    So after forgetting for a few days I took 1g niacinamide today. within 15 or so minutes I noticed some flaking when I run my fingers through my hair or along my beard line. I'm inclined to think the b3 was the cause, especially because dandruff from poor diet is accompanied by itching unlike this. Anyone else experienced this?

    I could lurk for the next three kalpas and I wouldn't find an answer to why niacinamide helps my skin but gives me dandruff when as far as I gather niacin/amide is usually fairly effective at controlling dandruff
