She curls it and uses hair spray daily. Help. Mom has short hair and usually has it permed, but we haven't been able to have a perm in a while. I use whatever shampoo I have, nothing special, but after a few days her head itches. Some days more than others. If the weather is cold she won't want it washed, and she will go up to 2 weeks without a wash. I'm thinking that it could be a build up of hair spray from daily styling, but maybe there is a better shampoo that wont cause dry scalp. We wash her hair in the bathroom sink. She can still bend over the sink and wet her hair with a cup. Then I hand her the towel and help dry. Any ideas for shampoos?
