Greasy hair tends to be like most other insecurities: It always seems worse on yourself than how others see it. Oily hair is like oily skin. Sometimes that’s just how it is. And other times it’s that way because of the habits we keep. Of course, hair-type also plays a role in how oily strands will appear. Ladies with fine-hair know the slick hair struggle too well.
If you’re feeling like your hair is just too oily regardless, there are certain things you can do to keep the oil production under control.

Here are eight steps you can take toward having balanced hair:

1. Choose Your Products Wisely
Make sure you do not use too many mousses and gels that can cause buildup. Also try to avoid products that make hair “shiny” as these can make oily-prone hair just look greasier. If you can, just cut out styling products altogether.

2. Wash Less Often
An obvious one, yes, but dry shampoo will not only suck up oil from your roots making your hair appear less greasy and the moment, but it will also allow you to spend more time between washes which will make your hair less greasy and the long run too.

3. Use Dry Shampoo

4. Only Condition The Ends
Applying conditioner all over can totally weigh hair down, causing oily roots. Instead, just apply conditioner from mid-shaft to ends.

5.Balance Your Brushing
Not enough brushing keeps natural oils from being distributed, and they just build up on the scalp. Over-brushing, on the other hand, can stimulate oil production. So just make sure to find a healthy balance for your hair.

6. Use Baby Powder
If you prefer to go the old-fashioned route, opt for baby powder instead of dry shampoo. It will work the same way if you sprinkle some on your roots and rub it in. If you have dark hair and the baby powder causes too much of a white cast, just brush some bronzer onto your roots instead or mix the baby powder with cocoa.

7. Avoid Straightening Hair
The more closely your hair lies to your head, the more oil it comes in contact with. Curled hair (whether natural or not) gives a little more volume at the roots which keeps hair from becoming too oily too quickly.

8. Try Not To Touch Your Hair
That means with your hands or your face. Because your fingertips and face both produce oil that can easily be transferred to your hair, avoid playing with it or using styles that allow too much to touch your face.
