  • rub a little baby oil on her scalp and pull a comb through it lightly

  • I agree with klatshaw. Once the dry skin is gone, after her bath, depending on how much hair she has, put a little baby lotion on her head to moisturize the skin. I used to do this for my son, and it worked well. Good luck!

  • Run some olive or coconut oil on it; don't wash it out.

  • vegetable or olive oil. It is all natural and doesnt have any chemicals like baby oil.

  • My daughter had that when she was born, so I would gently wash the top of her head with a baby cloth, and then put lotion on it for moisture.
