How to Choose a Styling Product for Oily Hair – Buying Guide

Though all people with oily hair have one thing in common (oily hair), everyone’s needs and specific hair types can vary wildly. So consider what’s good for oily hair, but don’t forget to think about things like thickness, texture, and length.

Some Types of Products Work Better Than Others

Some Types of Products Work Better Than Others
There are versions of every hair product marketed at every type of hair, but when it comes to oily hair, certain types just work better than others.
Holding products that tend to add shine—gels and sprays, for example—are exactly the opposite of what you want. Instead, if you’re looking for a little hold, go for a more matte wax or mousse that can help give limp, oily hair some volume and height. If you do need a stronger hold product (like a gel or pomade), look for one that’s low shine or matte.
Dry shampoo can be a godsend for those with oily hair–not just because it can extend the time between washes, but also because it can add some much-needed texture to locks that are too slick to hold certain styles. Texturizing sprays work similarly and sometimes also add a bit of hold.

Avoid Unnecessary Oils, Silicones, and Scalp Irritants

Avoid Unnecessary Oils, Silicones, and Scalp Irritants
When it comes to picking out a product for oily hair, the key is knowing what to avoid.
Naturally, you want to steer clear of products that contain too much oil since your hair already has enough of that. While oils like coconut and olive are healthful, they can also leave your hair weighed down and slick. If you are looking for a moisturizing product with oils, look for lighter argan, jojoba, and tamanu.
Silicones are another type of ingredient to avoid as they can lead to buildup that leaves your hair weighed down or greasy. Another thing to consider is that your scalp tends to produce oil as a form of protection, so it’s also a good idea to stay away from irritating ingredients like sulfates, parabens, and alcohols.

Consider Your Hair Type When Assessing Products

Consider Your Hair Type When Assessing Products
Just because a product is good for oily hair doesn’t mean that it will work for everyone with oily hair. “Oily” is only one aspect of your hair type, and you need to stop and consider other factors.
Whether your hair is thin or thick, straight or textured will also determine if a product will work for you. For example, a product good for those with thick, curly hair could be too heavy for those with thin, straight hair.
Some products may say that they’re good for all hair types, but the best way to figure out who it’s really best for is by reading reviews.

Tips to Last Longer Between Shampoos with Oily Hair

Tips to Last Longer Between Shampoos with Oily Hair
We’ve all heard that it’s better for your hair to wash it less frequently, but when you have oily hair, that can be a bit of a struggle. For those who are looking to give it a shot, here are a few tips.
We mentioned it above, but dry shampoo is your best friend in this endeavor. It soaks up excess oil and instantly makes your hair look cleaner. Be sure to work in layers so that you get your whole scalp.
Keep your hair out of your face. Your face can produce quite a bit of oil, and anytime your hair hits it, it picks some up. So to prevent that, keep it out of the way. Better yet, put it up so that you don’t touch it too much either.
Line up your shampoo days up with your workout days. Your scalp produces more oil when you’re working out, so the last thing you want is a big dose of oil the day after you shampoo (if you aren’t planning on washing again for a few days).
Believe it or not, the less often you wash your hair, the less oil your scalp produces. While people with oilier tendencies will still produce oil, the more often you put some time between your washes, the easier it’ll get. Then, you may find that you can use some heavier styling products after all.

Summary

Oily hair can be tough to deal with, but it’s far from impossible. With a little prior knowledge and some label sleuthing skills, you’re well on your way to the freshest looking updo of your adult life.

    Top 10 Best Japanese Hair Dyes in 2020 - Tried and True! (Kao Liese, Palty, and More)
    Let’s get this straight–there’s no such thing as a “best” hair dye. Strictly speaking. Just like there’s no such thing as a “best” concealer or “best” mattress or “best” jacket because it all comes down to you. What kind of skin do you have? What kind of sleeping posture? Do you get cold easily?This time around, we ordered the 10 most popular hair dyes found in Japanese drugstores and on Japan’s e-commerce sites and compared the following:1. How vivid the color was2. How gentle on hair the dye was3. How long the color lastedHowever, we want you to keep in mind that the Japanese hair dyes we introduce were formulated with Japanese (naturally black, bleached Asian) hair in mind and are most effective on hair of a similar quality.

If not, though, results may be a bit unexpected.

    Top 23 Best Japanese Whitening Serums in 2020 - Tried and True! (Haku, SK-II, and More)
    It’s a buzzword in Japan: translucence. It’s similar to Korea’s glass skin–skin so pure that it’s nearly transparent, resembling layers of frosted glass. In the Western world, think "glow" or "dewy finish." In order to respond to that aesthetic, cosmetic companies–both drugstore and high-end–here have been coming out with scores of whitening serums, essences, and ampoules.As always, it’s difficult to tell what kind of skincare is effective and what isn’t. That’s why, this time around, we ordered the 24 most popular whitening serums from Japan’s e-commerce giants (such as Amazon, Rakuten, and @cosme) and tested them all. We also invited a skincare specialist and had her compare the following:1. Hydration2. ApplicationThis is how we tested and found the most exceptional Japanese whitening serums, essences, and ampoules. See why we picked Chifure's Whitening Essence VC as our top choice and more!

    We don’t know when it started, but Japanese women are known–have been known for a while–for beautiful skin. And walking around Tokyo, you can’t help but think “where’s there’s smoke, there’s fire.” While there’s no one factor that makes one’s skin what it is, we’d hazard a guess and say skincare is important.The Japanese skincare routine has quite a few steps. There’s cleansing; then the first step after cleansing is toning.

    We might not be able to prevent aging altogether, but we can still age gracefully. That feels like the consensus here in Japan, where anti-aging skincare is popular and constantly evolving. As time goes by, our skin undergoes certain changes–hormones are thrown out of balance, certain functions are dulled–and serums that you used once may no longer be as effective.So which serums a) target the signs of aging and b) will actually work for you? In order to answer that question, we ordered the 18 most popular anti-aging※1 serums※2 from Japan’s e-commerce giants (such as Amazon, Rakuten, and @cosme) and tested them all.
