My hair started to get oily and my hairdresser told me to quit shampooing it so much (i.e. every day). Apparently your hair/scalp reacts to the fact that you are stripping away the natural oils and overproduces in response. I’m lucky in that I work from home at least a few days a week so I started to just not wash my hair on those days. Make no mistake, at first it seemed worse than ever but now I’ve actually to the point where I can usually go every other day which I’ve NEVER been able to do before. Apparently you can also gradually decrease the amount of shampoo you use to sort of “wean” yourself off it.

I have an oily scalp and dry ends from coloring.  I like bumble & bumble’s Tonic shampoo.  It has tea tree oil in it and it is one of the few shampoos that makes my scalp feel clean.  I also use dry shampoo on the days I don’t wash it (I only wash it everyother day to help keep my color vibrant).  

My brother uses Neutrogena’s TGel shampoo and he likes it a lot.  He has sensitive skin and is prone to dandruff but this stuff gets his scalp super clean even after long days of working in construction wearing a hard hat and sweating.

Try rinsing with ACV and not washing it out. Itll only smell until it dries. Mix like 1part ACV to 3 parts water or less to begin, you can always add more vinegar.
