Keeping Your Scalp Healthy Even When It’s Oily
Everyone is unique, and some of us are born with oily scalps. It means that the skin on our heads produces more sebum than others. Excessive sebum production can cause greasy hair, which can affect our confidence and result in an unhealthy scalp. Zoraida Dominican Salon is the leading provider of hair care services in Maryland. As experts in ensuring that your hair stays healthy and vibrant, we advocate for keeping your scalp healthy as well. So if you have an oily scalp, don’t let these tips on keeping it healthy slide.
- Wash your hair right.
On top of ensuring that you understand whether you need to wash your hair more or wash it less, you also need to learn how to wash it properly. Step one is massaging just an ample amount of shampoo on your scalp, and step two is making sure you get rid of all the shampoo.
- Use sulfate-free and lightweight shampoo.
If your hair is already producing too much oil, you may not need the moisturizing ones. On the same note, shampoo with sulfate strips your hair’s natural oils, causing your scalp to produce more oil.
- Adopt a healthy lifestyle.
Just like the rest of our bodies, the health of our scalp depends on what we eat and what we do to stay healthy. Avoiding stress and eating healthy foods can help control the oil.
If your oily hair is affecting your self-esteem and causing redness, itchiness, and flaking on your scalp, you can talk about this with us at our hair salon in Lanham, Maryland. We can provide you with insights and recommend great styling tips.
