    This is something that's becoming embarrassing!

    For about 2 weeks now, I've been experiencing a patch on the back of my head where the hair is waxy and sticky in texture. It's not in any part of my hair besides my scalp right at the back.
    It's so annoying because it LOOKS dirty even though it's not!

    I've been washing my hair daily for 5 years, and have only recently started experiencing this. There haven't really been any changes in my lifestyle (Except maybe my stress levels which may have been causing it)

    It's not the daily washing that's causing it, because I have NEVER had this before!

    It's really upsetting because I care a lot about my appearance and this is knocking my confidence,not to mention that it just feels gross!

    What can I do to get rid of it?
    I've tried different combinations of shampooing/conditioning, and I even became so desperate that I tried using washing up liquid to remove the waxiness/grease, but nothing works!

    Please help!
    I'm going to be buying a Lush Shampoo bar on Monday because I've heard some really good things about that!

    I don't want to try the vinegar thing that so many people are talking about though

    First of all it's really bad to wash your head every day
