  • Oily hair is a tough one. Take some powder (baby powder or body powder) and put a lil in your roots area and kinda brush it through. It will help soak up the oil and keep your hair looking fresh!

  • I too have always heard of using baby powder.

  • This may sound crazy but try washing LESS often. You are likely washing so much that your natural oils are being stripped away and your body is over producing now to make up for it. What shampoo and conditioner are you using? They might not be a good match for your hair type..

  • Use a dandruff shampoo; works great on oily hair.

  • Keep the conditioner below your crown. My hair gets greasy if I do not wash everyday. If I get conditioner on the top of my head it makes it worse. Just an idea if that is what you are doing.
