As the temperatures in your city reach new heights, it’s not only your skin that’s feeling the scorching heat, it’s your hair crying for help too. We don’t like oily greasy hair as much as we don’t like hopping in for a head wash every second day. You woke up on the wrong side of the bed, are running extremely late for work and your hair looks like you haven’t washed it in five days. Unattractive? Hell yes! So think ahead and use these home remedies to keep your hair looking shiny and grease free this season.
Home Remedies for Oily and Greasy Hair
1. When Life Gives You Lemons
Rinse your hair with it. Yes, we know it doesn’t sound as exciting as having it after your tequila shots, but trust us, this works. Use a juice of a lemon or two tablespoons of distilled vinegar mixed with a cup of water. After shampooing, rinse your hair with this mixture, ending it with a final rinse using tepid water. This home remedy reduces greasiness.
2. Beer Rinse
We know you love your cold beers and would like nothing better than to kick back and pop a bottle open, but a beer rinse also keeps the greasiness at bay. Any kind of alcohol gives a drying effect to the hair, the higher the alcohol content, the better. Use half a cup of beer (yes, we can hear you whining already) and mix it with a couple of cups of water. Rinse your hair finally with this mixture, which also gives it a nice shine.
3. Lemon Juice And Egg Yolk Remedy
Everyone likes their eggs cooked and on a plate rather than raw and in their hair, but eggs are saviours in every way. Egg yolks remove excess greasiness and leave the hair smooth and shiny. Beat two egg yolks with a few drops of lemon juice. Apply the mixture on wet hair for 5-7 minutes. We can hear you complaining about the stench already, so pinch your nose shut every now and then. Rinse your hair thoroughly after this, making sure you don’t have any egg remnants left behind.
4. Baking Soda
Baking soda does belong in your cake batter, but it does wonders for your greasy scalp too when used in a diluted form. In a litre of water, mix two or three tablespoons of baking soda. Apply this mixture and leave on your hair for 20 minutes. Shampoo as you normally always do after this step. Your hair won’t get as greasy or oily as it normally does.
