Are you one of those people who wonder why hair gets greasy overnight? Isn't it about time you stopped this process and had a slightly easier morning? This article will look into the factors surrounding why hair gets greasy overnight and point out a few solutions!
When Hair Gets Greasy Overnight
It's a pretty hard problem to pin down this one - mainly because there are numerous reasons for hair becoming greasy ( especially overnight! ). A lot of women tend to suffer from this even though they claim they hardly ever use hair products!
When hair gets greasy overnight it's usually down to the individual ( I'm not having a go! ). For example a lot of experts advise not showering every day but this can have a really backwards effect on some people's hair.
Another question to ask yourself is how often do you use shampoo and conditioner? A lot of women insist on using it every day whilst others only do it two to three times a day. Were you aware that frequently shampooing and conditioning your hair can really damage it in some cases.
So here's the lowdown on what to do if you need to condition and your hair gets greasy overnight. Try your best to use as little conditioner as possible when in the shower. Also when you are actually using the conditioner don't get to close to the roots or the scalp of your hair - only condition the top half of your hair ( or the bottom half - depends which way you are looking at it! ).
How often do you actually look at the shampoos and conditioners you are buying ( and I mean closely? ). If a top of the range shampoo or conditioner is on sale the week you go shopping don't buy it for the sake of having something expensive! check to see if you are using a 'add nourishment' product. If you are then what are you doing? Your hair gets greasy overnight - you don't need any more nourishment!
Brushing And Touching
Sometimes brushing your hair can make it appear a lot less greasy and a lot cleaner - but try not to overdo it with the brushing routine! A lot of women also find that by simply not touching their hair so often they end up with a healthier finish. A friend of mine who's hair gets greasy overnight noticed that when she was stressed or had a really long day her hair would always appear more greasy. She then realized that during these stressful situations she was continually brushing the hair off her face and running her hands through it!
There is always the option of dry shampoo if your hair gets greasy overnight but it is a little on the expensive side. You can get cheaper versions but these tend to be not really that effective ( in my humble opinion ).
If you cannot afford this dry shampoo why not try to use a little baby powder on the really oily spots of your head? Simply brush it in smoothly and it will improve the look of your hair and make you look a little 'cleaner' overall!
