There is nothing more troublesome than having to wash your hair every day to get rid of daily grease. But you know, that’s only a quick fix to the problem. If you want to get rid of this problem for good, you need to get to the root of it, and solve it from there. If you are perplexed about why you suffer from the greasy hair affliction, scroll on, we might be able to tell you what could be the cause of your greasy hair:
Touching your hair often: Just like with constantly touching your face, playing with your hair transfers oil from your fingers to your strands. And that is the perfect recipe for greasy hair. Basically, stay away from your hair, and get others to stay away from it too.
Over-washing: You must be wondering how washing can make your hair greasy, considering you wash it to get rid of the grease. The thing is, its quite a vicious cycle. Daily shampooing strips your scalp off its natural oils, which in turn results in your scalp producing more oils to replace what you washed away. Cut back on the washing to 2/3 times a week; your hair will thank you.
Over-brushing: Brushing your hair is like a lure to the dark side; do it too much, and you’re ruining your hair. Sure, your hair looks glossy and fabulous after a thorough brush-through, but the stimulated oil production might make your hair look greasy in the long run. If you’re one of those who has an obsessive brushing habit, stick to detangling the ends.
Your hairbrush is dirty: There is no bigger culprit in the crime of greasy hair, than a hairbrush. A dirty, clogged hairbrush, harbouring a build-up of dust and stale styling products is never going to give you grease-free hair. Clean it up!
Your hairbrush is full of hair: A hairbrush full of hair is just as bad as a dirty hairbrush. By brushing your hair with a hairbrush like this one, you’re only transferring the grease off the old strands, along with the dust and dirt, back to to your freshly combed hair. Now why would you want to do that?
Applying the wrong products: There is nothing more important to proper haircare than the right products. Every girl has a different hair type than the others, and you got to find a combination of products that works out for you. Otherwise, you’re just asking for trouble with grease.
Product build-up: Using too many styling products results in a major clog up of the scalp. Especially if you’re someone who loves her dry shampoo. Though dry shampoos are quick and easy, your hair can get greasy and heavy and in desperate need of a detox. So make sure you get that one.
