Best shampoo for oily hair
Is there any hair type more annoying than oily hair? Yes, each hair type has its pros and cons, but surely oily hair requires the most upkeep. Greasy haired girls are easily spotted out in the wild – we’re the ones rocking hats and beanies year-round, emptying cans of dry shampoo into our locks on the daily and wearing our hair down for a day, then in a ponytail for the rest of the week. That is, until we find the best shampoo for oily hair and have our world turned upside down.

It took me a long time to find my oily-haired match. As someone with oily hair who also colours it on the regular, I’ve often sacrificed my scalp at the expense of keeping my colour intact – especially when I’ve had hard-to-maintain colours like platinum blonde and pastel pink.
After a few years as a beauty editor, I’ve learned a few things and tried a few formulas that have promised to balance my oily scalp and protect my colour. Now not all of them have lived up to their claims, but I’ve definitely found a few that have – and that’s why we’re here today. Because as it turns out, our oily-haired members have found some good ones too!
So if you, like me, struggle with an oily scalp that just won’t quit, it’s time to upgrade with our edit of the best shampoo for oily hair.
