It seems like someone applied oil on you hair? Is’t fat and unattractive? Everyone encountered a “bad hair day”. But what should we do when our hair, regardless to our perseverance, seems always dirty and untidy?
You must not blame hygiene habits, because the problem is probably hereditary. Fight it using the right shampoo – rinse and wash your hair twice – and apply a homemade rinsing solution to stop remove the grease.
Here are some tips that will help you get rid of oily hair problem:
Read the label of the shampoo bottle!
Choose a shampoo that has a high content of sodium laurel sulfate and low in any type of fabric, such as lanolin. You need a clarifying shampoo which works by removing oil from the hair and scalp.
Even if you have dandruff, you might get good results with a dandruff shampoo containing tar: the formula this shampoos use tends to dry out even the most oily hair types.
Make an every day “double”!
It might seem obvious that you have to shampoo every day – maybe even twice a day if the weather is hot and humid. But besides this, you should shampoo twice every time you wash your hair. Apply the shampoo on your hair, let it work for several minutes then rinse thoroughly and repeat the process.
Don’t use fabric softener! It does nothing else than putting back the oils you struggled to remove.
Change the rinsing cycle!
Rinsing your hair with water is fine, but you’ll get even better results if you use a concentrated rosemary tea. Highly aromatic and pleasant, this tea contains essential oils that control the overproduction of scalp oils. To prepare the solution, pour a cup of boiling water over two tablespoons of dried rosemary. Strain the liquid, let it cool and then pour the mixture into an empty plastic bottle. Keep the bottle in the bathroom and apply it on your hair on the last rinse.
Another “cure” for oily hair is the lime solution. Mix the juice squeezed from two lemons with two cups of distilled water and pour the mixture into an empty shampoo bottle. After washing and rinsing your hair, dry it and apply the solution to the scalp. Leave on for five minutes, allowing the lemon juice acid to act, then rinse with cold water.
Vinegar, which is acidic, can also clean your hair. Mix 1 cup of vinegar with 1 cup of water then apply the solution on your hair on the last rinse.
