The hairbrush is your friend
If you sometimes overlook the hairbrush, it can be a great ally in your fight against oily hair. When you brush your hair, the brush distributes the sebum along your lengths, which limits excess on the scalp and hydrates the lengths.
So we brush our hair every day, with a comb or a wooden brush, head upside down to loosen the roots, from the tips to the roots to avoid creating knots and breaking the hair. Have you always heard that you shouldn't use a bristle brush? This is true for the iron pimples, which attack the scalp, which therefore secretes sebum to protect itself. No risk with the wooden pins which massage the scalp to stimulate blood flow
It might be a terrible step for you, but you have to face the facts, you have to cut it. There is a very simple reason for this need. It is more than likely that your ends are badly damaged and a broken hair cannot be repaired, being dead material. When advertisements boast of being able to repair split ends, they only talk about depositing silicone in damaged parts of the hair for a dressing effect. No repair therefore. And that's normal since a broken hair is bound to stay that way.
Cutting your hair will help speed up the transition phase, since your lengths can never look as good as healthy hair. If cutting your hair is really too much of a hassle, do it gradually until all the unreachable material is gone.
Dry hair suffers from a sebum deficit right from the root. They therefore lack the hydration that this natural and free treatment is supposed to provide to strengthen them in their length. Your goal will be to make up for this lack. If you have to treat the lengths as soon as the transition with moisturizing and nourishing treatments, you can apply Argan, olive, shea butter, sesame oil or a natural mixe for dry hair
Known for its washing and softening properties, rhassoul is the ally of oily hair because of its many minerals which absorb and regulate excess sebum. Presented in bulk in powder form, it can also play a soothing role for scalps prone to dandruff or prone to itching.
Rhassoul is not only reserved for oily hair. Because it restores volume, shine and softness to the hair, it is also very suitable for fine hair and dry hair. Natural, it has the advantage of not containing any surfactant (note: a detergent agent, generally responsible for the formation of the foam of "classic" shampoos), which makes it a product appreciated by followers of no-poo, this method of washing hair without shampoo.
How to use rhassoul?
Rhassoul can be used as a hair mask.
The right recipe: mix the rhassoul powder in a bowl with a little lukewarm water until you get a smooth paste. Remember to use wooden utensils, because the metal alters the properties of the clay. Then apply the paste obtained on the hair previously combed, the rhassoul will be eliminated more easily. Apply the mask to the roots of the hair so that it absorbs excess sebum. Finish with the ends. Very lightly massage the scalp, then leave to act for a quarter of an hour. Rinse thoroughly while brushing hair to remove all clay residue.
Oily roots and dry ends
For those who do, you might be surprised, but there is no such thing as mixed hair. Or to be more exact: are not supposed to exist. This is because your scalp either produces too much sebum or it does not produce enough. The in-between is a paradox as only the petrochemical industry is capable of producing it (sulphates cause seborrhea but at the same time dry out the lengths that cannot benefit from the sebum because of the silicones ...). Anyway, if you are in this situation you will have to apply a method that is also mixed: dry shampoo to space out the washes, brushing and intense care mask on the lengths but especially not on the scalp. or with rhassoul clay in the case you Already switch to natural shampoo. And over time your problem should go away.
