Did your doctor examine you and make a diagnosis? You describe your issue as a dry AND oily scalp simultaneously, that indicates more than just xerosis (simple dry scalp) with pruritis (itching). The increased sebum production suggests to me your scalp is trying to protect itself. Several forms of dermatitis can be worsened by seasonal changes and pregnancy hormones.
And you are pregnant at present? That limits what you might be wise to use on your skin, certainly would not pick a cheap commercial line laden with fragrance, preservatives and other known irritants. The CURLS line is available at Walmart now I believe, they have a kids range and claim to be organic. Otherwise a 'base' shampoo and conditioner at pH 4.5 to 5.5 ordered online (minimal ingredients, designed for customers to add oils and fragrance if desired).
Are you both eating a nutrient dense anti inflammatory diet? Particularly consider your intake of small oily fish (or long chain omega-3 supplement as medically advised if PG), sugar and white refined carbs. Nutrition affects the quality of your skin barrier which keeps water in, chemicals and microorganisms out. Also helps calm inappropriate immune responses and systemic inflammation.
