Get going, grease

Conditioner can be tricky territory for those with an oil-prone hair type.
The post-shampoo feeling isn’t exactly ideal (anyone else’s strands feel something like straw after the cleanse and before the conditioning?), but when you know your strands can get real greasy real fast, it can be real tempting to skip it.
Not all conditioners contribute to the 'hi, my hair is oily' problem, though. Find a formula that works to balance and hydrate in one go, and you'll be made in the shade.
Or, hey, forget the finding part, because we've already found 'em. Here are the seven best conditioners for oily hair...

With Indian cress extract in the formula for an extra hit of cleansing action, this conditioner will smooth, detangle and nourish hair without leaving excess oils lingering.
Ouai Fine Hair Conditioner
Softness and bounce are two of the major goals on anyone with oil-prone hair’s wishlist, and this keratin and hemp extract formula will deliver both while also keeping grease in check.
Klorane Conditioner with Flax Fiber
A non-greasy detangler that’ll add shine to strands while also dialling up your volume levels, this flax fiber formula will smooth your hair in a way that doesn’t leave it looking limp or lifeless.
Kevin Murphy Plumping Rinse
Excess oil isn’t only an issue for fine hair types, no, but it is one that affects them more than most. Luckily, this densifying rice protein conditioner will leave hair full, smooth and grease-free.
