Simple greasy hair remedies for men

Oil is produced in the hair to protect it and give it that 'healthy shine'. However, sometimes your hair does its job too well and produces oily, greasy hair. Greasy hair remedies for men aren't actually a treatment for greasy hair, rather an alteration of hair styling or washing to help manage your hair's over production of oils.

Here are the top easy greasy hair remedies for men:

Shampoo often

You wouldn't have to worry about your hair drying out; if you have oily or greasy hair shampooing everyday is probably the best idea to manage your hair.

Avoid conditioner

Conditioner adds more moisture and oils in a coat, which is something your greasy hair doesn't need. If you have to use conditioner only use it on the tips of your hair which may dry out.


Although this step sounds simple, if you don't rinse your hair properly, soap residue will collect dirt and oil, making your hair greasier than it should me. Rinse your hair thoroughly after shampooing to ensure no excess soap is left.

Lemon juice

Lemon juice is another method to help control shampoo build up and prevent greasy hair. Mix the juice of one lemon into one cup of water and rinse through your hair to keep the grease away.

Alcohol and beer

If you're feeling particularly manly and adventurous, rinse your hair with beer or alcohol, which have a drying effect. You may want to consider shampooing your hair afterwards, unless you want to spend the rest of the day stinking like a brewery.
