  • my boys 9 and 7 get this when they do not wash all of the soap out of their hair which is very very hard since we have hard water. I would check that. it will look like cradle cap if that is the case.

  • massage some aloe vera into her scalp...You can also go to Earth Clinic.. A lot of stuff I tried and it worked...

  • I get an itchy scalp from time to time. I found that the only way to stop it was to switch to Suave's Daily Clarifying shampoo and conditioner (it's the clear one). I think one of the dyes or scents in the other shampoos and conditioners was bothering me. Maybe the same thing with your daughter.
