Oil and Dry Scalp, possible cause-and-effect?

I had never thought of this but it does make sense. I tend to use oil on my hair almost everyday, specifically olive and coconut oil, for about 8 months now. I low poo every week so im not sure if oil can cause dry scalp and it never seems to just coat my hair. Yet, i just read recently that too much can clog your pores and cause itchy scalp. Is this true? If so, how much is considered too much?
Lo-poo:organix Shea butter shampoo
Co-wash: suave coconut
Rinse out:GFTN/GVP conditioning balm
Leave in: GF daily care spray leave in
Serum-like product: still need one
Gel:LA looks sport gel/ HESMU,GFPC
Oils: olive, coconut

I think I'm normal-overly porous, medium-thick hair(although I see fine hair too), love protein

    i too use oils everyday, though i use light oils, normally i just put it on my hair not on my scalp though i do mesage my scalp with argan/rosemary oil every night..... ive never had any problems with it. if your pored are clogged you might want to consider doing a deep cleansing.
    hope that helps :)

    my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
    my hair loves conditioner only styling!
    Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
    my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.
    :hello1:

    Thanks and I don't think I ever put oil on my scalp eexcept maybe one time but I was curious since I don't think clashing is really enough

    if you never put it on your scalp then you shouldnt have any problems, i message it in my sclp to help with my hair growth. n it depends which oils you use. i would never dream bout doing that with coconut or EVOO, its just too heavy for my hair.
