To fix greasy hair, rinse your hair with cool water, use apple cider vinegar or lemon juice, and powder your hair. Use a clarifying shampoo a couple of times a month to strip the hair of residue and oil buildup.
- Rinse your hair with cool water
Hot water can stimulate the oil glands and contribute to greasy hair. Rinse your hair with cool water instead. Use a high-quality shampoo and conditioner every other day, and avoid washing your hair daily, as this can cause the oil glands to overproduce. Use a clarifying shampoo twice a month to strip residue and oil buildup from the hair.
- Use apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
The natural astringent properties of vinegar and lemon juice help remove residue and excess oil. Combine 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with 1 cup of water, and massage the mixture into your hair. Let it sit for up to 10 minutes, then rinse with cool water. To make a lemon juice rinse, squeeze the juice of two lemons into a cup of water, and apply to your hair. Leave the juice in your hair for a few minutes, then rinse thoroughly.
- Powder your hair
If your hair looks greasy, dust powder onto the hair line and roots with a cosmetic brush. Use baby powder or cornstarch for light-colored hair and cocoa powder for dark hair.
