If you have gone ‘shampoo-free‘, your hair can get a bit oily as it’s re-adjusting to the new routine of only once per week so in-between washes, you may want to use these tips if your hair gets a little oily:

Witch Hazel

Witch Hazel (in a spray bottle) – you can also add essential oils to the bottle to make it smell nice too.

Vinegar (in a spray bottle) – ditto with the essential oils.

white vinegar


Baby Powder or Arrowroot Powder or Corn Flour (brush on with a make-up (foundation) brush to your oily scalp, wait about 15 mins, then brush out – this tip is great for blondes!)


(Arrowroot is what I use – applied with a makeup brush, left in for about 10 mins then I brush it out)

(You can also use a salt & pepper shaker or similar instead of the make-up brush)
