The next time you have greasy hair, try an expert-approved trick before you hit the shower to scrub your scalp.
The hair hack only takes ten seconds, but will make your hair extra soft and may even limit oil production in the future.
Ex-hairstylist Amy, who doesn’t use her last name online, has a huge following of 145,000 on TikTok, where she shares precious hair secrets gleaned from years of experience.
A video showed Amy’s way of using greasy hair to her advantage.
If you have greasy hair after a hectic week or hot day, grab your brush and sit in front of the mirror before you shower.
First, Amy instructed, gently massage your entire scalp – just a few seconds is enough.
Go slowly and work your hands over the entire surface of your head, being careful not to tangle your hair with your hands or pull out any strands at the root.
“Remember to be gentle,” Amy warned.
Then grab your hairbrush. A brush with soft or mixed bristles works best for this.
Brush your hair from root to tip and slowly work the oil from your scalp down the lengths of your hair.
You should see a reduction in dryness at the ends of your strands, and if an oily scalp has left you with flat hair, agitating the oil could add volume.
Depending on your hair type, the quick massage and brushing trick can leave your hair looking flawless — and give you an excuse to put off wash day.
When done properly, according to Amy, massage not only reduces the appearance of oil but also promotes blood flow and potentially increases hair growth.
“I needed this,” said one grateful commenter. “My hair gets greasy very quickly and it’s really annoying.”
One viewer with oily hair said she’s already using a similar method and has seen results, although her family refuses if she skips a wash.
“My mom complains but then gets upset that my hair is growing faster than hers,” the woman wrote.
Even if you don’t see miracle growth and shine overnight, the gentle massage feels amazing,
“I relaxed just watching this!” wrote one commenter.
