Much as we’d like to blame summer for all of our beauty woes, I will be real with you. We find ourselves wondering how to get rid of greasy hair basically year round. Whether it’s humidity, heat, or our beauty-product obsession leaving us with buildup and oil, we’re literally in a constant battle between clean-ass hair and impossible-to-ignore grease. But after experimenting with every damn cleansing formula out there, we’ve *finally* found some real, no-bull shit solutions for making grease nothing but a figment of your imagination.
- Usually, I encourage less washing for a healthier approach to hair, but if you have oily hair, you probably need to wash a bit more. When you shampoo, it collects the oils and dirt and gives you the opportunity to rinse it out of your hair. Washing daily or every other day may do the trick.
- Fortunately, apple cider vinegar has the ability to kill fungus and bacteria, it makes a great home remedy for oily hair. One of the most popular natural remedies out there. Simply dilute two to three tablespoons in a cup of water, and then put it on your hair. A spray bottle may make it easier, just make sure you get it into the roots and scalp. Rinse after two to three minutes. Apply two or three times a week!
- Dry Shampoo made out of arrowroot powder and essential oils can prevent the greasiness from getting to the hair. This is a great option especially if you are in a hurry. While some choose baby powder, you can also use corn starch.
