Why you need to be using natural conditioner on your oily scalp & hair

If you suffer from oily hair, let me ask you; have you ever not used conditioner because you felt your hair was too oily? Often, it’s easy to assume that our hair is oily as a result of using natural conditioners and/or hair treatments that are too nourishing. However, the fact is that oily scalps are caused by a range of different factors

Oily scalps can be linked to changes in our bodies and hormones, our hair habits and the types of hair care products we use. But what if I told you that not applying conditioner to your hair might actually be making your scalp and hair oilier? Let’s take a closer look at why you must be using chemical free conditioners and hair masks in your hair care routine to achieve a regulated and normalised scalp.

Your scalp always needs hydration

Just like our skin, our scalp needs sufficient hydration, moisture and conditioning regardless of how oily your hair is. In fact, it is when our scalp does not receive proper hydration that it can potentially produce increased amounts of oil in your hair. 

Yes, applying large amounts of conditioner that is formulated with ingredients like silicones directly onto your scalp can leave your hair feeling oily, heavy and weighed down, but when you invest in the right natural, Australian made conditioner formulated with only all natural ingredients, you can give your scalp and hair the proper nourishment to regulate your sebum (oil) flow. Hair products made with harsh chemicals, including silicones, can often coat your hair after consistent and long term use, causing further problems with your scalp and hair’s oil and overall health.

Invest in a lightweight but nourishing natural conditioner

Our Australian made Sozo Hair Health Conditioner has been scientifically formulated with ingredients like behentrimonium methosulfate, sodium hyaluronate, panthenol, argan oil and many more to nourish your hair, while also remaining lightweight for maximum volume.

Behentrimonium methosulfate is a positively charged, natural vegetable derived emulsifier and conditioning agent formulated into our natural conditioner that is known to flatten the cuticles, assisting with detangling. Plus, it also reduces static without leaving that heavy build up feeling on your scalp and hair.

Whereas sodium hyaluronate, which is the sodium salt of hyaluronic acid, provides hydration and acts as a moisturiser due to its high water retention capabilities. More specifically, hyaluronic acid is able to create a moisture barrier around the hair shaft, which ultimately adds more volume and body to your hair, enabling our Australian made conditioner to be both hydrating and lightweight.

In addition to behentrimonium methosulfate and sodium hyaluronate, panthenol (vitamin B5) and argan oil are also featured in our natural conditioner to improve the health and appearance of your scalp and hair through providing moisture, conditioning damage, reducing frizz and increasing shine.

It is with ingredients like these, that are formulated into our natural conditioner, that allows you to give your scalp hydration, moisture and nourishment, ultimately regulating your natural sebum flow for a healthier scalp and hair both now and in the long term.


If you suffer from an oily scalp and do not currently know what ingredients are in your hair care products, take a moment to check the ingredient lists on your hair products and consider switching to all-natural hair care like our Sozo Hair Health range to improve your overall scalp and hair health.
