I have had a problem with my scalp being extra dry and no matter what I do it just never goes away. I have thick, curly, black hair and I can't seem to get rid of this, does anyone have some real working advice?

Firstly stop using strongly scented products, its possible you're having an allergic reaction to them.
Secondly stay away from any shampoos and conditioners that have silica in them, this is bad news for your hair and scalp as it just coats it with plastic in order to make it look shiny. Pantene and Head & Shoulders are the worst two offenders for this.
Another thing is go see your doctor, as you may have psoriasis. Especially if you get really flaky patches behind your ears. They can prescribe some hydrocortisone cream which should take some of the itchiness and flaking away.
1. Use a clarifying shampoo
2. condition, condition, condition and make sure its a moisturising conditioner that you're using.
3. Use olive oil to treat your hair once or twice a week - Simply rub olive oil into your hair, wrap some kind of saran wrap or shower cap on your head and ket the olive oil soak for 30 min.
