Natural body oils are produced from specialized glands called sebaceous glands. They secrete an oily substance called sebrum which helps to lubricate the skin, the hair shafts and scalp. Certain triggers or stimulants like high temperatures or humidity can cause the glands to increase the production of sebrum. Other factors such as family genetics, unhealthy diets, hormonal imbalance or changes, cheap hair products, medications and poor hair hygiene can cause oily hair.
Step 1Use a homemade remedy herbal rinse to treat oily hair. Make a herbal mixture using 2 tbsp. each of dried herbs such as lavender, peppermint, jojoba and yarrow. Place herbal mixture into a muslin bag and boil in a warm teapot by pouring 500 milliliters of boiling water over the mixture. Allow the herbs to infuse for three hours, then strain the liquid portion into a clean container or jar and add 500 milliliters of apple cider vinegar to the mixture. Shake the mixture thoroughly and use as a rinse for oily hair. The herbal rinse helps to get rid of oily hair by removing excess oils
Step 2Using a scalp scrub will help to remove dead cells from the scalp including waxy buildups that might have accumulated on and around the hair shafts. One such product is Bain de Terre's sugar and fig scalp scrub, which is available at most local drugstores or online at Amazon.com. Make your own scalp scrub with natural exfoliates like dark brown sugar, oatmeal or nuts. The Web site Homemade Beauty Recipes cites using a gentle exfoliate such as rice bran powder for removing dirt and absorbing oils from the pores of the skin. This will help to balance the oils in the hair and skin. It is recommended to shampoo the hair before applying the scalp scrub.

GarnierUSA.com/Fructis/AntiDandruffSponsored LinksStep 3Wash hair daily to manage the excess oil production causing oily hair. Avoid using hair conditioners on the scalp because this will cover the hair shafts with extra oils. Healthy hair hygiene is important to control and manage oily hair. Use natural organic herbal shampoos and add a few drops of natural astringents, such as lemon, to help reduce the oily texture on the hair.
Step 4A well-balanced diet is important for maintaining a healthy body, a strong immune system, and healthy hair and nails. Increasing your consumption of fruits and vegetables, supplements and multivitamins will help to manage the oil production in the scalp and give a shiny luster to the hair. In the March 28, 2005, issue of International Review of Cytology, available online through the U.S. National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Lutz Langbein and Jürgen Schweizer state that human hair is made up of protein molecules called keratin. Increasing the diet with high-grade organic plant proteins, such as soy protein, will help to strengthen the hair strands.

FAQ 1- How do I mix Barbicide® correctly?
Barbicide® concentrate is mixed correctly by adding 2 oz (1/4 cup) concentrate to 32 oz of cold water. Barbicide® Plus concentrate is mixed correctly by adding 1 oz (2 Tbsp) of concentrate to 128 oz (1 gallon) of cold water.
2- What does contact time mean?
Contact time refers to the length of time a product must stay moist with disinfectant to be effective against the pathogens listed on the label. For Barbicide® and Barbicide® Plus, the contact time is 10 minutes of moist contact to be effective. For Barbicide® wipes, the contact time is 2 minutes (3 minutes for effectiveness against tuberculosis).
3- My state requires the use of a Tuberculocidal disinfectant; which Barbicide® product should I use?
Barbicide® Plus should only be used in states requiring a Tuberculocidal disinfectant. It is important to make sure this is a requirement of your state before selecting the Barbicide® Plus product (otherwise Barbicide® should be used). For specific questions, please contact us at email@example.com.
4- My Barbicide® Plus is cloudy; have I done something wrong?
If you have mixed your Barbicide® Plus concentrate correctly (see question #1), and it has been changed daily, the cloudiness is normal. This cloudy appearance is normal for Barbicide® Plus in certain types of water.
5- Can Clippercide® be used to clean and disinfect?
Yes. Clippercide® is a 5-in-1 product that you can use on your clippers to:
Barbicide® should be changed daily in all containers used to submerge combs, brushes, shears, implements—that is all tubs, glass or plastic jars. It should also be changed whenever contaminated or diluted incorrectly.
7- Can I use Ship-Shape® Spray on my mirrors and glass?
Ship-Shape® can be used to clean virtually all hard surfaces—it is your stainless steel, glass, countertop, mirror, chair, appliance and general surface cleaner all in one product! When using to clean glass or mirrors it is important to wipe in a circular motion for the best result. When using to remove hair spray from appliances, please use only on fully cool flat irons, curling irons, etc.
8- Is Ship-Shape® Powder the same product as Ship-Shape® Spray?
No. Ship-Shape® Powder is intended to clean combs and brushes prior to disinfecting them in the Barbicide® solution. It does not dissolve hair (Brush Delite® does dissolve hair), but allows all of the brush surfaces to be cleaned effectively. Ship-Shape® Spray is intended for general cleaning and removal of hair spray and hair product residue from appliances, chairs, etc.
9- Will Barbicide® harm my plastic combs/brushes or fine metal sheers?
Barbicide® will not harm your plastics or metals; however, it is not recommended that you leave items soaking for long periods of time. If you are using Barbicide® Plus, you should only leave your items in the solution for the required 10 minutes and then remove promptly, as Barbicide® Plus can damage plastics after prolonged contact.
10- What is the difference between “sanitize”, “clean”, “disinfect”, “sterilize” and “hygiene”? They all get used together, and I am confused!
“Sanitize”, “clean” and “hygiene” all refer to the broad category that means you have done something to remove visible debris. Examples of this would be wiping down a counter, holding something under running water, using soap and water on an item or using a cleaning solution like Ship-Shape®. Disinfecting is the killing of most microbial life that can lead to infection in humans—such as Influenza, Staphylococcus, HIV/AIDS, Herpes, Salmonella and Hepatitis. This step is done following cleaning and requires the use of a disinfectant such as Barbicide®, Barbicide® Plus or Barbicide® Wipes. Sterilization is the killing of all microbial life and requires an autoclave or cold sterilizer. This method is mainly used in healthcare and requires cleaning and disinfecting as steps prior to sterilization.

