Most of us have hair problems especially because it gets greasy and laden with dandruff almost immediately after it is washed. The first rule for having a beautiful-looking hair that does not need so frequent washing is to try washing it twice or three times a week and not daily. It is not as hard as it seems, because what we don't
know is that the more we wash our hair, the more rapidly it will grow oily.
The oily substance that leads to greasy hair is called sebum and is produced by the sebaceous glands in the hair follicles traced in the scalp. We should not think that frequent wash of our hair will remove the sebum, because this is wrong: biologically, sebum has the role of protecting our hair from getting too dry or dehydrated and it also gives the hair's natural shine. When sebum is removed from the hair by washing, the sebaceous glands will produce an excessive amount of sebum in order to make up for the previous loss. That is how our hair is depleted of natural shine and moisture.
Hair care should be done mainly on natural basis, as the cosmetic products mostly over-load it with chemical moisturizers that lead to a greasy hair. Nevertheless, we should be aware of the type of hair we have and use adequate natural remedies for dry, greasy, frizzy hair etc.
Dry hair is usually the hair that has not a sufficient amount of natural moisturizer and oil. This can be caused by over-exposure to the sun without protecting the hair, by excessive washing - especially with harsh chemical substances, excessive use of styling products and hot styling methods (blow drier, heat iron), excessive dying of the hair etc.
The solution rests in natural moisturizers, such as natural oils, and nutritious remedies. The jojoba oil is much recommended for regaining the shine and brightness of your hair, as the molecular structure of this oil is almost similar to the one of sebum, the natural hair moisturizer. It can be used as an overnight as well as a daily treatment for the hair.
Other types of natural oils that provide moisture for your hair are: olive, ylang-ylang, almond, avocado, rosemary essential oil, wheat germ oil, emu oil, shea oil and herbal oils such as: nettle oil, plantain oil, burdock oil etc. These are very efficient, as they provide a wide range of nutrients, antioxidants and vitamins vital for the hair and scalp. You can also mix one of these oils with honey and then apply it as a mask for the hair.
You can prepare a very efficient natural tonic for the hair by simply mixing 2 egg yolks and beat the paste until it is foamy. Then massage the entire scalp and hair with it and, when done, rinse it off with warm water. The egg is a very nutritious product, as it is a source of 11 essential nutrients, vitamin A and D. Mayonnaise is also beneficial for dry hair.
Applying tomatoes slices, tomato juice or tomato paste to your hair will enhance the natural PH of the hair due to the vitamin C in these vegetables.
Bananas, coffee and chamomile tea will also help your hair shine the natural way.
Besides these natural remedies, be sure to have a balanced diet, rich in fruits and vegetables that supply our organism with all the nutrients it needs and also try herbal teas that do wonders for our health. And do not forget that hair belongs to the body, just like any other organ, therefore what works for the metabolic system will surely work for our hair, too!

Moist soft hair, rich in sebum, but with a noticable STINK
Dry hard hair, lacking in sebum, but with noticable CLEAN smell
I choose the second option.

|Comment #1.3 by: kelly on 21 Feb 2011, 23:19 GMT|
hair stinks from the products you put into it. a lot of over the counter products have animal fats as filler, which definitely stink after a day or two. i wash my hair every week or so and take a light body shower every day. i use coconut oil in my hair and on my skin, and i use natural deodorant. i work out every morning before my shower, and i always smell and feel fresh and great. i choose that.

Your hair wont smell bad if you wash every other day, or even every three days. You can always just rinse your hair out (no shampoo) and just condition and then wash every third day. your hair will smell good and stay shiny. Or try a dry shampoo or baby powder to absorb oil. Then brush your hair, and then use some sort or leave in conditioner to get you through the days you don't wash your hair.
Remember no one walks around trying to smell your hair. lol =)

when using eggs/ mayo should i massage my scalp to or just the starnds??
|Comment #3.1 by: jo on 04 Feb 2009, 08:05 GMT|
Just the hair, particularly the ends. It would be much difficult to remove the mayo smell if you rub it onto your scalp. On the other hand, your hair will stink anyways so no problem massaging it onto scalp.
|Comment #3.2 by: crow_head on 17 Mar 2012, 14:32 GMT|
into your scalp! your scalp absorbs all the nutriants and then passes it down through the hair. Always make sure you rub your oil of choice through the scalp first, then gently massage it through the rest of the hair or comb through. Twist it up, clip, let it sit for a while, rinse out, and BOOM! You're done.:)

If you run everyday it would probly be a good idea to wash your hair every other day to get the grim out. If this makes it dry, skip to every two days but condition your hair every day to give it that glow.

