Coconut oil for cradle cap?

So only recently Eloise has been suffering from cradle cap (from about 6 months on wards) i left it for a while as i didn't want to start adding loads of products to her scalp, then randomly one day i thought i would google and see if you could put coconut oil on it as i know you can pretty much use that stuff for anything!!

Once id done a bit of research on google i got some pure coconut oil (that had come from my Birchbox a while ago) i didn't know what to use it for on myself so i kept it in case i found a use and i then used it on Eloise. 


So Eloise is very lucky that she was born with quite a lot of hair so by 6 months i could tie it up like a little pineapple, so i did that and massaged (very gently) some coconut oil into her scalp, the reason i had to be gentle is because 1 shes still very young and 2 where the scabs were some of her hair was attached and falling out.

I left this coconut oil in for a few hours and bathed her in the evening. After her bath i put a bit more in and left it overnight, and repeated this for about 2-3 days, after that it was completely gone.

I have no officially fallen in love with coconut oil and since using it on her cradle cap i have researched online so many other different uses for it! Were defiantly going to use it in cooking more as its a lot healthier than the other alternatives.

What do you guys use coconut oil for? I'd love to hear from you as i want to find more uses for it!

Thanks once again for your continued support!
