RAUSCH | Embarrassing for everyone who has experienced it: oily hair

Many people are familiar with the scenario: shortly after washing hair it already looks lank and oily and appears umkempt. There are many reasons for a tendency to oily hair, against which those affected are usually fairly helpless. But there are ways of coming to grips with the problem. Principally it is due to increased sebum production which is excreted by the sebaceous glands in the scalp and passes onto the hair. If the glands are over-productive then the hair becomes oilier faster. If sebum production is correspondingly lower then the opposite is the case: the hair becomes brittle and split. So it is necessary to restrict the production but without de-greasing the scalp too heavily!
