In this article, I have some homemade shampoo recipes that are perfect for oily and greasy hair. Usually, oily hair is caused by either using too much shampoo or using a shampoo that’s too harsh for your scalp. However, other causes can be eating an unbalanced diet or eating food products that you are allergic to. In addition, excess oil production from the scalp can be caused by stress and can even occur due to certain weather conditions.
Whatever the cause, oily hair can make styling a real chore! Not only that, but as anyone who has suffered from this condition will be able to tell you, having oily hair can be a massive confidence drain. Greasy hair oftentimes has a “dirty” look, to it which can cause major embarrassment and leave you feeling far less than your best.
If you’re suffering from oily, greasy hair, make sure that you give these natural shampoos a try!
