How to Get Rid of Oily, Sticky and Greasy Hair


Lifestyle Desk, Delhi Magazine: If your hair starts feeling sticky after a day or two of washing? If yes then you have oily hair. The natural oil secretion of the roots helps in keeping your hair healthy. But if your hair is producing more oil then it is called oily hair. All this happens due to many reasons like genetic, hormonal imbalance, excessive stress, eating more oily food, due to excessive sweating in monsoon and not taking care of hair. Oily hair is difficult to handle, due to which they tend to collect. Dandruff and itching are also common due to oily hair.

Getting your hair greasy quickly can be a real nightmare. You go into a vicious circle where you wash your hair every day or every other day and it just gets greasier and greasier. Over time, the more complex problem appears – greasy roots and dry ends. The hair is exhausted and dried to such an extent that the moisture does not reach the ends, making them dry, broken, split, blooming.

Hair tends to look unwashed, lifeless and dirty this way, so it’s important to keep your hair oil under control. To remove oily hair, it is very important to clean the roots. However, washing hair daily is also not the right way. The chemicals present in the shampoo aggravate your problem even more. So while not using these chemicals, you should use some home remedies.

How to deal with oily hair?

Wait a minimum of 48 hours between washes

If you’ve been washing your hair daily because you’re embarrassed to go out with greasy hair, try to get over it. Start gradually increasing the intervals between washes, starting at 48 hours. This will “teach” the sebaceous glands to secrete less sebum. The drier the scalp is from frequent washing, the more sebum is secreted to compensate for the dryness.

Use sulfate-free shampoo

Sulfates and silicones are some of the most harmful ingredients for hair and scalp. Sulfates are too harsh on the skin, stripping the skin of its natural oils deep down, leaving it dry, irritated and tight.

Rinse with apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar has the property of balancing the pH of the scalp. It has an alkaline character, which has a positive effect on oiliness, normalizing it. Rinsing with apple cider vinegar also has a beneficial effect against dandruff. Acetic acid restores the shine of the hair, reduces itching and greasiness of the scalp. Apple cider vinegar balances the pH level of your scalp and draws out dirt and oil. Mix 60 ml of apple cider vinegar in 1 liter of water. Put it in a spray bottle and spray it on your hair especially your scalp. Leave it for 5 to 10 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water.

Use sea salt spray

You can make a natural anti-oily sea salt spray. The salt draws the oils from the scalp and hair, while at the same time helping the hair to stay smooth and obedient without electrification and frizz effect.
