Dry scalp/Overprotective Sebaceous glands, help!

I have type 3A curls. My scalp is very flakey, for the longest time I thought it was product build up but now I am starting to believe my scalp is dry. I wash my hair everyday (which is probably why my scalp is dry) but if I don't then my hair gets oily immediately and my curls are weighed down. I believe I'm stuck in a vicious cylce of hair washing that leads to dry scalp that then leads to an overproduction of sebum which then leads to oily hair and then another hair wash. Any suggestions for this issue? Or ideas for products to use? Also my hair falls out quite often, could that be tied to this oily hair, dry scalp issue?
