DS has a really dry scalp. He has a beautiful head of curly hair but it desperately needs a cut. Hence when his hair is short it'll be a lot more obvious, but easier to treat.
What works best on a young child? Is there a bi-carb paste you can make, or is olive oil and combing best?

You can get a scalp cream from MooGoo. It's brilliant.

How often do you wash his hair? DD2 had really dry flakey scalp around 2 years of age and I stopped washing her hair with shampoo, just used water - amazingly her hair didn't get greasy or look like it needed a wash. I only started using shampoo again when she was about 5 and her long hair was getting difficult to brush etc.

Raw honey and water. I use it on my DD as well as myself however I'm still going through the transition stage of no poo. Honey contains no nasty chemicals and it smells good too. Also doesn't sting the eyes. Honey is soothing and anti microbial as well as antibacterial.
