8 Ways To Make Your Hair Less Greasy, Because Nobody Wants To Waste Time Worrying Over Oily Locks

Oily hair is like oily skin. Sometimes that’s just how it is. And other times it’s that way because of the habits we keep. Of course, hair-type also plays a role in how oily strands will appear. All my fine-hair ladies (and I’m sure some with coarser hair too) know the slick hair struggle all too well; we’re constantly trying to find ways to make your hair look less greasy. It’s planning at exactly what time during the day hair needs to be washed so it will still look good during your evening date. It’s trying to avoid touching it and flinching away when others do. It’s extended time in front of the mirror wondering if an up-do is good enough or if today is just a hat-day. But greasy hair tends to be like most other insecurities: It always seems worse on yourself than how others see it.

If you’re feeling like your hair is just too oily regardless, there are certain things you can do to keep the oil production under control. While these methods will help make your locks less greasy in both the short and long term, it is important to fully evaluate and understand your current habits so you know how to properly fix them. Here are eight steps you can take toward having balanced hair:

1. Only Condition The Ends

Amazon

CHI Magnified Volume Conditioner, $17, Amazon

Applying conditioner all over can totally weigh hair down, causing oily roots. Instead, just apply conditioner from mid-shaft to ends.

It also pays to find a conditioner designed for oily hair types, like this one from CHI. It was specifically developed for fine hair to add body and fullness, without leaving residue behind. Just make sure use a small drop so you don’t overburden your hair.

2. Use Baby Powder

Amazon

If you prefer to go the old-fashioned route, opt for baby powder instead of dry shampoo. It will work the same way if you sprinkle some on your roots and rub it in. If you have dark hair and the baby powder causes too much of a white cast, just brush some bronzer onto your roots instead or mix the baby powder with cocoa.

This baby powder from Ora’s Amazing Herbals not only smells heavenly thanks to the vetiver, lavender, clary sage, it’s also free of talc, corn, grain, gluten, parabens, and synthetic fragrances.

3. Use Dry Shampoo

Amazon

Klorane Dry Shampoo, $20, Amazon

An obvious one, yes, but dry shampoo will not only suck up oil from your roots making your hair appear less greasy in the moment, but it will also allow you to spend more time between washes which will make your hair less greasy in the long run too.

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk has earned something of a cult following for being ultra gentle and not leaving behind an annoying white residue.

4. Wash Less Often

Amazon

Kenra Clarifying Shampoo, $25, Amazon

I know, I know. This sounds totally counterintuitive. But if the scalp is constantly being stripped of oils, the more forcefully it tries to replace those oils. This makes hair greasier in the shorter term than necessary. So if you’re washing your hair everyday, try to take it down to every other day. If you’re already doing that, try washing every three-four days.

Also try to use a clarifying shampoo once every so often to make sure there is no buildup in your hair that is weighing it down. Just don’t use one too often as it can strip too much oil, sending production into overdrive. Kenra’s Clarifying Shampoo is especially great for color-treated hair, or if you have hard water. It removes dulling deposits and brightens highlights.

5. Balance Your Brushing

Amazon

GranNaturals Boar Bristle Brush, $13, Amazon

Not brushing enough keeps natural oils from being distributed, and they just build up on the scalp. Over-brushing, on the other hand, can stimulate oil production. So just make sure to find a healthy balance for your hair.

Boar bristle brushes are particularly good for those with oily hair, according to Fox & Jane Co-Founder Lorean Cairns, in a previous interview with Bustle. This bristle brush from GranNaturals is great at distributing oil from roots to ends, all while stimulating the scalp.

6. Choose Your Products Wisely

Make sure you don’t use too many mousses and gels that can cause buildup. Also try to avoid products that make hair “shiny” as these can make oily-prone hair just look greasier. If you can, just cut out styling products altogether.

7. Try Not To Touch Your Hair

Fotolia / nd3000

That means with your hands or your face. Because your fingertips and face both produce oil that can easily be transferred to your hair, avoid playing with it or using styles that allow too much to touch your face.

