Too much touching

When you touch your hair, the oil from your fingers will be left on your hair. So if you touch your hair too often, it will quickly get greasy. So try not to do it as much as you can, even if you’re trying to flirt with someone, or just because you are bored.

Washing your hair too often

It’s true that washing your hair can clean the oil, but if you use shampoo daily, your oily hair’s condition will get even worse. Because the shampoo will take away the natural oil in your scalp, therefore it has to produce more oil to replace. It’s recommended that you wash your hair every other day or 2-3 times per week. You will thank yourself in the future.

Using too much conditioner

Be careful when choosing and using a conditioner, because it can weigh your hair down if it’s not suitable with your hair type. Wash the conditioner carefully so that it won’t leave any excess oil, and apply it only on the hair ends to avoid oily roots.
