Why So Greasy?
The first step to understanding how to deal with your oily concerns is to understand why you are greasy to begin with. Sometimes the problem is a temporary hormonal problem that can come with puberty, thyroid complications, pregnancy, and sometimes menopause.
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.
- Hands Off
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.
- Use Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo should be your best friend. Use dry shampoo for quick oil absorption during the day if you find yourself greasy before the day is even over, or on days that you don’t shampoo.
