Reasons Your Hair May Be Getting Oily That May Surprise You

Maintaining a Daily Routine of Brushing Your Hair

Too little brushing makes hair snarled, too much makes it oily. Brushing distributes oils, keeping hair smooth and lustrous. 

Cosmopolitan noted that brushing can also increase oil production, creating a cycle of brushing and grease.  Only brush and touch your hair as necessary.

Touching Hair Often

Touching your hair too much can cause oil and acne, too. The natural oil on your hands protects them. Touching your hair transfers that oil directly to it.

Inadequate B Vitamin Intake

Your diet affects your entire body, including your hair. B vitamins, especially B2 and B6, regulate sebum production and help prevent greasy hair. 

Fortunately, B6 is present in beans, pork, chicken, fish, and various fruits and vegetables. It also reduces sugar cravings.

Constant Use of the Ponytail

Ponytails are attractive, but if you want a new hairstyle, avoid them.Under the ponytail holder, oil and dirt can build up. The rubber band acts as a barricade, trapping oil

 grime, and grease in the microscopic spaces between your strands.Avoid putting it up even when it's hot.Your scalp may not breathe if your hair is matted.

Initial Overwashing

Reduce hairwashing.Overwashing hair eliminates natural oils. The body produces additional oil to replace lost oils, causing buildup and oily hair.

Try going two days without washing to see what happens. Next, wash your hair only once or twice a week.  Dry shampoo can prolong your hairstyle if you need a wash.
