Frequent shaking of head and scratching the ears could be the symptom of ear infection. Do his ears smell? You should take him to the vet who will be able to do a diagnoses.

Cleaning ears weekly is a good habit...keep it up!!
Lab's inner ear is light pink normally, if there is any infection it turns reddish.

I used Bulfo shampoo and got good results.

Seek fr a vet advise if you feel it too serious.

Does the powder you're using kill mites too? Dogs generally acquire mites in their ears, not ticks. If you see a buildup of dark brown waxy material in his ear, it is mites and you will need to get an appropriate solution/drop to put in his ears to kill them.

You shouldn't have to clean your dogs ears that often. I clean my dogs ears 3 times a year (natural eared doberman), that is all he requires as his ears stay clean on their own.

If his ears are clean, and he is still shaking his head/itching, he could have a neurological problem and a trip to the vet would be absolutely necessary!
