This has been happening off and on for quite a few months now. I'll wash my hair but the hair at the crown just doesn't wash well. It feels sticky and looks greasy even though it isn't. I've tried different shampoo's and rinse my hair really well. Not sure what to do now, my hair dresser said maybe I need a better quality shampoo so I bought some, sometimes it works but usually it doesn't. Anyone have any ideas?

Perhaps you need a clarifying shampoo or to do a clarifying rinse?
A clarifying rinse is probably cheapest and I find it leaves my hair so soft. What you do is buy a bottle of apple cider vinegar(it's $1-$2), find an empty spray bottle(or buy one from Wal-Mart or the drugstore). Fill the spray bottle up with apple cider vinegar and water, half and half, but don't fill up the whole bottle, maybe 2/3 of the bottle though.
Get in the shower, wet your hair and scalp and spray the apple cider vinegar and water into your scalp and roots. Once you've sprayed it all(you don't have to), massage in the scalp and your roots for 1-2 minutes then rinse.
You can of course do this after shampooing if you find that your shampoo leaves residue.
You can repeat if you need to. After that, wash your hair and condition as usual.
Do this once every 2 weeks or once a month, but not too often.
For a clarifying shampoo, you can find them anywhere, for virtually any price. You can get a $1.00 clarifying shampoo from V05 or Suave or a higher end one from Joico or Redken. You would use these once a week at max, no more.
Tip: when you condition, don't put conditioner on your scalp or roots. The point of conditioner is to moisturize the hair and the hair that needs it the most is the oldest(ends), not the new hair(on your scalp).2
