Best shampoo for oily hair: Meet Nexxus’ Clean & Pure and Hydra-Light ranges
While having oily, greasy hair means you’re less prone to frizz, it can also be incredibly frustrating and time-consuming to care for, as you’re likely stuck in the annoying cycle of shampooing every day. Or perhaps you’ve tried and tested every dry shampoo out there to try to control oily locks when you’re short on time. But the truth is, if you want to combat your oily hair for good, you need to start in the shower.
Nexxus’ Clean & Pure range is specifically designed to gently remove product, dirt, and oil build-up from the hair and scalp, and should be your first port of call when it comes to treating oily hair. In addition to Clean & Pure, Nexxus’ Hydra-Light system injects lightweight moisture into fine hair, giving body without weighing it down.
The Clean & Pure range, combined with these smart hair care tips, will help you free yourself of oily hair for good.
Step 1: Check your water temperature
When your shower is too hot, it strips away the natural, protective oils in your hair and scalp. In other, non-oily hair types, this leads to dryness but in the case of oily strands, your scalp starts to overcompensate for that missing oil and produce even more. To try and keep a happy balance for your scalp, wash your hair in lukewarm water and finish with a cold rinse to close the hair cuticle at the end of your shower.
Step 2: Treat your scalp
It may feel like you’re washing your hair all the time, but the average shampoo doesn’t fully remove build-up from products, oil, and pollution, especially if you have a dry-shampoo habit.
Nexxus’ Clean & Pure Invigorating Detox Scalp Scrub detoxifies, purifies and rebalances your scalp and hair by removing impurities, including deep product and oil build-up.
The Scalp Scrub can either replace your Nexxus Clean & Pure Nourishing Detox Shampoo once a week as a deep clean on its own, or you can use it in conjunction by applying it first, followed by the shampoo, then massaging them into your scalp together before rinsing them both out.
Step 3: Swerve silicones
Silicones are a common ingredient in many standard shampoos – even those targeted towards oily hair – but if you’re prone to grease it’s best to avoid them. This is because silicones can build up in your hair over time, weighing it down and making it appear oilier quicker.
Nexxus’ lightweight Clean & Pure Nourishing Detox Shampoo and Conditioner contains 0% silicones, dyes, parabens and sulfates, which means it leaves no residue behind. Not only that, but it’s made with Nexxus’ PROTEINFUSION blend, and is formulated with essential ingredients that purify and revive all hair types to recover your hair’s natural shine and movement.
Invest time in a detox system
Rather than relying on dry shampoo to combat oil, Nexxus’ first ever detox system, Clean & Pure, tackles the root cause of oil overproduction on the scalp. The products work to clear away excess oil, so it’s smart to use them in conjunction to see the best results.
First up, complementing the Scalp Scrub, Shampoo and Conditioner is the Nourishing Detox Conditioning Foam, which replenishes moisture and adds volume to fine and flat hair. This should be used in the shower post-shampoo, and rinsed out thoroughly. Then as a finishing touch, there’s the Nourishing Detox 5 In 1 Invisible Hair Oil. This provides five important and impressive benefits: extra nourishment, frizz protection, smoothness, shine and color protection.
Depending on your lifestyle and hair care routine, there are a few different ways to incorporate the 5 In 1 Invisible Hair Oil into your day: you can apply it to hair before stepping into the shower and cleansing with Clean & Pure Shampoo; you can mix a few drops with your Clean & Pure Conditioner and apply to damp hair in the shower before rinsing; or you can put it on dry hair after you style it, to tame flyaways and finish your look with gloss and shine that won’t leave your locks feeling greasy.
Add lightweight moisture as needed
While your roots may fall on the oily side, the same might not be true for the rest of your hair – it’s common for those with oily hair to also suffer from dry ends (unfair, yes). So how do you combat oil at the roots, but still hydrate the ends? Enter the Nexxus Hydra-Light system.
Designed to give finer hair the nourishment it needs without weighing it down, Hydra-Light Weightless Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner is the perfect partner to the Clean & Pure Detox routine. Use Hydra-Light when your hair is in need of an extra shot of hydration and your hair, from root to tip, will look better than ever.
