Managing excess sebum: tips for balancing your scalp

Oily hair is the result of excessive sebum production by the sebaceous glands of the scalp. Although sebum is essential for naturally hydrating hair, overproduction can lead to greasy, weighed down strands. Several factors can contribute to this imbalance, including genetics, hormonal, environmental factors and even improper hair care habits.

Practical tips for treating oily hair:

Choose the right products:

Mild shampoos

The first step to treating oily hair is to choose hair products specifically designed to regulate sebum production. Opt for gentle, sulfate-free shampoos, which cleanse deeply without damaging your scalp. Avoid products that are too rich or contain heavy oils.

Proper washing:

Proper washing

Washing your hair regularly is essential to remove excess sebum and accumulated impurities. However, don't overdo it either, as excessive washing can further stimulate sebum production. Try to wash your hair every two to three days with lukewarm water.

Use lukewarm water:

Lukewarm water

Hot water can stimulate oil production, so opt for lukewarm or cool water when washing your hair. Additionally, avoid washing your hair with too hot water in the shower, as this can also impact the health of your scalp.

When you wash your hair, take the time to gently massage your scalp. This stimulates blood circulation and can help regulate sebum production. Use your fingertips and avoid rubbing vigorously, as this can irritate your scalp.

Natural care:

hair scrubs

From time to time, use an exfoliating scalp treatment. Hair scrubs can help remove dead cells and excess oil, leaving your scalp cleaner and more balanced. Be sure to use a scrub specifically designed for the scalp.

Balanced diet :

Balanced diet

Your diet also plays a role in the health of your hair. Foods high in saturated fats and sugars can influence sebum production. Opt for a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and essential fatty acids to promote a healthy scalp.


Treating oily hair requires a holistic approach. By choosing the right products, adopting good washing habits and nourishing your body from the inside out, you can maintain a balanced and revitalized scalp. With a little care and attention, you can say goodbye to greasy hair and welcome light, healthy strands.
