A good scratch.

Failing that, your Pharmacist can recommend various products. Apple cider vinegar is reputed to relieve an itchy dry scalp.
I concur with NoMercy plus I would say any vinegar at all. Don't think odour will be an issue past about half an hour, it won't be unless someone has their nose within 5cm - you yourself may just occasionally discern it for the first couple of hours.
Oh, correction: Avoid malt vinegar - it has a distinct and rather persistent odour.
My hairdresser recommended Nizoral and it worked for me.
I have found that tea tree shampoo helps

Thanks for the suggestions, need to get something done, driving me crazy x
Have you asked anyone professional what the cause is? - it may not just be dry scalp
Make sure you haven't caight lice, ensure that you rinse your hair properly to get all the soap out and don't wash it too often as you will dry out your scalp and hair. If it continues despite all that you do, or don't as may be the case, visit your doctor for referral to skin specialist.
An itchy scalp can be due to one of several conditions and it's important to find out what's causing the itch before you can treat it properly. Simply washing your hair too often could be a reason....
Is it itching all over or just in a certain area?
Err..... grandson has just been treated for lice. They are, apparently going mad at the moment . Worth checking - easily sorted.
