Oily scalp buildup: Dandruff, Sebum or Product residue?
Hey everyone!

I've noticed that sometimes when I scratch my head there are some soft/oily patches. When I look at my fingernails I find some oily residue that is a similar texture to hair paste.

I'm not sure if it could be due to product buildup (of styling creams and pastes), of silicones in my conditioner or sebum buildup. I typically use the L'Oreal Ever Cream sulfate free shampoo and conditioner and the Garnier Sleek and Shine leave in conditioner.

I started using the Head and Shoulders 2 in 1 shampoo once or 2 times per week to help, and I guess it's working alright, but it leaves my medium length hair (~ 4 inches) frizzy and dry.

I'll probably start using Alice bands instead of styling products to prevent hair damage and buildup (if this is the case).

I'd appreciate any tips, advice or input if you have experienced this or know about it!

P.S. I'm trying to grow my hair to my collarbone!
