Reader Vivian emailed me to ask me about oily hair, and I was at a bit of a loss as to how to respond because I don’t have oily hair. So, I thought we could all chip in with some bits of advice Here’s her query:
I have really really oily hair. Currently using schwarzkopf deep cleansing shampoo but my hair still oily as ever. Really have no idea what to do with it. Do u have any suggestion?
Well, here’s what I suggested to Vivian to do, based on what little I know about managing oily hair.
Wash your hair everyday
We live in the tropics where its hot and humid and the weather can exacerbate a oily hair condition. I’d suggest washing your hair everyday with a shampoo meant for oily hair. Make sure you get the shampoo right onto your scalp to properly clean it because sometimes we sweat and the sebum can make hair look greasy and lank. Also, always make sure that you rinse out shampoo properly so there’s no build up. I wash my hair everyday but thats from choice and personal comfort
