Common Causes of Greasy Hair
Although genetics is one of the main causes of excessive oil production, there are other lifestyle factors that increase production levels which can be controlled. Read on to discover the 6 biggest causes of excess sebum and find out how to make your hair less greasy.
If one of your parents has greasy hair, we’re sorry to have to be the bearer of bad news but they may have passed this onto you. Don’t worry though, this doesn’t mean that all hope is lost. While we can’t do anything about our genes, using the right products can bring your oil levels under control. Using a shampoo and conditioner for oily hair like CLEAR Ice Cool Menthol Anti-dandruff Shampoo as part of your regular hair care will help to keep your scalp in check.
2. Your hair is straight
If people with curly hair have to deal with dryness and frizzy hair, those with straight hair suffer from the opposite. This is because straight hair lacks texture and coil, which makes it easier for the oils to move down from the roots. The best solution for this is to shift to a shampoo that’s specifically designed for oily hair
3. Hormone imbalance
When you have a hormone imbalance, you will experience various effects on your body, including weight loss or gain, acne, and even greasy hair. Whether the change is brought about by menopause, pregnancy, or puberty, it can definitely affect the amount of oil your hair produces.
4. Frequently touching the hair
When we feel like our hair is super soft and smooth, we are tempted to caress it and feel it often. What you don’t know is that the oil and dirt from your hands are transferred to your hair, making it oily. Also, when you brush your hair too much, you are making it greasier because brushing distributes the oils and also stimulates the scalp to produce more sebum. So, hands off your hair, please.
