Choosing the Best Shampoo for Oily Hair

Most people, who refer to their hair as dry, normal, or oily, think they are referring to their hair type.

However, did you know that oily hair does not refer to your hair type, but in reality to your scalp type?

For instance, your hair can be fine and thin or it can be thick and curly, but you can still have oily hair! With this knowledge, this is why choosing the correct product for your hair can be a little challenging.

With so many products available to us these days, it’s difficult to know just what works, and more importantly, what is the healthiest for our scalp and hair. But how do we choose? Who do we listen to? Where do we go to buy the right products?

Rejoice! All is not lost! There are quite a few products that come highly recommended by experts who have had experience in this area.

Reviews, testimonials, and stylists can help you head in the right direction. This article is designed to show you a few products that are available for those who have oily scalp and hair.

Those who have fine hair need to stay away from drying ingredients like tea tree oil as it will dry out their strands and make their hair unmanageable. Those who have thick hair need to be careful of not drying up the scalp as their hair will be very difficult to comb out.

The perfect balance of cleaning ingredients are needed to control the sebum production (oily skin release) while at the same time, not over drying your strands, which can leave them dull and lifeless.
