Dandruff/ dry scalp

Dandruff throughout the year, irrespective of the weather. Tried lemon juice, hair oil, anti dandruff shampoo, henna but to no avail. They itch constantly. Even washing my hair every second day has not helped. I have dry skin in general, but the dandruff problem has gotten worse in the past year. Please advise.
