Why is my hair so oily?

(And how to treat it!)

We hear you! The short version is that oily hair is caused by an imbalance in the natural production of sebum. 

The anatomy? Each hair strand is implanted in the hair follicle and linked to a sebaceous gland made up of sebocytes. Sebocytes secrete sebum, a complex mixture of fatty acids, sugars, waxes, and other natural compounds that form a protective barrier against water evaporation- the hair’s hydrolipidic film. 

So sebum isn’t ALL bad as it protects and strengthens the hair keeping it shiny and healthy. However, genetics, hormone changes, or even stress can increase oil production. 

Now while it seems logical that frequent hair washing is the best way to degrease your scalp, over-washing can strip the hair of its natural oils which can stimulate the scalp to produce EVEN MORE sebum in response- bad vibes for your scalp and for the environment; increasing your shower time and water usage.
