I have fine, greasy hair. When I wash every day, I’m one of those people whose hair is greasy by the time I leave work the same day.
Now, I normally go around 4 days without washing. The first two days I wear my hair down. The next two it is up in a pony tail. Day 5 it’ll usually be in a bun.
I’m currently not using dry shampoo, but it definitely helps. If I want day 2 or 3 to be a great hair day with my hair down, I put a bunch of dry shampoo in before bed, and put my hair up in a high ponytail on top of my head. The next morning, the grease is gone and I have volume.
For me, blow drying my roots is also a must. I have no idea why, but if I don’t blow dry my hair it gets oily faster and looks thinner.
No way I would do that, don’t even ask me to lol. I have normal hair but still I need to wash them 3 times a week and I can’t imagine going on without washing them any longer, they become greasy and it really shows. Hair sprays are also a strict NO for me beause they make my hair look greasy, too. My friend photographed me once at some party when I had curly hair fixed by a hair spray and I spent a lot of time working on this photo in photoworks and trying to make them look better. It was some 2 years ago and I still avoid hair sprays, haha. So scalp training isn’t for me either, I just can’t stand my hair looking greasy
But I also wouldn’t say that I gradually did anything. I just chose to go 4 days in between washing, and eventually my hair stopped being so oily. Using silicone/paraben/etc -free shampoos is also key. A few months ago I made the mistake of using Pantene while staying at someone’s house, and it took me a month before my hair was back to “normal” with washing every 4 days. It was miserable, but I still waited 4 days every time.
I don’t do the gradual thing because I don’t really care. I just put my nasty hair up in a bun with a headband and wash it again 4 or 5 days later.
