How to get rid of Greasyness.
Post By Makoto. 12/10/11, 11:29 am

Hey, I have a question for the girls here.

I'm looking for some help.
I naturally have very fine and very soft hair. While it's comfortable, and I don't mind it, it gets greasy and disgusting very, very quickly.
I shampoo and condition it every single day, and after about 16-18 hours it gets greasy and I can't handle it.

I've tried playing around with amounts of shampoo and conditioner when I shower, but nothing changes.
I always thought it had something to do with exercise, but I found out that the cleanest pillow and bed, and a good nights sleep still mess with it and get it greasy.

Is this normal for a boy, and is there anything I can do to prevent it getting like this, other than washing and conditioning every day?

Thank you.

possibly you shouldn't be shampooing and conditioning it ever day?
i had a massive problem with greasyness when I was younger and I was shampooing/conditioning every day, I changed to shampoo/conditioning every 2nd or 3rd day (still wash your hair with water everyday!)
you could also try just using shampoo? shampoo essentially strips off the oil in your hair, and conditioner is putting it back on.
possibly i'm just full of BS haha

I agree with Cactiberry, to get out of the habit of washing your hair every day, just don't wash it as much and it'll go back to normal! (I think?) If you strip too much oil out of your scalp, it might produce more oil to make up for it.

Also maybe you could try using dry shampoo on days between washes? You can buy it cans from pharmacies and hairdressers, and spray it into your hair when it starts getting greasy? I've never used it but apparently it's very good *shrug*.

Hope that helps xD.

Thank you!

There's no girls in my family, apart from my Mum, so is there anything I can do to my hair to keep it good condition?
I wouldn't know, cause I'm a yucky male.

Like brushing and whatever.

you can't really overbrush and if you have greasy hair it sometimes helps a little.
um, for generally keeping it healthy, get it trimmed regularly and try and shower every day if you can. Get a showercap! you might find that if you change your hair-washing habits, your hair will become rough and coarser. I find that if that happens, using this as schedule helps kept it looking nice -
day 1 - shampoo and condition hair (use a comb to evenly spread conditioner on your hair, you often miss the tips of your hair with your fingers)
day 2 - shower with showercap
day 3 - normal shower
rinse and repeat!

also another greasy hair tip - shampoo all your hair, and then condition the tips of your hair (the last inch or two) only.

I'll have to try these things, thank you.

I'll try the combing thing next time I'm shower!
Thanks for all the help, you two.

they recommend brushing your hair twice a day to help even out the oil distribution or something? my hairdressers tells me these things , i don't really listen.

But yes you can overwash your hair usually every 2-3 depending on your hair type is fine for washing as it lets some of the natural oil back into your hair. school holidays are a great time to start this as you don't have to worry about school appearance xD
Also if you can try using a hairdresser quality shampoo and conditioner these don't strip the hair of all their natural oils like supermarket ones tend to do, they are more expensive but you only use a tiny bit so can actually last you longer ^.^ its always help to ask your hairdresser how much you should be using, i always find i use too much conditioner which is bad apparently
regular trims and treatments (and diet)]also help keep you hair in good condition~

hope this kinda helps?

Sounds weird but trying putting baking soda in it...
Mix a tablespoon of baking soda in a cup of warm water, mix it, then massage it into your scalp. You can do that instead of using shampoo/conditioner. Or you can just add a bit of baking soda to your shampoo and it should have a similar effect.

I am allergic to most shampoos and they make my hair go all frizzilla anyway, so I use this and honey (mix 1tb of honey into warm cup of water) in my hair instead.

The other thing to try (because you weren't overloaded with suggestions already) is a gentler shampoo. A lot of guys shampoos are actually really harsh for some reason (it's more manly??? Idek), so try a sensitive shampoo or even a gender neutral/ladies one.

Personally I'd recommend the Dove Daily Moisture shampoo & conditioner (both admin and I use it and it doesn't smell girly or anything like the floral brands do), but different shampoos work better for different people.

^ A really good shampoo/conditioner brand is Nature's fresh.
It doesn't have any animal fat and is completely natural... I personally have the same sorta greasy-ness problem and when i use Nature's fresh it just makes my hair nice and soft~
Without any animal fats, you hair can take to it alot easier... It could just be that be that your hair is really sensitive to them ^^
You can find it in Supermarkets for like. $5.40? a bottle and it doesnt have any fragrance either.

I have the same problem although not quite as bad as yours. Try using conidtioner only on the ends of your hair or not at all, I find too much of it weighs my hair down.

I solved that problem by not using conditioner at all

I have oily hair too, and I try and avoid brushing or combing my scalp too much. Also making sure you rinse all the conditioner out helps too (I just apply it to the ends of my hair).