8. Avoid Straightening Hair

Amazon

Conair Double Ceramic Curling Iron, $12, Amazon

The more closely your hair lies to your head, the more oil it comes in contact with. Curled hair (whether natural or not) gives a little more volume at the roots which keeps hair from becoming too oily too quickly.

The Double Ceramic Curling Iron from Conair is great for adding long-lasting classic curls, without frizz. Plus, it has a cool tip for safe handling and 30 different heat settings.

Basics, Summer Inspiration #1

A reader wrote in with this disturbing dilemma:

“My hair is pretty much always oily except for day 1 after a shampoo. (I live on dry shampoo so I’m not washing every day.) I’d like to be able to wash my hair at night and style it in the morning, but by the time I wake up, my hair is already a little greasy! Is there anything I can do to keep my hair fresh while I’m sleeping? My old college roommate used to hairspray her hairline before bed, but does that really work?” –Lily

I went to the mane masters at Salon Lucien:

We get asked that question quite a bit from our clients.

1. We recommend a shampoo for oily roots and dry ends such as the Kerastase Cristalliste.
2. Conditioners are going to add to her problems so she needs a detangler, such as Oribe’s Foundation Mist, which is light and weightless.
3. After styling her hair at night, put on top of the head in a loose scrunchy (preferably the old-fashioned kind with fabric on it). This really helps holding the style and or blow out. It will stop the distribution of oil from directly laying and rolling over the hair at night.
4. THE MORE BRUSHING OF THE HAIR, THE MORE OIL SECRETION.
5. The last thing, try distributing a small amount of witch hazel or Sea Breeze throughout the scalp when EXITING the shower.
6. Dry Shampoo is a must, but for her, try one that is not a texturizing spray and a true dry shampoo such as Kevin Murphy Fresh Hair!

P.S. Hair spray has a lot of alcohol and can actually increase her oil production if used in excess.

This is why your hair gets greasy and what you can do about it

It’s all in the way you wash it, Katie Wright discovers.

If you regularly get greasy hair, you’ll know that lathering up and washing away all that oil until your locks are squeaky-clean feels amazing.

But did you know that every time you get all sudsy on your scalp, you could actually be making the problem worse?

According to Fabian Lliguin, founder of Rahua haircare, while shampooing may alleviate the greasiness in the short term, in the long term it can be detrimental.

How? Here, Lliguin busts a common myth about shampooing and reveals what you should be doing instead…

What are the common causes of greasy hair?

“A common cause of greasy hair is often over-shampooing, and over-massaging the scalp while shampooing, which stimulates sebum glands to produce more oils, resulting in a greasy scalp and greasy hair.”

Is greasy hair damaging, or a symptom of damaged hair?

“Greasy hair is a scalp imbalance, and a symptom of over-shampooing and daily massaging, which depletes vital moisturising elements from the scalp and hair.

“In response, the scalp (sebum glands) produces more oils, making a greasy scalp and the damage results in dry hair, particularly at the ends.”

😂 sounds familiar. My hair likes to go frizzy on me and it likes to do its own thing. Usually I just put it up in a ponytail But I prefer to just leave it natural, wash and go… Anyone else? . . . #hair #hairstyles #frizzyhair #frizzy #naturalhair #frizzyhairdontcare #naturalisbetter #greasyhair

What is sebum?

“Sebum is an oily substance produced by the sebaceous glands. It keeps the scalp moisturised and prevents hair from becoming brittle, but too much of it can cause limp roots and dandruff, and can lead to greasy hair.

“Increased sebum production can be a cause of many factors, including hormone fluctuations (testosterone and adrenaline), and excess product use and lifestyle.”

Does it mean hair is dirty if it’s greasy?

“Greasy hair attracts dirt and debris, thus creating dirtier hair faster.”

How can you stop greasy hair?

“Sulphates are strong chemicals for removing all types of grease. When used on the hair, it over-stimulates the scalp to respond for more oils faster, exacerbating the greasy scalp and hair status.

“I recommend shampooing hair with gentle shampoos – and no more than necessary. Be aware that it will take approximately two to three weeks for the scalp to regain its balance and produce the correct amount of oils for the hair to be healthy.”

