oily hair

Lately my roots have been so oily and it looks like I don't shower daily (and I do). Does anyone know of any shampoos or anything I can use to make it look oily. I am getting annoyed using baby powder in the roots everyday to soak up the oil. I have been through three different shampoos and no difference.

You mentioned baby powder. I was going to suggest dry shampoo which is simliar.

Have you tried a clearifying shampoo?

I just might have to buy some. I have used the Suave kind and it worked great!

Add a tablespoon or so of baking soda into your shampoo once a week or so :) i shower at night, so if I wake up in the morning and my hair looks oily, I'll usually just take a cotton ball and rub some facial toner on my roots

I also found via pinterest adding a couple of drops to Dawn dishsoap will help with oil. Dawn is good for so many things!

Happens, especially in the winter months. Your body produces more oil in the winter... Try dry shampoo.

Maybe you just need a different shampoo and I'd skip conditioning more than once or twice a week.

Have you tried only conditioning your tips or skipping it altogether?
