How do I stop my hair from being too greasy?
My hair is very dry and frizzy. I style my hair with cantu coconut curling cream and tresseme botanique conditioner. Every time I style my hair, I have to get it wet every morning, and I'm not able to let it go from a ponytail or bun and have it the way I want. I do put a lot of product in my hair, and after drying some parts are perfectly fine and others are sill so dry,frizzy, and don't curly. Since it always happens, I always put my hair in a high or low bun. After one day, I let my hair go, and it's disgusting and greasy, but again, parts are still dry.
