A Very Stylish RI Girl: How To End Oily Hair Drama

As a girl who suffers from oily hair, there are few things more annoying than having to wash your hair every day. The 'lather, rinse, repeat' cycle has become all too familiar to me, and it seems like the only products offered in every store are for dry and damaged hair. All of you with hair similar to mine will most likely agree that oily hair looks gross, feels gross, and destroys your self-esteem. I have been facing an ongoing battle with my hair for as long as I can remember, so I was excited when Patty J. asked me to try the DESSANGE Paris Purifying Collection (a new line from the iconic, luxe French brand) and share my thoughts. 

About The Line

DESSANGE Paris Purifying Clay Collection is the first oil-control, two-part hair care system that treats both your hair and your scalp (a super important but often overlooked part of the de-greasing/de-grossing process) at home. 

Step 1: Purifying Clay Balancing Pre-Shampoo Mask, $11.99

This clay-in-mask pre-shampoo treatment specifically targets oily scalp with a brand new purifying technology. The 30% mineral green clay concentration absorbs excess oil and over time, regulates oil production (which basically means that, as you use it, your hair will become less oily...Yay!). The professional application brush, that comes with, helps you apply the mask more easily and evenly. 

Step 2: Purifying Clay Balancing Shampoo, $9.99

The pro-vitamin b5 enhanced shampoo helps (further) de-grease oily roots and produce soft, perfectly balanced hair (and WHO doesn't want that?), lightly scented with hints of cherry, violet, and vanilla. (Btw, pro-vitamin b5 is well known for helping repair and soften hair from roots to ends.)


These are the Holy Grail of products for oily hair! The mask and shampoo have been a complete miracle for my hair. The two part system left my scalp feeling clean without over drying it. The mask manages oil, only leaving behind what's needed to nourish. So, not only do the products work, but they leave your hair feeling extremely soft. I was very impressed and would definitely recommend to all those who are currently suffering from extreme oiliness.

Drying And Styling Tips 

After shampooing, I spray my hair with It's A 10 Miracle Leave In Product. I'm usually skeptical about using additional products on my hair because anything more than shampoo could leave it looking greasy, but I'd heard great things about this and had to try it for myself. The spray detangles and makes my hair silky, smooth, and shiny - all without any greasiness whatsoever. (Whew.) I then brush with The Wet Brush (If you don't own one, go out and get one right now!) which I promise will detangle even the thickest hair without damaging it.
