So you do have hair under there!!!

AdvantagesReally Works

DisadvantagesStings eyes.

"...is green with the name Dentinox on the front. It also has a happy little baby on the front. When you get the bottle out of the box, it is rather a plain bottle, with just the basics on. It has DENTINOX Cradle cap treatment shampoo written on the front. And the Instructions for use, ingredients, etc on the back. This is not on a label, it's printed straight onto the bottle. So you don't need to worry about bits of label coming off if you get it wet. It ..." Read review

Wash that skin away!

AdvantagesNice smell for a medicated shampoo, works quick;y, price.

DisadvantagesCan sting eyes

"...bath creams and to use Dentinox Cradle Cap shampoo which was given to me on prescription. However, the shampoo can be bought at most supermarkets, chemists and stores such as Boots and Superdrug. '''Price''' The shampoo costs between £2.20-£2.50 - however you can get this on prescription. I find the price to be reasonable, as it is a medicine, lasts for a while and has proven results. '''Packaging and Ingredients''' The shampoo comes ..." Read review

This takes some time

AdvantagesWorks

DisadvantagesTakes a while to see a change

"...time. Remembering when I first used Dentinox I knew it wouldn't be a quick fix and my daughters cradlecap wouldn't disappear just like that. It was quite bad before I started using the shampoo, so I knew it would take a while. Using this shampoo on her once every 3 days started to make a difference after about two weeks, and when I combed her hair after the bath I could see flakes coming out. It took about 5-6 weeks for the cradlecap to disappear ..." Read review

My poor unphotogenic baby! Review with images

Advantagesworks effectively, smells nice, doesn't sting if gets in eyes

Disadvantagestakes a few weeks to clear up, contains Sodium Lauryl Sulphate

"...an alternative method, and saw Dentinox Cradle Cap shampoo in my local tescos. It's widely available and easy to find in both chemists and supermarkets. I hadn't tried it previously as I had actually heard several people say not to bother, as it didn't work. So I was a bit dubious that it would actually have any effect at all. I got a 125 ml bottle for £2.25 in tescos. Given that you only need to use a teaspoons worth (2-3 ml) at a time, it's a ..." Read review

Babies with scaley heads, no they aren't mutants! Review with images

AdvantagesCan work, clears up scales.

DisadvantagesSometimes can't work. Smells nasty.

"...shampoo. I'd already been using Dentinox colic drops and had noticed they had a cradle cap shampoo in their range, when my little boy started to develop his cradle cap I went straight out and got the Dentinox shampoo as it was a brand I trusted. Cradle Cap- For those who have never experienced cradle cap and do not know what it is, I will explain a little about it. Cradle cap is a form of dermititus which causes large, dry flakes and an itchy ..." Read review

Dentinox cradle cap shampoo

AdvantagesIt's working so far

DisadvantagesNone

"...I purchased a bottle of Dentinox Cradle cap Treatment Shampoo from Boots mainly because this was the only one I could find and that they sold to combat cradle cap. A 125ml bottle cost me £2.71 so in my opinion it is not too expensive. This shampoo is said to be specifically and clinically tested to treat cradle cap. The shampoo is a clear liquid. It's somewhat thick but not as thick as an adult shampoo. It has a slight chemical smell but it is not ..." Read review

Cradle Cap? What Cradle Cap? Review with images

AdvantagesClears up cradle cap quickly, not too expensive, lovely smell, widely available

DisadvantagesNot a "tear free" formula, very plain packaging

"...over 40 years. Other Dentinox products include: - Teething Gel - Colic Drops What I have noticed with Dentinox products is that they tend to say that you can use their products from a young age. E.g. when I had trouble with wind (not personally - the baby!) I could not get gripe water or any other remedies from newborn, but Dentinox colic drops COULD be used from newborn. Again, teething gel seemed to be from a younger age than the main competition. They ..." Read review

Help for crusty little heads!

AdvantagesEasy to apply and does help the condition

DisadvantagesNeeds regular use

"=== Cradle cap === Cradle cap is a condition that effects babies and leaves them with a dry, flaky scalp. My little boy is now six months and suffers with cradle cap, and although the condition doesn't seem to bother him at all, it does look a bit unsightly! And as he has very little hair, the scaly bits are quite visible. This shampoo comes in a very plain white bottle with green writing. It currently costs £2.09 in Boots, and is part of a 3 for ..."

Dentinox works

AdvantagesClears up cradle cap very quickly, smells nice

Disadvantagesnone really - plain packaging

"...I bought a bottle of Dentinox from Morrisons. It's a while since I bought it so I can't remember how much it was, not expensive though (£2 - £2.50?). Dentinox is a clear shampoo that I think has a very pleasant smell which lingers for ages. The instructions for use advise that you wet the head, massage in a small amount, rinse and repeat. I followed this and continued using the shampoo every night and Joey's cradle cap cleared in about 2 weeks ..." Read review

Smooth as a babies head..

AdvantagesCleared up really bad dry flaky skin

Disadvantagestakes a few weeks to start noticing results

"...in boots and found the Dentinox cradle cap treatment shampoo. I thought I would make my own mind up about this product rather than listen to what other people had told me. The shampoo does not come in a flash packaging, just in a bland white shampoo container with the words Dentinox cradle cap shampoo written in green. This shampoo had been specifically formulated and clinically tested to treat cradle cap and can also be kept on to be used as ..." Read review

Excellent Cradle Cap Treatment (Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo)

AdvantagesCan see it working from the first wash

Disadvantagesnone

"...I found a shampoo called Dentinox which is especially for Cradle Cap, it only cost £1.93 so I thought may as well give it a go. First thing I did when I got home was read the instructions, they tell you all about Cradle Cap and how easy it is to treat. The shampoo is very straight forward to use all you need to do is wet the baby's head with warm water, put about 2-3ml (about half a teaspoon) onto your palm and massage it gently but firmly over the ..."
