What can I do for an extremely dry, itchy scalp? I have used the medicated shampoos and greases over in the stores but nothing really takes care of it.

Dry scalp or dandruff can be caused by general impairment of the health, using harsh shampoos, intake of wrong foods, constipation or emotional stress. It is very important to clean your scalp to avoid dry skin and dandruff.
