sounds like build up, maybe try to clarify? ACV rinse, baking soda, or lemon-aid are some of the ways, or use a clarifing condish as a CO-wash like VO5 kiwi& lime, VO5 vanilla mint, or Suave daily clarifing condish. Do some of those products listed have cones? I know for sure the GF C&S does, maybe cones are weighing your hair down.
