How can hair be dry and oil at the same time?!?

I’m in need of some advice. I’m experiencing some dry scalp with little flakes. Lately I’ve thought it was dandruff but instead of yellow flakes, they are white. My stylist keeps saying it’s because I don’t wash my hair enough towards the top of my scalp, but even when I do, I still experience these flakes. I use the SheaMoisture Deep Moisturizing Shampoo and double shampoo with the Trader Joe’s shampoo. Should I change shampoos and opt for a clarifying shampoo then a moisturizing shampoo? Please help!

It could be your diet? Try limiting gluten, sugar and diary to see if that helps? Dry scalp can be a sign of a few things - hormone imbalance, candida (fungal growth), water is too hot, over-washing, harsh ingredients. 

Try hair masques or leave-in conditioners with castor oil, neem oil, jojoba oil. Sulphur shampoo.

Thank you so much! I’ll definitely give it a try!
