26Aug Best Products for: Oily or Dandruff Prone Scalp

Essential to glossy, healthy hair the sebum produced by your scalp can sometimes, unfortunately, also be responsible for leaving your hair oily and limp. Excess sebum production can often weigh down roots and result in an itchy, dandruff prone scalp. Often a cyclical problem, oily hair can be a little tricky to deal with at times. Whilst reaching for the shampoo bottle every day may seem like a simple solution, over-washing can in fact lead to increased sebum production as the scalp attempts to rebalance its natural oils. Further irritating the scalp, over-washing can also lead to dehydrated and split ends as the oil is repeatedly stripped from the hair’s length. Focusing on redistribution and rebalancing, our newest hair guide explores some of the best products to help soothe itchy scalps and control oil production to leave hair rejuvenated!
