It might be really hard to deal with hair that produces excess oil on the scalp, but are dry at the ends. You may feel confused about which products to buy and what to use on your hair. If that is the case, then this post is for you. In today’s post, I will tell you all about which products to use and also some tips and tricks to take care of your tresses.
Tips and Tricks to Deal with Dry Hair and Oily Scalp
1. When you shampoo, try to shampoo only on the scalp to remove excess oil build up as your dry ends won’t need too much of rubbing.
2. When you condition, do the opposite! Focus only on the dry ends to nourish and condition them.
3. When oiling your hair, don’t be afraid to use heavy duty natural oil, but only on your ends.
4. Use a natural bristle brush to help you distribute the oils from the over-saturated area (scalp) to the area in need (dry ends).
5. Limit the use of heating tools on your hair as excess heat will dry out your already weak ends and might make them prone to breakage.
So now, let’s have a look at some of the products that you can use on your combination hair type:
This shampoo is tailor made care to resolve the problems of oily roots and dry lengths. It has combination of 3 refined clays to deeply purify and hydrate your hair. The scalp feels refreshed and cleansed, while the ends look all hydrated and not at all drier.
