Oily scalp is your hair’s worst enemy in summer. The oil and sweat when teamed together can wreak havoc on your hair, making it rough, dull and brittle. Excess sebum by the sebaceous glands of the scalp is what makes your hair greasy and unmanageable, especially during summer. While some secretion is normal for a healthy scalp, too much can cause itchiness and dandruff.
Greasy hair (which is a result of oily scalp) is annoying, especially when you know your hair is clean and dirt-free. To help you get rid of an oily scalp, here are some hacks...
- Ditch your straightener
- Choose the right shampoo and conditioner
- Rinse your hair thoroughly
- Blow-dry your hair
Ditch your straightener
Even though straighteners are a blessing to your hair, they are the reason for greasiness in your scalp. Did you know? The straighter your hair is, the more scalp-oil it comes in contact with. The curls at the root lift your hair up, thus, making it harder to get oily. So, take a break from your straightener and embrace your natural waves.
Choose the right shampoo and conditioner
If you suffer from an oily scalp all throughout the year, then you need to switch your shampoo. Go for a clarifying hair cleanser instead of a moisturising shampoo. We suggest you get your hands on the Dove Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo which helps in balancing your hair’s natural oil levels. Moisturize the ends of your hair with a hydrating conditioner such as the TRESemmé Botanique Nourish & Replenish Conditioner in order to keep your scalp grease-free.
Rinse your hair thoroughly
If a particular section of your hair feels greasy, then there are chances that you’re not rinsing the shampoo and conditioner out of your hair properly. To avoid this situation, section your hair into quarters to make sure you’re getting rid of all the shampoo and conditioner evenly.
Blow-dry your hair
For all the times when you’re in a rush, blow-dry your hair to give it that much-needed just-washed lift. This can help you get rid of the oil that’s built up and will make your hair look like you’ve just stepped out of the shower.
