Dry scalp solutions

My 16 month old daughter has a dry flakey scalp. I live in the desert so there's no moisture here so we are always lathering her up with lotion. What can I do for her dry and flakey scalp? Thanks!

  • i know this will sound crazy but it really works...rub some olive oil in her hair let it sit for like 5 mins then wash it out it will leave her hair a little oily but it wont be dry...i used it on my niece

  • my son was the same way and I was told to use head and shoulders and it totally cleared up! its like an older form of cradle cap

  • I find if I use to much shampoo and dont rinse it out properly it looks like she has a dry scalp but it's really just dried soap that's flaking off
