Oily Scalp

Oily scalp is caused by overactive sebaceous glands on the scalp. The oil traps environmental pollutants & dirty residues onto your scalp causing clogged follicles. It makes your hair sticky and looks greasy or flat. Without proper treatment, oily sebum may lead to weakened scalp over time, causing massive hair loss, itchy scalp, dandruff and damaged hairs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the tell-tale signs of oily scalp:

– Your hair looks and feels shiny and flat (not in a good way) or just after a day of washing
– Your hair clumps together or feels extremely greasy as the day progresses despite washing
– You often experience uncomfortable itchiness on your scalp
– You get pimples on the scalp or forehead area

High humidity – Having hot and humid weather especially in Southeast Asia, stimulates the sebaceous glands to overproduce oil and more sweat to be secreted on the scalp. Hence, resulting in an oily scalp.

Seborrheic dermatitis – A type of eczema that may lead to sebaceous glands overproducing scalp sebum, leading to itchy, inflamed and oily scalp.

Wrong hair products – Incorrect hair products may be too rich for your scalp, or cause buildup and even left over residues not washed off properly that contribute to greasy scalp and hair.

Other factors contributing to oily scalp include hormonal disruptions, scalp congestion, poor scalp circulation, overwashing, unhealthy diet and high stress level.

People with oily hair should consider washing their hair once every 1 – 2 days, to avoid accumulated build up of dead skin cells that can lead to issues such as dandruff, clogged hair follicles, acne or hair loss.
