Hey ladies my 2 year old has recently began having a problem with a dry itchy scalp. I recently started trying head and shoulders but I use it maybe three times a week and it hasnt helped. Does anyone have any suggestions or experience with this problem.

I use tea tree oil. A few drops on the scalp, rub it in, let it set over night, and wash as usual. Also helps keep lice away.

coconut oil or tea tree oil both work well, you don't have to use the oil itself a shampoo with them in it works. i had a horrid itchy scalp last summer when i started working outside and in swimming pools on a regular basis again. i got a shampoo w/coconut oil in it and it worked wonders

Neem oil shampoo. Steer clear of anything with sodium lauryl sulfate.