You could always use baking soda to wash your hair (does a VERY good job on my hair) which is not supposed to strip your hair of of excess oil but just the visible oil.
|Comment #7 by: zina on 08 Jun 2009, 16:04 UTC|| reply to this comment|
for dry hair and damaged hair try soaing olive oil for a couple hours or keep it overnight and then the next day put egges the yolk part in the hair for a couple hours and then rinse it with the white part of the eggs and then shamppo and conditions as ussuall. Do this 2 times a month and your hair will be hearthy like never before.

How do you wash your hair with baking soda? I'd like to try it out. Thanks.
|Comment #8.1 by: Aly on 06 Jan 2010, 01:23 GMT|
You combine a couple tablespoons of baking soda with a bit of water and work the mixture into your scalp. I use two tablespoons, but I have long hair. Use less for shorter hair. Add just enough water to make a paste, a few drops, really.

I think that this is discusting about the mayo and eggs in your hair ewwwww but i wash my hair every other day and the day i dont wash it i put baby powder on my brush and brush through my hair. It gets out all of the oil that got in my hair that day and my hair stays soft by not shampooing it every day! hope this helps.

Biotin is a cheap vitamin u can purchase at walmart and it took me about 4 months to see results but it thickens hair like pregnant women and it also helps your skin conditions and thickens and quickens your nail growth, its great...the only thing that helped mine and it also helps moisten dry hair too so try it but be patient it takes months to start showin a difference!

if you have thin hair that has a tendency to get oily wash it EVERYother day, not two or three days. if your hair has a tendency to retain a bad smell or feel, then you should be washing it often. but the point of the artice is to say that giving your hair a rest from the shampoo, even for a mere day helps to restore the natural ph of your hair which the detergents and chemicals of shampoo take away. when your hair is lower then the natural ph it becomes dry, and without shine, body, and luster. it wont feel or look good. it all depends on your hairtype, you be the judge. girls with curly, typicallly dry hair even go so far as to wash their hair once a week. my sister does this. when she gets in the shower other days she does wet it, because water also has some natural cleansing properties. she comes out, puts a little bit of product in it and leaves it to dry naturally. because of her hair type and the time and effort she puts into her hair, it is not dirty, oily, greasy, or laden with dandruff. it always feels and smells nice. its all about finding the routine that can fir your specific hair needs and schedule.

Burdock oil (bur oil). Massage into hair roots, wash with it, moisten with it, do whatever you can or want with it, but do your best, it will help. Try to find the purest extracts, like the Russian bur oil for hair. I've heard that some German manufacturers add something else - you don't need any chemical rubbish.
And for God's sake don't wash your hair with ordinary and/or salon shampoos! Find certified natural cleansers with no alcohols except for cetyl alcohol, stearyl alcohol, cetearyl alcohol, lauryl alcohol, myristyl alcohol and behenyl alcohol that are "fatty" alcohols. No lauryl sulphate, or other foamy stuff. Until you find chemical-free remedies don't wash you hair then, just rinse it.
Don't be afraid to make your hair uber greasy with oil, it easily washes off with egg yolk. Just break an egg carefully to not damage the yolk and let the white drain off; break/mix the yolk in a cup and bring it to the shower and wash with it like with a shampoo; the oil won't stay. But keep massaged-into-roots oil in your hair for a long time, like overnight. Or at least for an hour wrapped in a warm towel (warmth opens up pores in the scalp).
A girlfriend of mine grew hair on damaged, bald spots by using bur oil. Another woman didn't benefit the slightest from it, but onion juice helped her big time (never used onion juice, but can imagine the smell!).

