Every since I was baby I had curly hair but for someone reason disappeared and turned straight all of a sudden my hair started curl. Recently my hair is curling maybe because I’m growing out my hair I’m not sure🤷🏽‍♂️. I have also changed my head soap to argan oil. My problem is that I only have ONE goldilock stand ONLY one which fluctuates going away and reappearing time to time. I don’t have a routine for doing my hair . I don’t have any type of liquids or gel. I also air dry my hair. Dandruff and frizz are another problem as well. If anyone could give me a guide or steps do having goldilock then please do so🙏. At this point I’m thinking of just getting a perm

    Welcome!  First thing to do is stop washing your hair with soap.  Soap is for your body - shampoo is for your hair!  Then follow that up with a conditioner.  Apply it, make sure it's distributed well, then let it sit while you finish your other shower stuff, then rinse it all off.  If you start treating your hair a little nice, you might start seeing more curls!

    @Kalascrafts16 Is this your first time shampooing with a sulfate free shampoo? If so, I'm thinking that the greasiness is either your scalp adjusting to the mild cleanser or it's the technique you're using to wash  your hair. 

    Sulfates are very harsh and can dry out your scalp, so your scalp overproduces oils to keep your hair moisturized. Sulfate free shampoos are obviously much more mild and don't strip your hair of the natural oils that keep your hair moisturized. So, you've got overproduction of oils right now because your scalp is so used to having to do that. Give it a couple more washes to calm down and go from there. Also, since sulfates are so harsh, most aren't used to having to really get in their scalp and massage to break up the oils, dirt, and products that accumulate on our scalp. When using a sulfate free shampoo, make sure to really massage your scalp with the tips of your fingers to break everything up. Some people find that using a shampoo brush also helps with this. Good luck!

    100% okay to deep condition! 

    I wonder if your hair is acting that way because you used less than normal super cream.  The super cream helps reduce that dry frizzy look.
