1. Wash Regularly
The first thing that you should be focusing on when you are trying to curb oily hair is how often you are washing. Your sebaceous glands produce oil on your skin naturally throughout the day and if you go too long without washing your hair, your the oil build up on your hair will be more and more obvious. So shampoo and shampoo regularly to wash away the excess oil on your skin and on your hair!
2. Wash Less Often
If you wash often but you still seem to have oily hair, your issue might be something of a catch 22. That’s to say that because you wash your hair often, your sebaceous glands will produce more oil as a response to you stripping your hair of oils. Yes, washing your hair too frequently can through off the balance and cause you to produce more oil. Overwashing leads to more oil production so you may need to skip washing your hair every other time that you shower.
3. Shampoo Properly
Once you have the right balance between not shampooing enough and shampooing too much, then it’s time to make sure that you have the right shampooing technique. While washing your hair seems simple enough, there are still some things that you need to focus on! For starters, make sure that you are washing your hair at the scalp and roots. It’s important that you wash your scalp gently to prevent damaging your roots and scalp with your fingernails. Try the Essential Hydration Shampoo to help wash and nourish your hair!
