My hair and skin seem to be getting oily by the minute. I haven’t changed anything I’ve eaten or any of my beauty products so not sure what it is. Has anyone had similar problems?

  • Similar question appears on this link on http://goaskalice.columbia.edu/answered-questions/what-can-i-do-take-care-my-very-oily-hair-and-skin and the remedy includes leaving shampoo to soak rather than wash off straight away and also making sure you don’t moisturize oily skin.


  • sometimes a change in diet can also assist with this, I notice when Im on a full health kick, my hair always seems to look healthier, cleaner and doesnt get oily.


  • Hi not sure on your age, but I can say that over time our skin and hair and they way our body produces and absorbs oils changes too. I recommend a quick trip to your favourite beauty counter, I highly recommend Kiehls, and ask to speak about products best to suit you. ( Kiehls will almost alway give you samples to try ) Sometimes, you have to change products to suit your own changes. Sticking to the same ones always, isn’t always best for you. good luck xo


  • At times and it has been hormonal.


  • Sometimes trying to wash your hair less during the week can balance out your hair’s oil production. It does mean you have super oily hair for a few weeks while it resets it’s production rate – I did this not long ago and just tied my hair back and wore a scarf or clips. It took me about 3 weeks but now I only need to wash my hair twice a week rather than every day.
