The facts and fiction of shampoo and greasy hair

So many experiments and yet not able to find the perfect solution for your greasy

hair. Did you change your shampoo? Did you start oiling your hair for healthy

growth and then you were not to because it produces sebum, so you went back

to your routine? Or you were told to gather your hair in a slick-back pony, and

later you discover it breaks your hair more? And now after years, you found your

perfect match of shampoo and you are advised to change it. Well, you should

give this article a read-on as we debunk some of the oily scalp myths and present

you with some facts.

How many times I should wash my hair?

Okay, so probably you are not going to love this answer, but there’s no definitive,

everything depends on your scalp, hair types, and amount of exposure your hair

gets. It depends on how oily your scalp is, what is the propensity of your hair, how

thick and thin they are, what type of hair care products you use, and other such

factors. Do you get, what I mean? Also, science says that regularly cleaning your

hair won’t do any damage to your hair. In fact, it can strengthen your fragile hair

by reducing harsh brushing and style and its daily wear and tear.

Need to avoid shampooOkay, so this is the big myth. Sebum is produced constantly on your scalp and

onto the hair. If you avoid shampoo, it will have a huge build-up and your hair will

feel oilier and greasier. And the worst case, excess sebum becomes a food

source of bacteria, which can create flaky scalp, dandruff, odour and sometimes

quickens your hair fall.

Need to use shampoo frequently

This is true in most cases. According to the American Academy of Dermatology,

people with extra oily scalp needs to wash their hair quite often and many time

once a day. Just don’t go too rough on washing, it can scrap off natural oils from

your scalp, causing an adverse effect that produces more oil.

Wash, Rinse, & Repeat

This is a false practice for your scalp. It removes the natural oils from your scalp

and is also a complete waste of your products. If you properly wash your hair in

the first go, you don’t need to do it again.

Am I shampooing correctly?

Need to change my shampoos

Duh! No. You don’t have to change your shampoo- it doesn’t stop working all of

sudden. When you shift to a new place or season changes, if you take any

chemical treatments or if your scalp starts producing excess oil, then you might

need to change your shampoo to meet the new demands of your hair. But if there

are no such changes, then you don’t have to rotate your shampoo. Keep working

with the shampoo that is working for you. If it ain’t broke, why fix it?

Shampoo my roots or scalp

That’s right! Start working with your roots and let your shampoo move to roots as

you massage your scalp and rinse it. Then apply conditions from the mid-length

to the ends. Keep in mind that you don’t roughly create friction on your strands.

Aggressive massaging and scrubbing can irritate your skin and produce more


Dry shampoo my hair and scalp

Dry shampoo is not a substitute for your regular shampoo. If you use dry

shampoo more often, it will damage your hair, irritate your scalp, and produce

more dandruff. If you shampoo after a dry shampoo, then there is no harm.

What should I do for my oily scalp?

My brush makes my hair oily

Yes, at times this is true. Brushing can blend all your oils and dirt in your hair

when you detangle them. For that keep your brush clean, soak it in warm soapy water and thoroughly rinse it. Then, let it dry. Clean your brush with tissue and

take out all the loose hair after each brushing.

Straightening and blow-drying makes my hair oily

Yes, you must have heard it often. We love to blow dry, but sadly, blow-drying

actually cause oil through your hair. And hairs straighteners and other tools are

too hot for your hair, so heating your hair is also quite damaging and makes it

greasy. So going with blow-drying and heating tools is not so great for your scalp.

Specific products for the scalp that produces oil faster

Yes! Yes! Yes! Absolutely true. Use the products that target your hair woes. Go

with the shampoo that supports your hair, sulfate and paraben free cleansing

shampoos. Opt for products with tea tree oil to soothe your scalp as they have

anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties.

Not everyone has the same hair. All of us have different type of hair and requires

treatments accordingly. Yes, there is going to be a lot of trial and error before you

get your specific routine. There are some myths and some facts, and you cannot

live without shampooing your hair. Well, it’s 2021, and we are making self-driving

cars, the time is not very far when we make self-washing spaces too. But don’t

believe what you read on the internet. Try MIEL Natural’s Moroccan Argan

Shampoo and Conditioner by yourself and find your best shampoo for your

greasy oily hair. We’ve got you all covered.
