GREASY?!?!?

Don't know what to do. I'm mixed, so my hair is naturally very dry. I use a lot of conditioner. I find the more I use, the softer it feels and the more it hangs down the way I like it.. But people sometimes say that it feels greasy when they tousle it. I want touchable hair, but I still want to keep the greatness of the conditioner!! What to do? Could this be related to the fact that I use less leave in then rinse out conditioner?

Hair Type: 3B and/or 3C depending.
No-poo
Conditioner: Suave Naturals (Coconut and Tangerine)
Products:Lustrasilk Shea Butter Mango Plus
Too bad HEHH has a cone-it gives great slip.
Sometimes use Honey, Olive oil and condish as a DT
Need a cg gel (can't wait till I get to Sally's!)
so i did a little more research ( just use the search box for greasy hair and you get a bunch of hits) and the mostly people had greasy hair from too much oils/shea butter and the like. or it could be OC. It seemed to have built up on their hair. Do you shampoo at all? maybe you need a shampoo. oh just got an idea. if you feel your hair with no condish, stylers, ect, does it feel greasy then?

hope this helps!

Your hair may not be absorbing all of the conditioner you're leaving in/on it. My hair is low porosity. I use minute amounts of some of the heavier products. I know it takes longer for my hair to absorb the oils/butters then with lighter products. I do sit under a hard hat bonnet dryer for about 15 minutes on low. Let my hair air dry for about an hour. I can still feel a little of the heavier products on my hair when I SOTC, but it's gone in another hour or so. If it wasn't, I'd think I used too much or it wasn't a product for my hair.

Well, I only started shampooing my scalp once I started thinking my hair was greasy. So I did, and it helped. But I think the problem might be my conditioner. Thanks guys!!
