Do you find that your hair seems to be getting greasy during the day, quicker than normal? Frustrating isn’t it, when you can’t even go out for After-Work drinks without worrying about your oily roots? Well, before you grab your Batiste or Tresemme Dry Shampoo products, you should consider what could be causing your hair to suddenly be growing greasy so rapidly!
Amazingly, the most common cause isn’t necessarily your diet or stress-levels (although these are both important factors that you should always investigate!). It is in fact, the common household….
Think about all the products that you use on your hair:
- Hair Spray
- Styling Gel/Creams
- Straightening Products
- Hair Serum
- Hair Mousse
And think about everything that your hair comes into contact with during your daily routine:
- Cigarette Smoke
- Vehicle Exhaust fumes
- Air Fresheners
- Etc, etc
It might be hard to believe, but all of these things that cling to your hair, are potentially being transferred to your hair brush, every single time that you brush your locks. Together, these will all transform into “nasties”, bacteria and one great big oil-slick which will then be returned to your head the next time you apply it to your hair, making it…yep, you guessed it…greasy!
What can you do to stop this?
The solution is actually incredibly easy to combat. Simply make sure that you regularly clean your hair brushes and combs, removing everything that could be on them. Using your normal shampoo should be perfect, as you use that to clean your hair anyway, so once or twice a week, make sure to give it a quick wash.
If, however, you still find that your hair still seems to be getting greasy quicker, it is always useful to consider altering your diet, or perhaps even taking a break, if you are feeling particularly stressed.
