How to Deal with an Oily Scalp and Dry Ends

We’ve all been there, whether it’s dealing with super dry ends, or an oily scalp, or both! Having a good hair day shouldn’t be once in a blue moon. Learn the ultimate hair hacks to combat your hair and get the perfect hair day everyday! 

Here are 10 tricks to getting the right hair balance:

1. Don’t Wash Your Hair Everyday

By washing your hair everyday you are stripping your hair of its natural oils, and can make your hair ends dry, and your roots more oily. So if you can try to wash your hair at most every other day. 

2. Avoid Conditioner on Your Roots

Conditioner on your roots is a big no-no. Conditioning your roots, makes your strands oily and flat, taking away from the natural process and makes your hair heavier.

3. Make Sure to Shampoo for More Than 1 Min to Activate

Be sure you are washing your hair thoroughly. You want to wash out all the dirt and dust build-up and get your hair clean so wash for at least 1 minute into your scalp and strands. 

4. Use Natural Oils

When in doubt, use the oils you have right at home like olive oil, and coconut oil to give you extra conditioning and shine. Apply to your tips pre-shower and then rinse out.

5. Trim Your Hair Regularly 

In order to keep your hair healthy and growing, trim regularly to get rid of your dead, and dry ends!

6. Eat Protein Rich Foods 

Protein is essential for hair health! Eating foods that are rich in protein will make your hair softer and healthier.

7. Wash Your Hair With Lukewarm Water 

Hot water can actually strip your essential oils, leaving it feeling drier and duller, so try not to use hot water when you wash your hair. 

8. Rinse Out Products Well

Wash out your hair thoroughly. Leaving in shampoo or conditioner can cause your hair to be oily at the roots and make it harder to produce their natural oils.

9. Use Heat Protecting Products

Before blow-drying or hair styling, apply a heat protecting oil to your roots. This will protect your hair from burning and drying out. 

10. Use Dry Shampoo

When your hair is feeling oily, apply dry shampoo to your roots and it will feel fresh as new. This will help you avoid washing your hair everyday and the oils will learn to balance themselves out.
