We understand that you want to feel yourself, comfortable and healthy. That is why in this blog we offer you a preparation guide for in the future if you have to combat against greasy hair or if you have problems with your scalp or hair in the present, which can be treated with scalp treatments.

Causes for greasy and oily hair

The oils in your hair come from sebaceous glands attached to each hair follicle. These glands produce an oily substance that is called sebum. The sebum travels up the hair follicle to moisturize the skin and hair.

When these glands are not functioning normally, it is possible that problems with your hair and skin arise. Too much sebum could lead to greasy hair, acne and Seborrheic dermatitis. Most of the time hormones can cause your sebaceous glands to make an overload of sebum. That is why teenagers often suffer from acne or oily skin. Women during pregnancy or menstruation may also notice an oily feeling to the skin, because they also make hormones (Healthline, 2019).

The type of hair that a person has, can also affect how greasy your hair becomes. Straight or fine hair is more likely to become greasy than curly or thick hair. This is because sebum from the scalp can more easily cover the whole strand of hair if it is straight or thin.

Oily hair can also come from towels, hairbrushes and hats/scarfs. Because, there is a possibility these products can pick up sebum from the scalp. That is why you need to wash these products after using them otherwise your hair may become greasier.

Also, some evidence suggests that environmental factors may effect hair and scalp health. An interesting study (2015) found out that air pollution was causing an oily scalp in people that live along cities that have a big pollution rate.

Treatment against greasy hair

There are a few ways to treat your greasy hair immediately. The most common and best way to treat greasy hair is to use an shampoo, that is healthy for your hair and use this regularly. A sufficient way to treat it is shampooing your hair one time every day. Washing more than one time per day could lead the glands to overreact and produce more oil, which is not good for the hair.
