Oily hair can be really annoying. Here are 7 natural tips to help you feel better:
Hot water only stimulates the production of sebum – so rinse your shampoo thoroughly with lukewarm water.
The right shampoo
Avoid aggressive anti-fat shampoos – these dry out the scalp and make the hair oil even faster. Better: Nettle shampoo from the pharmacy. Nettle has a calming effect on the scalp and slows down the production of sebum.
Conditioner with mint tea
Put a couple of peppermint tea bags in boiling water, steep, and let cool. After washing your hair, massage the mint tea into your hair, do not rinse.
Conditioner with coltsfoot flowers
Add a handful of coltsfoot flowers (from the pharmacy) to half a liter of boiling water and wait for the water to turn dark and cool. Massage into hair after washing, do not rinse.
Hair treatment with healing clay
You should treat your hair to a hair treatment once or twice a week: Mix around 10 tablespoons of healing earth (health food store or pharmacy) with 200 milliliters of water and apply the paste to the scalp. Rinse well after about ten to twenty minutes.
The wrong diet also stimulates the production of sebum – and hair greases more quickly. Avoid sugar and alcohol, and make sure you eat alkaline vegetables (such as spinach, broccoli, and fennel). Too much salt also makes the hair greasy – so hands-off chips and co.
Avoid blow-drying foam, volume mousse, and the like – because styling products weigh down the hair and make a greasy mane look even lankier.
