Greasy-looking hair can be a pain, but you don’t have to live with it. Find out how to quickly and easily combat greasy hair.

If your hair has a tendency to look greasy, the most important thing to do is to wash your hair regularly with the right shampoo.

How often should you wash your hair?
Every couple of days is usually enough for most hair types. If you notice oil building up more quickly, you might need to wash your hair more frequently.

You may also want to wash more frequently when using leave-on creams and oils, since these could contribute to greasy-looking build up. It all depends on your hair and scalp type.

How does shampoo get rid of oils?
When lathered, the shampoo molecules bind to dirt and oils and remove them from the hair and scalp. Washing your hair in warm water helps to loosen the dirt and oils, making the shampoo more effective.

You can get rid of excess oils in just one wash too.

Our Instant Oil Control Shampoo is specially designed to eliminate excess oil, grease and dirt for a clean that you can feel instantly.

Using Head & Shoulders regularly will help keep greasy hair at bay. Just use it every time you wash your hair and you’ll have beautifully clean, visibly flake-free hair.¹

Keep your hair looking its best by using a conditioner too. Our Instant Oil Control Conditioner will give you protection against dandruff, as well as weightless conditioning for that extra smooth, healthy look.
