Many of us struggle with having to wash our hair daily due to excess oil, but that is not the problem. The problem may be the things that you do that are making your hair greasy. As such, here are things to stop doing that could be the cause of your greasy hair.
Touching your hair too often
Like constantly touching your face, fiddling with your hair transfers oils from your fingertips to your strands. So, allow your hair be!
You wash it to cleanse the grease, but no, it doesn’t help. Unfortunately, daily shampooing can strip your scalp of its natural oils so it produces more in a bid to replace them. Try cutting back on washing your hair to every other day at least, or two to three times a week.
You may be applying a conditioner that’s too heavy for your hair type, which can weigh it down. Hence, be conscious when using it. Additionally, avoid placing your conditioner all over your hair, focus on the ends to avoid causing oily roots.
Brushing your hair too much can stimulate oil production, which at first looks glossy, but later looks greasy. Again, stick to detangling the lengths and ends if you’ve got an obsessive hair brushing habit.
Your hairbrush can harbour all sorts of specks of dirt. A dirty brush will transfer this dirt onto the hair, making it feel dirty, so make sure yours is cleaned properly on a regular basis.
Applying the wrong products
You may be choosing styling products that aren’t compatible with your hair. Look for lightweight formulas and avoid ones that guarantee shine and moisture which would be better suited to dry or dull hair types.
