MAD dandruff - Baking soda going wrong?

A funny thing about kids is that they're awfully honest. So, when my kid sister and her friend asked me "Z, why is there sand all over your head?", I decided to go home and see what was happening.Turns out, there was so much "sand" (aka DANDRUFF) on my head that I felt like I was that "Sand-man" monster from Spiderman. There was a beach on my head.So I asked master Google about it, and found a lot of people were writing that baking soda can cause problems due to its awful high pH (about 10), even if you do the vinegar thing afterwards. Which is weird, because there are a lot of people ALSO saying that BS did wonders for them.So I wanted to know if any of you had similar BAD experiences with baking soda, and also open up the discussion about it.Also, I read about a DIY shampoo recipe that was like, 1 part HONEY to 3 parts water. Any of you ever used that stuff? Since I can't afford to buy dreadsshampoo yet, my only other options are regular clarifying shampoo and other DIY stuff.

Oh, and also - my BS ACV recipe is pretty much what SE recommends, 1 tablespoon to 1 cup water. I'm also rinsing the bs before doing the acv, as to not let them react.

So I'm actually using too little soda? I thought only using too much was bad, not using too little... And what about the vinegar?

Thanks people! Thing is, I'm having far more dandruff than I've ever had... Then again, I just combed out my crochet dreads- maybe all that pulling and hurting has killed off more than just a few skin cells on my head...

So, during today's BS wash I noticed the bs kind of becomes this very thin, almost foamy layer on my scalp, which I believe must be good. The thing is that my dandruff is now forming big flakes instead of sand, so the flakes slide down my hair and get locked in the few knots I have now at the start of my little natural journey... I don't wanna comb/mess up my hair trying to get them out, but I can't leave it there - it's freaking ENORMOUS! If you ever had a fish, you can think of them as those flakes people feed fish with. I'm using 1.6 spoon per cup of bs now
