Oily hair tips
The question is:
“My teenage daughter really struggles with oily hair. Her hair is naturally fine but wavy. She doesn’t want to want to wash every day. Any tips?”
And yes I do have lots of tips and some techniques. I hope the video helped to answer this question and here are links to the products I mentioned.
I completely agree with your daughter that she shouldn’t be washing her hair every day as this can make an oily scalp worse. Using dry shampoo on the in-between days can really help manage the appearance of oily hair.
Taking care when you wash your hair is really key to maintaining a healthy scalp.
I also want to add ain an extra point that were mentioned in the YouTube comments about the type of shampoo and conditioner that you are using. Strong sodium lauryl sulphate shampoos can be quite harsh on an oily scalp and cause you to produce more oil. Switching to a gentler shampoo, like sulphate-free shampoo, can help manage your hair scalp health.
The flat palm technique – Try this technique when washing your hair as it really makes a difference.
Conditioner on the scalp can definitely make your hair feel oilier. Focus on applying conditioner from the ears down.
Do a final rinse with cool water, if possible. This helps to neutralise the scalp. In saying that, I have super-hot showers and can’t really bear a cold water rinse. But just turning the water down a little for the final rinse does help. And then like me turn the water straight back up to warm up your body again. I have no idea how people take cold showers!
I hope these tips help to manage your oily hair.
