Our hair can say a great deal about our state of health, but it is also part of our personality and one of the most important physical assets for both men and women. Taking care of it should be not only part of personal hygiene, but also a beauty ritual that is both natural and beneficial. Having oily hair can be both unpleasant and socially awkward, but fortunately there are many easy remedies that can solve this problem.
1) Egg yolk and lemon conditioner. Wash your hair normally and then apply a conditioner made out of lemon juice and egg yolks. What you need to do is mix 2-3 egg yolks with the juice from 1 lemon. Apply this mask on your washed hair and leave it on for 15 minutes. Then wash your hair with lukewarm water and don’t use a hair-dryer if possible. Or you can try this egg and yogurt hair mask for dandruff.
2) Beer miraculous hair recipe. This is a very simple recipe that uses only one ingredient, beer, and that works wonders on oily hair, but also on dandruff and scalp flaking. Boil one cup of beer until you are left with ¼ cup. Let the boiled beer cool down, and then mix it with what is left of your normal shampoo. Use this combo to wash your hair and you will see some amazing results. Your hair will also become more manageable and easy to style.
3 Cloves and lemon mask. This is another simple and effective hair mask for oiliness issues. Take 4 lemons and 4 cloves. Cut the lemons in small pieces and let them boil in one liter of water (33 fl oz) along with the cloves. Boil them until most of the water evaporates, and you obtain a gelatinous substance. Let it cool down and use it as a mask after you have washed your hair, covering your head with a towel. Leave it on for 15 minutes and then rinse your hair with lukewarm water.
4) Yogurt and honey mask. This is a refreshing and nourishing mask for all types of hair, but it is especially recommended for oily hair. Mix one cup of yogurt with one tablespoon of honey, until you obtain a paste. Massage your scalp gently with this paste and leave the mask on for 20 minutes. Then wash your hair with a mild shampoo using lukewarm water. Yogurt contains lots of lactic acid that gets rid of oiliness, while nourishing your skin and increasing collagen production, so this mask can also be used on your face as an anti-aging remedy.
5) Mint tea in your shampoo. If you have some mint leaves this is a very easy remedy for oily hair. Put one handful of mint leaves in 2 glasses of water and let them boil for 20 minutes. Let the liquid cool down and then mix this with your shampoo, then use this every time you wash your hair. Mint leaves have astringent properties that can get rid of excessive oiliness and regulate sebum production.
Besides using all these wonderful remedies, you should also consider using a certified organic shampoo that has a proper pH level. Another secret ingredient that can be used on oily hair is fresh aloe vera. If you have an aloe vera plant at home, you can use its leaves to create a perfect nourishing mask for your hair that can also treat oiliness issues.
