I have chemically treated blonde hair with highlights, howeverer my scalp and skin are oily. would the Alterna bamboo smooth products (cont. below)
such as the shampooo, conditioner and kendi oil, worsen the oily scalp? These products appealed to me for their anti frizz properties, which is a problem in the humid climate i live in.

I live in a humid climate as well and found these products lacking. I prefer Agave Smoothing Trio

I'm originally from a humid climate (now I'm in the high desert), and I found that the Bamboo products are great for either climate zone! I brought them with me on a trip back east and they worked just as well for me there, where I tend to have more oily skin and scalp.

I have very frizzy, long hair with blonde highlights and my scalp is VERY oily. (Greasy is more like it!) However, I have found the Bamboo Smooth products have actually HELPED control the excess oil. The shampoo cleans very gently and effectively. The conditioner helps with the shine and softness but does not seem to help much with tangles. BUT--The Kendi Oil is the best ever! It is such a good mult-tasker & it has never made my scalp oily. I actually use the oil on my hair when it's wet as a detangler, I just put about a nickel size amount in my hands & rub them together. Then I gather my wet hair like I am pulling it back for a ponytail and work the oil all the way down to the ends. I don't use it on my roots when my hair is wet. Then I proceed with blow drying, flat-ironing, hot rollers, etc. Once my hair is styled/dry; I use the oil again, this time about the size of a dime. I rub my hands together & just use my fingers to comb it through & "spot" treat my hair where it needs additional frizz control. Another bonus about the Kendi Oil is when you are rubbing it on your hands before you put it on your hair it's a great treatment for dry skin/cuticles. And it smells wonderful! It's like silk in a bottle! And always remember-- Sephora has an awesome return policy so keep your receipt & if for some reason this doesn't work for you then take it back. Alterna Bamboo Smooth products have made me proud to wear my hair down again instead of a bun or ponytail all the time. I haven't even tried the hairspray that came with it because I am so happy with my style after using the shampoo, conditioner, & the golden elixir called Kendi Oil! I highly recommend!!
I think this would be a great product for you to use. Most conditioning oils should be applied to the ends of your hair, not the scalp area. So if your prone to oiliness on your scalp, the kendi oil wouldn't be coming into contact with it. Plus this is conditioning your hair not necessarily adding more moisture to your scalp. I have chemically treated hair as well, and I really feel this worked for me, especially during humid months.

I would think everything would be OK except the Kendi oil maybe try a teeny bit on the tips. I have very similar hair but the ends get dry and frizz, this stuff is the best product I have ever used.
