My scalp is always itchy and I have dandruff

For a while now, my scalp will get super itchy 1-2 days after washing it and when I scratch it, I get this white creamy gunk under my nails. I also have a lot of dandruff, so whenever I scratch, it gets all over my shoulders and clothes. I've tried dandruff shampoos but quit using them a while ago. Now I just started the devacurl treatment so I wouldn't want to try something harsh that would contradict it.

    Did the dandruff shampoos work? If so, use them and just deep condition more often. Maybe use a pre shampoo oil treatment on the bottom half of your hair. (Just olive or coconut oil a few hours or the night before works fine.)

    If those shampoos didn't work, see a doctor. It could be SD and that requires a prescription shampoo.
