If you are a victim of oily hair, I can sympathize with you. I have had oily hair since I can remember. When I was a young child I was teased; especially by my brothers and sisters. As an adult I have tried many remedies to cure my oily hair and scalp, all to no avail.
I feel the most important factor in reducing oily hair is the shampoo. I am constantly looking for a new shampoo. Deep cleansing shampoos are made to erase build-up and reduce oil. For me, most of these shampoos just dried out my hair and did nothing for my scalp. That is until recently when I finally discovered a shampoo that works for me!
The Product? TRESemme: Vitamin C, Deep Cleansing used by Professionals. The shampoo has a fairly thick gel texture, unlike some shampoos that just run right out of your hand like water. It is clear and smells very nice.
What Does The Product Claim To Do? TRESemme Vitamin C claims to “get rid of that extra gunk” that people use in their hair everyday by applying gels, pomades, creams and sprays. They also claim that the vitamin C and extracts from grapefruit and lemon polishes the hair.
What Does The Product Actually Do? This shampoo is the only one so far that strips my hair and scalp of oil. I used to wash my hair in the morning and 8 hours later it was oily and looked as though I had not showered in weeks! My hair feels dry all day but still has a shine to it.
Pros & Cons The pros are that the shampoo definitely works! The product does as it claims, it is affordable and easy to find. It also smells nice, which is always a plus for me. There is one con that I have encountered. The con is that it leaves my hands extremely dry. My hands were dry and itchy and hurting after about two weeks using the shampoo. The shampoo recommends using it at least once a week but everyday if there is a lot of buildup. Since my hair is so oily I chose to use it every day. I had to start using it every other day to relieve my dry hands.
How Much Is It? You can buy this shampoo at any WalMart, Target or Walgreen’s for an average price of $4.49. I think that this is a fair price. You get a lot for the price too; 32 oz. That is a great deal!
So if you are like me and have been trying to reduce the oil in your hair and scalp, I strongly recommend using this shampoo.
