It definitely could be that you're using too much conditioner. It could also be that one of the products doesn't agree with your hair.
Have you determined your hair properties (texture, porosity, etc) yet? These can have a huge impact on what products will work for you.
Also, make sure that you're massaging your scalp really well when you co-wash. I also found that continuing to massage my scalp as I'm rinsing the co-wash out helps keep things feeling non-gunky.
You might also want to try rotating in a low-poo (sulfate-free shampoo). There are a lot of people who cannot co-wash exclusively, so they use low-poo occasionally or regularly.
