Let’s talk science!
As mentioned before, the grease in your hair actually has a name: sebum. Sebum is an oily or waxy substance specifically designed to lubricate and water-proof your skin, scalp and hair. It’s highly beneficial to people and animals but unfortunately for some individuals, their scalps can produce more than is desirable. Sebum is produced all over your body by your sebaceous glands, located at the base of your hair follicles, but is by far the most prevalent on your head and face. It can often seem like washing your hair just isn’t doing the trick, with the oils returning shortly afterwards and leading to that lank, uncomfortable feeling as it falls, greasy and unappealing, over your face and shoulders.
