Yeah I have the same issues with a lot of the sealing oils. My problem is my hair hates clarifying, even when it's covered in build up. Yeah, it's cleaner and responding to products, but I have the worst fuzzy halo that takes forever to moisturize away. It's a lot easier for me if I stick with products that don't have any major build up and never clarify. I don't get that instant gratification, but the results after a bit of time are consistent.
