Say Goodbye to Oily Roots and Dry Ends: Your Ultimate Guide to Balanced Hair

Are you tired of the perpetual struggle with oily roots and dry ends? You're not alone. It's a common hair woe that many of us battle on a daily basis. But fret not, because we've curated some expert tips to help you tame that hair havoc once and for all! Kiss the oily roots and dry ends dilemma goodbye, and say hello to hair that's beautifully balanced from root to tip!

Mindful Washing:
The foundation of a balanced hair care routine starts with the right shampoo. Opt for a shampoo formulated for your hair type that gently cleanses without stripping moisture from your ends. When washing, focus the shampoo mainly on the roots where oil tends to accumulate, gently massaging it into the scalp to remove excess oil and build-up. 

Lather, rinse, and repeat! Double cleansing in the shower is key. The first cleanse eliminates dirt, oil, and product buildup, while the second thoroughly cleanses your scalp and nourishes your strands, setting the stage for your favorite haircare products to shine.

Condition Correctly
Conditioning plays a crucial role in maintaining moisture balance in your hair. However, it's essential to apply conditioner strategically to avoid weighing down your roots. Focus the conditioner primarily on the mid-lengths and ends of your hair, where it's most needed. This helps hydrate dry ends without adding excess oil to your roots, promoting a harmonious balance throughout your strands.

Use a Scalp Treatment For Oily Roots
Address oily roots with a scalp treatment to balance your scalp. Your scalp, like your gut, hosts a microbiome essential for hair health, including bacteria, fungi, and other microbes. Use a daily scalp serum like our Better Roots RootBoost Serum for balance and nourishment. Consistent use leads to healthier hair, and you'll be able to space out your wash days!

Weekly TLC For Dry Ends:
Give your hair some much-needed TLC with a weekly restoring treatment, like our UltraRepair Reconstructing Masque. Designed to repair and hydrate dry, damaged hair. Apply generously to the mid-lengths and ends, focusing on areas prone to dryness and breakage. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes or as an overnight treatment.

Pro Tip: For an extra boost of hydration, cover your hair with a shower cap or warm towel while the treatment is on to help the product penetrate deeply into the hair shaft.
