If you’ve noticed your hair becoming greasier, you may need to treat it with a different shampoo to ensure you get the oil undercontrol.

Your hair can change at different periods of your life, or even when the weather changes.

If you’ve noticed your hair becoming greasier, it may be one or more of these causes.

Causes of greasy hair

  1. Hormonal changes – Puberty or other changes in hormones can contribute to overproduction of natural oils.

  2. Genetics – Above-average oil production may run in your family.

  3. The weather – As the weather gets hotter, we perspire more and this can cause scalp oils to spread down the hair fibres, making hair appear greasier.

  4. Product buildup – Styling products can cling to the hair and make it appear oily and limp.
