Congratulations on the newest member of the family! Joy!
Kudos to hair companies that have the travel packs--money savers! What doesn't work can be used for shaving lotions or hand wash.
I started all of mine with baby oil for cradle cap, and then varied from there.
Coming from a family that has all the hair types,and having children whose hair types range from 1a-3c, we vary in what we use. But porosity makes a HUGE difference for us in determining what we buy. Not only do we save money, but we now have staple products.
