goeie naand

My seun van 7 jaar het droë kolle op sy kop. Ek is nou raadop.
Gebruik tans'n baie klein hoeveelheid head on shoulder sjampoe met opknapper vir die afgelope 3 maande.Die kopvel masseer ek met olyfolie. die kolle wil net nie verdwyn. Wanneer ek sy hare borsel is sy skouers vol skilfers. Help asseblief.

baie dankie.

Hi Rose

I don't think you should be using chemicals on your daughter's hair!
What about intensive treatments?
Or try a good shampoo / conditioner like Nioxin.
