Those who have oily hair, certainly will not envy - to maintain the appearance, they make water and shampoo much more than others, and the result is often doubtful.

Why do you need skin oil?

Sebaceous glands located near each follicle. Fat creates on the surface of the skin a unique cream of natural origin, possessing many useful properties, including antibacterial.

Cosmetologists call the fat-and-fat mixture on the skin "protective acid mantle", as fungi and microbes die in its chemically acidic environment.

The hair itself does not emit fat - it gets on them from the skin, due to the common property of all fats to constantly form a thin film.


Take a look at an open glass bottle with vegetable oil, and you will see how quickly it becomes oily outside, even if oil has not spilled from it.

Skin fat also just spreads through the hairs and envelops them. After fatty hair look unattractive, they do not want to touch - it's true.

On the other hand, for the fatty strands themselves, this film is very useful. Such a "cocoon" helps the hair follicles to preserve the natural moisture, makes them elastic and resistant to deformations.

Below it, the hairs are completely protected from the environment and undergo "treatment".

However, everything is good in moderation, and the positive properties of sebum are lost if it becomes too much. And it's not just aesthetics.

The "generous" layer of fat in the scalp hinders the air exchange and the withdrawal of waste products.

In the most severe cases, excessive salivation can lead to the appearance of oily dandruff, severe itching, combing and hair loss. Then you need to treat the fatty hair from the trichologist.

How to reduce the fat content of hair?

Very strongly on the activity of the sebaceous glands of the hair affects the diet. The problem of fatty hair occurs when you abuse sweet, spicy, fatty and floury.

Moving the daily menu towards healthier food, you will not only be able to improve the appearance of your hair, but also strengthen your health.

The saturation of the body with a liquid plays a very important role, it is recommended to drink about two liters of water daily for oily hair owners.

Can not be cured, but a quick perm may quickly hide fat.

There are good reviews about treatment at home with Sulsen paste with sulfur, despite the fact that according to the instructions it is intended to combat dandruff.

Bold type needs careful and thoughtful care - otherwise they will never look "perfect":

  1. In the process of care, the most important thing is not to provoke salo-dressing. This can be done by combing, massage, heating the skin with a hair dryer. It is not recommended to wash greasy hair with too hot water;
  2. If you have to use a hairdryer, turn it on to a less strong mode or direct the jet of air away from the skin;
