How can I remove build up?!

(3c-4a type curls) I noticed that I have accumulated quite a lot of build up on my scalp due to the all the deep conditioning that I do. I've heard of using baking soda as a scrub, but I usually steer away from hair scrubs; as the little grains get stuck in my thick hair. I would rather not go through more hours of picking out the grains I find. But is there anything else? Also, how would I avoid build up on the scalp in the future? -Thanks for the help!

I forgot to mention that I use the Shea Moisture line restorative conditioner and have noticed that it leaves a strange smell to my hair when dried. Has anyone else had that problem?
HI, PERSON! I suggest you use apple cider vinegar (acv) and aloe juice as a clarifying shampoo. Apple cider vinegar is such a GREAT natural shampoo! It has a very low pH which closes your hair cuticles and makes your hair silky and smooth! It's good with oily hair and scalp, itchy scalp and dandruff. I know people will normally just give up and use a sulfate shampoo but you actually don't have to. As for aloe vera juice, it also has a very low pH! It's anti-bacterial, squeaky-cleans your hair and creates a very rejuvenating and cooling sensation on your scalp! This diy shampoo is like a SHAMPOO-GOD!!! It will strip the oil/grease from your hair leaving it smooth, silky, and soft! OOOMMMGGG!!!! I totally forgot about bentonite clay! I cant list all the awesome things about this clay so i'll clip a video and search this up: bentonite clay on natural hair. It's awesome! Just in case you don't like shopping online too much (which is what you'll have to do for the bentonite clay), go with the diy shampoo (unless live next door to a volcano!; you'll get the joke later!Enjoy!- Rahmat The Hair Obsessed 12 Year OldHOLD UP, QUICK TIP: keep the aloe vera juice and the apple cider vinegar in the fridge; the coldness adds to the cool minty feel on your scalp!HOLD UP, ANOTHER TIP: if you cant decide what to use just mix them ALL together!ANOTHER TIP: just kidding!