Have you heard? Our new Clarifying Hair Wash is completely sulphate-free 🙌 This means it’s not only less drying on the hair and kinder to the scalp, but also and so much better for the environment, making it a total win for our hair and the Earth 🌏 #GreenBeautyRevolution #shampoo #vegan #crueltyfree #naturalhair #zerochemicals #greasyhair #hairsalon #naturalfragrance #nosulfates #nosls

It’s easy to fall into a daily hair-wash cycle (the appeal of shower-fresh roots day-in-day out is difficult to resist), but, it can be much harder to work your way back out again. Once you’ve trained your hair into a regular rinse, it can feel icky and greasy if you try and eke and extra day out of it.

But, just think of all the extra time that could be spent watching The Crown or catching up on kip, if we could cut back on the wash and blow drys.

That’s why we’ve called on the best hairdressers in the business to share their ultimate hacks for beating greasy hair once and for all.

And, if you can’t bear to leave hair unwashed for longer than a day, you’re in luck, because these top tips and tricks will give you the best hair of your life, plus an extra hour in bed. Winning.

1. Choose your shampoo and conditioner carefully

Iain Sallis, founder of Hairmedic and trichologist, says it’s essential to select your shampoo and conditioner carefully. He advises avoiding any shampoo and conditioner labelled with the words: ‘dry’, ‘damaged’, ‘smoothing’ or ‘glossy’.

“They may all just be coating the hair in a fine film, which is good for what it states, but not good if your hair is prone to looking greasy,” he explains. “The coating will add to the oil produced and cause the hair to become dull and oily looking.”

2. What to eat to avoid greasy hair

Mark Woolley, founder of Electric Hair, says your diet can have a direct impact on the condition of your hair, so try to avoid oil in your daily food intake and increase your daily intake of fruit and vegetables.

3. Don’t wash your hair every day

As hard as it may be to resist, the more you clean your hair, the more oil your scalp produces to compensate. “If you normally wash your hair everyday, it will take time to adjust to just washing it every few days so you may have to tie it back or wear a headband (very on trend) for the in-between days,” says Mark. “However, once your hair adjusts, you will notice a dramatic difference by not washing it everyday.”

4. Add a purifying shampoo to your beauty arsenal

If you suffer from greasy hair, Mark believes it is more likely down to an oily scalp than oily hair. He says you should consider using a purifying shampoo as this is a deep cleanser and will help remove any excess oil build-up. “Use a purifying shampoo on a weekly basis and follow with your preferred shampoo and conditioner to best suit your hair type,” he said. You could also try taking a hair growth supplement, such as Gold Collagen Hairlift, which nourishes hair from within helping to maintain healthy hair and scalp.

5. And only apply conditioner sparingly on the ends

If you run out of conditioner faster than shampoo, you’re doing it wrong. The smooth-maker in your shower should be used sparingly and on your ends only. Many of us with dry or coloured hair fall into the trap of applying it higher and higher in order to de-tangle until it’s basically at our roots. But the higher you apply it, the faster your hair will become greasy. Instead, try using a Wet Brush (£11.99) to tame your tangles. The bristles are soft enough not to cause breakage but strong enough to tackle the most stubborn knots.

6. The specific amount of shampoo you should use

Jack Merrick Thirlway, senior stylist from Neville, says there’s a specific amount of shampoo you should use to ensure hair doesn’t get too greasy. “When washing the hair, it is very important not to use too much shampoo as it can become heavy on the hair,” he explained. “Generally speaking, a 10 pence piece amount of product is sufficient – and two quick washes rather than one long wash will work better.”

He also stresses that you shouldn’t use water that’s too hot when washing your hair as it will strip the natural oils off the cuticle and the scalp will replace it immediately, leaving hair greasy. “Be sure to cool the water for the last rinse to add shine,” he added.

7. Use apple cider vinegar

This method from popular Facebook sharing only involves two ingredients: water, and apple cider vinegar.

Simply dilute apple cider vinegar in a cup of water, one user advised, and pour it through the hair. Leave for a few minutes et voilà: build-up is banished, and hair is left squeaky clean and 100% grease-free.

