How to treat greasy hair

Oily and greasy hair can be a significant problem, especially since it is an unsightly condition that can often put one in a difficult position. So many people, even for short periods of their lives, have been faced with this disorder that is as common as it is embarrassing.
Oily hair does not make hair routines easy leading to frequent washing, difficulty in managing styling, skin discomfort, and often even bad odor.
However, there is no need to despair! Let’s see together what they depend on and the things you can do or not do to best deal with oily, greasy hair.

Oily and greasy hair: sebum issue

Thanks to the sebaceous glands, sebum is produced, which is used to exert a protective action against external aggressions. Under special conditions, however, the glands may increase the amount of sebum produced, creating excess production. The causes of excessive sebum production are to be sought within the body and also depend on a genetic predisposition. Thus, the main causes can be: hormonal imbalances, improper diet, stress and nervous factors, autointoxication, medications, digestive disorders or the use of the wrong products.

What to do to treat oily and greasy hair

Despite what we often hear, oily hair can be washed frequently. In reality, frequent washing has the function of removing the sebum present on the scalp, which is followed by the quick release of that already present in the follicle.
However, it is necessary to carefully choose the right products for anti-fat treatments, preferring a mild shampoo that can perform a balancing action on the scalp. It is also important to accompany an astringent mask, usually clay-based, with a scrubbing and purifying effect that provides relief from the uncomfortable feeling of dirt and grease. However, it is necessary before applying treatments for oily hair to thoroughly clean and sanitize the scalp with specific preparations.

What not to do to treat oily and greasy hair

Avoid using overly harsh shampoos and nonspecific products. It is also inadvisable to use the hair dryer too closely: keep it at a proper distance. Better not to apply conditioners and masks for dry and damaged hair on the scalp, but be careful to dose them only on the lengths to avoid weighing down the scalp. Better to massage the scalp only during shampoo application. Finally, more attention should be paid to rinsing products and proper nutrition.
