When you have oily hair, you’ve probably wondered what you can do to get rid of the excess grease at your roots. You may have even considered hiding your hair under a hat to avoid letting others see your oily hair. The thing is, sometimes your roots might be oily but your ends are dry, and that can make caring for your hair difficult. It’s all about finding the right products—from shampoo to conditioner to dry shampoo. Here, learn all about our best shampoo for oily hair along with the products you should use it in conjunction with and additional tips for taking care of oily hair.
If you have greasy roots, then try our best shampoo for oily hair, the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Shampoo. When used alongside the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Conditioner and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Pre-Shampoo Mask, this shampoo can help instantly purify oily roots and hydrate dry lengths without weighing hair down for beautifully fresh, flowing hair from root to tip. All three of these products are formulated with three refined clays. The system deeply absorbs excess oil at the root while rehydrating dry lengths.
Now it’s time to put your new shampoo to good use! Follow the below instructions for using our best shampoo for oily hair along with the other products in our Extraordinary Clay line.
Step 1: Pre-shampoo mask. The first step in your shower routine if youu have oily hair should be using a pre-shampoo mask. Our pre-shampoo mask should be applied to dry roots section by section. Make sure to fully cover your entire head, then leave the mask on for five minutes. Once those five minutes are up, gently massage your scalp while rinsing out the mask.
Step 2: Shampoo. It’s go time! Once you’ve rinsed out the hair mask, massage the shampoo into wet hair, lather, then rinse.
Step 3: Conditioner. Your shower routine wouldn’t be complete without conditioner. After rinsing out shampoo, apply the conditioner, leave it on for 1-3 minutes, then rinse out thoroughly.
Step 4: Dry shampoo. Oily hair need a little refresh later on in the day? Reach for dry shampoo. The L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo helps instantly refresh hair between shampoos. It absorbs excess oil for fresh, lightweight hair with no visible residue. To use, first shake the can well. Then, hold it 6-8 inches from your hair and spray directly onto oily roots and lightly throughout the rest of your hair to absorb oil. Brush through and you’re good to go.
Now that you know how to use our best shampoo for oily hair, we’re here to share a few extra hair care tips for your hair type.
1. Only use conditioner from your mid-lengths to ends. While your first instinct might be to apply conditioner all over your hair when you’re in the shower, that’s not the best idea, especially if you have oily hair, since this can make your hair appear greasier. Only use conditioner from about midway down to your ends. Since your ends can get dry, this is the area of your hair that especially needs added moisture from conditioner.
2. Brush, brush, brush your hair. Don’t forget to brush! Doing so can help distribute your natural oils from your roots to the rest of your hair—this can help keep your roots from looking extra greasy. Try brushing your hair before going to bed each night.
3. Lay off the styling products. You know how we told you to focus conditioner away from your roots? Well, this tip is in a similar vein. If you have oily hair, try not to go overboard with styling products, especially near your roots, since this can make your hair look even greasier.
