Who here /greasyhair/?
>tfw shower every morning and hair looks like shit by half way through the day
>tfw all these products designed to add oil to "moisturize" your hair
>tfw can literally feel the grease on your scalp if you skip a shower
just fucking end me fampai
inb4 "don't wash your hair as often, it stimulates grease follicles". This is some fucking broscience bullshit
>ywn have awesome kpop hair
why even live?
Its true. I stopped washing my hair as an experiment. It got really really greasy for about 2 weeks, and after that it normalized somehow. Now my hair looks amazing every day and I never have to mess with it. To be clear I still take showers and run water through it, I just dont use shampoo or conditioner. This seems to work better with short hair than long hair.
I dont know about grease follicles or whatever, just try it. It costs you nothing, and you already look like a greasy piece of shit so you have very little to lose.
>coworkers at old job used to call me Severus Snape
>can blot my hair on a piece of paper and have grease come off
>24 fucking years old, shower every day, shampoo+condition every 2-3 days, still have this issue
It's not hormonal, it's not my diet, I exercise, get enough sunlight, sleep normally, I don't know what the fuck is wrong with me.
Tip top protips:
>ALWAYS shower in the morning, never at night
>Immediately towel dry hair and blow dry it in direction you want it to stay
>Use a light amount of non-oily product, i.e. a very thick matte wax rather than an oily cream
>Copious amounts of hair spray, especially on underside of bangs
Wearing a hat if going somewhere windy stops it getting all rekt
Forgot #1 rule as well, don't fucking use conditioner. It is literally designed to add grease to your hair.
Stay away from anything "hydrating" or shit like that, that's gonna add oils too. Go for "clarifying" shampoo.
Also, shampoo once, rinse, then shampoo again.
People will probably tell you it will fuck up your hair but even if that were true (which it isn't) you've got nothing to lose at this point.
>always shower in the morning
I do this
>immediately towel-dry hair
I also do this
Don't do this, I don't want heat damage on top of everything else
>light amount of product
I've tried a ton of different serums, waxes, creams, pomades and gels, and nothing helps, they all just make my hair look worse.
you absolute madman
I have long hair with no bangs, hairspray would do nothing but make my hair look even more shit.
>don't fucking use conditioner
I'll try not using it for a little while and see if it helps.
>shampoo once, rinse, shampoo again
wouldn't that strip my hair of its natural oils and make it produce even more?
Used to have that problem, here's how you fix it. Buy a bottle of dry shampoo and a bottle of head and shoulders conditioner. Skip one shower. I know it's gonna blow cock but you gotta do it. The next morning, use only conditioner in the shower, and carry the dry shampoo with you. Sprinkle a little in halfway through your day and work it into your scalp. It will absorb and crazy excess oil your scalp produces. Stop washing your hair with gel shampoo, especially if it contains sulfates, because they're incredibly damaging to the proteins your hair is made up of, and will dry them out, leading to your scalp producing more oil to make up for it.
It's a shitty cycle but literally all you gotta do is not wash your hair as much, as retarded as that may sound.
Dry shampoo, OP. The best stuff I use is pic related. It's expensive as shit but literally I used to have to wash my hair once a day because it'd be dripping in grease after 6 hours. Now I just spray this shit on whenever it gets greasy and I can avoid washing my hair for like at least 3 days. Don't know how healthy it is, don't care.
i stopped using shampoo and my hair stopped being greasy, - i don't even get the two week delay people claim, it was within 2-3 days. being no-poo for about 3 years, and my hair actually gets too dry now from time to time if have a shower thats too hot, i think that's due to the heat removing the last traces of grease. i also used to have really bad dandruff, or rather lumps of flesh gunk due to the grease, and that's also gone.
bro science or not, shampoo is a total gimmick. but conditioner works as described if used very sparingly.
Did you try different shampoos? Is your hat greasy as fuck?
I guess some people just get their hair greasy more often. I also heard the more often you shampoo the faster it gets greasy.
The no-poo meme is fucking awful. Some guy at work has been doing it for a couple months now and he looks disgusting every day. I think he's just deluded himself into thinking it's okay to be greasy or gotten used to it or something.
Probably is more healthy, but it looks awful. Maybe it's the product he uses, fuck knows.
Stop using shampoo and wash your hair everyday with water. Your hair will be greasy for a week or two (or longer depending on length of hair) but after that your scalp will adjust and produce less oil
>haven't used shampoo in more than a year and my hair is thicker, softer, doesn't smell and doesn't need gel to shape
>I also heard the more often you shampoo the faster it gets greasy.
Literally the equivalent of fat people saying if you don't eat enough you gain weight because your metabolism "slows down".
>doesn't need gel to shape
that's because it's full of grease
>doesn't smell and doesn't need gel to shape
I do this too, here's some advice
first wash your hair in a very warm water and scrub your scalp with the tips of your fingers (not nails!!)
then wash your hair in cold water, this is to remove the poof effect and because cold water is healthy for hair
and that's it, no shampoosno conditioners, nothing
I went no-poo. Looked like shit for a month or so (have long hair), now it looks really soft and non-greasy.
Then after about 6 months I tried shampoo again because smells nice. After the third time my hair looked more greasy than I'd ever seen it. Was disgusting. So stopped using shampoo and it went back to soft after 1-2 weeks.
