I did a search and found exactly two helpful threads relating to dandruff…but have more questions.
First: During a recent salon visit the shampooer informed me that my dandruff is “big and clumpy” and not small/fine like her’s. She left it at a simple observation. Is there a distinction? In otherwords, does it mean something different to have “big and clumpy” dandruff?
I have had this dandruff problem for approx. the past year and a half. I have also noticed that, coincidentally, my hair has been growing more than ever and has become (oddly) beautifully healthy. People even comment on “how pretty” my hair is. Can there be a correlation between the dandruff and healthier hair? Old schoolers refer to as “growing dandruff”.
If #2 is correct, don’t I stand to risk less healthy hair by getting rid of my dandruff?
I read in another thread that white vinegar helps a lot. Is the vinegar drying or damaging to the hair? Someone also suggested adding olive oil to your conditioner. This doesn’t make your hair or scalp greasy? I ask because I think my dandruff is a result of over-oiliness (sp).
Thank you for any guidance!
