    I don’t know if it’s dandruff or not. While I don’t see flakes, I don’t wear dark clothes to see them. I have itching around the bottom of the back of my hairline, and the top of my scalp “burns”slightly, like a mild sunburn. If I scratch my entire head, it feels good, but the top then burns. A mirror shows a normal scalp. I will try the vinegar. And if I smell like a tossed salad, I’ll invite someone over for dinner and grill steaks to go with it!
