Question Beauty/body products' effect on hair

When beginning cg (or as cg as I am), I continued with the usual lotions and face creams (baby lotion for body, neutrogena hand creme, and oil of olay face cream). One day i began to worry about what my hand lotion was doing to my hair. I switched over from my usual products over to KBB body scrub to wash, KBB body butter (actually its the hair butter but it works to same) and the OCM to wash my face of sunflower and flax seed. I've noticed that the rough little patches on my arms are gone and the hair on my hairline is no longer that lighter shade of brown it always was. And the hair is growing! I just figured I had a wispy hairline, now i find out it was my products stunting my poor hair!!!

Should I have been low pooing or pooing every so often if I was using my regular old beauty products?? (to get rid of any cones or non-water soluble stuff??)

Mix of 3s, thick, coarse, medium porosity

Current hair styling technique: rake with a scrunch at the end. (works with my coarse hair)

pw: curls

Known HGs: KCCC, homemade fsg, honey
