Tip No. 3: Put oatmeal on your scalp
Here’s why it works: “Oatmeal is a great treatment for oily hair,” says David. Its thick consistency helps soak up the oil from your roots. Not to mention, it also exfoliates your scalp and soothes itchiness. If you’re in a rush and have no time to cook up some oats or hop in the shower, sprinkle dry oatmeal onto your scalp to soak up any oil, and brush it out.
