HOW STYLING PRODUCTS CAN AFFECT GREASY HAIR

Styling products may help you get a great hairstyle, shine and hold, but if your hair tends to be a little greasy, here are a few lookouts to help keep that style fresh.

Styling product buildup

Styling products help you achieve a fashionable look, but some might contain ingredients that can irritate a sensitive scalp.

Even if you’re not typically sensitive to an ingredient, Head & Shoulders’ men’s styling collection’s formulated to be extra kind to your scalp and those strands. Just make sure you cleanse thoroughly between styles to avoid product build-up that can irritation.

Sometimes styling product build-up can be visible too, and can be easily mistaken for dandruff.

The effect on greasy hair

If you have greasy or oily hair, make sure you cleanse tresses before using styling products to avoid a greasy look. Because greasy hair is already oily, adding styling products can make it appear worse by trapping dirt and oil.
