Dealing with oily hair is the same as oily skin which can sometimes be as a result of the habits you keep. The type of hair-type and texture of course plays a vital role on how oily hair strands will appear. As such, many ladies are regularly looking for ways to make their hair look less oily.
Here are some of the ways you can deal with it;
Avoid Straightening Hair:
The more closely your hair lies on your head, the more oil it comes in contact with. Curled hair (whether natural or not) gives a little more volume at the roots which keeps hair from becoming too oily quickly.
Use Baby/Or Mild Powder:
This method works right if only you can adapt it and not see it to be the old-fashioned route. Use baby powder or any other mild powder instead of dry shampoo by sprinkling some on the roots and rub it in. If you have dark hair and the baby powder causes too much of a white cast, just brush some bronzer into your roots instead or mix the baby powder with cocoa. [ Bronzer is a cosmetic liquid or powder applied to the skin to give it colour or shine, typically to give the appearance of a suntan- dictionary].
Try Not To Touch Your Hair Regularly:
Most ladies like playing with their hair thereby causing the hair to be touched regularly. Knowing that your fingertips and face both produce oil that can easily be transferred to your hair. Also avoid using styles that allow too much hair to touch your face.
Avoid Washing Hair often:
Avoid washing hair often, though this may sound totally counter intuitive. But, if the scalp is constantly being stripped off oils, the more forcefully it tries to replace those oils. This results to accumulation of oil in the hair. Instead, try washing every three-four days.
Make Use Of Dry Shampoo:
Using dry shampoo helps a lot in getting rid of oil from its roots making your hair appear clean and less oily. It will also allow for more time to spend between washes.
Do A Healthy Balance Brushing:
Allowing oil to build up on the scalp is not advisable. Not brushing hair enough keeps natural oils from being distributed, also over-brushing can stimulate oil production. The only solution is to ensure to find a healthy balance for your hair.
