Oily hair, itchy scalp, scaly. Remedy?

Thank you for responding. I am a 66 year old woman who is suddenly over the past couple of months suffering from oily hair. My scalp is extremely itchy and seems to become scaly. There is no sign of dandruff nor have I had any. My hair is semi-permanently died to my youthful colour and my hairdresser does not advise that I have any further perms at present. I have a lot of hair which is thick and fine. I so miss having the body of a bodywave. I look forward to your response and advice.
Kind regards
