Hair Products for Controlling Shine

Posted by Mary Shoufield on

When it comes to managing excessive scalp shine and oily hair, using the right hair products can make a significant difference. Several types of products are designed specifically to absorb excess oil, mattify the hair, and prevent that greasy, shiny appearance. Here's a closer look at some effective hair products for controlling shine:

  1. Oil-absorbing powders

These lightweight powders are typically made from ingredients like rice starch, cornstarch, or silica. They work by absorbing excess oil and sebum from the scalp and hair strands. Some popular options include dry shampoos, hair powders, and root touch-up powders.

These powders can be applied directly to the scalp or roots, allowing them to soak up excess oil and leave the hair looking fresh and matte.

  1. Mattifying hair products

Mattifying hair sprays, serums, or creams are formulated to reduce shine and greasiness. They often contain ingredients like silica, clay, or starch that help to absorb oil and create a matte finish.

These products can be applied to the hair after styling, helping to control shine and maintain a desired level of matte texture throughout the day.

  1. Clarifying shampoos

Regular use of clarifying or deep-cleansing shampoos can help remove excess oil, product buildup, and impurities from the scalp and hair.

These shampoos often contain ingredients like sulfates or surfactants that provide a thorough cleanse. By removing excess oil and buildup, clarifying shampoos can help reduce scalp shine and prevent greasy hair.

  1. Dry shampoos

Dry shampoos are a popular and convenient option for absorbing excess oil between regular washings. They typically contain absorbent ingredients like rice starch, clay, or alcohol, which help to soak up sebum and refresh the hair.

Dry shampoos can be sprayed directly onto the roots and massaged into the scalp, allowing them to absorb oil and leave the hair looking refreshed and matte.

  1. Hair powders and volumizing products

Hair powders and volumizing products can also help to absorb excess oil. These products also add texture and volume to the hair. These products often contain ingredients like silica, clay, or starches that absorb oil and create a matte, volumized appearance.

It's important to note that while these products can be effective in controlling shine, it's also crucial to address the underlying causes of excessive oil production, such as hormonal imbalances, diet, or improper scalp care routine.

But there are drawbacks or side effects too.
