Here are a few.
1 – Wash your hair as little as possible
We know it is very difficult when our hair looks like a deep fryer. But be aware that the more you wash them, the more they will be attacked and will therefore produce sebum to protect the scalp. In order not to enter this infernal circle, wash your hair only once or twice a week. By spacing out the shampoos well, your scalp will regulate itself and you can say bye bye to oily hair.
Between two washes, as needed use a dry shampoo. To make it yourself, simply mix cornstarch or rice flour with white clay. Apply with a brush and then brush the hair. Be careful not to overdo it, as it damages the scalp.
2 – don’t brush your hair too often
This stimulates the scalp which produces even more sebum. a small brush stroke per day to detangle the hair helps distribute the sebum over the lengths and nourish them. To you long hair like Rapunzel.
3 – go for natural ingredients
The coconut blossom or pomegranate are ideal for rebalancing the pH of the scalp. This will cleanse the fatty roots in a natural way. Baking soda has the same effect. All you need to do is add a teaspoon to your shampoo.
We also find green clay which, in the form of a mask to apply for about twenty minutes, will absorb sebum and toxins to allow the scalp to breathe. Nettle, oat milk or apple cider vinegar are also very good ingredients to add to your care to limit oily hair. In a sprayer, pour 1 liter of water and 2 to 3 tablespoons of cider vinegar for an express care.
Finally, rhassoul, a volcanic clay, comes absorb impurities from the leather hairy thanks to its mineral salts. It does not contain any surfactant and respects the hydraolipidic film of the scalp. In addition, it restores volume to the hair. Simply mix your powder in the water until you get a paste. Apply to the roots, massage and rinse.

By limiting foods that are too fatty or too sweet, your hair will be much better. For example, we opt for dishes based on fresh cooked fruits and vegetables steamed. We do not skimp on foods rich in copper, manganese and vitamin A, B1, B2 and B6. Whole grains, dried fruits, wheat germ and legumes are also very good allies. The beauty of the hair also goes from the inside.

2 to 3 drops of lavender essential oil, lemon, orange, sage or grapefruit in your mask or shampoo will regulate sebum production. A little of aloe vera gel for dry hair then a shampoo with Aleppo soap will also purify the scalp and restore balance.
