After frizz, greasy hair is one of our biggest beauty gripes, especially during the summer months! All kinds of things can make your tresses more oily, from product residue to using the wrong shampoo. So, what can you do to make your mane less greasy?
1/ Battle buildup
Buildup from products, natural oils and general unidentified stuff that lands in your hair throughout the day can weigh it down and make it look dirty. To prevent this from happening, take care to apply only as much product as you need, and make sure you're using the right ones for your hair type!
Brushing your hair with a natural bristle brush can help to distribute natural oils throughout the lengths of your hair, and thus stop them from becoming too concentrated on your scalp.
2/ Use dry shampoo properly
When using a dry shampoo like Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray, make sure you hold the can at least six inches away, and don't over-apply it as this can result in buildup (see above). Leave the formula on your roots for at least five minutes before brushing it out. This gives it enough time to absorb excess oil effectively, leaving you with refreshed, lifted strands.
3/ Move your part
Switch up the location of your part to elevate lackluster roots and refresh second day strands after applying dry shampoo. If you usually wear it in the middle, try moving it out to one side, or if you tend to stick to the left, try relocating it to the right. It's a simple yet effective trick that only takes two minutes!
When you're trying to cut back on shampoo, co-washing (skipping the shampoo and using only conditioner) rinses away any dirt your hair picks up without stripping away natural oils.
5/ Don't touch!
Last, but not least, make sure you keep your hands off your tresses! Touching your hair transfers oils from your fingertips to your strands, which can make it look and feel way greasier than you'd like.
