ACV is really good at balancing the Ph balance of your scalp and controlling the oil production. All you have to do is dilute ACV with water, take 1 part ACV and 8 parts water. Pour is through your hair, make sure your entire scalp is covered, leave it on like that and rinse after few minutes.

Dont overwash your hair
It’s understandable that you feel the need to wash your hair daily when you have greasy hair, but its not the best idea, it is actually counterproductive. You should limit your hair washes to every other day and try not to wash twice in a day. Over washing your hair can dry them out and it signal the glands to produce more oil which is not what you want! so keep the washing to every other day.
Dont overuse the conditioner
If you have oily scalp but dry ends, you cant completely stop using conditioner, just make sure you limit the application of conditioner to the ends of the hair and NOT the scalp. When your hair feels too soft or too thick – that’s the sign that you are going overboard with the conditioner.
One of the causes of greasy hair is not having proper diet, whatever you eat will immediately have an impact on your hair and skin. Make sure you eat healthy. Try eating a balanced diet that contains leafy greens, protein and omega 3 fatty acids.
