Care for Oily Hair

Care for Oily HairCare for oily hair is similar to dry hair: massage the scalp during shampooing to exfoliate, then work the shampoo through from root to tip to cleanse properly. Use shampoos for oily hair, containing amino acids and natural cleansing agents such as lemon juice. Try washing hair every other day or twice a week rather than daily to see if it reduces oiliness. (For fine hair that is oily, washing on a daily basis is recommended). Do not wash your hair everyday. If your hair is clean your glands will secrete more oil. Use a cleaning shampoo to wash your hair and to scrub off the oil build up. Use a mild shampoo and scrub lightly. According to some researches, babes with bangs tend to touch their tresses a lot, and that excites oil glands, so cut back on the mane handling, says Roy Teeluck of NYC’s Julien Farel Salon. To avoid greasy look instantly you can try sprinkle baby powder on your brush and comb through hair focusing on the roots. If you have dark hair, you can try spraying the roots and your part with hair spray then rubbing hair with a towel. The alcohol in the spray will absorb oils. An occasional lemon juice rinse after shampooing will also help remove excess oil. Mix the juice of one lemon and 1 cup of lukewarm water, and pour over your hair. After 10 minutes, rinse with cool water.
Always remember, natural oils are beneficial, so don’t entirely strip them for the sake of cleaner-looking hair. Try to avoid oil in your daily food intake. And do eat more vegetables. You could visit your doctor but only after you check and consider your diet, drugs, alcohol, and your fatty food intake. Let’s face it we see what McDonalds can do to your heart in a month, can you image your hair. You would be dripping everywhere. Chemically treating the hair can also contribute to oily hair. If possible, avoid subjecting your hair to such treatment and just use gentle styling products instead. In styling this type of hair, “Because oil blocks the follicles, oily hair is usually fine hair,” says salon owner Johnny Lavoy. Avoid silicone, heavy pomades, and creams and opt for an airy mousse, applying it at the roots to add fullness.
