I have to wash my hair every week because I am very active and sweat easily. And I want to ensure that my hair is clean. Today I washed (usually wash twice) and after the second was I still had some build up. I am trying to figure out what else can I do?

What is it that is causing the buildup? Is it conditioner or the shampoo itself? Here are some tips (though some may be a little unconventional).

ACV rinse. Many use a rinse of Apple Cider Vinegar and water as a final rinse after shampooing. Look on the homemade recipe forum for the right recipe.

Dawn dish detergent. Yep, the stuff you wash dishes with. It cuts grease, soooo. I use this as my first and second wash with water as hot as I can stand it. I follow with a final shampoo of TresSEMMEE Deep Cleansing Vitamin C shampoo.

Goo Gone. I was like :shocker: when I saw this, but then it made total sense. I do not do this but will consider if I think I have buildup that would require this treatment. What you do is saturate the loc with the stuff and then wash THOROUGHLY. I read that your locs will be very dry, so you will have to put the moisture back in.

I would not do the Goo Gone method on a regular basis due to the drying affect.

Good luck.

Sweat isnt something that builds up on the body...If you still have dirt after you wash, you are using something that is causing the dirt to cling, or your shampoo/method or washing may need to be more thorough. Try a good clarifying shampoo(i use suave)...acv rinse will help too.

Rinsing after each workout will also help dramatically.

I normally use Dr Bonners soap to shampoo and squeeze, squeeze, squeeze my locs..

Try watering down your shampoo to make it thinner/watery before applying it to the scalp; this makes rinsing easier.

Wash the actual locks themselves using a "milking motion" if your locks can withstand it.

Make sure you rinse thoroughly.
