I haven't been doing much with Mocha Baby's hair. I will occasionally run a super soft brush through it to loosen what little cradle cap she has. When she takes her evening bath she loves for me to slowly pour water over her head. The plain water is enough to rinse away sweat and even spit up. I'm careful to keep her face dry. I always have my face buried in her hair. If I don't like the smell I may do a gentle shampoo with diluted castille soap. Otherwise, I leave her hair alone.
The other day, I noticed some dryness and tried the following:
1. Wash with diluted castille soap. Try 1 tbsp castille soap to 8 oz water (you'll have plenty left over to use many times).
2. Rinse profusely.
3. Pat dry with soft towel.
4. Dime size Trader Joe's Refresh Conditioner (suave natural tropical coconut may be another good choice). Massage through hair and leave in.
5. Dime size drop of Grapeseed oil (may also try jojoba,unrefined coconut, or other light oil).
6. Allow to air dry.
The result was super silky and moist hair!
