How To Treat Dry Scalp And Oily Hair

Learn how to treat and get rid of dry scalp and oily hair once and for all

Having a dry scalp and oily hair might sound like a contradiction, but these two conditions are actually more closely related than you might think. When you suffer from a dry scalp, your body then goes into overdrive, attempting to compensate for the dryness by producing more oil on your scalp, which then gives your hair a greasy and flaky appearance. Fortunately, there are many ways to combat dry scalp and oily hair at the same time. First off, you will want to wash hair daily with a shampoo that is designed for dry or oily hair such as Head and Shoulders 1 In 1 Dry Scalp Shampoo and Conditioner. You also should avoid scrubbing the product into your scalp and instead should lather it onto your hair, so that you can avoid drying out the skin further. Be sure to rinse hair well in order to eliminate residue, which only causes more oiliness. Read 8 Best Dandruff Shampoos for a list of more products that readers swear by.

To better treat and prevent dry scalp and oily hair, only use conditioner on the ends of your hair, where it needs it the most. If your scalp is extra oily, avoid using conditioner or skip to every other use. You can also mix apple cider vinegar with water to your hair, which will help soak up and remove some of the excess oils. Using a shampoo that has tea tree oil as one of the main ingredients is also effective with treating greasy hair and helps balance the production of oil on your scalp. You should also avoid touching your hair too often and avoid using gels or shine products on your hair, which only weigh it down and make it appear more greasy. If all else fails, you can also consult your dermatologist, who may prescribe you a prescription strength shampoo and conditioner.
