Who Knew?!

So i really need to blog about this experience because i can't get it off my mind until i do, so here we go one day (probably a month ago)  as i was combing my daughter's hair i noticed that one spot in paticular on the top of her head was very dry - it was like thick layers of dry skin, that would not come out- i shudder even thinking about the feel of it on my fingers. Plus when i tried to pick at it -it only took out hair...i started to panick.what was it? how and why was it there? How could i get it to go away?

 Everyone told me it was dandruff - BUT IT WAS NOT. besides being dry it did not flake, it wasn't red, it was itchy , it didn't even bother her. it was just there annoying me.My only conclusion was that it was cradle's cap, i never knew that a child could get it as a toddler.(?)
 I instantly went online to "google" it and see what i could do and what products to use to get rid of it, and let me tell you i tried everything....from dandruff shampoos to moisturizing to baby products you name it. Nothing worked and it was steady taking over her scalp. I shudder as i think about it.

So one day i ended up taking her to get her hair trimmed and the hairdresser was shocked at what she saw and thought it was dandruff but i told her that it didn't have any signs of dandruff, and that i thought it was cradles cap. So she called her supplier and asked for a cheap way to get rid of it- because i wanted to keep it budget friendly.She came back and said that the supplier had had a similiar experience when her kids were little, and that she used.....Baking Soda!

I was VERY skeptical. But i thought what's the harm? So 3 times a week i mixed warm water and baking soda together and applied it to the dry spots and guess what?! after 3 weeks no more dry scalp! I couldn't be me more happy! One because it's gone two because it only cost me a whole 80 cents!! yahooo!!! So if you ever run into this problem with your toddler - i highly recommend baking soda. Who knew?
