Hair Care Tip: Remedy for very oily hair

submitted by kimberely, kamloops, canada

Tip description / details:
I used to have very oily, straight hair (I'm older now my hair is much dryer) but one trick I used to use at night was to rub a little dish soap into the roots of my hair and sleep on it. In the morning, I would shower, shampoo as usual, and condition just the ends. this left my hair with a super springy, bouncy look - totally not oily. I wouldn't do it more than once a week, or suggest it to anyone who did not have very oily hair. The dish soap is very drying, use just a little.

plain dish soap

How to prepare:
straight out of the bottle

How to use:
Apply with fingers to the roots of your hair only. Dish soap is very drying and works best to add a bounce and dry the roots.

Results (observed by submitter):
The results are sort of like an inexpensive root lifter. Your oily hair, normally oily and straight, won't be. Instead it will be bouncy and springy. Again, this is a suggestion for only those with super oily straight hair.

Costs involved:
