  • Oily Scalp

An oily scalp is easy to determine. If an individual is bothered with greasiness and oiliness on his scalp all day even after washing his hair, he might have an oily scalp. An oily scalp occurs when the sebaceous gland becomes over-active and produces an extra amount of natural oil Sebum. This happens due to several factors such as hormonal changes, genetics, and even some hair products that can contribute to making your scalp oily.

Oily Scalp

There are some suggestions through which you can manage your oily scalp;

  • Keep your scalp clean with clarifying shampoo:

    Use Eazicolor anti-residue clarifying shampoo to eradicate excessive or unnecessary oil from your hair scalp. Our anti-residue shampoo is the perfect solution to remove oil debris from your scalp and also make your hair smooth and shiny.

    Say no to hot water. Hot water can strip out the natural oil from your scalp and provoke Sebaceous Gland to release redundant oil. Make use of lukewarm water to keep your strands protected from unnecessary oil.


  • Acne Susceptible scalp

Just like facial acne our scalp also experiences acne. It can manifest as pimples, red lumps, and white or blackheads on the hair scalp. This eventuates due to the unnecessary production of natural oil, dead skin cells, and environmental pollutants. Oily scalp attracts more dirt and dust, also when oil interacts with dead skin cells it clogs the hair follicles and creates build-ups. Which becomes a culprit of causing acne in the scalp. If you detect red lumps and pimples in your scalp you may have an acne scalp.

Acne Susceptible hair scalp

Some ways to deal with acne-susceptible scalp:
