    woman treating her hair at home

     

    If your hair is often limp, greasy-looking and flat even though you shampoo daily, you have an oily scalp condition that needs to be care for properly, ASAP! That’s because oily scalp can cause worse problems than unsightly, hard-to-manage hair. Left untreated, oily scalp can lead to issues like hair follicle blockage, dandruff, itching, infection, and even hair loss.

    Not everyone can afford the time for oily scalp treatments like H2 Advance Scalp Repair Treatment. Fortunately, there are some oily scalp products and remedies you can try at home!

     

    1. Massage Oily Scalp with Pure Argan Oil

    It sounds counter-intuitive, but massaging high-quality, pure argan oil into your scalp and hair will help to redistribute oil, stimulate blood circulation and manage oil secretion. Then, wrap your head with a towel and leave on for 30 minutes to 1 hour before shampooing as usual.

    2. Choose the Best Oily Scalp Shampoo

    Singapore’s hot, humid weather can exacerbate an oily scalp problem. Shampooing daily is a must, and it’s wise to pick a specialised care shampoo that regulates sebum secretion without stripping the scalp of natural oils and moisture. ADV Purify Shampoo uses a high concentration of plant stem cells and Korean botanical essences for gentle, effective oil control and to prevent dandruff.

    3. Exfoliate Weekly to Prevent Scalp Disorders

    Excess sebum, dead skin cells, dirt and sweat can accumulate very rapidly when your scalp is on the oily side. Besides shampooing daily to get ride of surface gunk, it’s a good idea to exfoliate your scalp at least once a week for a deep, clarifying cleanse. Maintaining a clean, fresh scalp goes a long way in ensuring healthy hair growth, and preventing scalp problems like dandruff, itching or hair loss. Not a fan of abrasive scalp scrubs? Try ADV Elixir, a unique serum exfoliant that does the job gently yet thoroughly.

    4. Eat Plenty of B Vitamins

    It is extremely important to get a balanced, nutritious diet, in order to meet the scalp and hair’s nutritional needs. Vitamins, especially vitamins B2 and B6, are helpful in regulating scalp secretion and maintaining scalp health. Find them in eggs, shellfish and some dairy products. Many people find it hard to fulfil their daily nutrition needs through food intake alone. If you are one of them, consider supplementing your diet with a multivitamin.
