​Expert tips to manage oily hair

​Expert tips to manage oily hair
2 years ago

Although natural oils play an essential part in keeping your scalp and hair healthy, it is possible to have too much of a good thing! When produced in normal amounts, sebum keeps your strands smooth and hydrated, preventing excessive drying which can lead to breakage. When sebum production goes overboard however, the result is limp, greasy hair.

So what causes overproduction of sebum? Quite a few things as it happens! From your genes to hormonal imbalances, humidity and your diet – even touching your hair too often can help spread the oil further down the hair fibre.

Treating oily roots at home

When dealing with greasy locks, your first instinct might be to wash your hair more often, but try shampooing every other day with our Bain Divalent shampoo, which is specially formulated to cleanse and purify the scalp.

Pro tip – after shampooing, make sure you rinse twice to reduce any build-up which can weigh your tresses down and make them appear greasier.

After cleansing, replenish your scalp with the Masque Hydra-Apaisant from our Specifique range. Because it works directly on your scalp rather than your hair like a traditional mask, it is ideal for sensitive and even oily scalps. For best results use this expert tip! Make sure your hair is soaking wet before you apply to your scalp and massage it in to boost penetration and circulation. After three minutes, rinse to reveal a soothed, refreshed scalp and long-lasting comfort.

Getting in-salon expert help to get rid of oily hair

For an even more personalised approach, head to your nearest Kérastase salon for the Spécifique Protocole for oily hair. Tailored to your hair’s specific needs, this bespoke treatment starts with a nourishing pre-shampoo Masquargil mask, a double cleanse to gently get rid of any impurities followed by a shampoo and treatment to target oily roots and hair. The result? A perfectly rebalanced scalp and beautifully silky hair.
