I've come to the oil slick in the road. How do I get through it?
I've been doing CG for about a week now and I've come to the point where my hair and roots (especially roots) feel somewhat greasy and I feel like my hair looks dirty
It is not the same kind of greasy look I would get back when I used sulfates and cones. I don't think it's product residue as I clarified first day and since then have cowashed twice and lowpooed once. I use silicone free or water soluble silicone products. Perhaps I'm using too much conditioner or need to rinse better? I'm trying to avoid using low poo or cowashing every day and let things with my scalp work themselves out, but I don't want to look like I do not have a proper hygiene routine lol. I knew this period of grossness would come, but until it passes, how do I disguise it? Should I low poo more often? Should I concoct a refreshing spray to use? What did you do to get through this period when your hair looked WORSE before it looked better?
Thanks in advance,

Growing out bleached highlights Fall 2012, growing out dyed hair March 2013. Makes for a confusing mix of properties. Learning how different processes affect hair properties.
