One of the main reasons of oily scalp is sebum excess. Sebum excess appears if there are some hormonal imbalances in the body, humidity, poor diet or seborrheic dermatitis. This excess oily scalp production leads to skin inflammation.
The scalp may have that oily look if you don’t wash your hair frequently or you haven’t rinse it well after your last hair wash, and there are shampoo residues on it. Androgenic hormones control sebum production, so a hormonal imbalance often leads to sebum excess. This oily problem is common in teenagers, especially among boys. Such hormonal imbalances can also occur during pregnancy.
