What Causes Greasy Hair?
Let’s start with the basics: what causes greasy hair? Greasy hair is caused by excess sebum production at the scalp. But don’t be too hasty to strip hair of all its oils – sebum is actually a good thing! It’s a natural oil that keeps hair hydrated and healthy. Some people just produce more sebum than others, which can leave hair looking overly oily.
Styling products, pollution and dust can also build up at the roots, dulling natural shine and creating the appearance of greasy hair. A diet high in saturated fats and refined carbohydrates can also cause the skin to increase oil production.
Don’t worry, though! With our top tips on how to get rid of greasy hair, we’ve made the solution simple.
How To Get Rid Of Greasy Hair
Following our 3 top tips is a surefire way to banish oily locks. We talk you through the best shampoo and conditioner for greasy hair, the best washing routine for tackling oily tresses, and the transformative power of a good dry shampoo. Time to say goodbye to grease and hello to your best hair ever.
Tip 1. Use The Best Shampoo For Greasy Hair
Shampoos containing heavy moisturising products can make greasy hair nightmares worse. Luckily, we have a dream shampoo and conditioner duo that have been formulated with oily hair in mind. Our XPANDER GELEE SHAMPOO, infused with caffeine and ginseng, cleans deeply without stripping hair of important natural oils. Its lightweight formula also adds showstopping volume.
Using a good conditioner for greasy hair is equally important for achieving non-oily and enviable tresses. The FUDGE XPANDER WHIP CONDITIONER is the perfect sidekick for our XPANDER GELEE SHAMPOO in combatting grease. Clever Fibre-Dense Technology coats each strand for the ultimate lightweight volume. When used together, you can be sure that your days of putting up with dull, flat hair are over.
Fudge Tip: When applying conditioner, concentrate on the ends of your hair. This avoids product buildup on the scalp which can cause greasy locks.
Tip 2. Don’t Wash Too Frequently
Now that you’ve got the products sorted, it’s time to address the best washing routine for greasy hair. It’s easy to fall into a routine of daily washing if you’re an oily hair sufferer – but this can actually do more harm than good. Overwashing can strip hair of essential oils, causing sebum glands to go into overdrive as they try to compensate. If you can, wait as long as possible between washes to train your locks into a pattern of regular sebum production.
We recommend washing 2 to 3 times a week. If you’re a daily washer and the thought of waiting this long between washes troubles you, you’ll be reassured by our next top tip.
Tip 3. Try A Dry Shampoo
A generous spritz of dry shampoo before leaving the house in the morning can really make all the difference to stretching out the time between washes. Our REVIVER DRY SHAMPOO wins all the prizes where grease-busting is concerned. This invisible spray, with oil-absorbing rose clay, banishes oil without leaving a trace.
It can be used every day or whenever your locks need a helping hand. Simply spray into the roots and brush through.
