I am a cosmetologist and also hv a bi racial daughter, if using a store bought shampoo, there is alot of drying agents in thm and will cause dry scalp. I suggest tea tree shampoo and conditioner, tht is important evn if u dnt shampoo daily, pls use conditioner. Tea tree is great for this and even acne and skin. U can find it in any salon tht carries professional products. It is also inexpensive and will last longer thn anythng ovr the counter. If u r looking for an ethnic product I suggest Mizani, it is fabulous for biracial hair!! Again u can use either or, hair doesn't know the color of ur skin and use both for all races in the shop. Any questions pls ask.

I tried selsum blue and it has been the best I have found so far. I have tried so many different types of shampoo and nothing, I am pleased that she is no longer complaining about her scalp.

my kids are mixed as well and i am a hairstylist. the best thing for a dry scalp is a salon shampoo like paul mitchells tea tree. the tea tree shampoos work good to cleanse the scalp and help with the pain of having it dry. my fiance(who is black) had dry scalp like that and he started using it and it took it away completely. after you shampoo it you can use any kind of curl lock for his hair so it wont dry out. i use designline on my kids.

My son is mixed too and has very curly hair. I have dry, curly, hair myself. I have used both baby oil and olive oil on both of us. It can be a little difficult to wash out sometimes but it makes the hais soft and shiny. I just use Johnson's baby shampoo and don't wash it every day (it strips what moisture the hair/head does have by itself). Good luck and let me know if you find a really good one, I think I'll need the help as my baby gets bigger (he's 13.5 months now).
