There are many theories on hair care, and you will find articles warning against daily shampooing...and just as many saying it is healthy to shampoo every day.

Here is a great article with tips and theories regarding oily hair and/or oily scalp: http://www.hairboutique.com/tips/tip1058.htm.

Do you know what is causing your oily hair (or oily scalp)? If you notice an oil build-up after not washing your hair, you can wash your hair daily without causing harm. There is a product called "dry shampoo" that a few women on EmpowHER have said worked great for their greasy hair: https://www.empowher.com/skin-hair-amp-nails/content/dry-shampoos-do-they-work.

Do you have any other symptoms that concern you, as sometimes changes in our hair (if it is too dry or too oily) can be a symptom of another condition. Most of the time...it is just a change in our routine that is needed, but I wanted to rule out any possible medical causes to your oily hair/scalp.

You will also be interested in this article, that discusses different products for haircare: Hair Health: Bad hair days gone forever.
