I've just discovered that my hair seems to love oil, even though I'm a wavy. I've been using quite a lot lately and I'm not having build-up problems yet. I CO wash only. Every now & then I do an ACV rinse or a lemon juice rinse, and that seems to work for me.
FYI, I'm using jojoba oil in my hair every day, I'm using the SheaMoisture shea butter leave-in CO most days (very rich stuff), and I do a DT every week or two that has avocado, coconut milk, and olive oil in it. Could be that my hair is just fried, and I've only been CG for a few months, but it seems to keep drinking up whatever I feed it. Regular conditioners don't seem to do much for my hair, and I'm finally getting some relief from my perpetual crown & surface frizz.
Have you tried oils & experienced buildup?
