Oily hair, just like an oily face, can present quite a daunting task to keep up. We understand this stress, and that’s why in this article we’ll be giving you tips on choosing the best shampoo for oily hair, to solve your greasy hair problems
The first step to properly caring for your hair and scalp is to choose a shampoo that meets your hair’s needs. Excessively greasy hair can cause bad itching and even dermatitis. It may even accommodate and feed the fungus that causes dandruff.
Tips To Use Shampoo For Oily Hair.
1. Avoid hair-nourishing products such as shampoo:
Nourishing shampoo functions as both shampoo and conditioner. It’s a 2-in-1 deal that not just cleans the hair but conditions it. It’s not really bad, but it’s just that it contains oil and some other ingredients that increase the moisture in the scalp, causing it to be too oily. Instead of using a nourishing formula shampoo, use one with detoxifying content.
2. Apply hair products properly:
Spend extra time massaging the shampoo into your scalp to break up the oil. And your scalp should be thoroughly rinsed.
But try to avoid massaging your conditioner into your scalp after shampooing. Instead, concentrate on your hair’s mid-shaft and ends. Rinse thoroughly.
3. Use pH-balanced hair products:
Oily hair shampoo should clearly state that it is pH balanced for both skin and hair. Using unbalanced shampoos will cause your scalp to produce more oil and deplete its natural oils. That double tragedy is something you don’t want to be a part of. A shampoo with a pH range of 4.5 to 5.5 is best because this is the exact pH of your hair and skin.
3 Ways To Fix Oily Hair
1. Shampoo correctly:
Washing your hair incorrectly can result in adding more oil to your scalp and, worse, damaging your hair in the process.
To wash your hair properly, gently massage a little shampoo into your roots and scalp. Use your nails sparingly and avoid causing too much friction on the hair strands. Scrubbing too hard can cause irritation and injury to your scalp and cause it to produce more oils.
Concentrate on your scalp, which contains more oil than the rest of your hair.
Instead of scrubbing the shampoo into your hair’s ends, simply allow the shampoo to flow through the ends as you rinse. And, fortunately for your wallet, you can avoid the “repeat” cleanse.
2. Increase your use of head accessories:
Head coverings such as hats, helmets, and scarves can trap heat while spreading oils. With a quick wash, you can get rid of the side effects of wearing the hat. Alternatively, you can use head accessories to extend the time between washes.
3. Clean your combs and brushes thoroughly:
With freshly washed hair, a dirty comb or brush has no place. Your brush may be clogged with styling items, oils, and other gunk, causing your hair to become dirty right after washing.
To remove the buildup, clean all your styling tools with a little shampoo or gentle soap. Similarly, after each styling, clean out all of the loose hair to keep your combs and brushes free of oil and dirt.
PS: You can also try out nature’s gifts like honey for hair masking, coconut oil for deep conditioning, and apple cider to rinse.
