Washing hair everyday is a strict no-no
No matter how tempting it may be, washing your hair every day will only strip it of its natural oils. It is, therefore ideal to wash your hair thrice a week. Use the Sunsilk Nourishing Soft & Smooth Shampoo which cleanses your scalp and hair, leaving it soft and smooth. For those in-between days, when you can’t help the oily mane, simply tie it back or cover with a headscarf. Inculcate this habit and you will see a dramatic difference in the health of your mane.
Apple cider vinegar to your rescue
To prepare this hair mask, all you need is water and apple cider vinegar. Simply dilute apple cider vinegar in a cup of water and pour it through the hair. Leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing. You will be left with squeaky clean and grease-free hair.
Apply conditioner sparingly on the ends
Conditioning your hair after shampooing is must! However, keep in mind that the smooth-maker in your shower should be used sparingly and only on your ends. The higher you apply your conditioner, the faster your hair will become greasy. Go for the Tresemmé Keratin Smooth With Argan Oil Conditioner for straighter, smoother mane.
Your diet plays a crucial role
Did you know? What you eat has a direct impact on the health of your hair. Therefore, cut down on oily foods and increase your intake of fruits and green leafy vegetables.
Use the right method of shampooing
You need to shampoo your hair the right way to avoid greasiness. Firstly, avoid using too much shampoo as it can become heavy on the hair. Secondly, go for two quick washes rather than one long wash. And lastly, don’t wash your hair with water that’s too hot as it will strip the natural oils off the cuticle and the scalp will replace it immediately, leaving your hair greasy.
