Oiliness after henna for hair
HI I've been hennaing my short fine hair for a few months. Is it normal for hair to become super oily? I need to wash it every two days now due to the oiliness. If it were longer hair I probably wouldn't need to but it looks awful if I don't wash it. Also when I do wash it, the longer parts of my hair feel very course and crunchy. However once it is dry it appears very healthy and shiny. Does anyone have a solution to the oiliness. I don't use any other product in my hair for styling. Just use a no cone no sls shampoo and conditioner. Thank you! Kaybee

Hello,

How long ago did you switch to a shampoo that has no cones, and no sls. ? Sometimes with a more natural shampoo your hair goes through an adjustment period when getting used to it.

HI enissel and thank for your reply. I've been using no cones no sls for a couple of months at least. Maybe not long enough for my hair to adjust. I'm also concerned how Crunchy my hair feels when I wash it. Last application I have only applied henna to the roots. The mix I use is napur baq henna with camomile tea and a small dash of apple cider vinegar, olive oil and a couple drops essential oil. It covers my greys very well. My hair just feels so dry and course after and during shampoo but once dry it's very shiny. Thanks again.
