Believe it or not, there are different types of shampoos for oily hair. This is mainly because every hair is different and although in general you may share the characteristic of oily hair, every hair is different and has specific needs.
Some oily hair is fine, some is coarse, some is brittle and some is damaged by chemicals or heat, which is why you should select a shampoo for oily hair that not only helps control seborrhoeic production, but also improves or restores other conditions of your hair.
This type of hair is quite a challenge as it has two problems that complement each other making it very difficult to treat. On the one hand, we have that fine hair is very delicate, it breaks easily at the slightest tug and tends to tangle a lot, if we add to that the characteristics of greasy hair, it is easy to stick and tangle much more due to the excess of sebum it produces.
To treat this type of hair you should first wash it with cold or lukewarm water, then apply the shampoo very delicately, as if it were a baby's hair, and finally add the conditioner, from the middle to the ends, completely avoiding the hair roots.
In our catalogue we have the perfect shampoo for this type of hair: Biolage Anti-Fat Normalizing. Its formula with mint leaves a pleasant smell and sensation, while removing excess sebum, without weighing it down and taking care of fine strands.
According to experts, this type of hair is a conditioned rather than a genetic problem, typical of city dwellers. This is due to pollution and excess pollution in the environment, which increasingly makes the hair feel heavy, greasy and totally dehydrated.
Generally, the big mistake when it comes to treating these types of hair is a poor choice of shampoo. Some people choose a shampoo for dry or curly hair, which will add more weight to the hair, without solving the problem of dry ends. Others choose specific formulations for greasy hair, making it duller and less likely to last clean for a shorter time.
The best solution is to choose a neutral and light shampoo, with natural sulphates among its ingredients. At Perfumes Club we have what is considered the best shampoo for this type of hair, Fructis Pure Fresh coconut water, by Garnier. This formula will not only get rid of excess sebum and accumulated dirt from the scalp, but it will also provide you with a gentle but powerful moisturiser that will give you renewed and purified hair, from roots to ends.
If you have oily, curly hair, you're bound to feel like you've got a bird's nest on your head, as well as experiencing constant stress from fear of premature hair loss. But don't worry, because the secret to amazing curls is easier than you think.
First of all, you should avoid touching your curls or scalp all the time, even when washing it. A few strokes of your hands and a good shampoo will be more than enough. Otherwise you could be stimulating overproduction of sebum. So that you don't mistreat your hair too much when styling, untangle it starting with the ends and then the rest of the hair. This will prevent your curly hair from breaking.
Finally, you should let it dry naturally, without the help of straighteners or dryers, because if you don't give it time to dry naturally, the overproduction of sebum will start to act immediately, to compensate for the lack of hydration in your hair.
A good shampoo for this type of hair is Garnier Fructis Hydra Curls. This formula will help you keep sebum production regulated, while deeply moisturising your entire hair fibre, making it stronger and giving it strength and definition.
This type of hair is like the Bonnie and Clyde of manes. They hijack and hold under threat all the hair's potential and beauty. Dandruff is a fungus, which basically lives and proliferates in a greasy environment, without real and efficient hydration, which we don't give it, for fear that dandruff will get worse.
The real way to end this problem is to opt for a shampoo that provides targeted moisturisation, with just enough power to get rid of dandruff and excess sebum in one fell swoop.
One of the best shampoos in our catalogue for oily and dandruff-prone hair is Specifique Bain Anti-Pelliculaire by Kérastase. It acts on dry and oily dandruff by eliminating it and preventing relapses for 8 weeks, thanks to its exfoliating action. Its formula is ultra respectful of the scalp, keeping it moisturised, non-irritated and healthy. It also has a gentle and effective cleansing action, leaving hair perfectly clean and free of residues from other products.
Having frizzy, greasy hair is one of those things that no one wants, because on the one hand it seems like you could solve it just by having a shampoo with good cleansing power, but you soon realise that it only makes it frizzier.
The least aggressive way to deal with this type of hair is to wash it with cold water and gentle downward strokes, and if possible, gently detangle it with a fine comb while in the shower. Afterwards, it is good to use a special styling cream for frizzy hair with heat protection in case we want to dry it with a hairdryer or straightener.
One of the best shampoos for this type of hair is the BK WASH Frizz Shampoo by I.C.O.N. This is not a conventional shampoo, as it is a vegan and organic alternative to keratin treatments as its formula does not contain any animal protein. Ideal for all hair types, even coloured hair, this shampoo adds shine and vitality to the hair, makes it easier to comb (both wet and dry) and reduces frizz and drying time.
For several years now, there has been talk about reducing the carbon footprint that humans leave on the planet. With the advance in technology, laboratories and cosmetology houses have developed their own solid shampoo formulas to contribute to the care of the planet.
What is a solid shampoo? Basically a shampoo in a solid bar form, just like a traditional soap. The main advantage of this type of shampoo, apart from being quite ecological, is that you can use it up to 100 times before finishing it, that is to say, there are several bottles of shampoo condensed in a single bar. A great saving, right?
One of the best solid shampoos for oily hair that we can offer at Perfumes Club is the Naturbrush Solid Shampoo for oily hair. This shampoo bar is formulated with natural and organic ingredients such as sage, rosemary and green clay. All these ingredients serve to control sebum production, absorb oil and strengthen the hair follicle. Contains no plastics, parabens or sulphates.
Having greasy hair is not synonymous with having dirty or unkempt hair, the secret is in the products you use and the care you give it.
