Food supplements to strengthen hair
First of all, know how to put all the chances on your side. Some dietary supplements can help you limit the loss of your hair, such as those with brewer’s yeast, or even nettle or alfalfa.

Natural solutions against greasy hair
Many women complain that their hair gets greasy too quickly. Here again, natural solutions exist to have beautiful, non-greasy hair.
Space out the shampoos
Most of the time, this problem is caused by too frequent hair washing.
Indeed, it is not necessary to wash your hair every day: the more you wash it, the more the body produces sebum to protect itself. Space out your shampoos!
If your hair really gets greasy too quickly in the space of two days, the day after your shampoo, sprinkle your roots with talc and rub until the powder disappears, the latter will absorb the excess sebum.
Homemade shampoo with essential oils
Against oily hair, you can also concoct your own organic shampoo with essential oils.
- 5 drops of cedar essential oil
- 5 drops of lavender essential oil
- an organic cleansing base
- 5 drops of thyme essential oil
- also, add 5 drops of grapefruit essential oil
- 5 drops of lemon essential oil
- 5 drops of rose geranium essential oil
Mix everything, apply by massaging gently (do not rub the scalp to prevent it from producing even more sebum), then rinse.
A purifying clay mask
To absorb excess sebum and purify your hair, you can also perform a clay mask once a week. There are different types of clay that will more or less adapt to the nature of your hair. Against oily hair, green clay is one of the most effective natural ingredients.
