When your hair gets greasy just a day or two after washing it, you likely have oily hair. Oil is a natural secretion of the scalp that helps keep hair healthy. Oily hair is the result of excessive oil production.
This can happen for many reasons like heredity, hormonal changes, excessive stress, eating too much oily food and poor hair care. Oily hair are heavy looking and unmanageable hair that clump together, and are more prone to dandruff and itchiness.
As oily hair looks unwashed, lifeless and dirty, it is important to control this condition so you can look your best. To prevent oily hair you need to keep the scalp clean. However, shampooing daily is not always a good idea. Chemicals in some shampoos can further aggravate the problem.
At Naturals, Apple cider vinegar is an effective remedy for oily hair. The acetic acid in it helps balance the pH level of the scalp, which in turn helps control secretion of excess oil and reduces oil buildup on your hair. Plus, it works as a potent hair tonic for soft and shiny hair.
Black tea has an astringent known as tannic acid that helps prevent buildup of excess oil on the scalp by tightening the pores.