And the best part? This super-smart hair hack is easy on the purse strings (or, you know, free if you already have some wonder vinegar in the cupboard), as apple cider vinegar will usually only set you back a couple of quid.

So many of us struggle with having to wash our hair every day because it gets oily, but getting to the root of the problem – quite literally – makes more sense than battling the beauty affliction (although some of these hairstyles for greasy hair are kinda cute). So, here are 8 things to stop doing that could be the cause of your greasy hair.

1. Touching your hair too often

Like constantly touching your face (which is a whole other beauty blunder in itself) fiddling with your hair – flirtatiously or out of boredom – transfers oils from your fingertips to your strands. Also try and (nicely) discourage your s/o from touching your hair too much in bed – feels nice but doesn’t look nice come morning.

2. Over-washing

Yes, 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 2/3 times a week. Your hair will thank you in the long run.

3. Over-conditioning

Be cautious with conditioner. You may be applying a conditioner that’s too heavy for your hair type, which can weigh it down. Or you may not be washing it out properly – another grease-giving culprit. And finally avoid placing your conditioner all over your hair, focus on the ends to avoid causing oily roots and lank lengths.

4. Over-brushing

Brushing your hair too much can stimulate oil production, which at first looks glossy, but soon looks greasy. Again, stick to detangling the lengths and ends if you’ve got an obsessive hair brushing habit.

5. Your hairbrush is dirty

Your hairbrush can harbor all sorts of nasties – build-up of stale styling products and dust are only the obvious ones! A clogged brush will transfer these onto the hair, making it feel dirty, so make sure yours is cleaned properly on a regular basis.

6. Your hairbrush is full of hair

A hairy brush might not seem like an offender, but if your hair is greasy (which it is otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this) by using a brush clogged with hairs you’ll only be transferring grease from old strands back onto your clean hair. Fail.

7. 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 promise ‘shine’ and ‘moisture’ which would be better suited to dry or dull hair types.

8. Product build-up that needs detoxing

Styling products can cause the scalp and strands to become clogged up. If you’re a dry shampoo junkie (like most greasy hair sufferers), you might want to give your locks a detox by using a clarifying shampoo 2-4 times a month, or a product designed to exfoliate the scalp. It is the gateway to healthy hair, after all.

9 reasons why your hair’s getting greasy – and what can help

Hair weighing you down? Here’s why and the best ‘slick fixes’ for keeping excess oil at bay

Sebum – it’s not a bad thing. It keeps the scalp moisturised and prevents hair from getting brittle and breaking off. However too much of the stuff can lead to all manner of hair concerns – limp roots, lank lengths and dandruff.

Excessive production can be brought on by a wide variety of factors ranging from hormone fluctuations to lifestyle and styling slip-ups. But the good news is, it can be rectified. If you’ve found that your hair’s become greasier than usual, here’s what could be behind it.

1. You’re stressed

Just like how stress can show on our faces (breakouts, dark circles, y’know, the good stuff), it can also manifest itself on our heads too. This is down to changes in hormone levels which can lead to increased oil production on the scalp. So if your hair’s greasier than usual, it could be a sign that you need to slow down.

2. You’re over-washing it

When hair gets greasy quickly, our first instinct is to wash it more frequently. However, doing so can be counter-productive in the long-run. “Over-shampooing depletes vital moisturising elements from the scalp and hair,” explains hair stylist and Rahua founder Fabian Lliguin. “In response, the scalp’s sebum glands produce more oils, giving rise to a greasy scalp.”

To reduce the risk of fuelling the problem, swap washing it every day to washing it two to three times a week instead.

