Instead of washing your hair on a daily basis, cut down to washing it twice a week. On days you don’t wash it, rinse your hair with cold or warm water or use a dry shampoo (such as baby powder) to absorb some of the oils.
2. Use warm oil to moisturise your scalp and hair. There are hot-oil products on the market but you can also use olive oil and make your own. Warm it slightly and massage into your scalp and hair. Leave it on your hair for one to two hours and then shampoo out. Don’t worry if you don’t get every bit of the oil out of your scalp; it will continue to moisturise and condition your hair and scalp.
