Wash oil out your hair

Washing your hair the right amount of times, is important to control the oil in your hair. If you suffer from oily hair that it can be important to wash your hair more often, at least one time a day. But if you are already doing that than your skin might by to dry. Frequently washing your hair can outbalance your scalp’s oil production, which makes the hair oily.

Use proper products against oily hair

It is important to shampoo your hair properly and gently work with a small amount of shampoo on your hair. Avoid aggressive scrubbing or using your nails, because it can irritate your scalp. And if your scalp irritates it produces more oil.

When using a conditioner you only have to condition the end of the hair, and make sure you thoroughly rinse your hair. After rinsing your hair you should not dry your hair with straightening irons or blow dryers, because this can make your hair look oilier. That is why you should dry your hair naturally to avoid heat damage and the appearance of oily hair.

Make sure to not only clean your hair and scalp carefully, but also clean your brush before using it. In your brush all kinds of oil from other hair products can get stuck. You can use a gentle soap to prevent this from happening.

Causes of oily hair

Greasy and oily hair is brought up by a buildup of excess sebum. Sebum is naturally occuring oil produced within the sebaceous glands located near your hair follicles. In a normal situation your body can tell exactly, how much oil it needs to keep your scalp healthy and hydrated. 

Unfortunately, the oil glands sometimes overdrive their production of sebum, resulting in excess oils that leave your hair and scalp feel greasy. This is caused by internal factors, such as hormonal inbalance or external factors like your everyday routine.

Things you should avoid 

There are a few things you should avoid, when you start to combat against your oily hair. Firstly, the product is important but secondly the factors below can also help your scalp condition to get healthy again.

Avoid products that stimulate oily hair

For a good and healthy scalp and hair condition you should avoid products with silicones. Neofollics doesn’t use any kind of silicones in their products, while in other products it is used regularly. But, silicones are really bad for your hair condition. Through silicones beneficial moisture can’t get in to the hair shafts. Do yourself a favour and before using a product look up to the ingredients. And prevent yourself from buying any product with an ingredient, with ‘-cone’ on the end.

Why should you switch your brush and towel

When you keep using the same brush and towel, there is a big chance the oily hair will continue. Because it could stay on the towel and brush. We advise the scalp massaging brush of Neofollics. That does not only massage your scalp and makes it feel nice. It can also help with several scalp conditions and stimulate hair growth.

You should not brush to often because, doing so can stimulate excess oil production and may even cause damaged hair and hair loss. As is the case with most things in life, it’s all about finding the right balance.

Don't unnecessary keep touching your hair

Touching your hair might not look like a big deal, because most of the time is happens without even noticing. But when your fingers touch your hair to often, it can really affect the look and feel of the tresses.

When your fingertips touch your hair you could easily move sebum. Something that can worsen the situation. So our advise is; take your hands off your hair!


It is possible to treat oily hair with a Shampoo, but you also need to know how to avoid it in the future. That's why Neofollics has developed Scalp Products that help you fight oily hair now, but also avoid scalp conditions in the future.
