Try to find a shampoo that has NO added conditioners. Unless your hair is damaged, you do not need a conditioner. Conditioners, (back in the day we called them "cream rinse") just weigh your hair down, and can feel greasy.

Also, don't massage your scalp. This brings oil to the surface. Don't use a brush that stimulates your scalp. Use warm, not hot water, as hot water can stimulate the oil glands as well.

Hats, for some reason, can make the hair feel greasy. Some people just have more oil in their scalp and skin than others. If this is you, be glad, as you won't get wrinkled as fast as others. :)

First thing is to stop washing your hair every day. This stimulates the oil glands then when you brush it the oil is spread throughout the hair. The longer you can leave it the better it will get.


Start by washing every second day then add an extra day as you can. Use a very mild shampoo then rinse with lemon juice. Leave it in your hair for as long as you can then rinse.

You can still shower everyday, but don't shampoo and condition your hair every time you shower. This helps because the shampoo strips your hair of oils making your glands produce more(or even overproduce) oils making your hair greasy again, but when you just rinse it cleans unnecessary oils of you hair! Really hope this works!

Try using a clarifying shampoo and never use a shampoo/conditioner combo. Sometimes a little baby powder brushed through your hair can help
