Male Vs Female Scalps
When it comes to scalp health, ladies are on a luckier streak. Studies have shown that the male scalp's protective layer is weaker than the female’s as it has lower levels of ceramides, making it more susceptible to protein loss – both of which are essential components to the scalp barrier.
Plus, men produce up to 60% more sebum than women. This adds up to males having a higher chance of developing excess oils, eventually leading to greasy scalp and hair.
On the flipside, females are more susceptible to dry scalp. Ladies, chemically-treating your hair may keep you looking hip and fresh every few months, but it also takes a toll on your hair by making it prone to dryness.
