I get dandruff a lot in my hair and I wanna get rid of it. I don't wanna wash my hair to much. When I straighten my hair I get a lot of dandruff too and I don't wanna put oil on my scalp then I will burn my hair.

Well does the dandruff itch and is it a dry or a waxy/oily dandruff? Best scenario is that its actually product build-up or maybe your products that you are layering on your hair doesn't react well to each other and its causing flaking. You can try clarifying with bicarb or changing your products. Worst case is that it is indeed dandruff. Try taking equal parts of apple cider vinegar and water in a spray bottle and spritzing your scalp an hour before you wash your hair twice a week. This should help with the dandruff by killing the yeast that causes it. Also remember that if your dandruff is the waxy/oily kind it is feeding off the richness of the products you are putting in your hair. Try using a little less product and applying them an inch away from the scalp to see if it makes a difference. Good luck!
