How to Stop Hair Getting Greasy

Do you suffer from overly greasy hair? Well you’re not alone. Hot weather, working out and touching your hair too often can all play a part in generating excess oil which can leave your hair looking dull and dirty. Try to avoid the temptation of over washing and follow these simple tips to refresh your locks and maximise the time between washes:

1. Rinse properly

Most of us are guilty of rushing through the shampoo process and not rinsing properly. Have you ever wondered why your hair tends to stay cleaner for longer after visiting the salon? Next time you visit our Simone Thomas hairdressers in Bournemouth, notice the techniques our stylists use when washing your hair. Hair stylists know the importance of thoroughly rinsing to ensure all product has been removed. This is such a simple change, but it can make a world of difference.

 

2. Don’t condition your scalp

This may seem obvious to some, but you should avoid conditioning your scalp. Your roots have natural oils and by adding conditioner, they will become even oilier and add unnecessary weight to your hair. Next time you condition, try adding conditioner from the mid-shaft to the ends only. If your hair feels dry or damaged, treat yourself to an Olaplex treatment to protect your hair between colouring.

 

3. Limit your use of hair straighteners

The closer your hair lies to your head, the more oil it it’s in contact with, making it appear greasy. If you live for super sleek hair and can’t bear the thought of saying goodbye to your hair irons, make sure you keep them clean. Sometimes hair products transfer onto the irons and when you use them again, transfer back to your hair. It’s a never-ending cycle unless you wipe your irons after each use.

4. Avoid over-washing

If you suffer from greasy hair, you may be tempted to wash it more often, so your hair feels cleaner for longer. This is a simple mistake that many people make. Washing strips oil from your scalp but if stripped too often, your scalp will produce even more oil which results in even greasier hair. Try to cut back on washing and over time you may notice a big difference.

We love to use SOLU shampoo in our salons. Its rich, light texture and mild surfactants helps purify your scalp without leaving any heavy residue. We recommend washing twice to thoroughly clear any trace of grease. Finish with the gorgeous citrus-scented MINU conditioner.

 

5. Use product to add texture

Adding dry shampoo or some texture powder to your roots can revamp greasy hair in seconds. Volumising dry shampoo will absorb excess oil from the scalp without leaving lots of product behind. You can use regular dry shampoo and texture powder to create a similar look and add some much-needed volume to lank hair.
