Thank you so much for all your help.

I saw your book and it really help me a lot.
I have a question about my will be great if you can help me with that.
My hair is very oily. I have to wash it after every alternate day.
Is there any way or any shampoo for that?

Thank you so much for all your help.

Thank you for writing, I am so glad our eBook Clear ANY Skin Problem Naturally was helpful for you!

I understand, I have thin, fine hair and I need to wash it every day, otherwise it begins to look dark and flat, although I'm not sure if my hair would technically be considered greasy! (You can read my saga of my hair problems at our hypoallergenic shampoo page.)

There are three different options you have for dealing with oily hair. One is to start nutritionally, making sure you are eating plenty of healthy foods, minimizing fried foods, greasy foods, processed foods and toxins in your diet.

It will also be helpful to make sure you are getting enough essential fatty acids. This is really important for healthy, balanced hair and skin care.

Foods like flax seed, salmon, walnuts or a good quality, pure fish oil have the highest amounts of essential fatty acids. Avocado is also very nice and if eaten with other vegetables will help your body to absorb more skin healthy nutrients!

It is difficult to find a good quality fish oil that does not have a lot of toxins. I like the Omega 3 DHA fish oil from Xtend Life which is very pure.

Another approach is to use some natural remedies for oily hair, which can help your scalp to more easily cleanse the excess oil. Here are a few...

  • Vinegar and water rinse - add a teaspoon or two of vinegar to a half cup of water, and place on your hair for a half hour before you shampoo.

  • Tea and lemon rinse - good for brunettes, but will darken blonde hair! Try it with just lemon if you are blonde. Brew one cup of tea, add the juice of one lemon and let cool. Apply to your hair a half hour before shampooing. Rinse well and shampoo as usual.

  • Aloe Vera and Lemon - add a 2 teaspoons of lemon juice and a on teaspoon of aloe vera gel to a third a cup of your regular shampoo, and shampoo as usual.

  • Natural Mayonnaise makes a great hair conditioner for some types of mildly oily hair. The natural fats and egg help to condition hair, and the vinegar or lemon juice helps to "de-grease" the hair. Try this on a day when you don't need to go out of the house, to see how your hair responds!!

    Finally, it is helpful to use a gentle hypoallergenic shampoo that will not irritate your scalp, eyes or skin. Choose one that you can use every day if needed. A gentle shampoo, even if it not specifically intended for oily hair, is better for anyone who needs to wash their hair often.

    When you are shampooing, massage your scalp gently which will remove additional oil from your scalp.

    Some people with oil hair find that they don't need any conditioner. Others still need a little, but find it works best if you apply the conditioner only to the ends of the hair, not your scalp.
