Clear the grease, let your hair increase
That’s the concept behind Grow Girl These Roots Were Made for Washing, a pre-shampoo treatment designed to get harmful dirt, pollutants, and follicle-clogging oils off the scalp in a gentle way with apple cider vinegar and witch hazel. This gentle formula is also paraben-free, sulfate-free, and non-drying. Committing a few minutes before you shampoo results in a noticeably better scalp and hair conditions for days to come. Side bonus: it’s supposed to help grow longer and stronger, too.
Smells like a dream
You don’t have to give up your top priority of completely delish-smelling mane when you shop for shampoos for oily hair. Aveda Scalp Benefits Balancing Shampoo gently cleanses with burdock root, echinacea, and sage while perfume-worthy aromas from vetiver, rosemary, cinnamon, and flower extracts go to work satisfying your scent cravings.

Sometimes the best shampoos for oily hair go to work removing oil while simultaneously treating the scalp with pharmacy-grade ingredients. “I recommend ketoconazole shampoo like Nizoral. Ketoconazole is an antifungal with mild antiandrogenic properties which can block the hormone responsible for excessive oil production,” shares Susan Bard, MD of Vive Dermatology.
