White film on hair regardless of what I use! Help

CurlyCorCurlyCor Posts: 74Registered Users Curl Neophyte
So lately (as of last week) every product combination I have been using has resulted in white film/specs on my hair once it has dried. All of these products, I have used before with no issues.

These are the combinations:
KCCC with Aussie Instant Freeze=Major noticeable white specs on my hair
CIBU Spring Roll Cream, Curls in a Bottle with AIF= White specs that are noticeable but not major
Curls in a bottle with AIF= White specs
KCCC with CIAB=Specs
CCCC with AIF

Any suggestions as to what could be causing it?
AIF was/is my go to gel and I used it a lot before with no issues. Sigh

    Have you tried clarifying? I wonder if the products are reacting to build-up in the hair.

    Hmmm good point. I have to wash my hair 2-3 times a week since my heads sweats so much and on one of those washes I use head and shoulders because it helps my SD. I use yes to carrots nourishing on the other washes. I am going to try to wash with head and shoulders tomorrow to see if that is the issue.

    I think lots of people have problems with polyquats, and buildup from polyquats, myself included. I agree regarding the clarifying. Try kinky curly come clean!

    @Therese1 and @Curls80
    Thank y'all so much! I clarified with head and shoulders and used CJ CCCC and AIF and no white specs on my hair at all. I guess it was polyquat build up. Great, another issue with my hair that I have to be careful of LOL

    Yay! I went for a long time with my hair just getting worse and worse, so finally I clarified, and it was amazing! After that, I had to retry all my styling products to see what they actually did, because the build-up had made them so ineffective. Now I make it a point to clarify every time I feel like my hair is not responding the way it should.
