Oily scalp is the condition where the sebaceous gland produces excess oil. Sebaceous glands can be found on in all areas of the skin except two places, the palms and soles of your feet. Sebaceous glands are either connected to your hair follicles or exist independently. As you have guessed it, the sebaceous glands causing you oily scalp are those connected to your hair follicles. Many websites also give explanations on oily scalp but to be honest, a simple hair scan will show you what this means:
If you have oily scalp, this will lead to irritation, itchiness (ultimately may lead to itchy scalp), greasy hair and, possibly, even hair loss if left untreated for too long! Excess oiliness leads to clogged hair pores, this causes unhealthy hair growth; hair growing out of clogged pores are usually thinner than normal hairs. In addition, the itchiness can lead to scratching which could damage the hair follicles and even introduce harmful bacteria to the scalp if finger nails are not clean (which usually aren’t!).
Oily scalp could also lead to dandruff, albeit a different type from having dry scalp.
Dandruff caused by oiliness (yellow) vs Dandruff called by Dryness (white)
The dandruff flakes caused by excess oiliness is usually larger than its counterpart. Dandruff can be quite embarrassing and could affect the confidence of an individual.
Oily scalp is a common condition here in Southeast Asian Countries due to the hot and humid weather.
From our customer survey, 24% of our customers come for treatment because of oily scalp!
The humid and hot weather tend to cause sebaceous glands to go into overdrive, producing more oil than the scalp needs. Plus, perspiration from the head also causes the perspiration to accumulate in the scalp, again, encouraging more oil production, leading to oily scalp.
If you have oily scalp, you should use a suitable shampoo, one that clears out the oil. You will find that there are shampoos that caters specifically for each hair condition, i.e. Dandruff, damaged hair, oily scalp, dry scalp, etc. Go for the one suitable for oily scalp, this should be shampoos with pH Values ranging from 5.5 to 6.8. Shampoo and wash daily if necessary. Ensure that you thoroughly wash your scalp and be sure to rinse-out the shampoo thoroughly after washing. Also, if you use conditioner, apply only it on your hair ends and not onto the scalp.
If that is not enough, get a hair tonic that is suitable for oily scalp condition. This is additional care for your scalp that you can do to keep the grease away!

This question is similar to asking if it necessary to exercise? Well, most people don’t and most of them go out of shape. Those lucky ones with good genes can still stay relatively in shape even if they do not exercise. Some unlucky ones, continue to put on weight even though they could be eating healthy and exercising regularly.
Taking care of your scalp is similar. Although we take the health of our scalp for granted much more often than not. If your hair is important to you, and you want to maintain your hairs as you age, then scalp treatment is necessary. If hair is not at all important to your image and outlook, then it is not necessary. After all, some men rather shave and grow a beard.
Other than the most obvious benefit which is to improve the health of your scalp so as to combat and prevent common hair issues such as: Hair loss, oily scalp, dandruff, sensitive scalp and white hair. Scalp treatment is also very relaxing and helps you get away (temporarily) from the stresses of this world. Also, post treatment, your scalp will feel less irritable and fresh.
If you are suffering from oily scalp, you should avoid chemical treatments such as: hair colouring, rebonding, perming etc, this is because the chemicals contained in the treatment can irritate your sebaceous glands and even damage it.
Also, you should also avoid shampoo for dry and damaged hair, because it is in such shampoos nature to encourage more oil production for people who have dry scalp. If you google, you might find articles recommending many types of shampoo like this, do take caution and check the ingredients used in the shampoo.
In addition, when using conditioner, do not apply the condition on your scalp but only to the hair ends, this is because hair conditioner contains silicone oil, also known as Dimethicone, Dimethicone is difficult to remove, especially if it gets stuck in the hair pores. Hence, for those with oily scalp and dry hair ends, it is better to use a normal shampoo and conditioner separately rather than a 2-in-1 conditioning shampoo. Other hair products such as wax, hair gel, hair spray should be avoided if possible as they contain chemicals which can clog the hair pores causing further oiliness.
