Default Frustrated off dry scalp and high porosity! HELP PLEASE

Hola Ladies,

I started CG about 3 months ago. In the beginning my hair was a mess, but after 2-3 weeks it became better, said that some days my curls were more defined and less dry, BUT since I began with CG I suffer, yes suffer ladies, from TOO MUCH dry scalp!!
My whole life I had dry scalp (sometimes dandruff).
I did the ACV for my high porous hair and that didnt help for the flakes (It did help for my cutilcle to close). I did the brown sugar and olive oil and tea tree mix, but after I did that my hair was AWFULL !!!
I tried to put some tea tree drups in my conditioner, but also that doesnt help...it keeps up coming back and also a lot of itching !

I lost a whole lot of hair last year, so I also started CG in the hope my hair would get better and for a short time it looked it was getting better...but no. It also looks everytime I cowash I loose a lot of hair.

Im still looking for the products that fit my hair. I live in Holland and now Im only using Inecto Moisture Conditioning for my Cowash and sometime as a Leave in and after that the Garnier Fructis Endurance 24H Ultra Fixing Gel. And I also use some castor oil in dripping wet hair on my points. Is is possible I am allergic for the ingredients methylchloro isothiazolinone, methylsochlorothizalonin?

Can somebody help me out because my hair also looks a lot of times so dry and looks like a litter I want my curliesssss.
I already know about the dewpoint and all...
I hope you ladies can give me advice...
Thanks in advance.

Sorry for my english...

Since you had hair loss prior to start the CG method, the problem might still be there. Have you gone to the doctor/dermatologist lately? I would start there first. Afterward, begin to stop using your usual products one at a time for one week, then evaluate your scalp's condition.

You might also have build-up and need to do a low-poo.
You could also try a hot oil treatment before.

I'm sure others will post as well.