When all of you are saying not to wash your hair every day, are you actually saying not to shower/bathe in any way? or just not use shampoo conditioner?
|Comment #16 by: Sunny on 10 Sep 2009, 18:29 UTC|| reply to this comment|
You must be joking Mike... They are referring to using shampoo and/or conditioner on your hair. In my opinion you should take a bath every day. But, yet again in some countries this is not a custom.
|Comment #17 by: leslie on 11 Sep 2009, 19:13 UTC|| reply to this comment|
the manyonaise and egg thing works pretty good for twice a month!
shampoo it every other day or even more days in between if your hair is super dry
use some kind of mousturizing conditioner...i really like the paul mitchell products! stocked full of them at home.
straightening your hair, no matter how much you think you need it, only fries your hair and you could choose other hair styles, and maybe only straighten your hair once or twice a week.
scrunching my hair is what i chose for my other hairstyle.
and when you do straighten your hair use a heat protector for god sakes!
but still shower everyday!

I have extremely dry/coarse/thick/ hair... oh and it's curly!!
I shampoo my hair once a week and condition it as necessary. If I am very active and sweaty then I'll rinse my hair well and then condition it. On weeks where I only wet my hair twice (one shampoo/condition and one condition) I straighten my hair twice. My hair is straight for 2-4 days and does not get oily or smell. If I am wetting my hair more often than twice a week I wear my hair curly or wavy and make sure to use products that don't try my hair out.
Biosilk is a good oil for your hair. It smells nice and isn't too heavy. Also, get a good straightener and use heat protectant!!! If you spend money on a good straightener, then first of all, it will last longer and second of all, you don't have to run it through your hair as much, thus lessening the damage.
Leave-in conditioners are your best friend if you have hair like me. Sometimes I will even put conditioner in my hair, get out of the shower and let it sit until it starts to dry and then I will rinse it out... it works wonders!
If you possible, let hair air dry as much as time allows. I try to shower the night before and let my hair dry overnight.
Please do shower everyday... you need to... your hair doesn't always.

I am a swimmer so I swim every single day, and I wash my hair every time I shower which is every time I come home from practice. I know its not good to wash your hair everyday, and yes my hair is very dry, but would it be any better to leave all of that chlorine in my hair? I thought about just conditioning my hair some days and not shampooing, but that chlorine is still in there and I feel like that dries out my hair just as much as washing it every day does. What should I do?
|Comment #24.1 by: Princess on 28 Jun 2010, 05:35 GMT|
Before you go swimming, comb your hair around your head (use bobby pins to stay in place), wrap you hair in saran wrap and put a swimming cap over it. You wont have to worry about getting chlorine in your hair. I know it is weird when you think about doing it everyday but the more you do it, the faster you will get it done.

I have always had very dry curly hair to the point where I can jump in a pool and my hair would hardly be wet. My hair does not hold any moisture what so ever and I haven't found one product out there that can help me. I may try the egg/mayo thing just to see. I have stopped chemically straightening my hair and am working with my curls but I did come across a product called ouidad it helps people with curly hair so it doesn't frizz this product works like a charm but still no help for moisturizing. Any ideas I would greatly appreciate it.

Coconut oil works soooo well on my hair. Just mix it with warm water, and add to your hair (even scalp, prevents dandruff), depending on your hair dryness degree even daily. This also helps prevent frizz.
Wrt people telling you how beautiful you are, but your hair... I recommend a smile, and the courage to tell them that they are being invasive, and that you don't like it. Really, it is your hair and none of their business.
There is a book for Obama type of people :) called "Curly like me", but it also works for all-black or all-white curls, we (family of all colours and curls...) have tried it.

Exactly the information I wanted to know. Buying hair products that seem to be rich in wax do nothing but weigh my hair down. Rarely do I use a conditioner and I try to limit blow drying to 2 minutes. Even with these measures my hair gets dry if I am in the sun for a prolonged time. Natural products are so much cheaper and I feel like I am doing something good for both the planet and my pocket book when I go natural. Thanks for the information. JM

This is great information. I'm reading the comments and a lot of people are leaning toward wanting to wash their hair the conventional way. If you are going to use shampoo, just buy the sulphate free kind and you will save your hair from the stripping effect of suphates--a noxious commercial substance only used in excess to create the illusion of "clean" by having the product produce excess bubbles!

