Greasy Hair can be frustrating and sometimes impossible to style (unless you are a fan of the retrospective look). It can also be difficult to figure out which products work well without adding extra fat. When it comes to the types of hair products available on your shelves, our dermatologists have recommended that people with greasy hair use mild shampoos and conditioners that contain lighter oils such as argan and jojoba, which are less likely to cause scalp buildup. In the meantime, the experts said that you should avoid hair care products on greasy hair with ingredients such as occlusive oils (which act as a sealant to retain moisture), parabens, phthalates, and synthetic fragrances. (Side note: Research on some of these ingredients, such as parabens and phthalates, is somewhat differentiated. If you're curious, you can read more about it here.)