3. You’re using the wrong shampoo

If you’re finding that your hair gets greasy pretty soon after washing it, the shampoo you’re using could also be a reason why. Avoid heavily hydrating and rich formulations and instead opt for gentler, rebalancing alternatives that provide a thorough cleanse without stripping hair of its natural oils. A new one I’ve been trying recently and my greasy roots and dry ends have been particularly receptive to is Tropic’s Nourishing Hair Cleanser, £18, a certified vegan non-foaming sulphate-free shampoo formulated to help regulate sebum production and which you leave in for three to five minutes. It also smells pretty delicious thanks to its blend of coconut extracts and peppermint, bergamot and lime essential oils. If you’re looking for a root-boost though, the GTG team rates Rahua’s Voluminous Shampoo, £32, which uses gentle coconut oil-derived cleansers to lift away impurities. It can take a while for hair to get used to a change in cleansers, so don’t worry if you don’t see a difference straight away. “Be aware that it will take approximately two to three weeks for the scalp to regain its balance and produce the correct amount of oils for the hair to be healthy,” says Fabian.

If you have an greasy scalp teamed with dandruff, (a common occurrence), I can strongly recommend Philip Kingsley’s Flaky/Itchy Shampoo, £24, which effectively mops up excess oil and leaves scalps soothed too thanks to its antibacterial and gentle but hard-working ingredients.

4. You’re using too much conditioner

If you’re greasiness-prone, be wary of conditioners, and only apply them to the bottom sections of your hair (the ends and mid-lengths) and experiment with different textures in order to find the best kind for your hair type. Pantene’s line of Foam Conditioners, £3, or its Micellar Cleanse & Nourish Conditioner, £3, are particularly great in this regard, especially for fine hair types.

5. You’re applying too much serum

The same applies for serums and oils too. Start small (it’s easier to add more than to remove excess) and concentrate on the ends first before moving upwards, avoiding the roots at all costs. A handy tip (thank you Jamie Stevens!) is to spread a drop of your styling product on the fronts and backs of your hands and then apply it, rather than just using your palms to ensure more even distribution.

6. You’re not washing your hairbrush

Admittedly, I don’t clean my makeup brushes all too often and my hairbrush, even less. But sitting here thinking about the amount of hair, oil, dead skin, dust and product it must be harbouring, has made me want to revise my habits. Give it a thorough cleanse twice a month (and clean out the strands with a comb every week) to remove any build-up and prevent it from transferring onto your hair.

7. You’ve got a build-up of product

A build-up of shampoo (due to not washing it out properly) or dry shampoo (a common go-to of the greasiness-prone) can cause hair to become dull and lifeless over time. However, using a clarifying shampoo twice a month can help clear the debris.

Try Tropic’s new Clarifying Hair Wash, £16, if you’re looking for a deeper cleanse that won’t leave lengths feeling stripped – it uses coconut-derived cleansers instead of sulphates and contains aloe vera juice and babassu extract so it’s not drying.

For the next level up, try Avalon’s Clarifying Lemon Shampoo, £5.99, a vegan, synthetic fragrance-free find that uses plant-derived cleansers like lemon essential oil to banish excess oil and product build-up. And for an even deeper clean, try Tresemme’s Cleanse & Renew Deep Cleansing Shampoo, £5.49, a purse-friendly but potent option that steams through the toughest of grease (sorry to sound like a Cillit Bang ad there).

8. You’re touching it too much

When I’m stressed, I twiddle with my hair. Non-stop. However, doing so transfers oil from my hands to my hair and as a result, makes my lengths all the more slick. It might just be better if I bought a stress ball…

9. You’re on your period

Along with cramps and bloating, yes, greasy hair is another thing we have to deal with when we’re on our periods – and hormones are to blame. In the week beforehand, progesterone levels spike which increases sebum production on the scalp and face. And then once we start bleeding, increases in testosterone trigger it again. The good news though is that it should settle down after a few days. If however, you’re looking for a quick slick fix, plan your bi-monthly clarifying hair wash to coincide with your period to make those five to eight days that little bit more bearable.

10 Ways to Make Your Hair Less Greasy and More Fabulous

With summer around the corner your oily hair may get a little oilier. Factors include; warmer temperatures, humidity, stress, unhealthy eating habits, medication, and an overuse of hair products can all give hair an oily, dirty appearance. Sometimes that’s just how it is especially if you have fine hair. However, for some of us our hair gets oily because of the habits we keep. If your oily hair is making you feel less confident we’re going to change that right now. Here are 10 easy tips and remedies you can use to keep those locks bouncy and shiny without the grease:

1. Go for a messy top knot bun

Take advantage of your “slightly” dirty hair and go for hairstyles that are chic but purposefully messy. The grease will help give your hair some texture which makes it easy to create the look. No matter how many bad hair days you face, messy top knot buns will save you every time.

