Here's a tricky one.

So a few weeks ago I found a sticky residue that had a hair product type feel to it. I figured it was just some leftover baking soda that was getting caught up in my hair or something since I was doing bs/acv with hard water (I use shampoo now).

Skip forward a few weeks and I see it's still there. It's not on the other side of my head, just on my left side around my temple. It's basically leaving the hair feeling sticky and makes it look quite glossy.

I'm thinking it may be some kind of detangler that the hairdresser put it when I had my hair trimmed a few days before starting out. (First trip to a hair dresser in two years. figured it'd be a good idea to get rid of some dead ends) but it doesn't make sense that it's stuck in there for 3 months with me washing every other day and getting my hair wet daily. It's one of the first parts of my hair to dry out so it's not likely to be some kind of fungus that makes me look like some kind of manscaper.

Oh, and it smells like dirt or something like that mixed in with the nag champa, hard to figure out what it is exactly

I would take a photo but there's no way it'll show up but if you could see it you'd get what I mean. Any ideas on what this could be?

Cheers everyone.

It is a residue from the hard water and BS. Get a small bottle of clarifying shampoo and it should remove any residue. You can get travel size bottles, so it shouldn't be expensive. Then switch to this.http://shop.dreadlockshampoo.com/

Okay, I'll have to have a look for it next time I go to town. Also I've been using dreadlockshampoo.com's stuff since the start of January which is why I'd figured it'd be gone by now.

I wasn't really expecting to start for another month or two and I washed and rewashed multiple times the day before and the day I started. Everywhere else is totally fine and is doing awesome just that bit of residue. :P
