  • Try every other day bathing her or washing her hair every other day. You need natural oils in your hair.

  • maybe you are putting to much on and are not getting off. Or you can try other baby shampoos.

  • Are there flakes in the hair/ could be some craddle cap. My dd is 21 months and still has a dry spot.

  • I agree the shampoo could be drying out her scalp. Wash only every other day or even 3 days if her hair or head isn't "dirty". Maybe apply a little lotion or baby oil to her scalp after her bath.
