For Oily Hair and Scalp

We really want to get rid of oily hair. There are many reasons why this occurs, some of them could be natural and genetics, while others came from externals factors like excessive use of wrong hair care products, pollution, dirt and humidity. Dealing with oily hair is bit frustrating because you cannot go for any styles for your hair. For excessive oily hairs it would be better to avoid conditioners. Recommended shampoos could be:

Biotique Bio Green Apple Fresh Daily Purifying Shampoo & Conditioner

Its mild, pleasant smelling, leaves the hair good. Wash your hair after oil massaging your scalp for about 20 minutes. It leaves your hair smooth and clean. Also the smell is very mild and nice after wash. But it will not give any special effects to my hair like a glow or silky shine, but it makes hair really soft and healthy.

Its very difficult to manage dry and frizzy hair. It becomes difficult to set your hair for styles you love.

Dryness of hair and scalp will be more during winter season.

Hair Problem: Dandruff

During winter season mostly we suffer from dandruff problems and we get confused with choosing our shampoos. This results in itching of scalp, irritation and it also affects the scalp. One tips to follow is while applying the conditioner apply only to the ends of your hair. Don’t touch it on scalp. Use these shampoos to reduce dandruff and dry scalp.
