oh hmm....maybe ur using a lil too much? or try a different conditioner

i know i got white flakes once n i was like what the heck? but i use Stress Coat and i know i've read other people have the same problem with it so what i did was use a lil bit less than it said on the bottle and i havent had the problem anymore.

and make sure to make the water changes when ur suppose to. depending on ur size of gallon, weekly, daily, etc.
