6. Use Weightless Hair Styling Products
Product residue can make greasy hair greasier – but that doesn't mean you have to quit your styling routine. Instead, simply swap out rich, heavy products in favour of weightless yet hard-working stylers. Try these hair product picks:
For protection while heat styling, try: EIMI Thermal Image, a water-like mist that enhances shine while shielding locks from heat up to 220°C.
For wave and curl definition, try: NutriCurls Milky Waves Spray, a hydrating mist for locks that can be applied to clean, damp hair then topped up on dry hair whenever moisture is needed.
For soothing the scalp, try: Elements Calming Hair Serum, which can be massaged into a dry, sensitive scalp without leaving a greasy residue. Focus it directly into the roots to offer comfort to parched skin.
For thicker, fuller-looking hair, try: INVIGO Volume Boost Bodifying Foam, which gives fine hair the lush volume and touchably soft texture it deserves. It's pleasingly light, adding guts and hold without weight.
For teasing and texture, try: EIMI Ocean Spritz, a salt spray that gives locks a chunky, beachy texture while protecting against dehydration and UV damage.
For treating dry ends, try: EIMI Oil Spritz. It's possible for locks to be both greasy and dry at once, so if the tips of strands feel parched, boost hydration levels with this light lotion. Focus it just on the ends, using a small amount at first and building up as needed.
Meanwhile, we recommend you hold off on using dry shampoo on a dry or inflamed scalp, as it could cause extra irritation. Steer away from it if you have dandruff with an oily scalp too. Although it can help to soak up excessive oil production, it may sit on the surface of the skin and clog hair follicles.
7. Make Sure You Brush Hair Through Daily
Are you brushing your hair frequently enough? Gently glide your brush from root to tip at least twice per day to help sweep away any flakes of dandruff and redistribute oils through the hair. Sebum overproduction can cause an excess build-up of oils in some areas, but regular combing and brushing will work to balance things out – even just a little.
