Oily hair is quite common, but not everyone knows how to deal with it the right way. In this article, we're going to talk about some of the habits you should follow to keep your oily hair healthy and easy to tame. So, let's dive in!

1. Develop A Hair Wash Schedule

This is more complex than you think. Oily hair can lead to a vicious cycle – you wash your hair frequently to get rid of the excess oil, and the oil glands on the scalp keep producing more oil to cover up for the washed oil. And this cycle goes.

But this isn't an ideal scenario. You should be aware that more washing will only lead to more oil production. So wash your hair frequently but not every day. Try multiple hair wash schedules to understand how your hair looks and feels, and stick to what works best for you.

2. Use Dry Shampoo

On days when you're running late to work but your greasy hair screams for a hair wash, dry shampoo comes to your rescue. A quick spray is all you need to oomph up your locks once again. It minimizes the oily appearance of your hair and freshens it up quickly.

But a word of caution – while this is an easy way to fix your greasy hair in-between hair washes, using too much dry shampoo isn't good for your hair. It leads to excess product buildup in the scalp, making it more greasy.

3. Take Care of Your Scalp

Poor scalp health can exacerbate your oily hair condition. You should start taking care of your scalp so that the oil production remains under control.

If your hair feels itchy and there's dandruff, use the BiOSys Revitalizing Hair Tonic to get rid of this problem. This nourishing hair care product is loaded with natural ingredients like ginseng, coltsfoot, thyme, and rosemary, and it has been formulated to improve follicular health and strengthen your hair.

4. Use A Clarifying Shampoo

Clarifying shampoo works the best for oily hair, as it helps get rid of all the dirt, sweat, and oil buildup from the scalp, and allows it to breathe freely. Choose your shampoo carefully, as you don't want to strip off the natural oils from the scalp.

The BiOSys Scalp Care Shampoo is an excellent choice, as it's gentle and effective at the same time. It eliminates buildup, soothes itchiness, improves microcirculation, and actively promotes new hair growth, without drying out your hair.

5. Condition with Caution

Conditioning is a tricky affair for oily hair. But you cannot skip this step completely, as the ends of your hair need nourishment.

When you are applying the conditioner, make sure you don't put it anywhere near the scalp. Apply it to only the lengths of your
hair. This will keep your scalp free from any product build-up or extra grease, and the ends will stay hydrated and healthy. And remember, leave-in conditioners are a big no-no.

6. Ditch the Styling Tools

If you use heat styling tools frequently, it can make your oily hair even worse. While tools can certainly help you manage frizz and give it a polished look, they make your scalp more greasy.

The heat of the styling tools helps the oil on your scalp melt, and it spreads all across your scalp and hair faster. This is noticeable when you straighten your hair with a hair straightener, and your hair feels heavy and greasy after a while.

7. Rinse Thoroughly

This may sound like a no-brainer, but hear us out. This is important.

After you're done with shampoo and conditioner, make sure you wash your hair thoroughly. There shouldn't be any trace of product left on your scalp, otherwise, the entire purpose of the hair wash will go down the drain.

These are some simple but impactful habits you should live by if you have oily hair. With a little extra care and attention, you can achieve gorgeous and healthy hair – all you need is the amazing hair care range of BiOSys by your side.
