Shampoo less often
Although we’ve all been told that shampoo is the key to removing oil buildup, it turns out that shampooing every day actually isn’t good for an oily scalp. We know it’s counterintuitive, but a great way to improve the look of naturally oily hair is to shampoo less often. This is because shampoo often irritates your scalp and strips it of natural oils, causing your scalp to produce more sebum in response. As a result, the more your shampoo, the more your scalp is going to compensate by ramping up oil. Try reducing the number of times you shampoo to just two or three times per week—at a moderate temperature—for incredible results. Also make sure you’re using the best shampoo for your hair type.
Use the right brush
You may not realize it, but your hairbrush could easily be one of the main culprits behind your greasy hair. It’s very easy for dust and hair products like oil or mousse to build up on the bristles, and very few people take the time to thoroughly clean or replace their brushes, which leaves them pretty disgusting. That’s why if you have oily hair, you’re better off using a widely spaced, nylon bristle brush rather than one with densely packed bristles, which will only smooth and distribute your scalp’s natural oils, Dove Hair curl expert Cynthia Alvarez told the Huffington Post.
