According to experts, to keep your hair healthy and prevent excessive dryness, it is best to keep hair washing to a minimum (about once or twice a week). This is because the harsh cleansing agents and other chemicals present in shampoos could over dry your scalp and leave your hair super dry and frizzy.
While this works really well for people with normal to dry scalp, those with an oily, greasy scalp find this piece of advice challenging to follow. But don’t you worry because your friends at BeBe have the perfect solution to this problem. By making just a few tweaks in your hair washing and styling routine, you can efficiently train your hair to produce less oil and keep it absolutely fresh and bouncy in-between washes…
01. Use a clarifying shampoo
Did you know that dirt and product residue tend to settle on oily scalp very easily, thereby leading to a lot of build-ups? Your regular shampoo may not be able to eliminate it completely, which can make your hair turn greasy the very next day post shampooing. This is why using a clarifying shampoo once in 2-3 weeks eliminates this build-up and refreshes your scalp instantly to prevent your hair from looking dull and dry.
02. Use a dry shampoo
Dry shampoos are definitely godsent, especially if your scalp tends to get really oily in between washes. Simply spraying a generous amount before going to bed soaks away excess oils to ensure that your hair looks utterly refreshed and voluminous the following day. Try it; we promise you won’t be disappointed!

03. Wear a shower cap
The steam and humidity from the hot water in the shower can make your hair look greasy, increase oil production and eventually make your hair look really limp even if you just washed it the previous day. But simply covering your head with a shower cap is enough to protect your hair from these elements and thereby keep your strands bouncy and grease-free in-between washes.
