Three easy tips for balancing your scalp and dealing with oily hair

© Provided by

Oily hair has popped up as a real concern as everyone’s hair regime changed over the last year and a half. Either we skipped a day or two between washing it, or not needing to style we didn’t pay much attention.

Before you jump in the shower, here’s the thing, oily hair can be the result of washing it too often. It’s true, washing your hair every day to keep oil under control can actually lead to an oilier scalp.

Washing too frequently removes the oils needed to keep the scalp lubricated, to compensate for a dry scalp it will produce more oil.

Balance is key to having healthy hair and a calm and normal scalp. Using the right ingredients and products can get the scalp producing minimal oil and looking healthy. These are our best solutions for oily hair.

Scalp Balance For Minimal Oil

Yes, you can treat oil with oil, the ginger root extract in this scalp treatment oil helps balance and regulate.

This concentrated formula blends antioxidant-rich argan oil and essential ginger oil to help correct imbalances and soothe inflammation of the hair follicle, which manages oil production.

Just a couple of drops are needed. Section the hair and massage two to three drops into the scalp at every section. With regular use, oiliness will slow, hair will have better volume and body. Salons and online.

Cleanse Without Drying Hair

Most people will immediately reach for a clarifying shampoo when their oily hair needs a deep clean. But that might not be best if the hair lengths are dry and parched.

Created for oily roots and dry ends, L’Oreal uses oil-absorbing clays in this rebalancing line. Clay, used in skincare too, is excellent for gently lifting away oil and sebum without drying out hair or scalp.

There is a shampoo, conditioner and pre-shampoo masque to tackle excess oil, all priced very competitively. Shop at your local pharmacy or supermarket.

Controlling Oil Every Day

A saving grace for oily hair, Bumble & Bumble created this great powder that is dry shampoo, a volumiser and style extender, €30.

Dry shampoo is a great way of mopping up oil, but even on fresh hair, it gives volume to the roots. This powder is a hybrid buy, volume and zero oil, it’s a bit unique in that respect.

Sprinkle some of the powder onto your fingertips and massage into the roots of the hair. Oily roots should look more matte, roots will look lifted and you will get yet another day from your hair before washing.
