I’m an ex-hairdresser – banish greasy hair by doing a simple 10-second trick before washing it | The Sun

NEXT time you find yourself with greasy hair, try an expert-approved trick before you hit the showers to scrub your scalp.

The hair hack only takes ten seconds, but it leaves your hair extra-soft, and can even curtail grease production in the future.

Ex-hairdresser Amy, who doesn't use her last name online, has a massive 145k following on TikTok, where she shares valuable hair secrets gleaned from years of experience.

One video featured Amy's way of using greasy hair to her advantage.

If a hectic week or a hot day leaves you with greasy hair, grab your brush and sit in front of the mirror before your shower.

First, Amy instructed, gently massage your whole scalp – just a few seconds will do.

Go slowly and work your hands across the entire surface of your head, and be careful not to tangle your hair in your hands or yank any strands out at the root.

"Remember to be gentle," Amy warned.

Then, grab your hairbrush. A soft- or mixed-bristle brush will work best for this.

Brush your hair from root to tip, slowly distributing the oil from your scalp down the lengths of your hair.

You should see a reduction in dryness at the ends of your strands, and if a greasy scalp left you with flat hair, moving that oil around could pump up the volume.

Depending on your hair type, the quick massage and brush trick could leave your hair looking flawless – and give you an excuse to delay wash day.

If done correctly, Amy asserted, the massage will not only reduce the appearance of grease, but also promote blood flow and potentially increase hair growth.

"I needed this," a grateful commenter said. "My hair gets greasy really quickly and it's really annoying."

A fellow oily-haired viewer said she already uses a similar method and has seen results, even if her family balks when she skips a wash.

"My mum complains but then gets irritated my hair grows faster than hers," the woman wrote.
