Thanks for the query

It looks like u r suffering from dandruff. Keep your hair well moisturized, also make sure u use dhampoo called Nizoral 3 times a week, preferable was your scalp every alternate day with this. It will reduce the symptoms significantly. Seek help from a dermat to rule out fingal infection of the scalp
