It is really bad and I am wondering what to do. She really needs to wash it every day, and that isn't always practical. I have stopped using conditioner and am using a mild shampoo but it hasn't helped much. Has anyone got any ideas of a good shampoo to use? It needs to be gentle as she has got very sensitive skin and reacts to all sorts of stuff. Thanks very much, I am tearing my own hair out trying to find a solution for this one.
Most high street shampoo contains Sulfar lauryl sulfate (SLS) which is an extremely harsh chemical - it's used to clean industrial oil! This could be sripping her hair and making it worse. Try a shampoo without SLS (health shop probably the best bet) although Waitrose have quite a good selection especially in their childrens range.
