What Causes Oily Hair and How to Fix It

Hair stylists often refer to oily hair as a condition where too much sebum is produced by the glands present in the skin. This causes a shiny appearance of hair strands which makes an individual appear as though he or she has not washed their hair for several days. The most typical places that are affected by oily hair include the forehead, nose, eyelids, and ears. Sometimes an unpleasant odor can develop from oily hair.

The Oily Hair Problem

Oily hair often appears as strands of hair that are very shiny and appear wet or greasy. Oily hair may be indicative of a hormonal imbalance, an underlying medical condition, or simply a lack of proper hygiene. Oily hair can affect people of all ages, but it is most common in teenagers and young adults.

Causes Of Oily Hair

Oily hair may be caused by several factors and has been associated with skin conditions such as acne and rosacea. Oily hair can also be caused by hormonal imbalances and genetics. The most common causes of oily hair include:

  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Hormonal Imbalances
  • Genetics

Oily hair could also be a sign that an individual does not shampoo their hair frequently enough, or is using a poorly formulated shampoo.

Many people with oily hair often claim that they do not use conditioner because they feel like it makes their hair look oiler, faster. This is a false premise, as not conditioning your hair causes more issues related to oily hair. Your hair needs moisture. Conditioning your hair repairs it and keeps it healthy, think of all the heat, sun, and styling damage your hair goes through. Also, if you don’t keep your scalp moisturized, your body may actually produce more sebum to correct itself, which is the root cause of oily hair.
