Default Dry Flaky Skin for 6 month old when brushed

I recently brushed my puppy for the first time in 2-3 weeks (a few days after she came back from the groomer) and noticed that everywhere I brushed, dry flaky white skin seem to be coming off like powder.

Did I bath her too often? Does she have some type of dandruff condition? Is this common during shedding season (she seems to be shedding a lot of her coat right now)? I should note that she is not itching all that much at all. And her coat itself looks great.

I'm thinking of adding a table spoon of olive oil to her food after reading about someone who had success with this home remedy.

Any tips would be appreciated.
