  • If old enough, Head and Shoulders.

    Or, get baby shampoo especially designed for dry scalp / excema.

  • davidsmommy85 had a great suggestion.

    or a scalp treatment.

    Stay away from head and shoulders and like brands.

    if it's flaking and you are worried about dandruff seek a doctor. Dandruff is caused by a fungus, and you'll need a prescription to properly treat it. (since most otc brands contain tar that only mask the problem or make it worse, especially if it's not true dandruff and something like dry skin instead).

  • the olive oil and egg yolk have lots of protein in it, which is great for your hair. so feel free to massage into your scalp AND hair ends. :)

  • My son had bad skin when he was born & scalp issues also. I used Spectro body wash & Spectro eczema hydrating cream for kids& it helped & eventually wet away on its own. Its pricey but well worth it & lasts a while.
