During the summer season, our hair often becomes greasier due to factors like heat, humidity, and excess oil production. However, washing your hair every other day can strip away natural oils and lead to dryness. Fear not! With the right tips and tools, you can maintain fresh, volumized hair that shines without the need for daily washing. In this article, we will delve into effective strategies and introduce FHI Heat's hair tools to help you combat greasy hair and achieve enviable shine.
Tip #1: Dry Shampoo - The Savior of Third-Day Hair:
Dry shampoo is a game-changer when it comes to managing greasy hair between washes. It works by absorbing excess oil and adding volume to your roots. Simply spray it onto your roots, massage it in, and brush it through to distribute the product evenly. The result will be revived hair that looks and feels cleaner, without stripping away natural oils.
Tip #2: The Power of a Greasy Hair Blowout:
Surprisingly, giving your hair a blowout while it's greasy can work wonders in making it appear fresh and voluminous. When you blow-dry your hair, the heat helps to evaporate excess oil and lift your roots. OurInnovator Pro Power Speed Dryer is an excellent tool for achieving this. With its advanced technology, this dryer dries your hair quickly while reducing frizz and damage. It features multiple heat and speed settings, allowing you to customize the blowout according to your hair's needs. For added volume at the roots, pair the blowout with FHI Heat'sRoot Lift Spray. This high-altitude spray lifts your hair from the roots, creating natural-looking volume and reducing the appearance of greasiness.
Tip #3: Opt for Loose Hairstyles:
During hot summer days, tight hairstyles can trap sweat and oil, making your hair appear greasier. Instead, choose loose hairstyles that allow airflow to your scalp. A messy bun, loose braids, or a tousled ponytail can keep your hair away from your face while maintaining a fresh, non-greasy look. Atourmaline-infused ceramic curler will help you achieve that volume, hold, and style to your loose looks without too much heat. If you want to keep a straight style, teasing can help!
Tip #4: Maintain a Healthy Scalp:
A healthy scalp is essential for maintaining non-greasy, shiny hair. To keep your scalp in optimal condition, it's important to establish a regular cleansing and exfoliating routine. Use a gentle clarifying shampoo once a week to remove any buildup and excess oil. Additionally, incorporate scalp exfoliation into your routine using a specialized scrub or a soft brush to remove dead skin cells and promote circulation.
Tip #5: Limit Touching and Use Smart Brushing
Frequent touching and brushing of your hair can transfer oil from your hands and scalp to the strands, making them appear greasier. Avoid running your fingers through your hair unnecessarily, and limit brushing to when it's necessary. When brushing, use a brush like theUNbrush to distribute oils from the roots to the ends, keeping your hair nourished and shiny without overstimulating oil production.
Tip #6: Eat a Balanced Diet and Stay Hydrated:
Your diet plays a crucial role in the health of your hair. Consuming a balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants promotes healthy hair growth and helps regulate oil production. Include foods like leafy greens, lean proteins, nuts, and seeds in your meals to provide your hair with the necessary nutrients. Additionally, staying hydrated by drinking an adequate amount of water throughout the day helps flush out toxins and keeps your scalp and hair hydrated from within.
