It's annoying I have to wash it everyday for it to look nice. If I dont it's wayyyyyy to oily looking. Just wondering if there is a reason for this. I use Aubrey shampoo and I don't use cond. exept coconut oil once a week as a leave in treatment.

i found for me that i took a week and a hlaf for my hair to stop being oily! i had to not was my hair for that long for my hair to know that it IS getting oil and to stop making so much oil. i did this when we were at the cabin for a week. i know it sounds gross, but for me it worked well!

Your life doesnât change by the man whos elected. If your loved by someone you can't be rejected... decide what to be and go be it! If your a caged bird brake in and demand that somebody free it.

There are many reasons which are dependent on the modality you are subscribed to. Many people have found that dietary changes help, but what I can personally attest to is that overwashing overstimulated oil production. IT's a catch 22. The more you wash the more you have to wash. When you reduce the amount the month or so transitional period can be tough, but it's well worth it.

Not that you DON'T wash it, you wash it less often with shampoo (or whatever you use) and just rinse between. I thought it was nuts when I first tried.
