Need to wash your greasy hair but can’t find the time? Or maybe you’re trying to oil train your locks? Either way, we’ve been there, so we know how difficult it can be to care for a greasy scalp. Thankfully, we also know a thing or two about hiding hair that desperately needs a wash. Whether it means adding a few hair care products to your regimen or taking a new look for a spin, we’re here to teach you a few tips and tricks for styling greasy hair.
Say goodbye to flat roots by giving them a quick lift. While doing your morning beauty routine, try clipping your front pieces up with a small claw clip and spritz a bit of hair spray, like the L'Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Hairspray, to hold the lifted shape. When you’re done getting ready and you’ve given the hair spray some time to settle in, unclip your locks and admire your refreshed roots.
The perfect way to cover up any greasy roots (or dried out ends, which can happen when you skip a wash day) is to braid your hair. There’s a reason why braided hair is considered a protective style. We especially love a halo braid for not only hiding unwashed hair, but also for shaking things up with a new look. If you’re unsure of how to do a halo braid at home, this tutorial will guide you through.
Wherever you stand on the side vs. middle part debate, you can still use clips to style your greasy hair. By strategically placing clips or barrettes, you can create a slicked down look that seems intentional. Try spritzing a bit of dry shampoo, like the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Air Volume Dry Shampoo, on your roots to absorb any excess oil. If you prefer an updo, pull your hair into a twist and fasten it with a cute claw clip for added height to your weighed down locks.
If all else fails, grab your favorite hat. Whether it be a baseball cap, cool bucket hat or a beanie, no one will be able to spot your dirty locks!
If you’re prone to oily hair, we suggest switching out your shampoo and conditioner for a duo formulated specifically for your needs. The L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Shampoo and the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Conditioner purify oily roots and hydrate dry lengths so you can have grease-free hair days.
