Abyssian Routine For Oily Scalp

Everyone's scalp can get oily at times due to the natural oils secreted. While some oil (sebum) is necessary for healthy hair, an excess can cause issues such as greasy, dirty, and heavy hair. In certain cases, excessively oily hair and oily scalp may be a sign of a skin disorder. It's essential to maintain a balance in order to support healthy hair.

What causes an oily scalp?

What if I have an oily scalp and dry hair?

What if I have an oily and itchy scalp?

What if I have an oily scalp plus hair loss?

So, how do I fix these problems naturally?

Step 1

If you want to opt for a more conventional treatment option, you can choose a shampoo that is effective against an oily scalp. 

We recommend ourSunday Detox Exfoliating Shampoo.

 

This shampoo is specially formulated to remove flakes gently whilst cleansing  any excess build up on the scalp as well as chemical residue. It's perfect for oily and dandruff prone hair. 

This product restores the scalp's natural pH balance whilst combing the benefits of dead sea salt minerals, microbiome-balancing essential oils, and our super wonder APISCALP™ celery seed oil-based active ingredient. The extracts from the celery seed oil  It's the first sulfate-free salt scrub on the market.

In our plant-derived formula, there are no parabens, SLSs, or phosphates. Our Apiscalp technology reduces scalp irritation, yeast, and fungal buildup and restores scalp health – making an oily, flaky scalp a thing of the past.

In a study by Sederma, a world leader in the field of active ingredients in the cosmetic industry – based on the mastery of biotechnology, fine chemistry and vegetal extraction – a panel of volunteers washed their hair with our APISCALP™ technology at least three times per week. Volunteers suffered from scalp disorders such as dandruff and/or itchy scalp. After 21 days, up to 93% of the volunteers had visibly less or no more dandruff. 

APISCALP™ is derived from the natural extract of extract ofapium graveolens (celery)seeds, titrated in senkyunolide, and obtained by the sustainable supercritical CO2 extraction process.

With APISCALP™, the scalp itching sensation is reduced on both oily scalp and dry scalp. The scalp recovers its optimal hydration while sebum production is reduced on an oily scalp. It's a miracle product you should try if you suffer from an oily, itchy scalp.

Wash your hair more often

If you have super oily hair, as much as it's counterintuitive, you may need to wash your hair more often. We are often told only to lather up3-4 times per weekbut if your scalp is producing too much oil and the balance isn't restored, you may need to gently remove the excess oil and debris daily.

Wash your hair less often

Or, if you already wash daily and your hair is greasy by the end of the day, then you might be overwashing, stripping your scalp's natural oils and not giving your scalp a chance to restore itself. If you have dry skin and an itchy scalp and oily hair, then you might be washing too often and you need to restore the natural oil balance which may mean a few unsightly and greasy days before your scalp restores itself. 

Shampoo your hair correctly

Although shampooing your hair seems like a no-brainer because you'll have washed your hair hundreds of times, shampooing incorrectly can damage your hair and lead to an oily scalp.

To wash correctly, gently work a small amount of shampoo into the roots only. Don't use your nails to create friction or breakage. Too much aggressive scrubbing can irritate the scalp and cause overproduction of oil.

Focus on your scalp and not the ends. Wash your scalp and don't apply shampoo to the ends and let the shampoo flow through the ends of the hair during the rinsing process.

Step 2

Just like improperly shampooing can lead to greasy hair, over conditioning can too. If you have greasy hair, you don't need to add heavy conditioner to the roots. Instead, condition your ends and rinse your hair thoroughly. 

We recommend our Daily Shield Superfood Conditioner.

 

Our plant sugar-based anti-pollution formula uses the antioxidants spirulina and pomegranate to provide a weightless, softening conditioner without silicone and with 97% plant-based ingredients. These superfood ingredients mean you get natural conditioning without the heavy buildup which means it can also be used on the scalp.

Protect

Flat irons and blow dryers do give a sleek finish but they can make your hair look greasy faster since you spend more time depositing oil from your fingertips. 

Try air drying with ourself-care hair towel to see if that makes a difference to over oil production.

If you really must use heat tools, use a heat protectant serum or spray such as  ourSupergloss Hair Serum or Silk Milk on the ends. It’s important to use a product that doesn't have unnatural ingredients that may  cause buildup.

Brush

Clean your hairbrush

If you don't think any of the above really applies to you, you may just be brushing your clean, freshly washed hair with a dirty hairbrush. Your brush can get a buildup of oil, styling products, dust, and just general yuckiness. Be sure to clean your brush and styling tools with a gentle soap or a bit of shampoo and clean out loose hair after brushing. 

Be kind to your hair

When washing, brushing, and/or styling, be gentle with your hair and scalp so you don't overstimulate it and cause it to secrete excess oil.
