Greasy Hair


Does your hair look oily, dirty and stick to your head even if you just washed it yesterday? It can be embarrassing that others probably think that you have not bathed for a week or you could not be bothered by washing your hair. Well, the problem is actually until the sebaceous glands produce too much oil. These glands are just below the surface of your skin and they secrete sebum which is a mixture of fatty acids that help protect your scalp. You probably have a lot more active glands that secretes this thing like there was no tomorrow. There can be a number of things, some of which are out of your control and others that you can take action.

One of the reasons is genetics, which you unfortunately can not do much. But, there are things you can do to help control the problem, so keep reading. Other factors could be due to stress or poor nutrition.

Choose a shampoo rich in lauryl sulphate and poor in conditioner such as lanolin. This will help remove oil in the hair and scalp. Even if you do not have dandruff, you can also try an anti-dandruff shampoo that contains coal tar. These types of shampoos tend to dry out even the most oily hair. It may be a bit obvious, but you need to wash your hair every day. In warm weather, especially when it is wet, you may need to wash your hair twice. Take your time when it comes to shampooing, be sure to leave it on your hair for several minutes. This will give him time to remove the oil properly. Be sure to rinse the shampoo thoroughly and repeat the process a second time. Remember not to use after conditioner, as this will only return the oil you just washed.

Rather than rinse with water, try using a strong rosemary tea. This plant contains oils that help control your scalp from more oil production. To make the rinse solution, pour a cup of boiling water over 2 tablespoons of dried rosemary. After about 30 minutes, filter the water into a container and allow to cool. After your final rinse of hair, splash your hair with this water. You do not have to rinse it off unless you do not like the scent of the herb.
