People have greasy hair because of hypersensitivity of sebaceous glands to some hormones. This is a sad fact and you can’t change it. What’s make it even worse is that greasy hair often go hand in hand with hair loss. However, there are some hair care products and methods of treatment that can help to cope with the problem.

Tip 1: Relax your scalp

If the scalp produces too much grease, this happens because of congenital hypersensitivity of sebaceous glands to the hormone testosterone. This sensitivity is more pronounced during puberty. Cosmetics and other hair care treatments can’t significantly change this situation. However, you can prevent further irritation of sebaceous glands that can occur, for example, because of frequent brushing or because of a hot air dryer. It is also advisable not to use too hot water for hair washing and consider whether your shampoo really suits your hair and scalp well. Light massage produces a calming and relaxing effect. There are a lot of relaxing hair care treatments, which can be rubbed into the head-skin and left for some minutes before washing. They will help to relax your scalp and prevent dandruff.

Tip 2: Wash your hair daily, but do it correctly

Daily washing with a mild shampoo will not allow fat on your scalp to be distributed on your hair. It is best of all to use a shampoo for normal hair, as it contains active cleaning substances, which are rather soft and safe for everyday use. It will help you to keep your head always clean without damaging your hair and irritating the head-skin. Shampoos for oily hair contain stronger active detergents. Use these shampoos only in cases when your hair is very greasy, dirty and stuck.

Tip 3: Dry your hair in the fresh air

A haircut that requires no hair dryer or other hairstyling means of the kind would be ideal. First of all, it saves time; Second of all, it will help you to spare the scalp and ends of hair. Dry your hair in the fresh air. If drying takes too much time, you can use a cone hairdryer. Push your head forward, and pull your hair at the roots with your fingers while drying. This will give it some extra volume.

Tip 4: Apply shampoo only to the roots

Washing the roots of hair alone is a good solution for greasy and oily hair, especially if you have damaged hair ends. To do this you need a bottle with a spout-syringe. Mix one part of shampoo for greasy hair and four parts of warm water. Apply this mixture directly to the roots of hair with the use of the syringe. Foam it and then rinse immediately. Some foam that gets on your hair while rinsing is enough to make it clean in this particular case.

Tip 5: Don’t keep you hair flat

All hair styles that don’t make your hair lie flat on your head are good enough. They include light back combing or using some forming spray at the roots while keeping your head bent. If you want to use a hairdryer to add some fixity, always check whether the flow of hot air doesn’t affect the scalp and irritate sebaceous glands. A foam fixer is also recommended.

A person with perfect hair is very rare. So when we speak about healthy hair we often mean hair that looks pretty good and when there are no obvious problems with it. But quite often hair problems go beyond all reasonable borders it’s high time to consider proper hair care right off the bat. Dandruff is one of the main problems of this kind.

At present one of the main causes why dandruff appears on the scalp is the so called causal fungus. Spores of this fungus are always present on the head-skin. And under certain conditions the fungus turns active and starts its extensive propagation. Among the causes are: stress, weakened immune system, unhealthy food, disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, hormonal shifts. The cycle of scalp cell development changes significantly: instead of a month it reduced in time to one week.

As a result, we have lots of sticky and greasy whitish and yellowish flakes on our heads. Their amount dramatically exceeds the norm, that’s why they become noticeable to the naked eye. But if there is also itching and reddening on certain parts of the head-skin, then it could be symptoms of seborrhea. It is important to distinguish these two skin problems: in case of dandruff it is often enough to use some cosmetic means, but when it comes to seborrhea, it means a serious treatment.

Seborrhea is a headskin disease, which is characterized by excessive sebum formation. This is usually caused by certain diseases and disorders in the organism, hormonal changes, hereditary predisposition, intoxication, etc. You can find out whether you have dandruff or seborrhea by yourself: dandruff usually looks like rather small whitish flakes, but in case of seborrhea flakes are pretty large, rigid, and yellowish. Still there is one rule – never try to treat seborrhea by yourself. Only a qualified specialist can make good diagnosis and prescribe proper treatment.

Dandruff is seldom the only problem with your scalp and hair: dry hair is often accompanied with dry dandruff, and greasy hair – with the greasy one. Therefore, it is important to struggle with several problems simultaneously, i.e. apply complex treatment.

It is necessary to keep in mind that hair care is a lifetime job. You just can’t take care of your hair for a month and then hope that it will remain healthy and strong for the rest of your life. So take care!
