Greasy hair: what to do? Causes, natural remedies and the most suitable shampoo

Wondering why your hair is greasy? When the hair is greasy and oily, it is called greasy hair , it usually has a translucent appearance, looks dirty and heavy and gives off a bad smell coming from the scalp.
Touch and sight cause an unpleasant sensation that can make the person concerned and those around him uncomfortable. Not infrequently, the appearance of dandruff and itching occurs.

It's all about how it works of the sebaceous glands present on the skin which secrete and deposit sebum in the hair fiber.

The sebum accumulated in the scalp is produced naturally and is composed of waxes and neutral fats with oily properties. Sebum is necessary for our body because it prevents the skin from drying out and protects it from external aggressions . It is therefore a natural lubricant that protects the hair.

In the case of oily hair , the sebaceous glands are more active and can produce more sebum than normal. This excessive production depends on gender and age but also on the use of sulphates and silicones, "forbidden" substances for oily hair. The sulphates strip the hair fiber of the necessary natural oils, while the silicones prevent the scalp from breathing, all of which forces the sebaceous glands to produce more sebum and consequently increase the oiliness of the hair. For this reason, the best choice is to opt for an organic shampoo, without silicones, sls, parabens, mineral oils, artificial colors and synthetic perfumes.

Washing your hair too often creates a vicious circle: subjecting your hair to frequent washing with non-specific products would be like ordering the sebaceous glands to work harder and produce more sebum.
