I have fine hair buts lots of, I naturally shed a lot of hair. When I was pregnant I hardly shed any at all then at 3 months PP I started loosing a ton of hair until about 7 months PP. Then I started growing a lot of new hair and it looked kind of crazy so I got my hair cut into a very short layered bob. It looked great and stayed in shape for days without washing. Now though it has started to get longer and it's getting greasier and greasier. It's not really long enough to tie up so that I could stretch it another day without washing it. Now I have got into the habit of washing it more and more and I don't know how to get out of it!
Is there anything I should be doing to make it less greasy? Is conditioning it making it worse? If I don't condition it it feels like straw for the first day until the greas starts to build up. I have the sort of hair that when it's just washed it looks really thick and poofy, the next day it just hangs there, the day after I have to camouflage it by pinning some bits up, the day after it has to be washed. Just lately I'm washing it a day earlier though. I really do have to blow dry it otherwise it looks ridiculous. Could this be making it worse? I thought blow drying dried your hair out?
Any tips? Thx!
Did you try sprinkling some corn starch on the greasy spots to stretch out the times between showering? It soaks up the oil and you just brush it out so it's not noticeable. The more you wash it, the faster it gets greasy because you are stripping out the oils and convincing the scalp to make more to keep the hair from getting dry.
I haven't tried corn starch before. I did recently try dry shampoo in a spray can but it was a disaster. It's really talc in a can. The whole bathroom was covered and my hair looked grey (it's dark brown) and powdery.
My hair is straight but if I don't blow dry it is kinks out and just looks odd.
I guess maybe washing it every three days isn't that bad then! My mum has super thick blond hair and only washes it once a week and it stays looking great!
When you wash your hair is it best to shampoo once or twice? I normally only do it once but maybe this doesn't get it clean enough?
