2c wavy, oily, and thick hair help!

I desperately need advice on my hair! I have long, very frizzy and thick hair. I also struggle with oily roots and somewhat dry ends, ever since I have been using sulfate-free products. I currently use the Shea Moisture Coconut and Hisbiscus shampoo, however, my hair remains oily and itchy the next day. I have tried clarifying my hair and then two weeks later, its back to the same regime. If anyone has tips, please do leave them below, I am trying to bring my hair back to life without damaging it and cleaning it with sulfates. 

RE: 2c wavy, oily, and thick hair help!

I would recommend trying a scalp scrub and a cleansing conditioner as well for your concerns! The deep conditioning should help with the dry ends!

RE: 2c wavy, oily, and thick hair help!

It’s a TON of trial and error and can be SUPER overwhelming because there’s soooo many products. A few brand recommendations though: Shea moisture, Miss Jessie’s, mixed chicks, and kinky curl! There all target/drug store brands but I have tried EVERY brand you could ever possible imagine. And these have worked best for me! AVEDA also has some amazing curl enhancing products that can encourage your curls to curl more if that’s the look your going for. MY HOLY GRAIL products have been: Jelly Soft curls by miss Jessie’s, Mixed chicks leave-in conditioner, Shea moisture coconut and hibiscus curl and style milk, Shea moisture Coconut and Hibiscus curl enhancing smoothie, and any Shea Moisture “repair and restore” products! They also make the BEST hair mask I’ve ever used. My BEST Tips: Do NOT use towels to dry your hair, get a diffuser or air dry, RAKE your leave-in and SCRUNCH your styling products, use a light gel, invest in a WET brush comb or Pic instead of a normal brush, DEEP CONDITION, put product in while your hair is SOAKING wet, and make sure you clean your scalp to keep from product buildup! Also with Fine curls make sure you use lighter products to keep your curls from falling out! Also STOP using Deavacurl- they are facing TONS of lawsuits and scandal right now make sure you read about it BEFORE using products.
