In brief: Yes

You can use mineral oil to loosen the scales and then wash with a gentle baby shampoo.
Do not use the products that have lavender or other scents. Use the mineral oil at night and wash hair. Use your fingers to gently loosen the flakes. You can also use a very soft brush after applying the mineral oil to loosen the flakes.
