Well, just think of it as one of those days when you woke up late and you don’t have the time to shampoo and condition your hair like you usually do for your hair care routine. And, your hair feels extremely dirty and greasy, so what do you do? Here are some easy and pocket-friendly oily hair hacks for you to keep the grease under control and make your tresses look beautiful as ever.
Dry Shampoo You cannot talk about greasy hair hacks without mentioning dry shampoo! Since you don’t have time to wash and condition your hair and then wait for a few hours for them to dry, simply use a dry shampoo. You can now keep a bottle with you whenever and wherever you need it and use it to make your hair look fresh and clean. Spray it all over your hair, including your roots and then run a dryer. You would be amazed at how fresh your hair would look in just a few seconds! Find 10 DIY dry shampoo recipes here.
Baby Powder Before dry shampoo was invented, baby powder was used to hide and manage oily hair. Baby powder is quite an old trick that a lot of girls still swear by on unwashed hair days. Sprinkle a pinch of baby powder along your part lines, rub it in and see the grease vanish instantly. Don’t forget to massage the baby powder well in your hair to get rid of the white residue in your hair. You want to remove the grease and not rock the salt and pepper look on the streets.
Blotting Paper Yes, just like how blotting paper can be used to blot oil from your face, it can also be used to absorb oil from your scalp. Simply part your hair in a few sections and run a blotting paper along your scalp and roots, and you’ll be good to go.
Scalp Scrub Layers on layers of sweat, oil, and product buildup need to be cleansed thoroughly. A good scrub helps to gently exfoliate dead skin cells and oils from your scalp. Use it about once a week and you’ll get healthier and more hydrated hair in no time. There are several brands with a variety of options like mCaffeine that help address an oily scalp.
Perfume Don’t be scared, this is the perfect oily hair hack to help get rid of the grease and make your hair smell amazing at the same time! Just like sanitizers, the alcohol present in the perfume would help you get rid of your greasy hair. Although this trick works really well, avoid using a strong-smelling perfume or if you have skin allergies as it could cause irritation and dry out your hair.
