How to get baby Oil out of Hair? Things that you need:
#1. Warm water
I use warm water when eliminating oil from my hair. Warm water opens the hair cuticle, thus draining the excess oil absorbed by the hair.
#2. Glycerin Soap
Yes, glycerin soap usually leaves our skin and hair greasy. You may say it would worsen the oily problem. Yet, glycerin blends well with other water-soluble ingredients. So, when I rinse my hair using water and glycerin soap, it bonds with the water easily, washing along the oil from the hair.
#3. Baby Shampoo
The baby shampoo comes first in my mind when it pertains to cleaning an oily hair. Since they are made for babies, it naturally has mild chemical ingredients. It would gently clean the hair with just minor reactions to oil.
#4. Lemon Juice
Lemon juice is rich in citric acid that serves as a natural cleaning agent. When I apply it to my oily hair, it eliminates the grease that was stuck to the strands and scalp. If you have apple cider vinegar, as an alternative, it will work for the same purpose too.
#5. Dishwashing soap
Remember washing the slimy part of the plates when using the dishwashing soap? You could do the same for your hair. Dishwashing soap also has the anti-agent that fights oil. But be reminded that using too much of it can damage your hair.
#6. Baby powder
The powder can absorb oil well. It makes rinsing easier. If you don’t have one at home, a good alternative is a cornstarch. It’s something different but it really is effective!
#7. Hair Conditioner
To bring back the volume of my hair, applying conditioner at the end of the process is advisable.
Step by step instructions on how to get baby oil out of hair:
I have already mentioned to you the important things that you need in order to clear your hair from baby oil. Now, you are ready to do the simple steps. Take note that using in excess of any of these will cause harm to your hair.
Each item is effective in cleansing the hair from excessive oil. Nevertheless, applying only one or two would take longer to work. In my instructions, I have indicated the use of each one in the proper order.
Step 1- Application of baby shampoo
Don’t forget to use warm water.
Step 2- Wash with dishwashing soap or glycerin soap
Now it’s the dishwashing soap to do the trick. As I have mentioned, this is a strong anti-agent so just a little bit of it is needed.
Still, if you can’t take the idea of using dishwashing soap for your hair, glycerin soap is an excellent alternative. I recommend those that don’t have perfumes and dyes.
Step 3- Rinsing with lemon juice
When hair is dry, it’s ready for another rinsing using the lemon juice! You may feel that your hair is already slightly light and soft. But, let us continue removing the stubborn oil that’s left.
Step 4- Bringing back the natural beauty of your hair
Congratulations! You’ve successfully completed the steps on how to get baby oil out of hair. Now that it’s already clean and oil-free, let’s do the final step to bring back its natural look.
When after all the steps are done and you still feel slightly icky, you can use your baby powder. Apply some to the area where you feel the stickiness. Do steps 1-4 again. This method will take time to be effective especially if you put too much oil in your hair.
