Yes! As mentioned before, baby oil. I even used olive oil. My son had terrible cradle cap. It would drive me absolutely nuts. I would literally sit there with baby oil and a comb and try to pick it out. I would (very gently) use a comb in the opposite direction the hair grows. It would take off most of the dry skin. Once it has been soaking in oil for a few minutes, it usually comes off easily. Also, if you do not feel comfortable combing it out, just massaging the oil into the hair and onto her head will help alot. You wont be able to get all of it. I know you might want to try! I know I did, But I was afraid to hurt him if I did it too often.. I usually would mess with his hair like every other night after a bath. It did not bother him a bit. It did go away! After a month or so. As long as massaging it does not irritate her little noggin, you could definitely try it!
