I'm 16 years old and i have the most oily, gross hair ever ! I wash it everyday, people say not to, but if i dont i cant go in public because its so disgusting. I'm a junior in highschool now, and i dont want my hair to look this way when school starts ! I need some home remedys to help my hair ! Please & thank you !
my hair used to be the same exact way. everyone told me not to wash it everyday, but i had too! thank god my hair has changed and is no longer like this, maybe yours will change too! here are some tips ive found when i had oily hair: dont use too much shampoo at once (only use like a dime sized amount), dont condition your hair everyday (i use to like every 3 days and mainly conditioned the ends, not so much at the roots, youll find conditioning your hair is a big part of the oilyness) and if you apply any product in your hair, such as mouse or heat protectant, focus those on the ends of your hair too. you dont want too many products near your roots. you can also buy a dry shampoo, so whenever your hair starts to get a little oily, spray some in & brush it out & then its normal hair again :) treseme had a pretty cheap one that works okay. like i said, my hair changed, so theres still hope for your hair as well, lol. good luck!
ugh my hair is EXACTLY the same!! dry shampoo only lasts for a little while and then BAM! back to gross! Even when I try to shower the night before, if I then straighten it the next morning it gets oily again super fast, I can't win! :(
I'm going to keep checking back at this post incase something is posted that will help me too!!
Are you applying conditioner at the root of your hair as well? You might be having product build up. Try conditioning your hair at the ends and work upward leaving little to no product at your roots. It might help.
You should try O'Right Camellia Oil Control Shampoo. This shampoo controls the excess oil secretion, purifies the scalp, and moisturizes hair. I always see great results with this shampoo, plus it smells amazing!!

i have the same problem lolz first i noticed is you shouldnt wash your hair every day, perhaps everyother day :) and i usually switch my shampoo every month lolz idk if that would help but it helps me a whole lot! :)
have you tried dry shampoo, and have you heard about training hair? allthatsglitter21 posted a video about it. basically you don't wash it for a number of days to train it from getting oily but id do it for a period of time you don't really plan on going anywhere
I used to have this problem and i tried all kind of shampoos but sometimes (in my case too) its totally hormonal. I started to talke birth control pills to regularize my period and my oily hair problems dissapeared, so if this persist maybe you should ask a doctor
You can use lemons or white vinegar mixed with water and apply it to your scalp. When its time to shampoo the most important thing is to massage your scalp because thats going to help with the oil control. I would say condition your hair once or twice a week but only to your ends! Another trick is if you see your hair starts to look noticeably oily, you can sprinkle some baby powder on your roots and after about 5minutes just comb it through your hair. hope this helps!

My hair was exactly the same way until, because I was finishing up my degree and extremely busy, I only found the time to shower once every 2-3 days. After this, my hair has lost a LOT of its greasiness and I can go about a day or two between washes and my hair retains a lot more volume.
It seems really gross but honestly it helped my hair a whole lot to just wash it less. Give it a try for a couple of weeks and see if your scalp stops over producing oils!
Some tips for styling your hair between washes are to use dry shampoo the day after washing (or even the volumizing powder that is becoming popular), or if you're like me with bangs that get greasier faster, tease them into a little pompadour and pin it back and wear a ponytail. No one will even know you didn't wash your hair.
Oh yeah and I concentrate conditioner to the ends of my hair and only run whatever is left on my palms over the roots and midshaft of my hair. I try to use sulfate-free shampoo also.

Dry shampoo is great if you have oily hair. I recommend the No Drought dry shampoo by Lush. I tried a lot of other dry shampoos but it either left a gray tint in my hair or it smelled weird. This one doesn't and it smells like lemon. I highly recommend it. Also, its cheaper compared to high end brands.

U need to train ur hair and inbeteeen that time babypowder will be ur best friend/dry shampoo hah
I have oily hair too, but ive fojnd that you should only apply conditioner on the ends of your hair. It may also be the shampoo. Or that you apply too many products on the roots of your hair. Also, always make sure to wash your hair really well at your roots to make sure you're cleaning it well
I have hair that is the same way. the best thing that i have found is not to touch your hair, the more that you keep your hands in it the quicker it will get oily; also over brushing can make it get oily sooner.
