Greasy hair solution
Ever had greasy hair after not shampooing for 1 day? When its summertime and you go camping, or just don’t feel like shampooing for a day, your hair might get greasy and unmanageable. One thing that’s important to know is that its best to shampoo your hair only a few times a week so that your sebaceous glands produce a normal amount of sebum (natural oil). When you shampoo daily, you strip your hair of all its natural oils which causes your sebaceous glands to overproduce too much oil to compensate. Therefore, when you stop shampooing less and less, your sebaceous glands will gradually adjust to it, and stop overproducing sebum, which in turn will not cause you to have greasy scalp or hair. If you decide to shampoo less and less you will find that it only takes about 1-2 weeks for your sebaceous glands to adjust and stop overproducing sebum. In this 1-2 week timeframe, you will want to get some hair powder to absorb the excess oil until you notice your glands producing less oil. At that point, you won’t need the hair powder, you won’t have to shampoo every day, and your hair and scalp will be naturally healthier!
