Hi momma sometimes the best thing you can do is just leave the hair and scalp alone and not use any product and not wash or put water on the hair and scalp for a while. The natural oils our hair and scalp produce help hair grow and the scalp stay healthy.

If you haven’t tried Coconut oil give it a shot, let it sit for a while and if your able too take a comb through it, wash it twice afterwards or it can leave the hair greasy, then take a comb to the scalp again maybe the day after, then try it again coconut oil and wash twice, once a month I try to do this with my girls so their hair is healthy but it gets off the dead skin on their scalp too

I use biolage ScalpSync for one daughter. The other one, Malibu Scalp Therapy is the only thing that works. It’s a bit more than store shampoo, but lasts sooooo much longer. (Even better if you know a stylist that will buy it at the wholesaler for you).
Definitely worth the investment.

It’s probably seborrihic (or however it’s spelled) dermatitis. That’s a legit medical condition. You need to get her to a dermatologist. She’s gonna need special shampoo and the like.

I have DHE (Dishydrotic Eczema), which is similar, but OTC treatments won’t work for SD like they will DHE.

My 7 year old has this issue (super dry scalp) we use Hemp Brand Shampoo and Conditioner and it works so well! If the problem persists, I would definitely see your pediatrician or dermatologist.

Wtf… go to a doctor…

Definitely go to the doctor, but apply coconut oil to the entire scalp and leave for at least an hour, overnight if she will tolerate it and then wash the hair. It’s going to feel greasy after but it will help the dry scalp. You can do this weekly

Selsun blue. Put on at the beginning of bath time just before he gets out rinse. Works a treat best thing is it’s cheap and you can buy from any supermarket. All 3 of my kids have eczema and had really bad craddle cap best advice I ever got from my paediatrician and the kids love their smurf hair

Use the hymalayan salt bar. For all dry skin, on head and body, nappy rash, eczema and so much more!!!

Try clear shampoo. My husband was like that from his medication.

Pop down to a pharmacist, they may be able to give you some answers & advice they also may recommend seeing your GP… good luck :heart:xxx

One night a week before bed time, use baby oil on the scalp, with a fine tooth comb all the way to the root brush his hair, let it set over night.
