Daily Use Shampoo
For daily use you should find shampoos that don’t contain strong detergents such as sodium laureth sulfate. Harsher detergents don’t get rid of oil faster but only dry your scalp and increase the itchiness thereby triggering more production of oil
Dry Hair with Oily Scalp
If your hair is naturally frizzy and dry but your scalp is oily, you need to cleanse the scalp using clarifying shampoo. You may still continue applying mild conditioner to hair but only apply the shampoo from the ends of the hair to the middle avoiding the scalp.
If you have used a greasy or oily product my mistake or have experienced a sudden change in your hair, you should try using clarifying shampoos. However, if this does not work, you might have to use a strong detergent containing SLS to get rid of the oil. Once this is done, condition the hair back to normal and continue using your regular shampoo.
What Shampoo Should You Choose?
You should look for shampoos or clarifying shampoos containing any of the ingredients below:
- Tea Tree Oil
- Rosemary Oil
- Jojoba Oil
- Citrus/Citric Acid
- Egg Whites
Once you finish washing and conditioning your hair, you are free to apply hair care products, but only those formulated for your hair and in small quantities. The hair care products help to reduce the transfer of oil from your scalp to your hair. This keeps your hair free of excess oil and makes it easier to style it.
You need to change your hair style if it is persistently oily. Sleek back or flat pixie styles are not always the best option for those with oily hair. When sebum glands produce more oil than normal the two style choices absorb and spread the oil faster and it becomes greasier. To prevent the spread, you should add more texture, body, and volume or make the hair spikier.
To achieve a spiky look, you should use a small amount of non-greasy hair wax on the ends for definition and control as opposed to liquid lotions. You should also consider using dry shampoo then allow it to absorb the excess oil. Give your scalp some room to breathe.
Oily hair can be the result of several different factors. However, it is always a problem to deal with especially if you don’t know the best approach to take.
