After every bath (when scalp is soft) use a fine toothed comb at about 10 degrees from the scalp and comb it all out. Do this several times from every direction. This should start to work, do it a few times per week.

Don't use shampoo as it will dry out the scalp. I found the best thing to use was olive oil. Rub some onto her head just before bed at night and leave it there to soak in. After a couple of days it should clear up.
