Oh, my dandruff isn't as bad after using it either. YAY! This makes me much happy!

They mean to say theres a difference seen after 3 uses. But no you just wash your hair when you need to, so every 2-3days

My stylist told me going to bed with wet hair will increase dandruff.. I'm no pro though!

I have long hair about down to my hip bones. I have tried different conditioners over the last 20 yrs and I LOVE Redken All Soft. You'll have to go to salon to get it and it runs about $25 for a liter. It lasts quite awhile, well worth the money. I too have dry flaky scalp, like Out of the Loop, TGel doesn't work for me but Head And Shoulders with Eucalyptus Oil works wonders.
When I wash my hair I just wash the scalp and let the suds run down to the ends. Then I condition and leave in my hair for about 5 minutes before rinsing out.
Regular trimming is important too, it keeps your ends clean and less likely to get tangles. I keep my hair loosely braided at night so I don't make a rats nest of it while I sleep. During the day depending on what I am doing, I either keep it braided or up in clips on my head. I don't even brush it everyday! You might want to invest in a good brush, I prefer the boar bristle cushioned paddle brushes.

So the Argon oil is making my hair alot softer, but it is still realllly brittle. I haven't seen even a slight improvement in that aspect of it. The dandruff was better for about 3-4 days and is not back just as bad if not worse. UG!!! What is WRONG with my hair?!

Maybe I'll just chop it all off! >.<

I go to sleep with wet hair every single night. No dandruff... Perhaps if you already have it, it exacerbates things?

I swim in chlorine daily and am trying to remoisturise my hair with coconut oil. Warm it up until liquid, dip my hands, finger comb, and wrap head to sit for a while. Then I wash it out with high-qual shampoo. I never use product from any box store - very harsh stuff! Salon quality only.

I have started taking a multi-vitamin, using Moroccan oil, and shampooing/conditioning with a higher quality shampoo. I have found that my hair doesn't seem to have nearly the amount of split ends that it used to and it is growing healthier. I also don't shampoo every day but rather, every other day. I try not to tie my hair back when it's wet and to comb through it a lot more carefully after getting a shower/bath.

My hair is down to my belly button. It's thick, wavy/curly, and prone to dryness and frizz. I like to use Head & Shoulders, but I'm not super picky when it comes to particular products. My biggest thing though, for maintaining it's condition, is to keep it braided most days, and every night. If I don't the bottom layer that comes into contact with my back gets horribly tangled. It also gets covered up in extreme cold and in the sun. I only wear it loose during the day (when the work I'm doing allows that), and it only gets brushed before washing (and afterwards, but very minimally). Oh and I only braid after it's dried.
