It's most important to know your hair properties. Curl pattern is least important.

Is it dandruff or dry scalp? If it's a dry scalp, I suggest try brown sugar scrubs. Mix equal amounts (or a tiny bit more brown sugar) of olive oil and brown sugar. I use about a tablespoon of each. I also like to add a few drops of rosemary oil. Some people like to add a few drops of tea tree oil.
Mix together and massage it into your scalp. I do this in the bathtub so I don't get the floor all gross. I let it sit about 10 mins in my hair and then low poo it out in a shower like normal. Some people like to cowash it out instead.
Medium texture, normal porosity, normal elasticity, very weak waves.
