Greasy hair is common, which is caused by overactive sebaceous glands that produce too much sebum. Though sebum has numerous benefits for the hair like keeping it lustrous and shiny, soft, and moisturized, too much of it can lead to greasy hair and scalp. Moreover, it is also the common cause of dandruff. It can be caused by different factors like unhealthy eating habits, heredity, medications, and improper hair care. Nonetheless, it should be treated to achieve healthy, grease-free, and dandruff-free hair. Here are some tips.
1. Stop touching your hair too often
Admittedly, touching our hair when it’s soft is tempting. However, this transfers oil and dirt from your hand to your hair, removing your strands’ healthy shine.
2. Don’t overwash
If you have greasy hair, the most common solution you could probably think of would be to wash it more often. This isn’t going to work because overwashing strips the hair of its natural oils, prompting the sebaceous glands to only produce more sebum to replace lost ones.
3. Condition your hair the right way
We all love putting conditioner on our hair because it gives it a soft finish. However, do make sure to use one that suits your hair type if you don’t want your product to weigh your hair down. And if you don’t rinse it completely, it’s going to be another cause of greasy hair. Stick to putting it at the ends of your hair to avoid oily roots.
4. No to overbrushing
Making 100 brush strokes at bedtime may be a hair care tip that’s been passed on from generation to generation in your family. Unfortunately, it might not be a totally good idea because brushing the hair stimulates the production of oil in the scalp, leading to greasy hair.
5. Keep a clean hairbrush
If you rarely clean your hairbrush because at one look it seems clean, then you have to think again. Hairbrushes are where stale styling products end up, which are transferred to your hair with every use. So, always clean your hairbrush regularly.
6. Use the right shampoo
Use shampoo that’s specifically formulated for greasy if this is your problem. CLEAR Cool Sport Menthol for Men provides an intense cooling power that keeps hair fresh all day.
