Nope. The opposite is true, Washing your hair will get rid of the dandruff while not washing it will cause irritation and give you dandruff. However if you dont wash your hair for like months then the natural oils in your hair will go to a balanced state and you wont have dandruff and your hair will go really nice. But to achieve this takes months of uncomfortable dandruff hair. To avoid dandruff wash it about every three days. If you wash it too often then the shampoo will strip your hair of the natural oils so dont wash it everyday.
