I've seriously tried everything. - April 13th 2010, 10:53 PM

I don't know why, but lately my hair has been super oily.
It's a pain in the ass because I'll wash it at night, and by two o'clock the next day, it's already starting to get oily again.
I've tried lemon or lime juice, whichever it is.
I've tried baking soda. I've tried new shampoos.
Seriously, I don't even remember everything I've tried.
I have no idea. What to do.
Does anyone else have this problem? What do you do?



I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons.
And maybe we’ll never know most of them.
But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from,
we can still choose where we go from there.
We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.

I do yeah. I have to wash it every day else it looks oily.

I find washing it the night before is diasterous, it gets greasy overnight. Try washing it in the morning

Also, it helps a lot if I don't use conditioner every time, but every second or third time. Sometimes then I'll use a deep moisturising conditioner every week to keep it in good conditioner.

If it gets greasey during the day I have this thing called dry shampoo. I spray it into my hair and then shake it out and it gets rid of the grease temporarily.

Straightening my hair also makes it a lot greasier.

I have dry shampoo, it makes my hair feel funny though. And I don't have much time to take showers in the morning :/

Try using vinegar, my mom uses it and her hair is like never greasy.

Re: I've seriously tried everything. - April 23rd 2010, 01:13 PM

I have this problem too. My hair is either too greasy or too dry but, for the most part, it greases up in half a day. I don't have the time to shower in the morning either, and from what I've heard, dry shampoos don't do their job very well. I'll try it out one day.

I find that letting your hair dry naturally when you wash it, reduces the rate at which it becomes greasy. Try not to sleep with your hair damp or wet. I, unfortunately, have done this enough times to know that your hair dries in chunks when you do this and since all the oils and moisture are locked within these chunks, your hair is super oily in the morning. Blow-drying or straightening your hair makes it greasier too.

I am back to washing my hair every night for now, but on those irritatingly busy days, I use baby powder - any powder would do, really. I was a little skeptical about using it but I have found that it works (at least temporarily). If you pat some onto the greasy patches (I usually just do my fringe) and comb or 'dust' it through, it kinda 'mattifies' the grease and oils in your hair. I'm not sure what happens if you use baby powder in accordance with dry shampoo. I'll test it out someday and get back to you on that.

By the way, I do a vinegar rinse whenever I wash my hair. I have noticed that it does dry out my hair after I've washed it, but because I wash my hair at night, my hair is back to normal in the morning (it greases up by midday). So I was thinking that you could prepare a vinegar spray of some sort to spritz into your hair when it's getting greasy? I'm always making these strange hair potions and concoctions so I'll have a play around with that too. Keep in mind that vinegar has a strong smell so you'll probably want to disguise it with something less severe

Okay, I just did some research and someone's mentioned that tea tree oil "helps absorb excess oil from your roots" and that you should use it with your shampoo. We use it on pimples/scars all the time and it's a natural substance so there's nothing wrong with trying that out too I guess.

Hope this helps (if only a little). I'm still battling my oily-hair days.

Good luck!

Personally, I don't really get this problem because I have thick curly hair which doesn't get greesy, just frizzy lol.
But my sister has straight hair which does occassionally get slightly greesy and she swears by dry shampoo, it's pretty cheap, you can buy it for less than £2, and it works.
So maybe give dry shampoo a try throughout the day?

Tea tree is a good suggestion. I don't have this problem, however, one of my friends does. Though, he never could afford tea tree shampoos and conditioners, since they cost more than conventional. But tea tree shampoo is good for alot of things, including lice treatment from what I've heard.

Everyone has time to wash their hair in the morning. Get up 30 minutes earlier When it gets me down/bugs me (ie, all the time) I don't care about getting up earlier because I just feel so rubbish if I don't. It seems like it's bugging you a lot, and if washing your hair in the morning makes a difference, I don't think you'll find getting up that bit earlier a problem because having your hair nice will be more important to you than lying in a bit longer. Or at least thats how it is for me.
