5 top tips for getting rid of greasy hair
The fifties were the hey-day of grease as far as hair was concerned. The fashionable craze where you actually added barrel loads of the stuff to your locks was a godsend for any guy who worried that his hair was naturally a more oily and lank than his peers. Now however, greased back hair as a fashion statement really has more or less disappeared. In an era where individual styles are most important you could still get away with it, but it’s unlikely anyone would attempt it willingly.
This leaves quite a problem for all those guys who really do have greasy hair. There is no real prevention – you are either blessed with dry, natural or greasy hair. All have their positives and negatives but greasy hair seems to be the least acceptable in the 21st century. So how can you care for and make the most of your greasy hair?
I came across this cute little set of five rules on Men’s Health which I thought covered all those major touchstones you need to know about, so I thought I would bring them to the audience here at Skalp® blog.
Stopping the flow
Well, the good news is you can slow down how greasy your hair gets. Touching your hair a lot is likely to trigger release of the oil from your sebaceous glands. So keep your hands down! Also, how you wash your hair is important. If the water is too hot it may activate those little glands, so try to get by with lukewarm water.
Using less conditioner on your hair isn’t going to prevent your hair getting more greasy, but it will look better. Conditioner tends to make greasy hair look even greasier.
Check your shampoo
In the same way some shampoos can add to that greasy look. Silicones are often added to shampoos and they will have the effect of making your hair look even more oily and lank. When choosing your shampoo check the ingredients first.
Keep you scalp fresh
Not only does the oil produced by your skin begin to smell once it oxidises, it also attracts odours like a magnet. Keep your scalp fresh by applying a little Dry Shampoo Original which will refresh your hair, eradicate unwanted aromas and absorb grease, too.
Scalp Micro Pigmentation is a wonderful option for people struggling with hair loss or who just want to join the bald fashion trend and look their very best. Trained practitioners apply pigments to the scalp so it appears as if you have a full head of hair – but cut fashionably short.
