Greasy hair is caused by an imbalance in the sebaceous glands responsible for sebum secretion. Sebum is a natural oil that acts as a scalp lubricant protecting the skin. However, the problem occurs when sebum is produced in excess. This imbalance affects one out of four women, leaving hair heavy, sticky and greasy, just one day after slapping.
Grease is, in most cases, a genetic inheritance, but can also be caused by stress, anxiety, unbalanced diet, fatigue, excessive use of cosmetics.
How it works
First of all, use a natural hair shampoo or a neutral pH shampoo. This way you can wash your hair regularly without balancing the pH from the scalp.
How to wash your hair
If you have greasy hair, then use small amounts of shampoo diluted with water. Equally important is not to leave the shampoo on your hair and scalp too long. The faster you wash, the better.
– To prevent the stimulation of sebaceous glands, which cause excess sebum, do not use shampoo for children. They are suitable for children, with the effect of stimulating the production of natural oils, but not of adolescents and adults.
– Do not rub your hair and scalp hard. Easily massage the scalp with circular movements.
– Do not wash with hot water. Use warm water and rinse with cold water.
– Do not rub the hair with the towel, but swab it lightly.
– Do not bring the hair dryer too close to the scalp. Do not hold the dryer at a distance of less than 15 cm from the hair.
So, you washed it because it greased fast, dried it with a foehn, straightened it with an iron, filled it with foam and fixative. And the next day you do it all over again because your hair has already become greasy. See how you can get out of this vicious circle with your kitchen treatments!
One way to slow down the production of sebum is to rinse with apple vinegar after you wash it with shampoo. Mix two tablespoons of vinegar in half a cup of water and rinse your hair, scalping for a few moments. Then rinse again with fresh, warm water.
Tea contains tannic acid, which is an astringent and can slow the production of sebum on the scalp. So rinse your capillary ornament with a cup of tea (black is the best) after shampooing, then rinse again with clean water.
Beer contains alcohol, which dries your skin and hair, but not so much as to disturb you. Wash your hair with beer once a week, until it gets fatter just as fast. In addition, the hair shines beautifully due to beer acid!
Dilute a teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate into half a liter of water, rinse your hair and allow the mixture to work for 20 minutes. Once the time has passed, wash with a delicate cleansing shampoo.
Some extra tips: Greasy hair does not need balm because the oil secreted from the scalp is enough to protect it. Do not comb the hair often, because you are spreading the oil over the length of your hair. Rinse your hair thoroughly after each wash so that there is no shampoo that could scatter your hair.
