Do you already have straggly hair after a single day and have stopped counting the used dry shampoo bottles?

No, you cannot regulate the scalp's natural oil production. Sometimes the increased sebum production is also hormonal. Hair often becomes oilier before menstruation. But there are also a few habits that can cause your hair to become greasy faster than usual. How to prevent:

6 causes: This is why your hair greases faster than normal

1. You always wear a ponytail

The ponytail is the perfect hairstyle: quickly gather hair up high, and you immediately look coiffed and tidy. However, if you always tie your hair together, sebum can get caught under the braid. In addition, the hair oil is no longer evenly distributed to the tips if the hair is flat and close to the head. The roots grease faster. What helps: Always wear your hair open or in a loose braid at the nape of the neck.

2. Your hairbrush needs to be cleaned

Yes, it annoys us as much as it annoys you: cleaning the hairbrush thoroughly is a tedious task. But if you want to prevent greasy hair, then it's imperative. Because styling products, hair sebum, dust and flakes of skin: All of this is deposited on the bristles of the brush and is nicely distributed in your hair with every styling. The result: oily hair.

3. Cures & Conditioners: You care too excessively

Care is extremely important for healthy, beautiful hair. Especially if you tend to have dry ends, you will regularly apply treatments or care products to your hair. Make sure, however, that you only work the products into the tips and not on the hairline. Because care products on the scalp only ensure a greasy appearance. The exception is a scalp tonic: it covers and moisturizes the scalp, but does not additionally stimulate sebum production.

4. You comb too much

100 brush strokes a day, that's what our grandma advised us to do. However, if you tend to have oily hair, then you shouldn't swing the brush quite as often. Otherwise you will stimulate your scalp too much and distribute the sebum in lengths.

5. You shampoo your hair too often

Fat hair every day? Shampoo allows the scalp to dry out. That sounds like the rescue for people with increased sebum production, but it has a catch. Because our body reacts with a protective function when something is withdrawn from it. In a nutshell, the more you wash your hair, the more sebum your scalp will produce. What follows is a vicious cycle of washing and re-greasing.

6. You keep grasping your hair

If you keep touching your hair, running your way through your mane, the effect is similar to combing with a dirty brush. Headgear such as hats or headbands also stick your hair to the oily scalp and ensure that it regreases faster.
