    I usually use a drop of teatree oil mixed with a tablespoon of Baking Soda and some water in a squirt bottle.
    Wet my hair, then massage the mixture into my scalp and down my hair before rinsing and conditioning.
    Works really well, but I think it might become drying if used too frequently...

    I would follow the baking soda mixture with a ACV rinse to get the pH back down. It will help with the dry feeling too. 1TBS ACV to 1C water. Condition as normal.

    If I want to get rid of a bit of build up without washing my hair, I'd just massage my scalp like crazy with conditioner in it.
    Hair type: Mostly 3C, medium porosity to high porosity depending on the day, dense, fluffy, dry, tangly!
