Chronic greasy hair can be caused by genetic, lifestyle, or environmental factors. If you wash your hair at night and wake up looking like you’ve sworn off showers, your scalp may be producing too much sebum, or oil. Sebum production is, for many people, a natural process. Your scalp produces oil through your sebaceous glands; without any oil, your strands would be dry, crackly, and easily breakable. However, if your hair is always greasy, you’re likely experiencing excess sebum production. This can happen for many reasons, like fluctuations in hormones, heredity, seasonal weather conditions, oily haircare products, prolonged stress, an unhealthy diet, and even changes in medication. Many of these risk factors are hard to fight. But greasy hair can cause other yucky problems like hair loss and dandruff if left unchecked. The safest way to soothe and treat oily-hair symptoms like flat strands and unpleasant smells is with a targeted grease-fighting shampoo.
Shampoo for greasy hairWe believe that beauty is about more than looks. It’s also about the science behind ingredients that work and sourcing those ingredients with respect for the planet that created them. That’s why we’ve crafted a gentle, targeted solution to greasy hair that removes totally un-beautifying sebum residue gently and effectively—with organically farmed, plant-based, science-proven solutions.
What makes milk_shake’s normalizing blend so effective?Most traditional shampoo-based solutions to greasy hair actually compound the problem. They strip sebum from your hair so thoroughly that your glands start overproducing oils to compensate. Normalizing blend’s surfactant is gentle, all-natural—it’s derived from the triglycerides in coconut oil—and formulated to control sebum production.
Organic plant extracts gently sooth and balance your scalpMilkshake’s nourishing blend counteracts the effects of prolonged stress, unhealthy diets, medications, and other modern style-destroyers with a recipe straight from nature. Our gentle cleansing shampoo utilizes:
- Organic coriander extract, packed with antioxidants that maintain a healthy sebum balance on your scalp to help banish grease-related odors.
- Organic helichrysum extract cultivated from a biodynamically farmed, Mediterranean-native flower. This gentle, soothing concentrate is renowned for its sebum-fighting properties (and it can help healthy skin, too!).
