The closer your tresses lies to your scalp, the more oil it comes in contact with. To rectify this issue, you can consider curling your tresses. Having a little more volume keeps your hair away from your scalp. Or you can try teasing your hair.

2. Playing With Your Hair

You have good intention to wash your locks to cleanse the grease, unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. Over washing your hair can strip your scalp of its natural oils which results in your scalp producing more oil to replace them.

4. Wrong Products

It is essential to clean your hairbrush every now and then. If you’re using a hairbrush that is full of hair, you’re transferring grease from old strands back to your clean hair.

End of the day, its important that we use the right products and keep our tools clean to keep oil at bay.
