Why do you get oily hair?

Oily hair occurs when the sebaceous glands overproduce fat. The sebaceous glands are the body's hair follicles and are the ones that produce fat. Sebum - or fat - is actually necessary for us as it protects our skin, keeping it moisturised and preventing it from drying out and becoming too fragile and delicate.

The production of fat by the sebaceous glands depends mainly on hormonal influences. When you reach puberty, there are more hormones in the body, which causes the sebaceous glands to produce more fat. This is why there is a risk of developing blemished skin, acne and extra oily hair during puberty.

The body's hormones are not something you can control. Therefore, you cannot do anything about the sebaceous glands' production of fat. Oily hair is therefore determined by the hormones in your body, which you cannot do anything about.

However, another cause of oily hair can also be excessive washing. Many people mistakenly believe that if you have oily hair, you need to wash your hair more often. The problem is that when you wash your hair, you remove all the oil from the sebaceous glands and the glands will immediately produce more oil than before, keeping our skin and hair moisturised and preventing it from drying out. Therefore, the sebaceous glands will make you keep having oily hair as you are in a vicious cycle.

So how do you avoid oily hair?

First of all, as mentioned above, avoid washing your hair too much. When you wash your hair, use an anti-greasy hair shampoo. This will balance your scalp so that you don't produce too much or too little oil in your sebaceous glands.

Another good hairdressing tip is to wash your hair twice when you wash it if you want a really good effect. The first time, it cleans your hair and removes bacteria and dirt. The second time you wash it, the shampoo conditions and enhances the hair and protects it until the next wash.

Healing Ground

The story of healing tea trees dates back thousands of years and it originates from the Aboriginal people of Australia. Their legends describe lakes surrounded by tea trees. Falling leaves and twigs from the tea trees leached their essential oils into the water and turned the lakes into antiseptic baths. The local Aborigines used these natural, healing spas to treat a number of conditions, such as skin infection, burns, cuts and insect bites.

They named the land with tea trees “Healing Ground”.
