If you are familiar with the scenario when you wash your hair at night and the next day it looks like you did not wash it since ages, having an oily look, it means you are having a hard time because of the greasy hair. All our skin pores have sebaceous glands, including the scalp. These glands are responsible with maintaining our skin hydrated and this is happening by producing the sebum. Actually, the sebum is not harmful for our hair – it gives that natural shine that makes the hair looking beautiful and healthy. Nevertheless, some glands can produce more sebum than needed, making our hair greasy. The greasy hair problem has various causes, like hormonal imbalance, certain medicine, genetics, unhealthy lifestyle, or improper diet.
Homemade shampoo for greasy hair
Unlike the shampoo you are usually washing your hair with, this homemade shampoo will not produce a lot of foam. This is not a reason to be alarmed, as the foam is not an indication that the product is good, but the result of a substance added by the manufacturer, with no effect on the shampoo. These are the ingredients you will need:
• 100 g organic olive oil soap
• 15 g rosemary
• 15 g sage
• 15 g nettles
• 20 drops lavender oil
Mix the plants and the lavender oil in a jar. Boil two cups of water and add it over the plants. Cover the jar and wait for 45 minutes. Strain the mixture in a clean container. At the end, add the liquid soap over the plants infusion and mix everything well. Use this shampoo each four days and you will get rid of the greasy hair in no time.
Why this homemade shampoo is better than the one in the pharmacy or in the store? Over-the-counter cosmetics have a lot of chemical ingredients, harmful for your hair. So, if you feel like trying all the types of shampoo available on the market and none made your hair look healthy and beautiful, it is time to try your own homemade shampoo against greasy hair.
