Our scalp is naturally meant to secrete oil to keep itself nourished, and hydrated. This helps in maintaining the health of the scalp, and provides the necessary nourishment to the roots, all naturally! But anything in excess harms! Due to various underlying factors including skin conditions and diet, the sebaceous glands (oil-secreting glands) end up producing excessive oil (sebum). This in turn clogs the hair follicles causing damage to the roots, and deeply damaging the scalp in severe conditions.
Talcum powder is one of the daily essentials that we have at our home. This fine and fragrant powder can be used for more than making our face and body feel fresh. One of the most common oily hair hacks is putting some talcum powder on your oily scalp. It can help your hair look less greasy. The talcum powder absorbs excess oil from the scalp. It also loosens up the strands that have stuck together due to all the oil on them that make your hair look flat. Dust off the excess powder and you are set. Moreover, it will also leave a mild scent behind. Such a spell! Isn’t it?
Hairdryers most often come out of our shelves only on the day of hair wash, to dry the wet hair. But, did you ever think this cute little gun can be used to dry off excess oil from your hair too? Well, yes! On days your scalp and hair are way too oily, and you have absolutely no time to go for a wash, you can let some hot air from the dryer onto your hair. It will not only dry the excess oil away but also make your hair look voluminous, instantly!
Tissue hair hacks
There will be days when your scalp becomes oily, to the extent, that the oil starts spreading down to your forehead and behind the ears, making your skin look greasy and unclean. Dabbing the tissue onto your scalp and on your hair helps in absorbing the surface oil, rescuing you from the grease, for the time being.
