What can be done about excessive dry flaky scalp and brittle ends?

What can be done to relieve dry flaky scalp and just dry brittle hair overall? I can grease my scalp today and tomorrow it's dry and flaky again. This happens even when I deep condition it. I have 3c/4a hair.

castor oil and rosemary,almond oil and ceder oil,or just frankincense oil works goodps.you can get all of this from mountain rose herbs.com 
Try using tea tree shampoos free of sulfates. Make sure you scalp is clean but not stripped.  Then use a little oil like grape seed or jojoba. I would also NOT grease my scalp. What you are greasing your scalp with? Your scalp should be pretty free of heavy products because that will irritate it and eventually cause build up and sebum.Good reads:http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlreading/kids-sca...http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlreading/wavy-hai...
