well your build up is probaly from using products on the no no list, so it would be a good idea do to one last sulfate poo to get rid of the build up, as for the products that you should be using, anything with no cones or sulfates, i personally like to use things as natural as i can. my fave is oil. bt lots of curlies use different things, its just a matter of finding what works for you

my hair: 3c, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

I also blog about my hair journey, please feel free to read and comment/ask questions http://www.naturallycurly.com/blogs/...air-blogs/2494
