Help! anyone know what to do about oily hair?

my hair has always been oily. I was it in the morning and by afternoon my bangs look oily and like my hair hasn't been washed in a week. It is embarrassing. Is there a solution to keeping it looking clean all day? thanks

  • i learned this from Tabitha Coffeey, the famous hair stylist. those oil wipes that you use for your face you can use in your hair as well, or you can use baby powder too

  • I think Treseme makes some kind of spray you can use too.

  • There are a few issues here. I'm sure you are shampooing everday because it looks dirty if you don't.
    *shampooing strips all the oils from your hair, sending the falsesignal to the sebaceous glands to secrete more because you are running out!
    * Make sure you are using a balancing or neutralising shampoo. It's the perfect ratio of moisture to cleanliness. Biolage has a great one and Paul Mitchell tea tree shampoo and conditioner is phenominal for this issue.
    * Use a dry shampoo during the day. Avoid baby powder, it tends to build up, causing more oil to secrete. It's too heavy. It feels good for a minute.
    Be patient, and consistent and you will see great results, as do my customers!

  • What does that have to do with prestige? In my career I have seen far more talented platform artists, and educators.
