I really just want to make sure I’m doing this right and what’s going on is normal.
I have fine hair but a lot of hair! Friday will be week 3 day 1 for me, currently once a week I wash with water only and scrub/massage (not scratching with nails) and do the clamping process to help pull the oils down. I use warm-medium hot water for this first part, then I condition the ends of my hair and rinse my scalp and ends with cold water till my hair feels as clean as I can get it.
Every morning and night I massage my scalp, and rush the oils down my hair with a wooden brush. I’m vegan and really don’t want to get a boars hair brush, so if someone has a vegan brand they love please let me know!
Before my hair was a living walking grease pit, before this process I was lucky if I could get a second day of not washing. Now, I feel like the oil production of my hair has calmed down significantly. I can see the roots of my hair really aren’t that bad, though I just have so much grease build up on my hair that you can’t tell. Even to the touch the roots of my hair do not feel oily or gross. I’m not having problems with any odor or gluey feeling. It’s just really really oily.
Does anyone have a suggestion that would help get ride of the excess greasy off my hair? Or do I just need to be more patient? Last week I did try conditioning my hair root to tip and it actually helped removed some of the excess oil that my hair has been holding onto, by day 3 my hair was back to its greasy self. What have you guys found to help remove some of the excess grease/oils from your hair?
