6 Ways to Achieve Oil-Free Hair & How to Fix It
Having greasy hair is a recurring problem. Oily hair is like oily skin. Sometimes that's just how it is. And other times it could be because of the habits we keep.
- Washing too often or with hot water ?
- Apply conditioner all over the hair including scalp ?
- Brushing hair too much ?
- Going to sleep with wet hair ?
- Using product which is not right but smells good ?
Frustrating as this might be, it’s a relief that we can actually train our hair to be less greasy. Here are our recommended 6 tips every oily-haired person should live by:
Sulphate formulated shampoo tends to wash the hair a little too effective. Choose sulphate-free shampoo as sulphate-free formula cleanse your hair without stripping too much of your natural hair oil when you wash daily.
Brush your hair adequately. Not brushing enough keeps natural oils build up on the scalp. Over-brushing, on the other hand, can stimulate oil production. With the right hair brush, you can actually remove and distribute some of that oil evenly so that your roots appear less greasy.
Choosing the right shampoo. Use purifying shampoo such as Tea Tree Charcoal Shampoo that washes away impurities, cleanses oily scalp and stops dandruff. Consider going silicone-free, since silicones can potentially trap other ingredients on the hair - including oils. This shampoo provides purifying effect to your hair right down to the roots without any build-up.
Oily hair usually means a greasy scalp with drier ends. Choose a weightless and silicone-free Refreshing Conditioner so your hair isn't weighed down by the build-up. Instead of applying conditioner all over your hair, use it just at the ends, avoid the scalp entirely, which will make your hair looking flat and greasy. Whatever you do, don’t forget to rinse your hair thoroughly.
Air dry will cause the moisture loss in hair and dampen hair will encourage the bacteria growth as soon as your hair sweat or gets oily. Blow drying your hair while brushing it can get rid of greasy roots but avoid using a hair dryer on high heat as heat encourages an increase of oil production.
It's easy to assume that frequent hair washing is the best way to zap oil. Truth is over-washing will backfire. If the oils are stripped too often, this triggers your scalp to produce more oil which results in greasier hair faster. Choosing a right shampoo will balance the moisture after your hair wash.
