My hair is terrible. I have to shampoo my hair EVERY day when I wake up. It's so greasy. Is there anything I can use to stop it?
YouTips4U: Hi, be sure you are using a shampoo for OILY hair because if your shampoo has too many moisturizers and conditioners in it, it is adding to your oiliness. Also, be sure you rinse your shampoo out thoroughly. Any residue left behind can contribute to product buildup and increase sebum production and weigh hair down. This is a common problem in puberty because oil glands become very active. Sometimes it's just a matter of trial and error to find the right product for your hair. Also, when you condition your hair, be sure you only apply conditioner to the hair below your ear lobes; the hair you can gather in a ponytail. Do not condition your scalp. You can use a bit of baby powder massaged into your scalp to soak up excess oil throughout the day. Just apply a small amount in your hands, rub them together and apply to your scalp - not your hair. Try rinsing your scalp with apple cider vinegar. Put a teaspoon of vinegar into a pint of water and use as a finishing rinse. It will help remove any soap residue.
