But he also shares that the issue may not be excess oil after all. “Often, people think they have an oily hair type or oily scalp when in reality it’s buildup from products or shampoo.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Should you condition your hair if it’s oily?

Yes, but … “Always keep conditioner away from your scalp,” Maine explains. Apply conditioner from the middle to ends of your hair, and that’s it. Any higher will just add to the greasy appearance.

Is it bad to wash your hair every day?

If you don’t have to, it can be nice to give your hair a day or two in between washes. But if you must shampoo every day, stick with one of the gentle, balancing formulas above, like Kevin Murphy’s.

Does my shampoo cause buildup?

“A lot of people experiencing excess oil are unaware that their shampoo can be contributing to this issue,” Maine says. This includes moisturizing agents in the shampoo that build up over time and can make your hair appear greasy.” If you’ve recently swapped shampoos and are suddenly seeing extra oil, or if you’ve been oily for a while and haven’t changed up your shampoo, the fix might be as simple as making a switch.
