You knows that there are different factors of whether your hair will look greasy, it might be the products you’re using or your hair type. Why do you have greasy hair? Let's find out through the article below.
Not Brushing Your Hair
The reasons we brush our hair is to make our locks looks nice and also to distribute oil evenly. If you have curly hair or just aren’t a fan of brushing your hair, this may cause greasy hair. Brush your hair every now and again and also use dry shampoo.
Wearing A Ponytail
It is a cute and easy way to keep cool but it may be doing more harm than good. This low-maintenance hairstyle can actually make your hair look more greasy. When you put your hair in a ponytail it can cause your hair’s oil to accumulate and get trapped under the ponytail holder at the roots. When you matte your hair down on the scalp it can also cause grease to pool on your scalp causing a greasier look. Leave your hair down more often to keep it from looking greasy.
If you have issues with a dry scalp and dandruff, this might be another cause of greasy hair. If you have too much oil from your scalp, it can promote inflammation and cause dandruff. Dandruff can trap oil and cause greasy hair. Use hair products that are good for your scalp and have ingredients to control scalp flaking and itching.
Turns out that over-washing your hair may actually lead to your hair creating too much oil. When you wash your hair, your body will react by creating oil to replace the lost oils. If you over-shampoo your scalp will over produce oil leaving you with greasy hair. If you have greasy hair, check out our guide to see if you’re washing your hair right.
