Well most people find the olive oil hard to get out without a detergent shampoo or conditioner, the eggs themselves would have been good. And yeah, experiment with ACV or tea rinses, start weak. has a lot of posts about WO, egg washes and acidic rinses, they really like their tea rinses over there. Though they aren't so crazy about the bs and acv combo. And acidic rinses make my roots feel a lot less waxy after washing.

And whenever I get close to WO, my hair takes forever to dry and looks and feels like 3 day hair (I usually do cornstarch on day 3), so it seems like its working for you. Also, if whole egg washes don't work, try just yokes or whites, I forget which one tends to be more drying, I know they have different properties. Also, using a blender was a horrible idea I had the last time I tried using a whole egg diluted with some water, it didn't "wash" at all and felt like I'd done water only. But maybe start with one egg diluted a bit with water and focus on your roots, you don't want to over wash it, and I'm not sure you want to do more than WO too often if that's working for you, you don't want to strip your hair.

My first suggestion would be to wash using boiled water. If you have hard water you might be surprised at the difference it makes. If not, it doesn't hurt to try :)

My second suggestion would be to stop using your hair pomade. WO probably isn't washing all of that stuff out of your hair, and that might be what is causing white specks.

Lastly, ACV rinses, or something similar such as tea or lemon juice, will probably help cut down on the waxy-ness.

If you are using baking soda without ACV then your hair is getting stuck with a high pH. ACV is an acid, baking soda is a base. Your hair and scalp like to be pretty even at a 7 or so. Your itchy scalp probably has to do with the leftover baking soda and the uneven pH.
