Tips to make your hair less greasy

  1. Hair that gets greasy quickly can be very annoying. You have to take the time to wash them every time, sometimes once a day! If you prefer to wash your hair a little less, it is important to try different ways so that you can delay washing. It may take some effort, but the result is well worth it!

How does greasy hair form?

  1. When you suffer from oily hair, this often means that the sebaceous glands under the scalp produce abundant sebum. The production of sebum is completely normal and protects the skin from drying out, infections and keeps the skin supple. However, when your hair gets oily quickly, it means that the skin is producing too much sebum, which makes it greasy. There are many ways to control excess sebum production.

Avoid heat

  1. Try to keep the use of a flat iron, curling iron, hair dryer, ... to a minimum. The heat ensures that your scalp dries out and sebum production increases. As a result, the hairs on your scalp become greasy more quickly. Therefore, avoid washing your hair under very hot water.

Wash less

  1. Washing your hair too often unfortunately results in an increase in sebum production. Your scalp and hair get used to the frequency that you wash the hair. This makes your hair greasy faster. That is why it is important to wash your hair as little as possible and to 'postpone' it if a wash is not really necessary.

Healthy food

  1. Logically it is important to eat and drink well. Unfortunately, too little is known about exactly which foods cause your hair to become greasy faster. Therefore, try to drink plenty of water, so that the waste products are more easily removed from your body.

Don't use too much conditioner

  1. Conditioner is a handy remedy to make your hair softer and shinier, but it can also make your hair 'heavy' and greasy more quickly. That's why it's important to avoid applying conditioner to the roots of your hair. Make sure to apply it to the tips of your hair, as the chances are that your hair will be the driest there.

Touch your hair as little as possible

  1. A common mistake is to touch your hair too much throughout the day. For example, when your hair is hanging in your face, you will tend to rub your hair off your face several times a day. Unfortunately, the oils on your fingers make your hair greasy faster. Therefore, make sure that your hair is out of your face, so that you are less likely to touch your hair. For example, opt for a bun, tail, braid, ... Moreover, do not brush your hair too much. Brushing too much ensures that the sebaceous glands are stimulated and your hair automatically becomes greasy faster.

Change your pillowcase regularly

  1. If you don't replace your pillowcase enough, it will contain a lot of bacteria after a while. These bacteria absorb your hair, making your hair dirty more quickly.
