Having thick long beautiful hair but it being limp and lifeless can be such a spoilsport. As with the skin being dry, normal or oily, your hair too has its own type. For people with oily hair, the sebaceous glands under the scalp surface secrete excess oil making it greasy. Proper cleansing and toning routines coupled with using the right kind of shampoo and conditioner, eating a healthy diet like fresh fruits and greens avoiding fatty foods can help treat oily hair condition.

Here are some remedies for oily hair -

  • Regularly cleanse your hair with a shampoo that is ideal for oily hair, choose the right shampoo from the wide range of available in the stores, and look for herbal based shampoos like trifala, amla.
