No one wants to have a greasy hair, as it looks dirty and dingy. However, it is not only a result of not taking a shower.
Greasy hair is most commonly caused by the excessive production of sebum by the sebaceous glands of the scalp. The overproduction of sebum can contribute to an oily look, as well as scalp ache, or known as seborrheic dermatitis, dandruff, and itchiness.
Moreover, greasy hair can lead to loss of the natural shine and luster, and hair thinning. We suggest you a natural way to treat greasy hair:
