    I have braids in right now. Despite keeping products to a minimum and shampooing with diluted shampoo every two weeks and using an african pride braid spray on the braids only, I am left with this crazy grey buildup all over my scalp. No matter how much I wash my braids, it won't come out!!

    What techniques would you all recommend (for washing my hair) for when I take down my braids tomorrow?

    Edited for clarification.

    I think clarifying(ACV rinse) and using a scalp scrubber will really help with the buildup

    Dilute a "clarifying shampoo", like Origin's No Deposit, and add about a teaspoon of baking soda.

    how about baking soda

    This works for me when I go overboard with my shea butter and coconut oil :wub:

    You only need about a teaspoon diluted with water or mix it with your shampoo. Only use the tips of your fingers please and not your nails.

    another one for clarifying shampoo.
    I had build up once and tried acv, baking soda, castille soap, etc. - all separately! :P

    Nothing worked 'til I tried regular old fashioned shampoo.

    Can you do the acv rince while the braids are in?

    I have braids now too and I am nervous that I will have a build up once I take mine out as well.
