So your scalp is oily AF. It looks like an oil slick no matter how many times you’ve washed it. But that could be exactly why your scalp is greasy – you might be washing it way too often.
The scalp works the same way as your face – over-cleansing strips your scalp of its natural oils, and it needs these natural oils to stay healthy and keep its oil levels balanced. If the natural oils are stripped from your scalp, your scalp will compensate by producing more oil, leading to a scalp that gets greasier even faster.
And when you have an oily scalp, it might feel like your hair, especially at the roots, is oily because the oil gets transferred. But that doesn’t mean you should not wash it at all, because oil build-up also makes hair at the roots greasy. Yes, it’s slippery slope, we know.
But fret not, we have tips on how to deal with it so you can “train” your scalp to be less oily.
