The Ideal Hair Care Routine For Oily Scalp

Looking for ways to fix your oily scalp? We’ve got you. But don’t skip the hair oil completely. Oily hair also needs care and moisture but needs to be done right so that the scalp’s natural oils remain balanced. 

So here are 5 basic essentials that you can follow if you have an oily scalp-

Oil:

You can add a few drops of tea tree oil to lavender oil, rosemary oil or lemon oil and then let it stay on your hair for an hour. Never go for oils that have heavy consistency as they have silicones which lead to even more production of oil in the scalp. Choose essential oils instead. 

Cleanse:

For those with an oily scalp, the ideal frequency is to wash the hair every other day. Remember you’re just balancing the oiliness so it’s not important to wash your hair every day. Washing every day might lead your scalp to dry which will make your scalp produce even more oil. Just remember to look for shampoos that are specially made for oily scalp. 

Condition:

Yes, you need this step despite having oily scalp as the conditioner works for the strands and strengthens them. The right way is to apply the conditioner only to the length of the hair and skip the scalp completely. 

Treatment:

An oily scalp also needs moisture and that comes through the usage of treatments in the hair once in every 15 days. The treatment helps to bring a balance in the natural oils of the scalp while also making the tresses softer and smoother. 

Dry shampoo:

There are times when you do not have the time for a full rinse and that’s when dry shampoo is your saviour! It comes in different forms including powder, spray and sheets. Pick your favourite dry shampoo, take some quantity into your palms and massage into your scalp to get rid of oiliness when you are in a rush.