Vitamin C has nothing to do with pH. pH is to do with hydrogen and determines whether something is an acid or an alkali. Tomatoes are acidic and would actually damage your hair if constantly used, in the same way as acid rain. Tomatoes are useful to neutralize bleach after colouring. You'd think you might want to mention that. Since rosemary, the MOST beneficial herb for naturally shiny hair has also not been mentioned in this article, I somehow think it's been made up.

Try using argan oil. Try using Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan oil. It's a natural oil that isn't greasy AT ALL and it's also a heat protectant so double benefits there (I know this brand has the heat protectant in it, not sure about others). Argan oil is really beneficial for hair and it's especially good at repairing and strengthening dry and brittle hair. Go to beyas.ca where they sell it and you'll see, it's just full of benefits!

Never, EVER, rinse egg mixtures or mayonnaise from your hair with "warm water"...you'll end up with a head full of scrambled egg that's nigh on impossible to remove. I know, because this happened to me when I was 14 years old!
The loveliest. simplest, most 'taming' and moisturising home made product I use (and I have waist-length, dark hair, prone to dryness) is this:
I drop a SMALL dollop of honey (about the size of a pea) into a 30ml spray bottle, then I fill it with a (cooled) tea mixture, made up of 1 x organic chamomile tea bag and 1 x organic peppermint tea bag.
Shake thoroughly, then lightly mist the ends of dry hair, as well as elbows, face and anywhere your skin needs moisturising. You won't believe how soft your skin and stubbornly dry hair will feel with just a few simple spray mists of this!
I make a fresh one up every morning and carry it with me wherever I go.
This is such a simple home made product, yet it's been the most powerfully effective and helpful to me. Yes, honey CAN be used - but only in the tiniest of proportions and heavily dispersed with a water base.

Jojoba oil.. Put on hair before washing. Or put on over night with shower cap on. Then wash in the morning. Best stuff on earth - even cleared my acne

I can attest to jojoba oil miracles. Our gorgeous daughter did not get hair until she was 5. Docs thought she had ectodermal displasia. One of them from India suggested rubbing jojoba on her hair scalp and in hair. 6 months later it is lustrous, lots of it and long. (she has cute natural spiral curls and when you pull them, the hair is to her mid back.) she is no longer called baby head at school. Jojoba oil - you rock!!!

l have flakes in my hair

I have dark, thick hair and used to have a problem with dandruff. I eventually found a website that said that dandruff is caused by fungus. A baking soda and water mixture has fungicidal properties. I now use it first when I wash my hair and use a long-nose bottle to get it down into my scalp. I follow this with an apple cider vinegar rinse. Using this routine REALLY helped with my flakes and I've been doing it for at least 4 months. The blogs where I read about this from also mentioned only washing every couple of days. At first I could not stand to do this just because it didn't look right and it felt dirty. Recently I tried a hot oil treatment - Queen Helene Jojoba hot oil treatment for $3 a treatment from Sally Beauty and just once has made an IMMEDIATE difference. I found baking soda and water to also help with (cured really) my psoriasis and toe-nail fungus.

This is such a great article and after the egg yoke solution in my horrid dry hair I'm now asked by all my friends how I got it so glossy. :P

Totally agreed with this! A good diet can do wonders to your dull and dry hair. Iron and protein should always be included in the diet. These things have a direct effect on our hair. Plus loads of water is must! In addition to these, a good shampoo should be used. I've had a problem of dull and dry hair. And that's when I started using Oriflame's Aloe Vera & Maracuja Soothing Shampoo and I'm really happy with the results.

Aftre two or three days washing your hair oil comes out naturally from your scalp.dont wash your hail till the oil goes through halfway to hairs.during this period massage your scalp with fingertips and brush(comb) your hair twice or three times a day if you can.apply any oil (i like coconut oil) in to your hairs and scalp before you need to wash your hairs.after 2-3 weeks you will see the results.

Climate (both atmospheric and mental :]) plays great role in the health of hair I guess.
