How To Prevent Oily Hair

Learn how to prevent oily hair with these simple steps

The first step to follow when trying to prevent oily hair is to cut back on the amount of times you wash your hair. Do you wash your hair every day? Reduce that to every other day, or even every two days. By washing your hair too often, you are stripping your hair of essential oils, which it then hurries up and tries to produce more as a result of losing oil. By not washing your hair as often, you will be slowing down the response of your body and its natural tendency to produce more oil. Another way to prevent oily hair is to avoid shampoo that is hydrating or moisturizing, as these products often leave the scalp and hair more oily.

Another great way to prevent oily hair is to avoid applying conditioner directly to your scalp. Instead, focus more on the ends of hair, which tend to be the driest. It is also helpful to avoid using styling products, especially greasy gels, mousses and hairsprays which tend to make hair oily. You can also mix half a cup of lemon juice with three cups of water and pour the solution into your scalp to prevent oily hair. The acidity of the lemon juice works to absorb excess oil. Think all oil is bad? Think again. Be sure to check out 7 Best Oils For A Perfect Complexion for some of the best oils that will give you gorgeous skin.
