My son had dry scalp and would scratch his head a lot. The pediatrician told me to wash his hair with diluted Head and Shoulders and the problem went away. Since then I have always used Johnsons Baby Shampoo. The one time I switched shampoos his head started itching and drying out again. Maybe it's allergy related. Also, the pediatrician told me to make sure you are rinsing the hair very well. I always use fresh water from the faucet. Any soap residue left behind can also cause itching.

My 5 year old son does the same thing. I have changed shampoo for him and it is nowhere near as bad.
