Greasy hair

Why do we have oily hair?

There are many types of hair, but without a doubt oily is one of the most predominant. It is produced  by a very simple matter: the scalp has glands that produce sebum (the fat that protects the hair and keeps it healthy and healthy), but these glands produce more than they should. Specifically, our scalp produces 2 to 4 grams of fat (or sebum) every day.

Therefore, people with this type of problem have more matted and less shiny hair , and sometimes it can be accompanied by itching or inflammation of the scalp, among other things.

We already know that oily hair is caused by excess sebum, but what exactly causes this overactive glands? It can be due to several reasons, such as a hormonal imbalance, lack of B vitamins (specifically B7, specific for the functioning of the skin and hair), eating a diet that is too rich in fatty foods, suffering from stress or the abuse of products like gummies, lacquers or foams ...

In most cases, these hormonal imbalances respond to other problems and therefore cannot be avoided, but fear not: you can have perfect hair even if it has a tendency to get greasy. Next I explain what you should do.

How to take care of oily hair?

6 top tips

If you have had greasy skin and hair, you have to get used to the idea, because it is almost impossible to avoid it at the root, but it is easy to control its consequences πŸ˜› For example, we can use a natural bristle brush, which distributes the fat evenly throughout the hair and can balance the small accumulations of sebum on the scalp and distribute it to the ends. This is how we help prevent mixed hair: greasy hair at the roots and dry at the ends, as Pantene explains.

Here are some tips and tricks to keep oily hair at bay:

This is one of the most common doubts. How often is it advisable to wash your hair? Dr. Antonella Torsi, a professor of dermatology at the University of Miami, explains to Pantene that it is appropriate to do it twice a week . "You have to focus on the scalp," he explains. Also, remember that it is appropriate to wash it after physical exercise, since sweat can irritate it.

How should it be washed? Apply the shampoo directly to the scalp and massage it in, as this is the area where the most oil tends to accumulate. The most reliable indicator that your hair is clean is that the shampoo has formed bubbles or lather. Dirt and grease remove the foam, usually during the first lather ; so a second lather is recommended to clean the hair completely. According to expert hair doctors at the Pantene Hair Research Institute, you should only rinse your hair until you remove the shampoo. You know why? Because some ingredients are not activated until you clarify it. Who would have guessed it!

Contrary to what many people think, the conditioner does not make the hair greasy, but rather protects the hair structure and repels sebum . There is nothing to fear! To detangle without leaving a greasy feeling, apply the conditioner to the ends and work your way up without reaching the scalp.

What temperature should you use to wash your hair?

As the experts explain, it is best to use warm water , to be able to remove fat well, as well as traces of shampoo and conditioner, since cold water will not be able to wash away the traces of fat. As a general rule, it is recommended that the water is around 30 degrees . Of course, once the hair is clean we must rinse it with cold water (at about 20 degrees) to close the cuticle, add shine and help the hair last longer clean.

In order to control fat, Pablo Robledo, an expert at Pantene, explains this simple trick: incorporate two or three drops of natural lemon in the conditioner or mask.
