Hair is one of the most attractive accessories that you own to enhance your personality. Hair works like magic. The right hair length, texture, and style can completely change the way you look. It adds on to your beauty in a way that with perfect hair, you don’t even need a hint of make-up. Your hair does that job for you by making you look 10x times more attractive.
But Unfortunately, all of us are not blessed with those perfect locks. And sometimes managing your hair can be a pretty difficult task especially when they are greasy and oily. Hair gets greasy when there is an overabundance of sebum and oil on your scalp. Your oil glands produce oil to remove the dryness and roughness of your hair. However, they can sometimes overproduce the sebum which leads to this problem.
That being said, you don’t need to get panicked and worried about it. There are some easy and affordable ways in which you can combat your oily and greasy scalp.
This is the number 1 thing that people get wrong when it comes to taking care of their hair. Oily hair needs to be washed more often than normal hair to remove the excess oil that gets collected on your scalp. However, washing them too often can also backfire. You need to understand that your oil glands secrete oil for hair protection only. If you shampoo too much, your hair will get dry and your oil glands will start overworking and producing more and more oil. So, it is wiser to limit your hair shampoo routine to just 1-3 times in a week depending upon your hair needs and schedule.
Powder Your Roots
Yes, you heard it right. You can powder the roots of your hair to soak up the excess oil in them. You can use baby powder to do that or you can also apply some compact powder with a brush. Use a big fluffy brush to spread the powder evenly and you are good to go. This method can come in handy on those days when you wake up with bad hair and you are running out of time to go somewhere.
After shampooing your hair, make it a habit to rinse them twice. Sometimes, only one rinse is not enough to pull out all the shampoo from your scalp. It can create a product build up on your natural hair layer and can damage your hair in a lot of different ways including a greasy scalp.
Avoid Excessive Hair Products
Hair Serum, Setting Spray, Conditioners, Hair Oil, Dry Shampoo, Hair Wax, Heat Protectant Spray, etc., the list is endless. Though all these hair products do give you great results but keeping their use in check is important. Excess to anything is bad. And that applies to your hair as well.
Straightening irons, Curlers, blow dryers, they all can give a smooth sleek finish to your hair strands but they also make your hair look greasy faster. Learn to embrace the natural texture of your hair. Let your hair flow freely in all its grace and beauty.
Oily hair can be a nuisance if not managed properly. But with these tips and techniques, you now know how to take the best care for your hair to avoid this problem. It is also important to note that oil production from your glands also changes from time to time. It generally goes down with time. So, be patient and let your hair do their magic.
