Epic Formula to Prevent Oily Hair

A woman loves to visit salon to get their hair treated and try different hair products such as hair masks, serum, treatments and so on… Yes your hair will be softer but did you know that these products can make your hair stringy and flat and at the same time your scalp gets oily? Though oil in your hair protects your hair from breaking, hair products have ingredients like silicone and this is greasy yikes! Don’t fret! Today I will give you some tips on how to prevent oily hair.

  1. Shampoo and condition your hair the proper way– Always remember shampoo goes to your roots while conditioner goes to the end of your strands.
  2. Rinse thoroughly! So self explanatory =)
  3. Change your shampoo– You may not know but maybe you’re already using a wrong shampoo try to look for a mild shampoo (one with salicylic acid and ketokonazole) plus do not over-wash, it only increases oil production.
  4. Do not over-brush your hair– If you do, you only drag oil and distribute it to your hair.
  5. Use dry-shampoo– it eliminates grease as well as it adds volume. Dry shampoo contains Vitamin E that strengthens your hair.


5 Great Home Remedies For Oily Hair Ideas

  1. Beer– Yes! You read it right it has a drying effect and leaves your hair shiny
  2. Cider Vinegar – Soak your hair with ¼ cup of Cider Vinegar plus water then wash with warm water
  3. Tea– it contains an astringent that cuts the oil.
  4. Lemon juice– Mix it with 1 cup of water, rinse your hair with it then rinse with warm water.
  5. Healthy diet– You are what you eat! Make sure that you pick foods that are rich in Omega 3, Vitamin A and Biotin (ex. Leafy Greens, Walnut, Eggs and Salmon etc.)

NOTE: Dry, itchy scalp, dandruff? This only means that you lack Vitamin A! Start eating healthy foods and it will definitely perk up the state of your hair. Figure out what’s best for you and have fun!

    I wash my hair once every week or I might wash mid-week just with a conditioner for co-washing. It just depends on how dirty my hair is. I often get build ups from products etc. I haven’t experience any problems with my hair being too oily.

    I wasn’t aware that beer can help with oily hair. I don’t really have to deal with it since I wash my hair on a daily basis. I also make sure that I use the products that suits the kind of hair that I have.

      Yes 🙂 There’s a lot of benefits, it’s amazing! Absolutely! It’s important to check and pick the right products. Thanks for stopping by Elizabeth

    I don’t have oily hair but my husband is the one who does. I will make him read this article so he can choose which one he’d want to try. I am guessing it would be beer. I hope he puts it in his hair and not drink it while in the shower. LOL.

    I also have oily hair, found remedy by suing revlon shampoo esp for oily hair (green cap) or watson botanical shampoo green also labeled for oily hair. Both can be found at watsons so it is very accessible for everyone. Quick remedy though is to put baby powder at the scalp Thanks for the advice ayesha. ❤️
