  • When I was going through adolescence, my hair was super oily. The only thing that really cleaned it well was Prell. Or Palmolive dish soap.

  • Would it still be oily by the end of the day?

  • I don't think so but thatt was a long time ago! I was 12-13 and now am 32. LOL! But the Prell really seemed to strip it down. At the time, I would only have to do one wash with Prell, while I would have to do 2 washes with Suave or Herbal Essences or some other shampoo.

  • You can sprinkle baby powder to soak up oil...and when you use conditioner after shampooing just run it through ends not roots...

  • I always use dove Shampoo and I have oily hair.... don't use conditioner and if you really must use it just use on your ends not your scalp.

  • Never use a moisturizing shampoo, stop using conditioner while you are having this issue and maybe try a dry spray shampoo to get you through. It's a fluctuation in your hormones.
