How often should I shampoo and use leave in conditoner?

I'm a black male with 3c type hair and as of now try to shampoo/leave in at least once a week (twice or more in some circumstances when I end up working out or swimming though). As of lately however, after about day 4 or 5 I begin to develop dry patches on my scalp, and by day 6 or 7 even "scabbing" on my scalp and usually on my side burns also. My hair is about on the shorter end of 6 inches, and I always use my leave in if I am doing a shampoo/conditioning wash, and promptly follow up with oil as well. Is there a more effective regimen to use for general shampoo/conditioning washes and leave in usage, that wont leave me with a dry scalp in between?
