Get­ting rid of oily hair

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STAR SPECIAL -

OILY hair can be ex­tremely frus­trat­ing and is un­de­ni­ably one of the most com­mon woes that the ma­jor­ity face in this mod­ern era.

Ac­cord­ing to the 101 Hair Care clien­tele data­base, ap­prox­i­mately 96% are di­ag­nosed with hair fall and scalp prob­lems due to an oily scalp.

This con­di­tion af­fects peo­ple from all walks of life af­ter pu­berty to their 40s and af­fects both gen­ders.

Oily hair is the re­sult of ex­ces­sive pro­duc­tion of se­bum, which is the nat­u­ral oil se­creted by the se­ba­ceous glands on the scalp.

It plays an im­por­tant role for it seals hair cu­ti­cles and pro­tects hair and scalp from mois­ture loss, harm­ful UV rays, bac­te­ria and yeast.

Although se­bum is ben­e­fi­cial to us, ex­ces­sive or in­suf­fi­cient pro­duc­tion of se­bum can cause prob­lems.

Ex­ces­sive se­bum pro­duc­tion gives the ap­pear­ance of limp, sticky hair that looks unattrac­tive and makes it dif­fi­cult to style. It may even act like glue, at­tract­ing and trap­ping dirt par­ti­cles.

This in turn causes the devel­op­ment of an of­fen­sive smell, clump­ing of dead skin cells, hair fol­li­cle block­age and be­com­ing a breed­ing ground for bac­te­ria and mites.

If no proper ac­tion is taken, this con­di­tion can progress to scalp and fol­li­cle in­fec­tion as well as pre­ma­ture hair fall.

Although this con­di­tion could lead to pre­ma­ture hair fall in both gen­ders, 94% of the lead­ing cause is due to male pat­tern hair fall, based on 101 Hair Care’s sta­tis­ti­cal anal­y­sis in 2012.

Symp­toms of an oily scalp range from an over­pro­duc­tion of se­bum, thus giv­ing a “sticky” feel­ing to the hair, a heavy feel­ing on the head, itch­i­ness, dan­druff, ex­ces­sive hair fall, pre­ma­ture hair thin­ning and more.

It is very im­por­tant to get your scalp con­di­tion di­ag­nosed at an ex­pe­ri­enced and re­li­able hair care cen­tre and get cus­tomised treat­ment.
