If you’re washing your hair every day and still getting the slick look hours after washing you’ll be the not very proud owner of greasy hair. Greasy hair is a vicious cycle of washing to clear the grease, only for the sebaceous glands to kickstart into action to replace the missing oils.
You’re told to stop washing every day, but no one wants to see fine, greasy hair on day three of the no-wash regime. So, you keep washing.
But there are some things you can do that doesn’t involve holding back the shampoo. Just tweak your methods a little bit with these wonderful little tips from LiveAbout.
Quick Fixes for a Greasy Scalp
Whether your greasy scalp is a temporary or permanent problem in your life, you’ll be happy to know that there are a lot of products and tips that can make life with extra oil much easier. Here are some tips to help combat your oily hair battle:
Check Your Shampoo Technique
Make sure you are shampooing your hair properly, which means rinse, rinse, rinse. You should be rinsing your hair for a minimum of 30 seconds. Sometimes greasy hair is actually shampoo or conditioner that hasn’t been rinsed completely.
Use Cold Water
Rinse your hair with cool water after shampooing. Hot water can stimulate the glands that produce sebum, while cold water helps shut them down. Plus cool water helps close your cuticle and reduce damage to your hair.
Limit Use of Hair Dryer
Whenever possible, let your hair air dry naturally, or keep the heat at a minimum. The hot hair can stimulate oil production faster.
Touch your hair as little as possible. The more you touch, brush, and even style your hair, the more oil you produce and the more noticeable that grease gets throughout the day.
Don’t Forget to Clarify
Use a clarifying shampoo or treatment twice per month. Your greasy hair may be the result of product buildup or heavy conditioners. Even if you don’t use a lot of hair products, your hair may be really good at holding on to traces of oil and gunk. Use a clarifying shampoo a couple of times every month to remove all traces of oil.
