baby oil rubbed in and leave overnight, wash out in the morning and comb through to get all the bits out.

Rub olive oil over baby's head, leave for a while and then wash off. It should loosen it.

Olive oil. It's messy but it works.

Dentinox shampoo. Smells of roses and it works (IME).

Don't worry about it. IME some babies just have it - it doesn't bother them.

capasal worked brilliantly for us, Doc prescribed it but you can get it over the counter. it's really good at de-scaling but you have to be careful not to get it in eyes as it also stinks...but did work wonders on my ds and dd.
