In a bowl, mix two eggs yolks, two teaspoons olive oil, and 1/8 cup of water. Mix until the solution is fully balanced. Depending on how much hair you have, you may want to use more or less. •Apply mixture to hair after shampooing, while hair is still damp, not wet. Let stand for 15 minutes. •Rinse with warm water.
Health Tips
Don't shampoo your hair too much, that will make it worse. 2.Try to not use water that is too hot when showering or bathing because it can only make your conditions worse by making the hair rough and frizzy. 3.Use canola oil as a hot oil treatment.

Dry flakes in the scalp is due to many different problems it may be dry skin,or some infection in the scalp or may be due to washing of your hair without prior applying oil. This causes more dryness especially in winter season. Prior to headbath you should apply oil for scalp and leave for at least minimum 1hour then you can take headbath.
Next Steps
If at all it doesn't reduce then you should consult a homeopathic doctor for further evaluation.

Hi there,  is it bleeding when you remove the flakes? Do you have similar lesion over any other part of the body? If its Yes to both questions it could be psoriasis.If No it could be seborrhic dermatitis.  A clinical examination by a doctor can confirm the  final diagnosis.
Next Steps
Get examined by a doctor, preferably a qualified homeopath, nearby you. Defenitly Homeopathy can help you to get rid of it.
Health Tips
Avoid removing flakes,  it may worsen the condition.
