No one wants their hair to feel oily. But for some people, the scalp is perpetually greasy, even after it has been washed. This can cause them to have bad hair days, which can be irritating even if you are at home. Besides, the whole purpose of washing the hair with shampoo and then conditioning it is so that the scalp becomes oil and dirt-free. If the oil remains, it can cause severe itching and dandruff, which can defeat the purpose of cleaning.

This weekend, while you sit down to wash your hair, read up on the many different, natural ways with which you can keep the grease away. Your regular kitchen items can do wonders for the scalp; find out.

Lemon juice

Just squeeze a little piece of lemon when you wash your hair. The juice is supposed to add a natural shine to the tresses and also keep the scalp clean. Being acidic in nature, it makes for a great remedy for dandruff, too. You can even mix the juice with a cup of water and apply it directly on the scalp. Wash your hair after 15 minutes with normal water.

Tomato hair mask

Tomato is not just great for the skin, but for the hair, too. It is acidic in nature, too, which means it can benefit your scalp. It is capable of balancing out the pH level of the scalp, thereby controlling the release of oil. Make a paste of a regular-sized tomato and then apply it on the scalp. Leave it on for 30 minutes before you wash it off with regular water. Do this at least twice every week.
