Does putting conditioner on your scalp cause the roots to be weak?

So my scalp has a tendency to be very itchy and dry, but I read somewhere that putting conditioner on your scalp causes your roots to be weak, and might contribute to it falling out. Since fallout is a concern of mine, I've been avoiding doing that. However, in the past, conditioning my scalp has been the main answer to my dry scalp. I've tried not using shampoo, but it makes my hair greasy. I might try it again though. I also do oil massages nightly for nutrition and growth.

Make sure you're using a sulfate free shampoo, I recommend Shea moisture shampoos they really cleanse your hair but don't strip your hair of it's natural oils. But, if you have THICK dry hair I recommend co-washing. co-washing is basically washing your hair with a silicone free conditioner. It all depends on what YOUR hair likes. Experiment experiment experiment. Theres more info on co-washing on the video
