  • There are Johnson and Johnson Moisturizing shampoos and body washes. They work great on my kids' hair when they have issues with craddles cap.

  • Get a shampoo with tea tree oil. Trader Joes has a very mild one. Avalon Organics has good one, though it can be pricey

  • I was told by my Dr it was ok to use on my 3 yr olds head. Just to make sure her head is tilled way back. So it does not get in her eyes. She never complained.

  • Try a shampoo with tea tree oil. Or just buy the bottle of oil and massage it on her scalp.
