Sounds like product build-up. Have you talked to a stylist about professional shampoos/conditioners or a clarifying shampoo that you could use? Over time of using the same shampoo/conditioner (particularly drug store brands) they leave build up and residue.

In the meantime, dry shampoo is really great for battling oil in your hair and making it look clean. I like Batiste brand.

This may sound crazy, but the best thing to do when that happens is to wash your hair with Dawn dishwashing liquid to remove the product buildup. The shine will come back again. I usually do it every few months when needed. My daughter’s hair is the same way as you’ve described, and it works beautifully for her too.

do you put the conditioner on your roots?  technically you should keep conditioner like…3 inches from your roots… so that the oils form it dont get into your scalp. i’d try the conditoner, but only on the ends of your hair ๐Ÿ™‚

Using baking soda when you wash your hair can help too. Just make a paste with water and baking soda and rub it on your scalp. It does the same thing as more expensive clarifying shampoo.

Good luck!

Ooh yeah I’ve heard about using dishwashing soap–it’s supposed to clarify.

Well good luck, I’m sure your hair will be back to itself soon enough. ๐Ÿ™‚
