I’ve been struggling with an oily scalp and frizzy strands for as long as I can remember. With the number of experiments and home remedies I’ve done, I realised that not all of them work for everyone. That’s why we thought it’d be a good idea to share some easy ways in which you can deal with an oily scalp. These are some of the tips and products I swear by, and you should, too!
One of the major problems with a greasy scalp is that you often have to deal with flat hair. The oil weighs your hair down. The easiest way of dealing with that is by using a dry shampoo. It helps absorb excess oil and adds life and volume to your dull strands.

Ladies, if there’s one thing that treats most skin and hair woes, it’s apple cider vinegar. It’s something that’s easily available in your kitchen and doesn’t cost much, either. Mix one part ACV with two parts water and rinse your hair with this concoction (be very sure you’ve diluted it). Not only does it reduce product buildup, but also adds a shine to your mane.

Yes, it might sound contradictory to what you may have been hearing, but washing your hair may make your hair drier, sending your sebaceous glands into overdrive. This in itself, will lead to oily hair. Make sure you use a mild shampoo that absorbs excess oil without stripping it off of necessary moisture.
Use the L'Oreal Professionnel Volumetry Salicylic Acid+ Hydra Light Shampoo (Rs 575) for fab locks!
Bid goodbye to bad hair days with chic hairstyles that you can make even when your hair is oily. These hairstyles actually look fab on greasy locks. Go with french braids and the good old messy top knots. Don’t let a bad hair day make you look any less stunning!
Sometimes not distributing the oil evenly leads to product build-up on your scalp and frizzy strands. We suggest you use a bristle brush in order to distribute the oils evenly throughout your mane.
