Grease, Be Gone! Here's How To Combat Oily Hair

If you’ve got naturally oily hair, you’re no doubt washing it every single day to remove the oily look and feel—but did you know that this can do more damage to your locks than good? Our hair needs natural oils to stay healthy, but frequent washing with shampoo can end up stripping them of all this goodness. While we understand that you don't want to be walking around with an oily head most especially in this heat, there are far better products and solutions than simply washing it twice a day. 

To keep your oily hair worries at bay, we’ve combed through some of the best shampoos to bring you the best formulas that cut through the icky oils (the bad ones) while maintaining a healthy head of hair. We hope you find your hair soulmate in here somewhere!
