[QUOTE=blank]anyone else have dandruff and acne?

i've had a really dry scalp my whole life. (i think that's what dandruff is)

i'm sitting here reading a book right now, and when i run my fingers through my hair, or scratch my scalp, thousands of dead skin cells just cover the book...literally.

i think it's amplified by taking b5...i'm not really sure.

Yes,they can be related,i too have the same problem,basically dandruff can be caused by a yeast which lives normally on our skin,but when the skin over produces sebum as it does with acne,the yeasts feed off the sebum and over produce,causing the skin to shed much faster,that,s where the flaky bits come from.
I have found that using Head and shoulders on a daily basis,the one designed for a dry scalp can help,also keeping my hair short helps.
I haven,t found a cure but these things help to keep it under control,when it gets really bad leave the head and shoulders on your scalp for a good 15 minutes before rinsing
