The Best Hair Care Routine For Oily Hair

The best hair care routine for oily hair

It is safe to say that everyone has different needs when it comes to their hair. That is why two people can use the exact same products and get totally different results. As a result, everyone will not have the same hair care routine.  I often get many questions from women regarding what they should do to their hair or what type of shampoo to use and that has inspired me to share my recommendation for the best hair care routine for oily hair.  Listed below is my recommended hair care routine for oily hair.

Hair Care Regimen For Oily Hair

Step 1.  Shampoo every 4-7 days-  Oily hair is just that, very oily.  Depending on how oily your hair gets you should shampoo every week using a clarifying shampoo.  I recommend the by L. Jones Extreme Clean Clarifying Shampoo because it removes all dirt, oil, and product residue from the hair AND it is sulfate and paraben free. Shampoo twice with the clarifying shampoo and rinse thoroughly.  **IMPORTANT** Do NOT use a moisturizing shampoo on your hair.  This will only add more even more moisturizers/oil into your hair.  

Step 2.  Apply a light conditioner and finger through or comb all the way through to ensure each strand is covered. I recommend the by L. Jones Replenishing Conditioner because it is lightweight.  Do NOT use a moisturizing conditioner as this will only add moisture/oil to your hair.  A daily conditioner is lighter and will not cause your hair to get very oily too quickly like a moisturizing conditioner would.  Rinse the conditioner thoroughly as if any is left on your hair it can leave an unwanted residue.  If your hair is extremely oily, you can skip the cream conditioner altogether and just opt for a spray leave in conditioner (like this one).  

Step 3.  Dry your hair by sitting under a dryer or blow drying.  Any kind of set will require the use of a hood dryer.  Otherwise blow drying is fine.  If you blow dry your hair, I suggest using a thermal protector before doing so as this will help protect your hair from any damage that may occur from the heat of styling tools.  Don't worry, these will not add any oil to your hair.  They are perfectly fine to use on oily hair. Some leave-in conditioners (like this one) have heat protectant inside so using something extra is not necessary.

Step 4.  Style and finish.  Style your hair as usual without applying any oils, serums, creams, etc.  Having oily hair means that your hair produces enough oil on its own without the use of anything extra.  Using these products will make you have to shampoo your hair again that much sooner.
