One thing that might be helpful is to massage your scalp with oil before you wash your hair. You want to use a carrier oil, like jojoba oil, olive oil, coconut oil, etc... You can also mix in a few drops of any type of essential oil if you have them (although those are pricey). 
I commented on the last answer with my scalp oil recipe. Here are additional tips:Scrunch in moisturizers  and styling products with your head upside-down, then smooth a little over the back of your hair from the nape on down. This means older hair gets more moisture and love, and the bottom gets fewer tangles.Don't brush; detangle wet in the shower with conditioner and a wide-tooth comb. Finger-comb with refresher spray between washes.Use the L.O.C. or L.C.O. method of applying products; L is liquid or Leave-In, O is Oil, and C is Cream or Gel. The idea is that with 2 or 3 products layered strategically, moisture is sealed in.Do styles that require less manipulation of the hair OR styles that protect the ends of your hair. If your hair is not protein-sensitive, deep condition with a light protein deep conditioner sometimes (sometimes, you should use one with no protein also).
