Greasy hair? No worries!
Does your hair tend to get greasy quickly? Even if you wash it every day, grease can still build up around the roots and make your hair look flat and listless. So what can you do to beat the oil and grease? Here are some top tips for dealing with greasy hair.
How to deal with greasy hair
Believe it or not, over-washing can actually exacerbate the problem of greasy hair. It's best to try to limit washing to every other day.
If you have greasy hair, dry shampoo can be a girl's best friend. It usually comes in the form of an aerosol that sprays white mist over your head. You leave it for a minute or two, rub it in thoroughly (as if you are using a regular shampoo) and then comb through. As well as mopping up any excess oils and grease, dry shampoo can give your hair great body and texture.
Talcum powder can have the same effect, but it's best for blondes as it can leave a grey tint on darker hairs.
It's important not to weight your hair down with more products than you need. Those with greasy hair should avoid applying conditioner to the roots - apply to the mid lengths and tips only.
There are also lots of shampoos and conditioners formulated specifically for greasy hair - Herbal Essences, Pantene and Dove are just some of the brands who offer these ranges. It's well worth switching from your regular shampoo because these products have been designed to keep normally greasy hair looking fresher for longer.
One of the main causes of greasy hair is from touching it with your hands. This is why the fringe and front sections of your hair tend to get greasier faster than other areas of your hair. Try to avoid touching your hair with your hands, and pin it back if necessary.
