How do you keep your scalp and hair clean?
I have thick hair and I always end up having residue on my scalp after I wash my hair. I think my hair is too thick for the water/shampoo to rinse my scalp thoroughly.

I do a shampoo message -
I'll part my hair and put the shampoo directly on my scalp - message it into my scalp, let it set for a moment, then rinse it out.
If your getting like a greasy / oily type of residue - that's actually what good shampoo is suppose to do. It's moisturizing your hair, and when you blow dry a lot of the residue will typically evaporate off, leaving just enough for a moist silky texture.
I have thick / dense hair and parting helps a lot with getting a good scrub on the scalp and making some room for excess residue to slide off in the rinsing process.
If anything - I'd try filling up a sink with water and sticking your head all the way in; the shampoo will float right off your scalp and into the water - then rinse with running water to get off the residue at the surface.
But if it's moisturizing residue - I recommend you keep that on your hair :) it seems to make my hair grow and develop healthier0
