I suffer from oily hair – I’ve found a game-changing hack to banish greasy roots without showering
SCHEDULING in a hair wash can be a pain for busy women, so the thought of going days without a shower and blow dry routine would be a dream come true.
That’s exactly what happened to an American TikTok user, who discovered a life-changing hack to avoid greasy roots without stepping into the bathtub.
Alex James shared his mind-blowing trick with his followers and could hardly contain his excitement.
“I’ve figured out the key to making sure your hair doesn’t get greasy after a day, and I’m going to share it with you,” she beams. “I feel like this needs to be on the internet.”
Alex explains her daily struggle suffering with greasy roots less than a day after washing her hair.
“I get greasy hair the same day I wash it. I can shower in the morning and when I go to bed my hair is an oil bomb,” she admits. “It’s just how my hair works and I’ve accepted it.”
Alex has tried almost every technique under the sun to keep grease at bay, from skipping wash day during lockdown to exercise her tresses, to buying every dry shampoo she can find.
“I’ve tried masks, I’ve tried not washing my hair for weeks…nothing works,” she explains. “Before I started doing this.”

Alex begins to explain her incredible hack, which she discovered by accident. She holds up a bottle of Batiste Original Dry Shampoo and reveals her secret.
“I was on my way to school after dry shampooing my hair and I was sweating because I was late for class,” she recalls.
“When I got to class my hair was a little damp from sweat. When my hair dried, it was clean. And it stayed clean for three more days.”
She adds excitedly, “I used to shower my hair every single day.”
Then she gets to the good part: “Take a small spray bottle and fill it with water. You wet your hair with the dry shampoo in it. My boyfriend said it’s just like showering, but it’s not.”
She continues: “I do this before I go to bed on the day I shower and it makes my hair last three more days. It doesn’t feel grainy either.”

Alex ends the video with his new hair motto: “Put dry shampoo in your hair and get it a little wet, I swear to God. This makes my hair feel clean.”
Almost 100,000 people have seen Alex’s clip so far, and they’re all delighted with her discovery.
One TikTok user said: “Girl I have to try this. My hair is the same and I’m sooo tired of having to wash it every day or put it up every other day.”
Other users had their own hair hacks to share, including using shampoo twice while washing and having a “clean” and “dirty” brush depending on when you last washed your hair.
