Sometimes new hair regimens mean you have to endure a few days of not washing your hair. After hair coloring, for example, or when you’re training your scalp to return to its natural oil balance by washing it less. Living with dirty hair is hard, but turn the extra grease into an advantage, and it will lead you to a shinier tomorrow!


1. Braid

Braided styles are all about texture, and greasiness adds to just that. Everything is tucked away, and you’re free to play with any styles and tricks. Grease is the last thing people think about when they see your style!


2. Ponytail

There’s nothing more intuitive than pulling all the strands together to a ponytail so you can forget about it. Your ponytail may seem thinner and slicker than usual, and if that doesn’t appeal, do a messy ponytail (which just doesn’t work with clean hair!) To get the messy look, apply some dry shampoo for texture and volume.


3. Half up, half down

When your hair is not too oily, it’s still possible to wear your hair down and feel feminine. Just pull the side fringes back to have the more unruly hair stay put.


4. Bun

Earrings from Holiday  |  Wool Blazer from Bufu

The main trick of dealing with dirty hair is to hide the roots, where the parting is the most obvious. A bun or top knot is the ultimate solution to cover greasy parting lines with voluminous, glamorous hair. Learn how to use bobby pins to achieve magic!


5. Wavy

Curls hold so much better on greasy hair. Hold your curling iron vertical to create a wavy look, then spray some products or continue to style them into half-up or a loose ponytail.


6. Turban

Scarf from Start from the Bottom  |  Headband from Ms How Fan

Hold your hair in place with a headband, turban, or a scarf. It will cover everything, and it is so stylish that you might want to add some dramatic earrings to go with the look!


Just remember, brushing your hair too much will only stimulate your scalp and make it more oily. Do yourself a favor and clean your hairbrush so it’s not adding dust and residual oil every time you brush it!
