Typical Hair Regimen For Oily Hair
Hair Treatment: Do an apple cider vinegar rinse after every wash. Use a Pre-Shampoo treatment for Oily Hair. Use it only on the scalp and wash thoroughly after.
Shampoo: Shampoo hair twice per week. Use a shampoo that can strip hair of oils effectively without damaging the hair. One suggestion is to add baking soda to regular organic shampoo or add 3 drops of tea tree oil to an organic shampoo. Or make your own shampoo with Castile soap and essential oils. Make sure your shampoo contains no sodium lauryl sulphate, parabens or other harsh chemicals.
Condition: Use a conditioner that does not have any excess oils. The Deep Conditioner Recipe For Oily Hair is not oily but will leave hair feeling refreshed and silky. Only use conditioner on the hair itself not on the scalp. Wash conditioner from hair thoroughly.
Deep Condition: Once per month or once every six weeks. Use the Deep Conditioner Recipe for Oily Hair, store any excess you may have in the fridge and use it as a facial if your face is oily too.
Hair Styles: Wear your hair up and out of the way as much as possible. Oily hair attracts dirt more than normal hair. Until the problem of oiliness is addressed, protective styles are best. Oily hair looks really good in curly hair styles, straighter hairstyles tend to look wet and stringy.
Products: Herbal Luxuries Tea Tree Healthy Hair & Scalp Shampoo and Conditioner (Healthy stimulating rich herbal shampoo with tea tree oil, vitamins and nutrients for healthy hair and scalp. Invigorating but gentle. Deep cleans without stripping the hair. Helps control dandruff and oily hair.)
Note, that the recommendation is for an organic product without the harsh chemicals that are usually found in shampoos. Find an organic shampoo of your choice or make your own.
Hair Moisturizer: Not recommended if hair is severely oily.
Oils: tea tree oil, jojoba oil, rosemary oil and hazelnut oil. These oils are not ‘oily’ nor will they coat the hair.
Must Have Products For Oily Hair: Organic Shampoo, Lemon Juice, Tea Tree Oil, Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda.
Hair Relaxer: Oily hair does better with relaxers than dry hair. Choose a good quality relaxer. I have no suggestions at the moment.
Products on the Black List for Oily Hair: Any product that contains oils that will coat the hair shaft such as castor oil and olive oil, any shampoo that contains harsh chemicals, and any hair products that contains petroleum/petrolatum or mineral oil, synthetic hair dyes.
