***NOTE: We no longer use this shampoo for MyItchyBoy***
I discovered that a solid shampoo called Soak and Float shampoo from Lush has done wonders for MIB’s flaky scalp. We saw good results in almost three days and now use it about once a week. The only trouble is, the stuff doesn’t smell so good when you’re using it. However, once washed and dried it is not noticeable.
Besides the constant flakes and head scratching, it was getting tricky as his hair gets longer and more and more Epaderm Ointment was starting to get pasted into it. Oilatum Bath Additive does an adequate job, but doesn’t really cut through the build up.
The unexpected part of this new discovery was the fun that can be had given him demon horns, a mohican or an Elvis quiff with the lather. It gives me and him a few minutes amusement before the wails start getting it washed out. Still, that just makes him more of a normal child.
