Habits that make hair oily
If your hair tends to be oily there are a series of habits that you should avoid at all costs. You know how much it bothers you to feel that your hair is dirty, so take note of the things you may be doing wrong without even realizing it.
There are habits we pick up over time which can make the problem of an oily scalp even worse. We reveal what they are below:
. Washing your hair with hot water.
Using very hot water can cause the scalp to produce more oils. This phenomenon is caused because high temperatures dehydrate the skin causing it to produce even more. This is why it’s always best to rinse your hair with lukewarm or cold water.
. Apply conditioner to the roots
Mistake! If your hair is oily then don’t use conditioner or any other hydrating product directly on the root. We recommend you leave a couple of inches distance.
. Brushing too much
10-20 brush strokes should be enough. You don’t need to brush your hair 100 times a day before going to bed. Doing this will only distribute the hair’s oils all over your mane. Not only that but tugging can increase oil production and make the problem worse.
. Going to sleep with wet hair
This habit doesn’t just increase the production of scalp oils, it also contributes to the production of fungi, such as seborrheic dermatitis, better known as dandruff.
. Touching your hair a lot
If you are used to touching your hair a lot, don’t. Dirt and oils built up on our hands can end up on our hair, leaving it even oilier.
. Not using the right product
Listen to your hair to find out what it needs. Use a shampoo and mask that will help you to regulate oil production and cleanse your scalp such as Specific Oily Hair Shampoo. It can be your closest ally for showing off a beautiful and shiny mane!
