Okay, so my daughters scalp has been REALLY dry the last few weeks. It's BAD, I mean flakes and redness, it almost looks like there are raised area's in a couple of places where there might be "scabs" under the flakes. I haven't been pulling her hair back since I noticed. I have also only been washing it every 3 days so not to dry it out further?
Does anyone have any suggestions? She is ULTRA sensitive to shampoo and conditioners because she is allergic to Sulfer and Sulfa which almost all have in them. I am desperate. It's just getting worse, her pediatrician told me to not worry it's just the weather, but it's never done this before. Has anyone else experienced this?
I've been putting a very mild leave in condition on it and it's not helping, I am about ready to douse her head in oil to help it??

Run some coconut oil on her scalp twice a day. Stay away from Johnson's products; some of them are fairly toxic : www.cosmeticsdatabase.com
