Default no to little head

My last 3 brew attmepts have revealed a batch with little to no head and it seems as if it taste more carbonated than before. Please help with any suggestions.

Fermenation time for the brews was between 7-12 days with same outcome.

Many factors can contribute to this. Soap is a main one. How are you washing your bottles as well as the glasses that you pour into?

How long did you bottle condition before opening one? How did you prime? (what volume wort? What temp? How much priming sugar? And did you use corn sugar, DME, other?)

I found with my first batch I think I started to get a head that somewhat stayed was around the 3 week mark.

Yep, if brewingcop cracked the first one after a week in the bottle it will be flat and green.
