Is oily hair a problem for you? Whether your hair has always been oily or has just recently become an issue, it’s inconvenient and at times embarrassing. So, we thought we’d spend some time looking at how to overcome this frustrating hair problem and of course how our luxury Epsom salts can help too.
What causes oily hair?
How to deep cleanse your hair and scalp
With oily hair it’s vital to ensure the scalp is cleansed just as thoroughly as the hair. With our modern busy lives, we are all sometimes guilty of rushing the process. But to get lightweight, clean hair a careful deep cleanse can be just the trick, here’s how:
Now often people will stop here, but with oily hair we recommend a double cleanse. The first shampoo should remove dead skin cells, product build up and pollution. The second cleanse can then be more effective at clearing the scalp of excess oil and sebum. Just repeat the steps above again and ensure a very thorough rinse.
Even if you don’t get oily hair that often, it’s still great to apply a deep cleanse to your hair once in a while to remove build-up, pollution and dead skin. If your hair tends to be dryer just add the salts to your conditioner instead of your shampoo.
Using conditioner with oily hair
If you have greasy hair you may be put off using conditioners and serums, but if you ensure these are applied sparingly, to the ends of your hair only, you should be fine to use these products.
Heat styling – a blessing and a curse
Modern life has seen us rely heavily on heat styling for our hair. Whether we want poker straight hair or voluminous curly locks, our heat styling products give us freedom and flexibility. However, adding heat to your styling regime can cause your hair to get oily more quickly. This is because the heat encourages the oil to ‘melt’ and spread more quickly along your hair strands.
If oily hair is a problem for you, why not get creative with styling, using curling products to shape your hair while drying naturally without extreme heats. Not only will this prevent oily hair it will also lessen the chance of split ends and damage to the hair.

I don't usually write reviews on products but am so impressed with Relax Bath & Body oil. I suffer from Parkinsons and disabilities which makes it difficult for me to sleep. However, using this oil before bed really helps me to relax and therapeutic sleep follows. I have no hesitation in recommending it.
