Have you tried the scalp cream from moogoo? I found using the scalp cream overnight then washed in morning with the moogoo shampoo and conditioner really helped, it might take a few goes but mine is so much easier to deal with now! Also a nit comb gets the little bits out quite well, hope shes dealing with it ok, also if using a hairdryer try not to use the hottest setting x
