8 tips against greasy hair
Sometimes you suddenly have a period of faster fat hair. You will not be happy about that. But what is the cause and more importantly what do you do against it? You read it below!
Your sebaceous glands produce sebum to keep your skin healthy and protect against infections and bacteria. Sometimes your sebaceous glands produce more sebum than normal, at that moment an oily scalp develops and therefore also fatty hair. The (possible) causes of fat hair:
- – You eat a lot of fast food.
- – You have a stressful period.
- – Menstruate.
- – You inherited it.
- – The temperature is rising.
WHAT DO YOU DO AGAINST GREASY HAIR?
1. Do not wash your hair too often.
Limit the washing of your hair to two or three times a week. If you wash your hair often, you remove natural fats such as sebum. This means your scalp will make sebum again and this will make your hair fat faster.
2. Shower with a lower temperature
A high temperature also increases the sebum production of your hair.
3. Do not massage your head
This stimulates the blood circulation and a good blood circulation stimulates sebum production.
4. Rinse shampoo and conditioner well
If you do not rinse your hair well, leftover shampoo and conditioner can make your hair look shinier and therefore look fatter.
5. Only use conditioner in your hair tips
Your hair needs the most care in the points. This way you do not have to massage your scalp.
6. Change your pillowcase regularly
Fats will end up on your pillowcase while you sleep, and your hair will come into contact with them every night. It is therefore important to regularly change your pillowcases.
7. Do not brush your hair too often
You also massage your hair even if you get a brush through. In addition, you spread the oils through your hair with a brush.
8. Do not go through your hair too often with your hands
Your hands are dirty and/or greasy and therefore your hair can become fat faster.
