Nourishing hair conditioner is specifically used for dry hair and dry scalp. It has oils that don't leave a greasy residue, but still provide enough moisture for hair to shine and look healthy.
You could always choose to buy a shampoo, but there are homemade recipes that are cheaper to make and all natural. Oily hair shampoo and conditioner target the excess oil that causes the hair to become oily. On the other side, there are dry hair shampoo recipes which restore the moisture and prevent dry, flaky skin of the scalp.

There is a simple way to get rid of greasy hair.
Every time you shampoo your hair, mix a little bit of freshly squeezed lemon juice in. Shake the bottle well (you could use a smaller bottle for this purpose) and shampoo the hair. Rinse off well.
This way, you will control the oiliness of the scalp and also, if you have blondish hair, you will actually help keep it light longer. All of these hair packs and balms are really simple.The first homemade, natural hair care product I tried was the egg white one. My hair was very greasy during puberty and that one seemed to help. My hair seems thicker and fuller, less greesy.
Frizzy, unmanageable hair can be a real pain! One of the best ingredients to use for this issue is Argan Oil. A strong moisturizer, this oil is surprisingly well absorbed. It quickly repairs frizzy hair, dry and brittle hair. A small amount is massaged into damp hair. That's it. It also reduces drying time by 40%. An awesome product in a small bottle.
