Oily Scalp Treatment

In this article, we’re going to help you understand how natural oily scalp treatment can solve your oily scalp and hair problems.

Oily hair can be a nuisance. It tends to look dull and lifeless, making you feel uncomfortable in your own skin. While this condition isn’t exactly serious, it can have a dramatic effect on how you feel about yourself. Fortunately, there are ways to treat oily scalp without harsh chemicals or expensive treatments.

How to know if you need oily scalp treatment?

Everyone’s scalp gets oily from time to time. A little oily though is not so bad. In fact, oil helps to protect and maintain your healthy hair. However, if your hair feels greasy or dirty all of the time, it may mean you really have oily hair. 

Oily skinned people are more likely to have oily hair, as the scalp has the same skin type as the face. But how do you know if you have oily hair? Here are some parameters.

  • Your hair appears lifeless
  • Within a day of shampooing, your hair turns oily.
  • You see a lot of hair falling out.

Why is my scalp naturally oily?

As mentioned earlier, the oil in your hair is naturally part of your body’s protection system for your scalp’s fragile hair.

This oil combines with sweat and dirt to protect your scalp. This is quite natural and, in most cases, unavoidable.

What deficiency causes an oily scalp?

Now, some hair types are more prone to oil buildup than others. In less than a 24-hour period, oil can accumulate to a visible level. An oily hair day might be triggered and caused by the following; vigorous activity, overuse of hair products, or even stepping outside in high humidity or heat.

Regardless of the cause, we’re pretty sure oily scalp can be irritating. That’s why we’re now giving you tips on how to naturally treat oily scalp if you’re suffering from it.

First step towards healthy hair is to 'scrub' your scalp

Because healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp, it’s so important to ‘scrub’ the scalp gently. Experts claim that you should avoid over-massaging your scalp with your nails. In fact, applying as little pressure as possible will improve your scalp condition. So, two rounds of (soft, non-abrasive) shampooing are usually sufficient to clean your scalp—the first is solely for the purpose of removing build-up.

Use lemons and honey to rid of grease

Experts believe that applying lemons and honey is a great way to get rid of your oily scalp. They act as an astringent to help control sebum or oil  production and make your hair softer.

How do you go about doing this? Add one to two tablespoons of honey and lemon to the mixture, then stir in a cup of water. Rinse your hair with the mixture, preferably after shampooing. Allow it to sit for a few minutes before rinsing it off with cool water. See what happens if you do it once a week.

Apple cider vinegar can be used in place of shampoo

If you’re out of lemons or honey, or you can’t find any of them in the market for some reason, you can use apple cider vinegar. According to experts, apple cider vinegar has astringent properties that help remove excess oil from the skin. 

Baking soda can help clean out the scale

Baking soda can help you remove oil and product buildup from your scalp. Plus, it’s an excellent dry shampoo replacement. However, if you use it too frequently, the alkaline characteristics might damage your hair cuticles, resulting in dry, frizzy hair.

Takeaway: It's important to tackle the root of oily hair problems.
