What causes Oily Scalp | Solution for Oily Scalp
Those with oily skin are prone to oily scalp and hair, scalp itchiness and even scalp acne.
WHAT CAUSES OILY SCALP
The most common cause of an oily scalp is heredity. A certain hormone present in the genes, dihydrotestosterone, causes oily skin. This hormone is genetically transferred so if someone in your family has oily skin, chances are high that you will have the same too.
Hereditary conditions cannot be eliminated but scalp oiliness can be reduced with special attention to scalp care and remedies from PHS HAIRSCIENCE. Another major cause of an oily scalp condition is poor hygiene. Without adequate and thorough cleansing, excess sebum on the scalp accumulates, resulting in buildup that causes severe scalp disorders over time.
BALANCE YOUR SCALP’S ECOSYSTEM
An oily scalp is the result of excess sebum. The scalp feels heavy and hair is limp and can even be sticky with grease. This excess oil attracts dirt and bacteria, which causes the scalp to itch. Pimples may start to form on the scalp while hair feels and looks dirty. When left untreated, an oily scalp can clog hair follicles and eventually lead to hair loss.
The best way to manage scalp sebum production is to combine specialised scalp treatments along with the best shampoo for oily scalp and hair loss in your daily scalp care regime.
TREATING OILY HAIR AND SCALP
In Singapore, itchy, oily scalps require specific care and treatment. Over-stimulation using shampoos for oily scalp and hair that are laden with chemicals may feel good immediately after shampooing because of the soapy bubbles and squeaky clean feel. Over time, however, the harmful chemicals may result in more problems and damage to your scalp, and even dry out hair.
Our scalp treatment for oily scalp the Advance Scalp Repair Treatment – available in Singapore islandwide – uses high concentrations of botanical essences and stem cell technology to regulate sebum production and reduce scalp inflammation. Together with trichologist-developed deep cleansing techniques, the scalp is restored to a balanced, healthy state, and hair regains vitality, body and weightlessness.
MANAGING OILY SCALP AT HOME
Excess sebum can clog hair follicles and impede new hair growth and eventually lead to hair loss. Oily scalp requires constant maintenance, especially in Singapore’s climate. Manage oily scalp conditions and refresh your scalp through specialised scalp treatments and shampoos for oily scalp.
Contrary to popular belief, long-term use of an anti-dandruff shampoo can lead to scalp dryness and other problems. Washing your hair and scalp right is the most effective way to reduce sebum production through PHS HAIRSCIENCE Signature Double Cleanse, the first step in our Daily Regime.
The first step of the Double Cleanse starts with the ADV Nutrition Shampoo. Suitable for all scalp types, this daily deep cleansing scalp shampoo thoroughly removes surface grime and oil, leaving the scalp purified and hair roots perfectly clean.
A second correcting shampoo, our ADV Purify Shampoo, a clarifying shampoo regulates sebum production, removes excess oil and refreshes scalp. Once the scalp ecosystem is balanced and scalp no longer feels overly greasy, switch to an anti-hair loss shampoo.
