What is the Best Solid Shampoo for Oily Hair?

Avatar

Solid shampoos were first launched in 1995 by the innovative British brand Lush. In France, it was Lamazuna that launched the movement in 2010.

Previously, the offer was largely reserved for the shelves of organic stores, but today there is a wide range of products adapted to all needs and all budgets!

From supermarket shelves to high-end brands, the formulas have evolved a lot since then, for the greater good of our hair. 

The advantages, both ecological and health, are numerous. Solids also allow us to clean up the design of the bathroom and to travel light!

France is endowed with an exceptional know-how in cosmetics. So, among the multitude of solid shampoos - not all of them qualitative - beware of brands that put all the budget in communication and not in their formulations.  Choose shampoos with natural formulas that are sensorially-pleasant and effective.

How did we make our selection?

In order to guide you in selecting the appropriate shampoo for greasy hair, we analyzed and compared the ingredients and the percentage of naturalness of very many brands of solid shampoos offered in France, and if possible Made In France.

We have also done a detailed analysis of consumer reviews and tested the products.

Why do we have oily hair?

Greasy hair is the result of too much sebum secretion by the sebaceous glands of the scalp.

There are many reasons for this disorder; they can be hereditary, hormonal, or the result of aggression by pollution or washing too often or with shampoos that do not maintain the natural balance of your scalp.

How do you avoid having oily hair?

You can start by balancing your diet by avoiding foods that are too fatty or too sweet.

A diet rich in fruits and vegetables will provide you with the full complement of vitamins necessary for the proper functioning of your body, and your hormonal system. 

Avoid any aggression to your scalp - the choice of shampoo is essential: use a very gentle shampoo, respectful of your scalp and your hair. Some highly-detergent shampoos that are "specific" to oily hair may give the satisfaction of "degreasing" effectively, but in fact only maintain the hyper-secretion of sebum. Absolutely avoid shampoos containing silicones and sulfates. Also avoid soaps sold as shampoos! Their pH is not adapted to your scalp at all!

Do not rub your scalp but massage it gently. Avoid using very hot water for rinsing.
