Hair Dos and Donts During Quarantine
Do we really need to be writing an article about what you should and shouldn’t be doing to our hair during a global ...
So how do we keep our hair from getting greasy overnight? The following steps will show you how.
We all want hair that shines and glows, but it can be a tad discomforting when our hair becomes too greasy. This is because some of that oil can seep onto your face especially while you sleep at night, causing all sorts of conundrums.
There is nothing unhealthy about having greasy hair. It is incredibly frustrating, but there are things you can do to help prevent as much build up on your scalp.
If you have noticed that your hair is becoming unusually greasy, then it is time to switch to products that are specifically designed for your hair type. Wash your hair with a shampoo for oily roots to help regulate the amount of grease on your scalp and stick to a lightweight conditioner – your hair still needs moisture, so don’t neglect this.
Dry shampoos are great for lifting roots and promoting hair volume. They also absorb the excess sebum concentration of your hair. Dry shampoo is one hair product to definitely have on your shelf.
Simply spray a generous amount of dry shampoo into your hair before you sleep and overnight it will absorb the oils. Just remember to brush it out thoroughly in the morning and don’t use this every night.
Let’s be frank: conditioners are great, but they can weigh your hair down. Did you know that hair conditioners are supposed to be massaged onto hair ends and not onto the scalp? So instead of doing the regular routine conditioner method, try using a detangling spray that smoothens your hair without the heaviness associated with conditioners.
Sleeping with your hair up can be one of the greatest lifesaving tools you can deploy in your war against greasy hair. This is because oil from the roots are unable to get through to the rest of the strands when your hair is tied up.
To sleep with your hair up, simply tie hair into a super loose knot (so that you do not damage your edges).
Your pillowcase fabric plays a vital role in how greasy your hair gets especially at night. Cotton pillowcases absorb more grime, bacteria, dead skin cells, and sweat more than fabric such as silk and satin. These elements can contribute to the increased greasiness of your hair.
Endeavor to sleep on silk and ensure that you wash your pillowcases regularly.Shop the Luna
