I started using Goatsmilk shampoo and conditioner for DD3, who suffers from eczema, after bad flare ups from normal products.  Her eczema has been better over the last year, but I notice that from the moment she is in the bath and I have the shampoo on her, she starts scratching.

Funnily enough, the cheap bubble bath ($1 from Coles) does NOTHING to her.  Except make her happier to take baths.

Can someone please recommend me another shampoo/conditioner?  I only wash her hair once a fortnight (with products, it is always tied up in plaits and the outer layer gets wet so will wash off surface dirt, etc)

Thanks

There's oatmilk ones or there's a brand called QV which is for people with sensitive skin and dermititis etc. Not sure whether its suitable for DD's age but might be worth asking the pharmacist.
I've also heard there is a product range for babies Gaia or something which I know adults who use because other products irritate their skin.

Thanks

DD is 3 - so most products should be ok for her I am guessing

I use QV body and face wash, which I really like. It's does lather up so I'm sure it would be fine to use on hair. I'm pretty sure they do have a shampoo and conditioner as well.

I use MooGoo shampoo and conditioner which are really low irritant. It might be a perfume or something in the shampoo that's not working for your daughter.
