Most people think that the right shampoo can help fix oily hair by itself, but in truth, you also need to use a good conditioner for oily hair. Both shampoo and conditioner serve different purposes: the role of shampoo is to remove dirt and sebum along with product buildup from the scalp, while the job of conditioner is to add shine and protect your hair from drying out. If you use the wrong conditioner, you could actually be contributing to increased oiliness without even knowing it! The best conditioner for oily hair is a lightweight formula that ideally contains tea tree oil in order to help absorb oil from your scalp. Some recommended products include Jheri Redding RX Tea Tree Conditioner and Nisim Oil Free Conditioner. Read

Other tips to be used in conjunction with a conditioner for oily hair are to avoid massaging the product into your scalp, which contributes to further product buildup on your scalp. Concentrate the product on the ends of your hair, focusing mainly on the tips, and do not leave on your locks for too long. Be sure to rinse all the product from your hair, then blast your hair with cold water to seal in shine and moisture. For more tips on fighting oily hair, check out
