I've always thrown some baby powder in there to absorb excess oil between washings. :)

i started having this problem after I had my DD. After I wash and dry my hair it still looks greasy!! I stopped using conditioner..and i have also tried the baby powder thing..nothing is really helping me though.

Wash with apple cider vinegar......it stinks but it works. I only had to do it once.

is that all you use is just apple cider vinegar..not shampoo or conditioner? you only used it once and it made your hair not look greasy anymore?

Honestly it was weird, about 3 months ago my hair got really oily (never had that issue before) at first I thought I didn't rinse the conditioner out, so the next shower I scrubbed the shit out of my hair.....still instantly oily. After a google search apparently it's really common....the weird thing was almost all the posters I came across were 27 (my age) anywho, I read about apple cider vinegar, so the next shower I used that on the top of my head, then shampood and conditioned (b/c it f**king stinks)......got out, no oil at all and haven't had any issues since.

I'm going to try that...i never had this issue until I had my daughter..my hair always looked so beautiful and I could literally go two or three days without washing it and it still looked pretty lol.

I'm so glad to know someone else is having this issue...not that I want you to go through it but you know what I mean! haha. I've been dealing/bitching about this too and I couldn't figure it out. No matter how much I rinse my hair on the top the second day is looks like I could fry an egg on it. :( Let me know if anything works for you because I can't keep going through cans of dry shampoo and my hair is super long and its a pain to know I would have to wash it every day.

Tea tree shampoo! Best stuff in the world for oily hair can be spendthrift I buy a 1 liter bottle at the salon for $20 and it lasts about 4-5 months! Since I lost my ovary I have had pregnant hair... LOL this has been the only product that's helped. You can get it at Walmart salonsFred Meyers great clips and super supplements

I thought I was going crazy!!! Glad I'm not the only one! Before I could go 5 days without shampooing before my hair would get greasy, and now the second it dries it feels disgusting! I was thinking about trying ACV, think I will next shower. It's driving me nuts, I've never had greasy hair :(

apple cider vinegar :) I had heard it was good for removing and stripping all the oils and nasty stuff from the environment from your hair :)
