Everyone’s hair is unique and as such we all have different hair types. From dealing with dry, oily or normal hair types, it can be difficult to manage. While many resources exist for each individual type, having a combination of the two may be a little harder to control. We know that you are probably thinking, “but how can you address both problems at the same time”? If you are struggling with dry ends but have an oily scalp, continue reading to find out how you can rebalance your hair.
We’ve got everything you need to know below.
Is your scalp oily and do you have dry ends?
To tell if you have an oily scalp and dry ends, keep a note of your hair condition throughout the week. If after 2 days of washing your hair your scalp feels greasy. Yet when you touch the ends of your hair they feel dry and brittle, it’s likely that you have a combination of hair types. People who suffer from oily roots tend to find the scalp feels irritated and itchy.
For those with coloured treated hair, combination hair types are quite common. This is because, after a chemical hair service, natural oils from your hair is stripped away, leaving strands more susceptible to dry and brittle ends. Fortunately, at GA Salons, our hair coloring services are 100% natural and organic, so your hair will remain just as healthy as it was before.
Here are GA Salson top 5 tips on how to combat combination type hair: Oily Scalp and Dry ends
Use dry Shampoo
As tempting as it may be to wash your hair every day to prevent excess oils from building on your scalp. This can be counterproductive for your dry ends. Consider using a dry shampoo in between wash days to absorb the excess oil. This will prevent natural oils be stripped away from your hair and give you that needed refresh for the day.
Change your Hairbrush
Brushing your hair in continuous strokes from roots to tip can help to redistribute oils to your hair. When brushing your hair focus your first stroke directly on the roots and follow through to the tips of each strand. Keep this motion going throughout and continue this practice on a daily basis.
Alter your hair washing routine
Shampoos can be one of the most drying products that can come into contact with your hair. So, the next time you wash your hair, only wash your scalp! You might think you’re leaving the stands of your hair dirty but the residue from the shampoo will continue to trickle down your hair and cleanse each strand. Don’t forget to follow up with a moisturising condition but leave your roots untouched.
Find the right hair oil
Fighting oily scalp with additional oils may seem pointless .. but hear us out.! Yes, we would advise avoiding extra oils on your scalp but they can still be used on the ends of your hair. Use a few drops of your favorite oil on the ends of your hair and work your way upwards stoping mid leght. This will give your hair that instant boost of hydration and shine.
Get a trim
Sometimes no matter what technique or products you use, a quick trim can do your hair wonders. Split ends are unable to retain as much moisture as healthy ends. Regular trims will help keep split ends from traveling up your hair strands. Making the natural oils from your scalp travel easily to the ends of your hair.
We hope that by following our simple tips, we can help you rebalance your combination hair. Along with making your hair more manageable, these tips can help improve the health and appearance of your hair over time.
