    Having hair that gets greasy easily can be a nightmare, so finding the best shampoo for greasy hair is nothing short of essential.

    It’s not just about how often you should wash your hair or not washing your hair before you go to bed – your shampoo really is the first port of call. You need something that will get rid of heavy-duty oil, without stripping your hair of all its natural goodness. It’s no mean feat trying to manage greasy hair, we know, but it can be done.

    If you have hair that’s prone to the oily look, you’re no doubt tempted to wash it every single day and do so. But this can really damage your locks and end up stripping them of their natural oils and nutrients, which can end up leaving you with the delightful combination of greasy roots and dry ends. Not what you want, right?

    You therefore need something that’s going to cleanse away the grease and keep it away for a few days. But don’t panic – we’ve done the hard work for you and scoured the market for the best formulas out there to combat greasy hair.

    If you struggle with the idea of washing your hair every other day, arm yourself you one of the best dry shampoos for those in-between days. Not only will they absorb that pesky excess oil, but they will help lift a flattened root giving a boost of volume.

    If the issue persists, don’t panic because there are other options, like scalp treatments – think of them like a facial for your head. Or speak with a trichologist if it’s really bothering you. You can also read our comprehensive guide to dealing with greasy hair here.
