Did you wake up this morning wondering how your hair got so heavy and floppy and greasy looking when you just washed it last night? To many of us, greasy hair is a common problem. No one is immune to this problem, no matter the type of your hair, things like the weather and sweat can make your hair look greasy in a second. That is why we have gathered 5 simple tips for how to avoid greasy hair in a healthy way – whether it’s an emergency fix-up or a long term solution.
1. USE ANTI-DANDRUFF SHAMPOO!
If you find the right shampoo, this can help you a long way. Some shampoos preventing dandruff are specially made for greasy hair and scalp. Thus this is one way to work around the problem, even though you don’t suffer from dandruff.
2. APPLY HAIR TREATMENTS!
Applying a hair treatment weekly can be an important supplement for your everyday hair care routines. Hair treatments can have a stabilising effect on your hair. Aim to find one against greasy hair and scalp, which can help absorb the excess oil in your hair.
3. KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF!
Now this might seem like a strange headline in a blog about hair, but actually, there is something to this! Do you ever catch yourself constantly running your hands through your hair at work or in a meeting? Many of us have a bad habit of messing with our hair, and though you don’t think about it, your hands can be filled with build-up and bacteria. Which you then add to the hair. So keep your hands off as much as possible during the day to avoid greasy hair.
4. USE DRY SHAMPOO!
We can probably all agree to this already: dry-shampoo is a miracle worker! One of the good reasons to use dry shampoo on a greasy-hair day is that it absorbs some of the excess oil. And this makes your hair look less greasy. But this is not the only advantage! Dry shampoo can also give your hair structure and volume, so this really is a win-win on a bad hair day.
5. GO ALL IN ON STYLING!
Another emergency fix for greasy hair is to style your hair in a way where it is unnoticeable. There are many hairstyles that are perfect for covering up the grease, for example braids and twists. Another way to go is to use hair accessories, which can cover some of the hair. Accessories can be really cool and beautiful adding detail to your look, so this is the perfect emergency fix.

One of the biggest trends the past year has been to wash the hair as little as possible. Many believe that this is the best way to avoid greasy hair.

Find a shampoo with natural ingredients, and it won’t have the same negative affect on your hair.
