actually? there is a vicious cycle that can begin when you 'over-wash' your hair. The human body has a natural system of protections, the oils that your skin produces are meant to protect your skin, hair is merely a waste product (to be honest) but your body has a natural system of oils is produces to maintain it in good condition and over washing will only create a cycle of over production to keep replacing what is being washed away. The epidermis is the technical name for your skin and it is very a important part of your body, it is the first line of defense to protect you. Just like over showering or over bathing, every time you strip away the oils your body is producing, your skin is going to produce MORE to replace it! The simple fact is that the more you remove the natural oils your skin is producing, the more it is going to work on replacing it. Being young, the body is at peak production levels and hormone levels are high. This can be frustrating but wait until you are older & see just how much lotion you may need to keep your skin (and hair) moisturized once your body slows its productions.
Using a mild shampoo is the best way to get rid of oily hair. Many shampoos have strong detergents that can strip the scalp of moisture. You shouldn't use a moisturizing shampoo, do not scrub your hair when washing it and stop conditioning your hair.
Don't play with or touch your hair too much. Also, avoid conditioners if you can. Another alternative (although one to adjust to at first) is go more days in btwn washing your hair. The more you wash your hair the more you strip it of moisture, and the more often oily hair will need washing. If you can tolerate washing your hair every 3 days for the first few weeks, your hair will adjust accordingly.
After a recent surgery I began to lose hair. I only wash about every 4 days....in between I use two foam squirts of Tresseme waterless foaming shampoo....don't have to wash or wet hair. Just blow dry and style afterwards. Works great, but use at roots more than ends. There are other similar product on the market as well that are equally as good.
use conditioner and shampoo's specifically for people with oily hair,don't play with your hair too much, usually brushing your hair counts is suppose to prevent tangles but it still makes mine oily but you have to brush tho,and wash your hair every other day hope this helped :)
You can buy shampoo formulas especially designed for greasy hair. Any un-rinsed conditioner left on your scalp must be rinsed out. It is best to apply conditioner only at the tips or middle area of your hair to keep the chemicals away from your scalp. Remember that hair products such as pomades and hair gels have many harmful chemicals that can make your hair greasy. Avoid combing or touching your hair obsessively because the bristles or teeth of your comb and your fingertips can transfer oil to your scalp. Some hairstyle trends can cause hair greasiness. Shampooing should be done everyday to prevent oil build up. Piling wet strands at the top of your head will only contribute to making your hair more oily.
Getting rid of greasy hard is not hard. You don't have to spend too much money on overpriced hair products. Just follow these simply tips and you can regain your confidence!
Use mild shampoo. There are many shampoos that have strong detergents that can strip the scalp of moisture. Dryness can lead to an itchy scalp that can make you even more miserable. Purchase a shampoo that is specifically designed for oily hair. Look for the word "clarifying" on the bottle as these products are specifically designed to remove hairstyling product build-up such as gel, mousse, and hairspray.
Do not use a moisturizing shampoo. It will only contribute to the problem. The ingredients will weigh heavily on your hair, causing it to look oily.
Well of corse, wash your hair daily with a clarifying shampoo on use conditioner on the ends. If it is oily between washing, try dabbing face powder on the roots with a powder brush, then thoroughly brush through until the powder is no longer visible. If your hair is blonde, use baby powder.
I read recently, and have tried it on my oily hair and it works, to rinse your hair after you wash and condition it with a mixture of 4 tablespoons of cider vinegar and 12 oz. of water. You can use one of the 20 oz. bottles of water, drink some of it and add the cider vinegar, and keep it in your shower. You may want to use a larger container since it goes fast. Shake it before each use. Pour about 2-4 ounces onto the top of you hair (the amount depending on if your hair is oily all over your head or just the top and if you have bangs) and just work it in with your fingers gently. Rinse it well and it won't smell like the cider vinegar at all.
