The Perfect Shampoo for Oily Hair


I get greasy hair ridiculously fast and as much as it pains me to admit it, I just do. I struggle in winter especially, because my scalp feels dehydrated yet still oily, and whenever I wear a beanie the situation escalates quickly because the hair's greasing process somehow increases rapidly. Dry shampoo can be my friend but having dark hair makes it a struggle because I always find it hard to get rid of all the grey cast. 

I actually tried the ones that are targeted for darker hair colours and somehow they didn't sit well with my hair. If you have any suggestions though do let me know in the comments. I'm always up to try new things. 

Back to my story... 

Recently I noticed a visible improvement, and at first I could't really pinpoint what it was. Why was my hair suddenly not a grease ball by day 2?*insert thinking emoji here* 
 I realised only later that a new addition to my shower-time routine was to thank. The Paul Mitchell Clarifying Shampoo is pretty much the secret potion to happiness if you have oily hair. I can now get to day 4 and my hair still looks good, or way better than it would if I wasn't using it. 

The product itself is clear, it smell of citrus and I usually go for two small rounds with it just to make sure I get rid of all the dirt and any remaining hair products I may have used. My hair feels extra bouncy and light afterwards and it really brings out a healthy shine. I also noticed more body and volume in general. 

I'm not usually someone who sticks to one shampoo as I like to experiment but this one may actually become a permanent addition to my haircare collection.

  1. I might give this a try however I used to find my hair got greasy very quick so I tried the method of riding through it by deliberately only washing my hair twice a week and wearing a hat/headscarf the days I thought my hair looked really bad and it actually worked... I think there is something behind the idea of training your hair into becoming less greasy ... I however could just be lucky in that I don't produce as much sebum so what works for me might not work for everyone xx

  4. I have been using the Faith in Nature Aloe Vera shampoo and conditioner for a while now, and it works great for cleaning my scalp. However the oil quickly returns, so I still have to wash my hair everyday. Maybe I will try this one, and see if it leaves my hair clean for longer. It definitely sounds good :)

  5. I love Paul Mitchell products but I haven't gotten around to trying this one yet. After I run out of my shampoo I'll pick this one up! I'm currently loving the Paul Mitchell instant moisture daily shampoo and conditioner.

  7. Clarifying shampoos are great but I'm not sure if it should be used regularly as they tend to strip the scalp off the natural oil/sebum which keeps it healthy. I personally use a clarifying shampoo after weeks of using hair products like heat protectants, sprays etc which build up on scalp over time and prevent it from breathing. :) x

    1. It really depends on the intensity :) This one i haven't found harsh on my scalp but in the past I have had experiences with shampoos literally stripping down my oils. I have dehydrated skin all over so if this was harsh I would have noticed straight away :) x

  8. I love the sound of this! I've just started using an O&M detox shampoo which is perfect for really giving your hair a good clean!

  12. Great post. I also have oily hair and double wash. I'm currently using Redken (which I didn't realize was what my stylist used until I realized it smelled/felt like something I recognized).

    I am glad that you wash your hair every few days. It's important to note that clarifying shampoo should NOT be used daily, but rather 1-2x/week. This is because over-use (or over-shampooing) in general can strip the hair of it's healthy balance of oils, thereby causing it to go into "protective mode" and produce MORE. It's really about a healthy balance with your shampooing!
    (Sorry if this is unsolicited advice.)

    Cherish :)

  13. This is not for me as my hair doesn't get oily. If my scalp wouldn't get itchy I think I don't need to wash my hair for weeks...x

  15. I love Paul Mitchell products! This sounds great for oily hair, I don't suffer from oily hair as my hair is dry and curly so I'm all about putting the oil on it, so I doubt this would be a shampoo I would reach for regularly but I think it would be great for getting rid of product build up every now and again too. Also on the dry shampoo front have you tried Bouffe? It's a dry spray which is different to a dry shampoo and comes in a brown shade, it gives the illusion of bigger, thicker hair but also absorbs the grease so works well in replacement of one. It doesn't really have a scent like dry shampoos do though but it might be worth a try xx