General usage Hair relaxing, or lanthionization, can be performed by a professional cosmetologist in a salon, or at home with relaxer kits purchased from discount stores and pharmacies. As with hair dye, the treated portion of the hair moves away from the scalp as the new growth of untreated hair sprouts up from the roots, requiring periodic retreatment (about every 6–8 weeks) to maintain a consistent appearance.
The relaxer is applied to the roots of the hair and remains in place for a "cooking" interval, during which it alters the hair's texture by a process of controlled damage to the protein structure. The hair can be significantly weakened by the physical overlap of excessive applications or by a single excessive one, leading to brittleness, breakage, or even widespread alopecia.
When the relaxer has worked to the desired degree, the hair is rinsed clean. Regardless of formula, relaxers are always alkaline to some degree, so it is prudent to neutralize or even slightly acidify the hair with a suitable shampoo immediately afterward. The prompt use of hair conditioner is also important in order to replace some of the natural oils that were stripped away by the process.
 Types of hair relaxers  Alkaline and Lye relaxers Alkaline relaxers were informally discovered in the United States during the 19th century when Garrett Augustus Morgan, an African-American, observed that it is possible to change the basic structure of the hair shaft when certain chemicals penetrate the cortical layer. Hair relaxing products often require washing and combing with soap which had been made with excess lye.
A lye relaxer consists of sodium hydroxide (also known as NaOH or lye) mixed with water, petroleum jelly, mineral oil, and emulsifiers to create a creamy consistency. On application, the caustic "lye cream" permeates the protein structure of the hair and weakens its internal bonds, causing the natural curls to loosen out as the entire fiber swells open. No special deactivation step is required after washing the lye cream out, other than the routine pH adjustment and hair-conditioning.
Manufacturers vary the sodium hydroxide content of the solution from 5% to 10% and the pH factor between 10 and 14.
 "Base" and "no base" formulas Entirely distinct from the chemical concept of base as a wider definition for "alkaline", lye relaxers may be labelled as "base" or "no base". In this instance, the "base" refers to a preliminary coating of petroleum jelly onto the scalp to protect it from being irritated or burned by the lye cream. "No base" creams have a lower concentration of lye and may be applied directly to the hair roots without requiring the protective "base" layer, although these weaker products may still irritate the skin of some people who must therefore coat their scalps beforehand anyway.
 "No lye" relaxers Due to increasing awareness concerning the potential dangers of sodium hydroxide found in traditional relaxer formulas, many women have begun abandoning them. "No-lye" relaxers have become the preferred formula for those unwilling to give up relaxers completely. "No-lye" relaxers are of three main types. One type operates on the same general principle as lye relaxers but uses a slightly weaker alkaline agent, such as potassium hydroxide, lithium hydroxide, or guanidine hydroxide. The last of these is not pre-formulated, but rather is generated at the time of use by combining a cream containing calcium hydroxide (slaked lime) with an "activating solution" of guanidine carbonate.
Another type of "no-lye" relaxer uses ammonium thioglycolate, which is also known as perm salt for its use in permanent waves. Perm salt is a chemical reducing agent which selectively weakens the hair's cystine bonds instead of disrupting the entire protein, but strips out the natural oils even more thoroughly than the alkali hydroxide products. Afterward, the thioglycolate must be oxidized with a special solution of hydrogen peroxide or sodium bromate.
Lastly, in most relaxers sold for home use, the active agents are ammonium sulfite and ammonium bisulfite (the two compounds are interchangeable, depending on the surrounding pH). These also selectively reduce the cystine bonds, but are much weaker and work more slowly. Nevertheless, their mild action minimizes (but does not entirely eliminate) collateral irritation to the skin.
 Commercial sale Early in the 1900s hair relaxing products emerged, such as "G.A. Morgan's Hair Refiner Cream." Sale of "lye relaxers" began in 1971 by companies such as Proline. Proline also produced the first commercial "no lye relaxer" using potassium hydroxide in 1973.
