too embarrassed to get a haircut.

In the last couple of months, my scalp has escalated from 'a bit dry' to 'disaster area.' What the hell is going on?

I've always gotten a little dandruffy in the middle of winter, but this year is mysteriously different, and worse. We're not talking little flakes-- my scalp is downright scaly, and if I don't pull an Ally Sheedy and shake it out thoroughly on a regular basis, it's really noticeable. Some of the detached chunks of scalp have enough area that they don't shake out, and have to be pulled out individually. It's worst around my hairline and my part, but it's definitely there all over my head.
It's even happening in my eyebrows.
I'm way, way overdue for a haircut, but I'm not bringing my gross head anywhere near a hairdresser until this gets better. What do I need to do? I don't wash my hair super often, because that seems to make it worse, though the shampoo and conditioner I use are allegedly moisturizing. Clearly Head & Shoulders is not gonna cut it. What's going on?
