Here are all the products I have used since I clarified when it worked and got rid of everything. I don't use these products consistently, these are just everything I have used since clarifying. The only products I use consistently (every 3 days when I wash my hair) are shampoo, conditioner, detangler, and curl defining cream.
-Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo
-Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner
-L'oreal Kids Tangle Tamer for Wet and Dry Hair
-I tried out this shampoo one day. I can't remember if it was before or after I clarified so I'll put it: L'oreal Kids Strawberry Smoothie Shampoo
-Morrocan Oil Treatment
-Morrocan Oil Curl Defining Cream
-I used AG Beach Bomb one day to try it out
-Morrocan Oil Hydrating Styling Cream
-L'oreal Liss Ardent Thermal Reconstructing Creme
I used the last two when I straighten just until I can find a better heat protectant. I have tried using coco betaine. It was in a sulfate-free shampoo that I used to use and it would never get rid of buildup. That shampoo only seemed to cause it. Maybe it was just the shampoo in general. My hair does seem a little better after clarifying yesterday but I just know it still has buildup. It still is very flat at the scalp area.
