4 Greasy Hair Solution Products To Try

Contrary to popular belief, you can wash your hair on a daily basis. Those who suffer from oily/greasy hair should opt for this routine.

1. Clear 24/7 Total Care Shampoo

One of the many reasons hair can become greasy or oily feeling is due to the overproduction of sebum. It begins at your scalp. The grease produced in your scalp travels throughout the strands of your hair, leaving it clammy and dirty feeling. The Clear 24/7 Total Care Shampoo is designed for a dry, tight or greasy scalp as it works to nourish the top layer of your scalp. Use this hair care system daily to alleviate the greasy feeling of your scalp as the continuous usage can help prevent grease build-up.

2. Nexxus New York Salon Care THERAPPE Rebalancing Shampoo

Balance is key no matter what hair issue you suffer from. As bad as you may want to scrub every bit of oil out of your greasy hair, hair should always have a healthy balance of moisture. Grease is annoying when there’s an abundance of it present on your strands, however, you still need some sebum in your hair. Sebum can build up over time, so it’s best to find a shampoo that will help keep the happy medium. Meet the Nexxus New York Salon Care THERAPPE Rebalancing Shampoo, a silicone-free formula shampoo that works to rebalance your hair while cleansing and nourishing it. Rinse, lather, and repeat if your hair is super oily.

3. Suave Essentials Daily Clarifying Shampoo

Whether you have oily or greasy hair from an intense workout session or spent a day out in the heat which made you sweat uncontrollably causing your hair to become slippery feeling, this alone would have you wanting to just strip every bit of oil out of your hair. Having greasy hair makes you reach for your shampoo more often than ever, and that’s totally fine, you can shampoo your hair every day. Find a greasy hair solution like the Suave Essentials Daily Clarifying Shampoo which can be used on a daily basis. This shampoo deeply cleanses the hair and helps to remove residue without stripping hair of moisture.

4. Dove Oxygen Moisture Shampoo

This shampoo is specifically great for those fine-haired gals whose greasy hair won’t let them stand a chance at having a light-weight feeling to their hair. Consider using a shampoo that gently cleanses while giving your hair a volume boost like the Dove Oxygen Moisture Shampoo. This is an editor favorite, our very own, Eunice Lucero, uses this as her greasy (and fine) hair solution. According to Eunice, “It cleanses my hair of buildup – product, sweat, sebum, you name it – and gives me a really lightweight, yet moisturized, feeling afterward.”
