What Causes Greasy Hair

This is a classic case of too much good, can also do you bad. That’s because the scalp naturally produce oils called sebum, which moisturise and protect the hair. However, when sebum production goes into overdrive, it can leave our strands looking slick and greasy. Several factors can rev up sebum production, including genetics, hormonal changes, overwashing (the irony), climate, diet, and even stress. So, if you're wondering why your hair resembles an oil slick, it could be due to any number of these greasy culprits.

How To Prevent Greasy Hair

Now that we know what's behind the grease, let's talk prevention. The key to keeping greasy hair at bay lies in adopting some healthy hair habits. Start by choosing the right hair care products for your hair type—the ones that help remove excess oil and refresh your scalp without stripping your hair of its natural moisture. Avoid heavy, oil-based styling products, and try not to over-wash your hair, as this can trigger your scalp to produce even more oil to compensate.
