Tips on dry scalp?

I've always have a problem with dry scalp but this winter has gotten worse. I've tried switching shampoo & conditioner brands, washing my hair with cold water, rinse with vinegar and apple cider vinegar, and nothing works so far. I have dark hair and it's embarrassing that you can easily see the flakes. Any advice? Thanks.

I haven't tried it yet, but someone told me that the Head & Shoulders Green Apple 2 in1 shampoo/conditioner combo is good.  I'm going to pick some up soon.

Hot oil treatments? You can use olive oil, almond oil...

Have you tried Tea Tree oil?  It clears up dandruff and stops itching.  I think Paul Mitchell tea tree shampoo/conditioner are awesome, and easily found.  DH always uses them for dandruff and I have an immune disorder that can make me insanely itchy, and oh man that stuff works on itch!!

Are you massaging the conditioner into your scalp?

Coconut oil. It's amazing for your skin, hair, and nails. Make sure you buy refined, organic coconut oil though. I buy two large tubs on amazon for $15 shipped. I use it in cooking, my hair, oil pulling, as lotion, you name it!

I would use coconut oil. I personally use an organic coconut oil since it doesn't undergo the process like a lot of coconut oils tend to. I would also try Tea Tree Oil to help.

I normally use Head & Shoulders & my scalp is not reallydry. But a co-worker suggested switching shampoo often works for her. So I switched and made it worse. Going back to Head & Shoulder til I find something works.
