What Causes Greasy Hair?

A girl getting ready to try some hairstyles for greasy hair.

We recommend this article from Glamour Magazine to better prevent and control dirty hair. A lot of different situations can cause greasy hair. These are just some of the contributing factors that can lead to oily looking hair:


Ladies, your period results in a surge of hormones that affect a whole host of body functions. For your hair, an increase of hormones can result in your oil glands overproducing, resulting in greasy hair. 

Wearing a constant ponytail

The ponytail is an evergreen hairstyle. One that is reliable can be dressed up or down and looks good. However, wearing your hair in a ponytail too much can cause oil and dirt to accumulate under the ponytail holder. That accumulation can leave hair greasy in appearance.

Over shampooing 

Shampooing your hair results in clean hair that is stripped of excess oils. If your hair over-shampooed, then your body will make up for the oils it’s lacking. The constant regeneration of oils may produce oily-looking hair. 

Hairstyles for Greasy Hair 

The following hairstyles are ones that you can do when you have a greasy hair day!

To achieve this flattering hairstyle for greasy hair, section the front of your hair in the desired part. To add a polished look, a side part always looks chic. Next, braid the small front section into one or more small french braids. 

This style can be elevated by taking the rest of your hair and putting it into a low-slung ponytail or curling the ends—next, pin plaits where you would like them to sit. 

For a special occasion: tease hair at the crown before curling or pulling into a ponytail. Finish your look off with a spritz of your favorite hairspray.

A favorite of women everywhere, the top knot can be done with all of your hair or just some.

Begin by brushing your hair into a high ponytail or half-ponytail on top of your head. Hold the ponytail with a hair tie. Depending on your hair type, you will next wrap your hair into a bun and secure it with another hair tie or bobby pins. If your hair is very thick, you may use both.
