Hair Solutions: How To Degrease Oily Hair Naturally

Make greasy, limp locks come to life with everyday ingredients.

You Will Need:
Dickinson's Witch Hazel
SmartMouth Mouthwash

Face Secrets Premium Cotton Rounds
Coloplast Inc. Gentle Rain Mild Shampoo
1/2 tsp. Walgreens Aloe Vera Gel

1 tbsp. Lemon Juice Facial Cleansing Foam
1 tsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
Distilled Water
Power IQ Turbo Hair Dryer
Johnson's Baby Powder
1 shot vodka (optional)

Step 1: Pre-shampoo astringent
Apply an astringent before you shampoo. Mix equal parts witch hazel and mouthwash and apply to the scalp with cotton pads.

Step 2: Make degreasing shampoo
Make your own degreasing shampoo by mixing mild shampoo with aloe vera gel and lemon juice. Lather and leave shampoo on for five minutes. Use transparent shampoo. It has fewer ingredients that weigh down oily hair.

Step 3: Rinse
Use an apple cider rinse after you shampoo. Mix apple cider vinegar with a quart of distilled water. This gets rid of residue. You can also mix a shot of vodka with one quart water for a degreasing rinse.

Step 4: Dry hair
Blow-dry your hair in the opposite direction of growth to give oily hair much needed body.

Step 5: Freshen with baby powder
Sprinkle baby powder onto your scalp between washes. Wait five minutes and comb through.
