How To Avoid Oily Scalp When Using Conditioner
- Oily scalp is caused by many factors and one is conditioning the scalp!
- It’s easy to assume that frequent hair washing is the best way to get rid of the oil. As logical as that might seem, you’re probably making your hair greasier.
- Conditioner was never meant to be used on the scalp. The scalp does not need conditioning due to the natural oils of the scalp called sebum.
- A tip to remember is always shampoo the scalp and condition the lengths only. Conditioning with silicone free conditioners such as the SNI Miracle Growth Conditioner and the SNI Thicken And Repair Conditioner for at least 3 minutes for best results.
- The hair furthest from the scalp is always the driest and should be conditioned on a regular.
- Conditioning the scalp can cause oily scalp issues and should be avoided.
- Studies show in shower conditioning is not enough. Thus at SNI, we have also formulated a range of Miracle Hair Mists which can be used on a daily basis as and when required to keep hair nourished, strong and conditioned.
- Oily hair may also be due to a poor rinse job after applying products during the hair-washing process. You may want to try conditioning first and shampooing second to remove extra residue or just do away with your traditional conditioner and try The Miracle Hair Mist as a leave-in conditioning spray.
- Sometimes, an oily scalp is the result of a temporary hormonal change that comes with puberty, thyroid complications, pregnancy and other issues. If your oily scalp is a sudden onset, speak to your GP.
Remember, changing your hair/scalp conditions is not a change that can happen overnight. So be patient and think about the long term results. 90 days is a good indicator to see if a hair care routine is working for you.
