    Default dry scalp shampoo for toddler?

    My just turned 2 year old has developed bad dandruff and dry scalp. What can I use to wash his hair? Would Head & Shoulders shampoo be too strong for him at this age?

    Seems he's going to have dry skin issues as he also has eczema on his back. If anyone can recommend any products or things they do for dry skin/scalps on their kids that would be great.

    Massage scalp with tepid pure (not refined or blended) olive oil, leave for 20 minutes or so, then wash hair with 1tsp of bi carb in some water to make a smooth paste, then rinse with 1tsp apple cider Vinegar in 1cup water, then rinse with fresh water, or you could use a mild non sulphate non conditioning shampoo after the olive oil.

    Missie mack, you know I kinda thought the same thing about bicarbonate drying the skin but I've had a really itchy flaky head lately due to hormones and the weather and I wanted to stay away from chemicals in the anti dandruff shampoos as I'm pregnant. So I tried it a few days ago and it actually cleared the flakes up and eased the itching so much! If you condition with the vinegar afterwards it neutralises the bi carb. OP, I'd try Des1102's suggestion and see how it goes!
