Most digital and print publications have covered the topic of the following sentences: “The miracle treatments for dry hair”, “The best deeply moisturizing hair masks, or “5 tips to smoothen frizzy locks…” The point is, there seems to be endless of ways to combat brittle hair, but not that many fool proof hacks for people with oily hair scalp.

Suffering from a dirty hair complexion has probably made people devoted to daily hair washing to keep the greasy roots clean; an action that’s destined for failure in the long run. What happens is that over-washing deprives the hair of its natural oils and sets the scalp in a state to over-produce sebum, leaving hair to look and feel greasier once again the day after washing it.

There is actually one definite solution to restore the pH balance in the hair scalp. A type of “workout” routine for hair to regain its fresh look and feel. Here is how to set the hair into training and ban the grime once and for all:

Day 1

First day of oily hair boot camp starts with a thorough deep cleanse. According to several hair professionals, a clarifying shampoo has the best formula that’s strong enough to rinse dirt, oil and chemical build-up, and gentle enough to avoid stripping the hair of its natural oils.

Moroccanoil Clarifying Shampoo


Moroccanoil Clarifying Shampoo is a deep cleansing formula that restores hair to a weightless, healthy balance while conjuring away the signs of impurities, dullness and environmental build-up. Gently massage this sulphate-free argan, avocado and jojoba infused mix into the scalp, all while letting the water run through the hair. As soon as the water turns clear, you’re good to go.

Keep in mind that this substance is effective, yet harsh. So don’t use it more than once a week.

Day 2

Refrain from a daily washing regime. It’s challenging, especially if you have somewhere to be; in a meeting, at dinner with a friend or doing anything that involves social activities. Just hang in there and fight the urge to run a quick rinse through the hair. Additionally, investing in a solid dry shampoo is helpful on the quest to fresh and clear hair.

OUAI Dry Shampoo


Fast-absorbing, neutralizing and volume-building are just the few of the qualities packed in this can. Simply shake and blast the roots with OUAI Dry Shampoo, flip the hair over and ruffle it using the fingertips for that Va-Va-Voom effect.

Day 3

Almost there, just hang on for one more day without a rinse. This day will be the toughest one since you’ll most definitely either want to drown the hair in dry shampoo or poke it around with the fingertips, hoping to find a side that’s clean enough to show. DON’T! Since finger-to-hair contact will only make it worse by adding more oil, which is what no one wants nor needs at this point. To make things better, opt for a hair-do that suits the vexatious hair.

Reclaimed Vintage Inspired Heart Hair Pin


A cute hair pin is exactly what is needed to adjust and style a “messy hair, don’t care” look. A greasy complexion will just add an edgy texture to this chic hair do. Gather all of the hair and pull it all the way back to fight the urge of touching it as soon as it gets in the face. Then, pin the hair with a delicate vintage inspired heart pin by placing a messy bun at the top of the head, or styling it in a low chignon.

Day 4

The final step of hair-training! It wasn’t so bad, was it? Now it’s finally time for a well-deserved wash. But, before getting the hopes up; this final step includes rinsing hair with raw apple cider vinegar.

Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar


It’s known that apple cider vinegar is the go-to ingredient when it comes to body and skin care. The substance is rich in potassium and enzymes that keeps skin youthful, supports the immune system, removes toxins, and promotes digestion and pH balance. So, it’s pretty obvious that it should benefit the hair on our heads as well.

Work a small amount of Bragg apple cider vinegar into damp hair, gently massage the roots, and rinse it out thoroughly. The raw liquid will help restore the hair’s pH balance and remove build-up without depriving the hair of its natural oils and nutrients.

Here’s to surviving the first week of oily hair boot camp! Now repeat the routine and observe as the hair gets fresher, cleaner and more healthy-looking week by week.

SPF creams might be a foe to most because of its sticky consistency, unpleasant smell and greasy texture that leaves traces of white surplus on the body. Plus, having to remember to apply it on a daily basis and keep on reapplying it throughout the day does not sound all too appealing.

Nevertheless, staying shielded from the sun’s perilous UV-rays should be motivation enough. The sun is a lovely phenomenon that most people worship, but it’s important to understand that its lighting causes up to 90% of ageing, resulting in reduced elasticity, dark spots and a rough, wrinkly texture. Besides from the superficial damages, it also affects the health. A sunburn occurs when the ultraviolet rays have managed to penetrate through the deeper layers of the skin to harm or even kill skin cells. A frequent and long-lasting exposure to this will then eventually lead to skin cancer.

