just a few jumbled thoughts on the subject....
are you sure it's dandruff? it could be that you're not rinsing the BS out of your hair and it's drying and leaving flakes. it could be that it's the build-up from years of using hair product getting removed from your hair.
my hair went through a really nasty phase when i went no 'poo while the build up was being removed and while my hair learned how to balance itself again (oil and pH).
might also be that BS is too drying for your hair. i started with BS, but i only rarely use it anymore - it totally sucks the moisture right out of my hair, and i imagine if i used it a lot it'd probably dry my scalp out too.
also, i'm not sure you're doing yourself any favors by doing it gradually. it makes it harder to tell what's going on, and might also prolong the period of transition for your hair.
