It sounds to me like the transition period, not necessarily build-up. Either way, I'd follow Morgan's advice above and do a brown sugar scrub. The baking soda/ACV thing isn't really for scalp issues.

Welcome :) I'm not sure about the Garnier, but the ingredients list I saw for Aussie does have a water-soluble silicone so it should be ok. Remember that these end in -cone, -conal, and -xane.

You'd be surprised what products that didn't work pre-CG ended up working after. There were a lot that ended up working better than my so-called HGs.

This is what I was going to suggest as well. My guess is she is drying her scalp out with sulfates which creates flakes. Dry scalp is more common than, and often mistaken for, dandruff. She can...

The best time to brush is in the shower when it is coated in conditioner. This leads to less breakage and...
