Itchy scalp/head - definitely not nits - help!

As the subject says really!

I have an itchy head which started itching on Sunday morning - sort of a burning sensation.

I've just nitty-grittied and it's definitely not nits - there is nothing there on the comb/paper. In fact I dry combed and now I've wet combed with a bit of conditioner.

No new shampoo, hair product - they've all be in use for about a month (newest product) and I'm not normally allergic to anything other than prescribed drugs.

I have used bio washing powder as I ran out of non-bio, but my body (where the clothes are) seems okay. Maybe a bit itchy, but I think more psychosomatic.

Diagnose me?!

Dandruff ! start using head and shoulders/similar type shampoo this should sort it out !

It could be an allergy to sodium laurel sulphate. Try using. Sls free shampoo & take an anti histamine.
