Dandruff Versus Dry Scalp
You should schedule an appointment with a dermatologist to determine your specific scalp condition. The two may be overlapping conditions or isolated.
Dandruff is called Seborrhea
Dandruff is the medical condition known as Seborrhea. It is probably the most common causes for dry scalp although there are other potential causes include psoriasis, and fungus, for example. I would recommend showing to a dermatologist if otc anti-dandruff shampoos have not helped.
