ll the hair that your baby is born with will be replaced by new hair within the first six months. If your baby is born with only a few strands of hair on the scalp, new hair will start growing within a few months and by the time your baby is one-year old, the hair of your child will become thicker and stronger.  Traditionally, oiling the hair is an important part of hair care. It is a common practice to apply baby oils, having mineral oils, primarily formulated for skin care to the hair, however, these oils are usually considered more suitable for skin care than for hair care for the babies.
Natural oils such as coconut oil and olive oil are believed to be more effective for hair care and are usually considered superior alternatives to the mineral and petrolatum-based oils for hair care. The hair oil that best suits the hair of your baby depends upon the baby’s hair type.  Soaking the scalp with mineral oil is also known to loosen the flaky skin and crusts on the scalp and is considered an effective remedy for cradle cap.  Here is a list of hair oils for babies available in India believed to be good for the young tresses.
