What does it mean when your head itches and you don't have lice/dry scalp or dandruff?

In brief: Itch

Itching scalp could be due to all the causes you listed, but it also could be due to a fungal infection.
The type of shampoo you use can also cause this so i recommend switching to a hypoallergenic product if you haven't already. Also stress can sometime result in somatic symptoms such as itchiness, see your doctor soon to find the cause and get relief.
