Is this buildup?
I have gotten frustrated with trying to keep frizz down, so I have flat ironed my hair twice in the last week. Anyway for a long time now, I have this white stuff on the top of my scalp that isn't really dandruff, but it's itchy and maybe the consistency of lotion and gets under my fingernails when I scratch (eww I know). Anyway when I wasn't straightening, I didn't notice it and since I have straightened it is back. I can't pinpoint exactly what products have changed as I keep sooo many shampoos/conditioners and interchange them. But the one thing I know I WASN'T using when not straightening is the Pureology Fortifying Heat Spray. I am assuming it is something in it causing this. (When I washed my hair today with Devacurl No-Poo, it didn't even touch the stuff and I had to use Pert to get it out) Anyway I would love to try to figure out what is causing the buildup or reaction, but don't know where to start. I can't find an ingredient list online, but it has PEG-14 Dimethicone and PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil at the top of the list and I am thinking possibly one of these, but I thought they were water soluble and the No-Poo should have removed them??? Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.
