It’s a common hair woe affecting one in four women.
Yet with so many brilliant products on the market, greasy hair should really be a thing of the past.
Oily hair is caused by a common imbalance of the sebaceous glands, which secrete sebum.
Sebum is a natural oily substance that lubricates the scalp and protects against pollution.
In moderation that’s all well and good but when there’s too much of it, it becomes a problem.
To blitz grease, start by washing with a clarifying shampoo every day.
L’Oréal Nutri-Gloss Light Shampoo should perk up dull hair and best of all its lighter formula promises to leave your hair free from residue.
Next apply conditioner only from halfway down your hair to the ends - avoid the roots, where you don’t need any extra moisture.
Choose a super-light product, such as Seaweed Conditioner For Oily Hair by Nature Knows Best.
Once a week, try a scalp scrub to remove any build-up and dead skin that might be causing your roots to look oily. Korres Green Silt And Corallina Oligoelements Hair And Scalp Scrub is a good option.
If your hair starts to feel oily throughout the day, flip your head over and spritz a little dry shampoo on your roots.
The powder in the spray will absorb some of the oil, and it will give you volume so your hair won’t look limp.
Once you’ve got your hair looking the way you want it, give it a once over with some Elnett. The worst thing you can do with greasy hair is keep touching it, so try to leave your locks alone. © Cover Media
