well. After a couple washes it had gotten rid of most of the cradle cap. Just put some on a baby brush and very gently scrub it on the scalp and wash off with water.

Happy Cappy majes baby happy

This product we liked it for baby.…

Gentle on baby's head

So glad I found this shampoo for my baby's cradle cap. Pediatrician had prescribed some shampoo with harsh chemicals and I just wasn't comfortable with putting that on my baby's head.…Baby had it really bad so it is taking a little longer to get rid of it but we can definitely see improvement and her hair started growing more.

Gentle and Effective

Product is gentle for babies and effective! I'm happy with this product, smell isn't anything too medicinal, texture lathers well and it has calmed my babies skin and cradle cap/dryness.

Is this safe for color treated hair?

To be honest I don’t really know I used it for my 2 month baby he had dandruff and it helped a lot .

Great shampoo!

My baby girl love this shampoo!!…

Excellent shampoo for babies with sensitive skin

I actually bought this product to try a new shampoo for our 3 month old. We had tried the Honest brand shampoo and body wash for our little man, but he broke out in a rash. This shampoo cleared up our son's cradle cap and dryness to his face within 3 days. Highly recommend!

Great shampoo, very baby friendly

I’m a pediatrician and this soap was highly recommended by my colleagues. We love it for our 8 month old! It has a nice lather and leaves his skin feeling soft and hydrated. We also like that it doesn’t irritate his eyes at all. I will be recommending it to all my patients from now on!

GREAT PRODUCT!!

…I love this stuff, it's worth every penny for delicate babies

In love with this product

…Not sure if it helped his dry patches disappear as I was also using Aquaphor Baby Healing Ointment.…I will continue to use this product and recommend for babies.

Works great!

…A few days after using it and the rash has cleared up and he’s back to being my happy baby!

Fast acting

Got recommendate by my baby”s doctor.…

It works!

…I recently tried this one since my baby girl had dry skin patches. After trying baby lotions with no results I gave this product a try.…I will definitely continue to use this on baby girl

Very good but not tear free for Babies.

I saw an improvement on my baby scalp the first time I used it.…After using on my baby, his eyes started tearing a d will crust when it dries.…

A must have and definitely worth buying

…This is all I use since my baby was 3wks.…

Cured baby scalp dryness

Worked exactly as intended. Little one's head cleared up within days of first use.

Tear Free and Worked well

I used it for My Baby's Scalp treatment based on Doctor's recommendation and it worked well and baby never felt issues as It is Tear Free

Great product

Worked great On my baby fungus dandruff!

Can this be used on babies?

I'm not sure actually cause it's mentioned that it's for kids of all ages, but for babies' dandruff best way to take it out is the olive oil. Massage the scalp gently with cotton ball rich in olive oil. Wait 30 min then shower the baby. You will see the results after few baths.

Love it!

Love this shampoo, I use it for my baby and for myself.

Perfect to get rid of cradle cap

This product worked wonderfully for my baby’s cradle cap.…

Product Excellent For My Daughter!!

…I would recommend this for any baby or older child. Product smells fresh, and worked wonders for my babies dry scalp, so I am overly satisfied, and will repurchase.

Works great for dry scalp

…This has been a great shampoo and I can definitely tell the difference between this and his normal baby shampoo.

Really helps with cradle cap

If we use this product every few days, in combination with some coconut oil, it really helps keep our baby's cradle cap under control.

Works Wonders!

Within a week of using this shampoo, my 4 year old's dandruff had disappeared, as well as my baby's cradle cap!…

For anyone who has sensitive skin, finding the right hypoallergenic shampoo can be a challenging task. The scalp can be sensitive and may become dry or itchy in response to using the wrong shampoo and hair products. Many hair products work to alleviate the dryness of the scalp but leave the hair feeling oily. It’s essential to find a shampoo that takes care of both scalp and hair. Take a look at these shampoos formulated to care for both hair and scalp.
Cradle cap is dry skin patches or flakes found on a newly born baby’s scalp or other parts of the body. There is no cause for alarm as it is nothing serious; they’re majorly caused by hormonal changes in the mother while still in the womb and can be easily removed with the right kit. 
Shampoos are an essential part of a healthy hair care routine. Most people choose their shampoo based on things like whether it’s chemical or additive-free, works for their particular hair type, it’s the smell, and more. However, for the individual who has sensitive skin or allergies, the search for the right shampoo involves more thought. Thankfully, many shampoos are hypoallergenic and safe for those with special needs. These products have no harsh dyes or fragrances, use natural ingredients, and are free from common additives and chemicals. Highlighted here are excellent shampoos that are hypoallergenic and safe for everyone.
