Why do you get oily hair? How do you prevent hair from getting oily?
Many people may have the same question as to why the hair often becomes oily. Especially in summer, the problem becomes much worse. The secretion of oil from the scalp is normal, but it will be a problem if there is too much oil. If you wear hair extensions (micro loop hair extensions or pre bonded hair extensions and so on), you need to pay more attention to this issue, as oil may cause the hair extensions to become dry easily. What cause of greasy hair? Below we have listed the main causes so you can help prevent your hair from getting greasy.
1. Washing too often causes more secretion of oil
Your scalp will secrete oil if you don’t wash hair for a long period of time. On the other hand, the scalp will secrete oil if we wash head too often. The sebum secretes oil according to the feedback it receives. If you wash head and clean the oil too often, the sebum receives the information that there is a ‘lack of oil’, causing it to secrete more oil. As a result, your hair will become greasy if you wash hair too often.
Resolution: You are better washing your hair once every 2 days, making sure you clean your head thoroughly every time. Only wash the scalp at the first time, then wash and clean the scalp, then proceed to wash the hair.
2. Using the wrong Shampoo.
Some shampoos which focus on moisturising may not provide the deep clean that the hair needs. If you keep using only moisturising shampoo for a long time, it may not be good for your hair health.
Resolution: Most shampoo products contain silicon. Silicon is a sealant often add in a variety of hair care products. The problem with silicon is that it can prevent other hair care products from cleaning your hair, which may cause greasy hair and hair loss. If you have greasy hair, you are better choosing a shampoo without silicone or shampoo made of plant extract which can control oil secretion.
3. Using too many chemical products.
Using hair styling products such as hair gel and hairspray isolate your hair strands from the air. This can make your hair more oily.
Resolution: If you already suffer from greasy hair, you should limit the use of chemical products. If you have to use it, please wash your hair thoroughly before go to bed.
