How to Get Rid of Greasy Hair Naturally
Wash your hair every day to strip excess oils and grease. Use a clarifying shampoo without added minerals for best results. Test out different shampoos to find one that doesn't leave you with greasy, weighed down hair. Visit a natural remedies store to find a natural, chemical free shampoo.
Skip the conditioner on most days. Conditioner adds oil to hair, which can cause excess grease. Condition your hair only once or twice a week for best results. Consider purchasing a conditioner made specifically for greasy hair.
Sprinkle powder into your scalp to absorb excess grease. Talcum powder and baby powder soak up the grease from your scalp, and help your hair appear clean and dry. Use powder if you are out and about, unable to shower, or have excess grease immediately after showering.
Choose your hair care products carefully. Pay attention to the ingredients listed on your hair care products. Avoid products that add volume, or are enhanced with minerals as they weigh down hair and add excess grease. Consider using herbal products, or products with citrus ingredients to strip the excess oil.
Rinse hair with juice from two lemons and one quart of water to remove excess grease and shampoo buildup. The acidity of the lime juice will help thoroughly cleanse your scalp. Repeat this process once a week, or every two weeks as needed.
Rinse hair with apple cider vinegar after shampooing. Mix 1/2 cup of boiling water with two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and one bag of mint tea. Remove the tea bag after it cools, and rinse hair with the mixture.
