For severe dandruff, use medicated dandruff shampoo recommended by a paediatrician. Use once or twice a week depending on the severity of dandruff and doctor’s prescription.When washing the baby’s hair, gently use fingers to massage the scalp and build a good lather. Rinse with water thoroughly. Do not use any conditioners.Pat-dry the baby’s head with a towel.If the baby is prone to dandruff, then you must maintain the normal pH of the scalp, and an oil-free scalp mostly addresses the problem.