2. Avoid conditioners in the scalp

Applying conditioner to your roots will definitely weigh your hair down and cause your roots to get oilier as well. Instead, just apply the right amount of conditioner from mid-shaft to ends.

3. Use dry shampoo

An obvious one, yes, but dry shampoo will not only suck up oil from your roots making your hair appear less greasy in the moment, but it will also allow you to spend more time between washes which will make your hair less greasy in the long run too.

DIY all-natural dry shampoo

Ingredients:

  1. 1/4 cup arrowroot powder or cornstarch
  2. OR 2 tablespoons arrowroot/cornstarch + 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder (for dark hair)

Instructions:

  1. Mix ingredients in a glass bowl and store it in a glass jar.
  2. Apply the powder with an old make-up brush to the roots or oily parts of your hair.
  3. If you don’t have a makeup brush, comb the powder through your hair.
  4. Apply before going to bed or at least 2 hours in advance so that it has time to absorb.

4. Don’t over brush

Not brushing enough keeps natural oils from being distributed, and they just build up on the scalp. Over-brushing, on the other hand, can stimulate oil production. So just make sure to find a healthy balance for your hair.

5. Buy the right products

Make sure you don’t use too many mousses and gels that can cause buildup. Also try to avoid products that make hair “shiny” as these can make oily-prone hair just look greasier. Stay away from these products whenever possible.

6. Avoid straightening hair

The more closely your hair lies to your head, the more oil it comes in contact with. Curly hair (whether natural or not) gives you a little more volume at the roots which prevents hair from becoming too oily, too quickly.

7. Use natural remedies

When taking your next shower pour a bit of apple cider vinegar into your hair, work it through your roots, and rinse it out. Raw, organic apple cider vinegar is acidic enough that it helps restore the pH balance of your hair, ridding the scalp of buildup, yet is gentle enough that it doesn’t strip your strands of essential nutrients. It’s also gentle enough to use on color-treated hair.

Black tea rinse for oily hair

Black tea has an astringent known as tannic acid that helps prevent buildup of excess oil on the scalp by tightening the pores.

  1. Boil 1-2 tablespoons of black tea.
  2. Strain the tea leaves.
  3. Cool to room temperature.
  4. Pour mixture on your scalp and hair.
  5. Leave it on for 5 minutes, rinse it off, and then wash your hair with a Pure Fiji Coconut Milk Shampoo.

8. Use the right shampoo

Choose the right shampoo. If you’re using a shampoo formulated for oily hair it can be too harsh for everyday use. Select a mild shampoo like Pure Fiji’s coconut milk shampoo. It’s a natural coconut cleanser that effortlessly removes buildup, while exotic extracts nourish your hair and scalp – restoring bounce and shine for healthy looking hair. It’s also sulphate free. Read the label on your shampoo to make sure it does not contain the following ingredients: protein, silicone, quaternium, cetyl alcohol or stearyl alcohol.

9. Wash your hair at night.

During the night you’ve basically flatten your hair against your pillow. If you wash your hair at night it may give your more sleep time but you’ll get more bounce in your hair if you wash it in the morning.

10. Avoid over washing

You’re thinking that washing your hair as often as possible will make your hair less oily. Unfortunately it will backfire on you. If the oils are stripped too often this triggers your scalp to produce more oil which results in greasier hair faster. If you’ve been washing your hair everyday try doing it every other day.

Whether you’ve been born with oily hair or not, the weather, sweating during a workout or dancing the night away can turn anyone’s locks from a cascading, shimmering, beautiful head of hair to a limp, damp looking, greasy mess. However, by using these 10 simple tips and choosing the right natural products like Pure Fiji’s you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that you’re adding bountiful goodness to your healthy locks.
