Default Overmoisturized Versus Build Up

Is there a difference?

How do you tell the difference?

How do I know if my hair is overmoisturized?

How do I know if my hair has build up?

What should I do if my hair is overmoisturized?

Overconditioned hair will generally be very soft but lifeless and limp. Curls will be waves, waves will be almost straight.

I fix overconditioned hair with a protein treatment (I use aloe, it's the only thing my hair tolerates).

Buildup is often described as feeling dirty, greasy, waxy, flaky, stiff.

remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!
My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.

For me there isn't a difference, over-conditioned and product build-up looks the same in my hair. Wet frizzy hair that is too soft, limp, greasy and hard to style. And I solve it the same way, too - cleanse and use a pt. But like I said, that's just my hair.
