Oily hair can be a major drag.
Not only is it time consuming to wash your hair every single day, but it also can’t be great for hair to be in contact with cleaning agents every morning or evening?
But there are ways to degrease your barnet, thanks to Stylecaster for these handy tips!
Translucent powder will de-slick you on the go.
How many times has this happened to you: you’re out and about, when suddenly you catch a glimpse of yourself in a mirror and realize your hair is a giant greaseball. Though you may not have a can of dry shampoo with you, you can address minor-level oil by dusting a little bit of translucent setting powder along your part and into your roots. It soaks up oil just as well as dry shampoo does, and because it’s so fine, you won’t end up with any weird white residue left behind. Plus, you never have to worry about carrying a can of dry shampoo with you—one fewer products in our bag is always a good thing.
Be smart with your dry shampoo.
We hate to say it, but overusing dry shampoo could actually be causing your extra-greasy hair. It’s really easy for this product to soak up too much oil, which dries out your scalp, which causes it to produce even more oil—thus causing the exact problem you set out to fix. It’s time to stop the madness, and the easiest way to do this is by dry shampooing smarter. Instead of blasting your scalp, spray a little dry shampoo on your fingers and run them through your hair, focusing mainly on the roots—not your scalp. You can also spray a little dry shampoo onto a paddle brush and comb it through your hair to refresh your lovely locks without drying them out. One of our faves is La Biosthetique Shampooing Lipokerine A — Shampoo for Oily Scalp which is a mild yet intensive cleansing makes the scalp become cleaner and clearer. It soothes and regulates the sebum production to prevent your hair from becoming greasy again too quickly.
Ditching your straightener might be the best thing you ever do for oily hair: the straighter your hair is, the more scalp-oil it comes into contact with. Some curl at the root lifts your hair up where it belongs, making it harder to get greasy. We find that curls created with rollers rather than hot tools work best on grease-prone hair—just make sure you hit your waves with a blast of hard-hold hairspray to get them to stay.
