Dry Scalp can be a problem with anyone and at any time of the year. But it mainly depends upon the way you take care of your scalp and maintain the cleanliness. It can easily be identified if everytime you comb. Its cause is usually the result of dehydrated sebaceous glands. This dehydration can be due to extreme climates, not drinking enough water or skin conditions like psoriasis or eczema.
Dandruff which is commonly confused with dry scalp is caused by yeast or Fungus. These are normally found on the scalp without causing problems, however, if it grows unchecked (possibly due to hormone imbalances, stress, immune suppression, infrequent shampooing, illness, or increased oil production), there is mild inflammation that produces dead skin cells. The dead cells mix with oil and clump together, making them appear white and flaky. Sometimes the flake appears yellowish.
Use Natural Oils
During the winter, you may find that your scalp is drier than other times of the year and this is normal. The key to combating dry scalp is to incorporate natural oils into your hair care regimen. Olive and coconut oil has antifungal and antibacterial properties and they also absorb easily into the scalp. Jojoba Oil most closely resembles sebum or the oily secretion of the sebaceous glands that acts as a lubricant for the hair and skin and provides some protection against bacteria. Some other great oils are jojoba oil, coconut oil, tea tree oil and castor oil. Oils work best when sealing in moisture from water.

Use Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar rinses are great as well. Mix a solution of 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar to 3 cups of water, pour into a spray bottle, saturate hair, cover with a plastic cap, and let sit for 20-30 minutes. “This will help with many irritating scalp conditions like psoriasis, eczema, and dandruff. It rinses out clean, removes product buildup, and also adds shine and restores the pH to the hair. A few drops of rosemary or tea tree oil will boost this rinse. Those with a very sensitive scalp should use caution when adding essential oils and may find comfort by increasing the amount of water used for the mix.
