[toc]You wash your hair in the morning and look perfect to step out of your house. But in a few hours, your hair doesn’t look good as before; one of the reasons could be an oily scalp. Oil glands secrete oil to naturally moisturize your scalp in order to keep dandruff, dryness and breakage away but anything in excess isn’t pleasant. Oiliness of the scalp could be because of hereditary, hormonal complications or the natural properties of your hair.
Multinational companies dealing with hair care products will promise many things to ease the trouble of oiliness in your scalp but one can never tell if their products work or not. So it is best to stick to home remedies to tackle the excess oil in your scalp. Here are some of the home based tips
Home Remedies For Oily Scalp
You can use a mild shampoo on daily basis to keep your hair oil and grease free. Opt for an anti-oil shampoo if you feel that might work for you. Don’t over use it because some chemicals might even lead to damaging your hair.
Make Your Own Shampoo
Take a bowl and add about one cup of shampoo, one tablespoon lemon juice and one tablespoon of aloe gel. You could store this in your refrigerator for at least a week and this is a good remedy for treating the extra oil in your scalp at home itself. Natural ingredients won’t even damage your hair.
Combing or brushing your hair a lot will lead to the scalp oil being distributed all over the shaft and ends of your hair. So avoid a lot of brushing your hair.
Rinse Your Hair Well
After washing your hair, rinse thoroughly well. This keeps any particulate matter and residue out which brings out excess secretions. If your hair is exposed to a lot of pollution it is essential to rinse it properly.
Make a mixture of a few drops of lemon juice and 2 yolks of egg. Apply it on wet hair and wash it after 5 to 10 minutes. This keeps the nourishment of your scalp intact and fights off the excess oil that is accumulated.
Baby powder works best when you don’t have time to wash your hair in the morning. Just sprinkle some powder on your hair and brush your hair before you leave home. Powder absorbs excess oil from your hair and keeps your hair smelling wonderful throughout the day.
Mixture For A Final Rinse
Lemon juice, tea, apple cider vinegar and diluted beer can be used as a final rinse to remove excess oil accumulation in your scalp. Remember to rinse with only water later. The acidic properties of all the ingredients will prevent oiliness of the hair and scalp. These few home based remedies are guaranteed to give your hair the fresh and bouncy look along with being really pocket friendly.
Natural ways of fighting away oil will not cause any damage to your hair that the chemicals in expensive products do. Stick to these few natural remedies to keep your hair oil free in the best way.
