    Take more good quality fish oil. Also, eliminate any foods that are stressful to your body  - like gluten, possible allergens and intolerances.

    Many people wash their hair too frequently and use harsh shampoos, drying heat and styling products. All of this dries the scalp and makes it feel itchy. Jason's Organic Tea Tree Oil Shampoo (you can find it at or most beauty supply stores) normalizes the scalp and gets rid of dry, itchy scalp.

    Don't shampoo your hair every day or even every other day. Wait several days between shampoos--a week if your hair isn't the super oily type. (This may seem like a contradiction to say you can have dry scalp and oily hair simultaneously, but not so!) 

    Gently massage the tea tree oil shampoo into your scalp. Rinse thoroughly with cool water. Try to avoid heat for a while and air-dry your hair instead. Don't load it down with styling products that contain alcohol. If you can go without hair spray (same reason--nearly all hair sprays contain alcohol), do so. If not, use only a very tiny spritz.

    With this regimen, your hair should feel soft and healthy, and your dry itchy scalp should be a thing of the past.

    I myself faced this problem too. My mother helped in solving this problem by suggesting that I apply coconut oil on my head and massage it on my scalp in a circular manner to ensure that coconut oil seeps into my hair-roots.  Then I let my hair soaked with coconut oil for 2 to 3 hours before washing it off with a high-quality herbal shampoo. This solution not only handled the dry scalp but also prevented hair fall and promoted better-looking and healthier hair.

    Coconut oil is beneficial for handling dry scalp to a great extent. In my country, many women use coconut oil for hair.

    Using shampoo every second day usually helps with the problem. Try using one that has moisturizer in it like a Dove brand or Head and Shoulders if you are having flake issues.
