You're Not Shampooing Enough

The oil, dead skin cells and debris builds up on the scalp can weigh down the hair. This is one of the reason why shampooing is a must. If you do not shampoo well, then there are chances for this.


You're Shampooing Too Frequently

This is the opposite of the first step. If you are shampooing quite often, then there are chances that the scalp can become too dry. Inorder to maintain the oil balance, the scalp produces excess oil which makes your hair look greasy.


Conditioner Is Being Applied Incorrectly

One needs to remember that using conditioners on an oily scalp can add to the grease. This needs to be avoided when you have oily scalp and the conditioner must be applied mid-shaft through the ends.


Water Is Too Hot

When the scalp is exposed to hot water, the skin becomes too dry. The result is the body produces excess oil to compensate it. Instead use luke warm water to avoid greasy hair.


You Straighten Your Hair Every Day

Do not expose your hair to this painful practice. It not only damages your hair, it also weakens it. If you straighten your hair, then there are chances that it will lie closer to the scalp and get more exposed to the grease on your scalp.


You're Brushing Your Hair Too Frequently

This is one of the main reason for your scalp to produce more oil. Brushing your hair often can only open the pores and make the scalp more oily. Avoid doing so.


The Styling Products Are Too Heavy

Using products like waxes, creams and oils can only make your hair greasier. Avoid exposing your hair to these harmful products and make sure you have a minimal use of all these unwanted styling products.
