Dry, flakey scalp.

Ok, so I successfully co-washed for about 3 months with minimal flaking. However, recently it has gotten really really bad. I tried using Yes to Carrots Scalp soothing shampoo, which has a milder sulfate in it. This seemeed to help for awhile. But, it got soo bad I had borrow some of my roommate's Selsum Blue, which worked wonders! The pyrithione zinc has really helped in the past.

I would love to stay Sulfate/Paraben free, but I cannot find any viable options for this! Suggestions? I have tried Tea Tree Oil, and Coconut Oil. The Tea Tree did nothing, and I had to use regular shampoo to get the Coconut out. Thus, defeating the purpose. Suggestions?