Last week, as summer is just around the corner, Glossier launched a new improved SPF formula called Invisible Shield SPF 35. The promises? – A sunscreen that is not sticky, greasy, heavy, pore clogging, drying, weird smelling, chalky or makeup interrupting – according to Glossier. The clear water gel formula is packed with microcapsules that are easily absorbed, helps prevent sun damage, protects from pollution and helps neutralize harmful free radicals inside the skin. That is a lot of pleasant reasons to encourage people to actually start wearing sunscreen.

Besides from the active microcapsules, the sunscreen contains H20, Vitamin E, Vitamin P, broccoli, aloe leaf extracts and sweet orange peel.

As skin slowly reduces the amount of collagen production with age, it loses its elasticity and availability of skin cell renewal. Collagen (a protective fibre that connects body tissue) consists of two essential amino acids, hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine, which provide collagen with the stability and capacity of holding tissue, muscle and organs together, as well as repairing cells damaged by outer factors – the sun, pollution, oxidative stress and free radicals.

As an alternative of deciding to take up collagen injections, there are a few natural ways to stall the process of ageing.


Water possesses uncountable benefits. Commonly known for keeping skin hydrated and nourished, the effects of water can also plump and smooth skin by enhancing the build-up of fibres and prolonging the life of skin cells. Its toxin rinsing qualities are also capable of instantly increasing skin’s collagen.

Whether opting for a lighter mechanical peeling or a more effective enzyme peeling, the treatment regrows a refined epidermis, deeply cleanses and purifies sebum clogged pores and increases blood circulation, stimulating cell renewal and boosts collagen production.

More effective types of exfoliation treatments can be achieved at a dermatologist’s office.

Treatment Enzyme Peel


The natural papaya enzymes in this highly-effective exfoliator gently sloughs off dead skin cells. In contact with water, the powder is activated and treats skin to an appealing lustre, soft and even texture and tone, improving the absorption of additional serums and moisturizers in the skin care regime.

Vitamin A and C

Whenever new collagen is formed, Vitamin C is being used as the preferable fuel in the rebuilding process. Meaning it’s important to always keep a decent level of the vitamin in the body.

Vitamin A improves skin’s texture by boosting the reconstruction of collagen and the renewal of skin cells.

Fish oil supplements can be enough to treat the different needs of the skin. Especially problematic skin that suffers from dryness, acne, sensitivity, eczema or rosacea. The essential omega-3 fatty acids that come from salmon, anchovies or sardines, have proven to reduce the appearance of redness and the affected capillaires on the face. EPA can also be found in some fish oils, which is known to affect the build-up of sebum that leads to acne. Other assets of omega-3 fatty acids can protect skin from sun damage, reduce wrinkles and supply hydration. Some fish oil supplements are also a great source of vitamins A, D and E.

Additionally, fish oil also benefits hair by stimulating growth and provides hair with strength, shine, nourishment and moisture. Not to mention the several health benefits – from boosting memory, improving immunity, blood circulation and weight loss (in combination with a good diet and regular exercise) to reducing inflammation and the risk of heart diseases.

Consider going for a good quality supplement as frequent doses of the high level of toxins found in some fish can be dangerous.

Adapting to a fail proof skincare routine including an exceptional cleanser, a free radical fighting serum, a smart SPF and products packed with antioxidants, plant extracts and powerful active ingredients are therefore mandatory in order to attain a good-looking, healthy skin condition.

New innovations, formulas and techniques reign the realm of self-tanners, constantly improving the effects of achieving the utmost natural, sun-kissed glow or the deepest “fresh-off-Ibiza” tan. Fake tanners have been gaining more attention and encouragement of use over the recent years thanks to advanced technology, providing equally stunning results as compared to a real tan, minus the damaging effects of the sun’s dangerous rays.

St. Tropez is one of the cult brands that have reinvented the way people perceive self-tanning, with the astonishing Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion debuting in 2015. The eponymous tanning label has now taken another step towards a new direction by inventing the first ever self-tanning sheet mask that’s launching this month, just in time for summer ´17.

Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion


A clever, sweet almond oil infused lotion that is to be used in the shower. Carefully apply all over the body, leave it on for just 3 minutes before rinse. Then wait for 8 hours to see full results. Reapply with every shower for a deeper glow.

The Face And Body Gradual Tan


Basking in the sun’s delightful glimmer is a sheer luxury. And so should the act of self-tanning be. La Mer Face & Body Gradual Tan absorbs quickly, treating skin to a desirable, natural tan minus the streaks if applied carefully on exfoliated and moisturized skin.
