Some people think that washing and shampooing your hair daily can help you get rid of greasy hair. Specialists say that’s false because washing your locks too often will over stimulate the sebaceous glands, one of greasy hair causes.
Natural Solutions for Greasy Hair
Firstly, we would recommend using vinegar. You should mix two tablespoons of vinegar in a cup of distilled water and use this solution for rinsing your hair. It will help you remove excess oil from the hair and scalp. Or you can create a solution by diluting a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in some water. You should use it as the final rinse after shampooing your hair.
Perhaps you don’t like vinegar’s smell, it’s perfectly normal. If this is the case, we recommend using lemon juice. Mix a ¼ of lemon juice with a cup of water and rinse your hair with this solution. Lemon not only helps remove excess oil, but also reduces dandruff.
Also, you can try out essential oils. Just mix 10 drops of both lemon and lemongrass essential oils in a chemical free shampoo. Then, apply the shampoo and start rinsing.
We also love oatmeal for getting rid of greasy hair. Why? Because it absorbs very well the oil from your scalp and tresses. Plus, it helps exfoliating the scalp. All you have to do is rub some cooked oatmeal on your hair and scalp, let this mask sit for about 10 minutes and then rinse with warm water.
Another natural solution would be to mix some water with four tablespoons of green clay. Mix these ingredients together until they form a paste and then rub that mixture on your scalp. Leave this mask for half an hour and rinse. Keep in mind that you should apply this mask only on the hair roots.
Furthermore, we’ve got another ace up our sleeve. Just add one tablespoon of mint leaves and one of freshly chopped rosemary springs in two cups of boiling water. Next, you should add the juice of one lemon. Then, cover the infusion and leave it for about ten minutes. Once this time elapses, use this mixture for rinsing your greasy hair. You’ll see improvements after several applications.
In the end, we recommend using olive oil to fight greasy hair. You should put two teaspoons of warmed olive oil in your hair and start massaging your scalp. Then, put a towel around your head and keep it at least one hour. Afterwards, shampoo your hair, rinse, shampoo a second time and rinse well.
