Natural Home Remedies To Get Rid Of Oily Hair And Scalp

1. Wash Your Hair After Wearing A Hat or Helmet.

Hats and helmets can spread oils and trap heat. The best way to stop your hair from being oily is to wash immediately you get rid of the hat. Another way to do this is using head accessories so you don't have to wash often.

2. Stay Away From Hair Straighteners.

Hey girls, we know you want to look beautiful and can't stand your hair looking all messy. However, if you want to straighten it or make it look extraordinary, do not use a hair straightener if you have an oily scalp.

Straighteners make your hair look greasy more than if you were to allow it dry naturally. Also avoid strengthening irons and hairy dryers.

Go for other methods that do not generate heat or make your hair greasy. Save your hair and its beautiful texture from being damaged.

3. Avoid Brushing Your Hair When It's Oily.

It can be tempting to brush your hair when you feel that thick grease in your hair. Doing this promotes yhe spread of oil on the scalp and in the hair.

4. Clean Your Hairbrush.

Washing your brush will not only make your hair oil free but can also help you wash out all chemicals from previously used hair products and dead skin.

Unclean brush can spread dirt on your scalp which can make your hair look dirty and greasy although you washed it not long ago.

5. Don't Play With Your Hair.

People who are fond of playing with their hair find out that their hair looks greasier after playing with it.

When you touch your hair often, you're transferring oil and dirt from your hands onto the hair and also stimulating the oil glands and encouraging them to produce more oil

6. Rinse Your Hair With Tea.

Tea contains tannic acid that removes excess oil from the scalp and hair. This formula has worked for many who were dealing with oily scalp and hair. All you need is a tea bag and water.

Put a cup of water on the stove and when it gets hot, turn off the stove and dip your bag of tea into it. Allow it to cool down and rinse your hair with it. 

Make sure you wash your hair thoroughly, then wait for 30minutes and rinse with normal water before using shampoo.

7. Rinse With Lemon.

Lemon contains vitamin C which is required for hair growth. Lemon has also been used for treating oily hair and giving it a shiny look. This is what you need to do.

Cut open lemons into two equal sizes and squeeze out the juice into a cup. Add a reasonable amount of water to your lemon but make sure you have enough lemon juice present in the solution. Now rinse your hair with the lemon solution thoroughly. 

Wait for 30minutes or more before washing with shampoo. 

8. Aloe Vera Treatment.

Aloe vera has numerous benefits for both skin and hair. If you have stretch marks aloe vera will do a great job. Have you thought about the reason why many cosmetic companies employ the use of aloe vera in their production? Well, simply because it has a healing property and its suitable for both hair and skin.

Get enough gel from aloe vera plant and add 1 or 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. Mix the ingredients properly and apply this to the root and tip of your hair and scalp. 

Wait for 30 minutes and wash off with shampoo. Do this 3 times a week for great results. 

9. Use Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV).

ACV which is an acronym for Apple Cider Vinegar has long been used for many health issues. Arguably, ACV with the mother (this is AVC that hasn’t been diluted, i.e. it contains all nutrient and vitamins) has been said to resolve hair loss among men. It is also a natural way to treat both oily scalp and hair

ACV also adds a shiny look to hair and improves hair texture. If you're looking for a way to stop oily hair use 1 full cup of water, add a half cup of ACV and wash your hair with this solution. 

Leave it in your hair for as long as you want. Vinegar is neutral and will not harm your hair.

I have personally tried washing my hair with vinegar and the outcome was amazing. I prefer using warm water as compared to cold water.
