Oily Hair

Add 1/4 cup lemon juice to 1/3 cup of your regular shampoo. Wash as usual. This will also add highlights!
Lemon and Aloe Vera Shampoo
• 2 teaspoons Aloe Vera Gel (squeeze gel out of Aloe Vera plant)
• 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Blend ingredients together with 1/4 cup of your regular hair shampoo. Wash hair then rinse well.

The most important thing you can do to prevent or resolve oily hair is to shampoo your hair daily. For people who tend to have a problem with oily hair, leaving the shampoo on your head for at least 5 minutes before rinsing, should help.

Avoid brushing your hair too often or too vigorously, since the brushing will carry oil from your scalp to the ends of your hair. Hormones affect oil production and therefore things that affect your hormone levels (such as stress or birth control pills) may also affect the oiliness of your hair.
Banish the Oil

Hair is generally oilier in summer because the heat stimulates the sebaceous (oilproducing) glands in your scalp. You can combat oily hair by washing it in tepid water and applying conditioner just to the ends. Use a shampoo and conditioner for oily or fine hair.
Anti-oil Hair Rinse

Combine a tablespoon of vinegar and a pinch of baking soda in one cup of water (or brewed rosemary or peppermint tea) and use as an after shampoo rinse by rubbing it into your wet scalp for one minute, then rinse.

It helps prevent an oily scalp, and gently finishes the cleansing process without stripping the shine from your hair. Also, if your hair is making your skin oily, try to keep it away from your face, especially when exercising and working. Wash your hair brushes (& make-up brushes) at least once a week with mild shampoo; and change your pillow case every other day.
