รู้สาเหตุ พร้อมวิธีแก้ปัญหาหนังศีรษะมัน ผมแห้ง

Having an oily scalp and roots or dry hair and ends are common hair care concerns that men and women encounter, which can affect one’s appearance and confidence. The best way to handle these issues is to understand their causes before learning ways to treat them. This article will take you through what causes a smelly scalp and dry hair, as well as share some treatment tips you can do at home.

What Causes a Smelly Scalp?

A smelly scalp problem can have several causes, including:

Sebum Production

Generally, sebaceous glands on the scalp produce sebum, an oily substance that moisturizes and protects your scalp and hair. However, for some people, their sebaceous glands may not function properly, affecting their sebum production for several reasons, such as hormonal imbalance and genetics. Some medications can also lead to overproduction of sebum, causing a smelly scalp.

Scalp Hygiene

Hygienic practices, such as not washing your hair for a long time, can result in the buildup of impurities on the scalp. Additionally, using a hair product that irritates or destroys the scalp’s natural pH balance can lead to an excessively oily scalp.

Environmental Factors

Humidity, heat, and air pollution can activate the sebaceous glands to overproduce sebum and cause a smelly scalp.

What Causes Dry Hair?

Excessively dehydrated hair with dry ends may be caused by the following factors:

Lack of Hair Moisture

Dry hair is caused by the loss of hair porosity, or the hair’s ability to absorb and retain moisture. Excessive thermal styling, the use of harsh hair products, and environmental factors such as sunlight and dry weather can contribute to the loss of moisture in the hair.

Overwashing Hair

Washing your hair too often or using too many harsh products on your hair may strip the scalp of its natural sebum and cause hair to become dry and brittle.

Nutritional Deficiencies

When your body lacks necessary nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and fats, it can also cause your hair to lose moisture, leading to dry hair issues.

Simple Tips to Relieve Oily Scalp and Dry Hair

Oily scalp and dry hair have many causes, but there are several ways to alleviate these problems:

Wash hair regularly

Gently wash your hair every other day or every two days for a healthy scalp.

Use gentle-formula shampoo

Choose a shampoo with a gentle formula that contains no sulfates. Using a specifically made shampoo for oily scalp and dry hair conditions is even better. Avoid shampoos and hair products that contain harsh substances and chemicals that can remove your hair’s natural oil or cause scalp irritations.

Use hair conditioner

After a hair wash, apply an enriching conditioner only to the ends of your hair, avoiding the scalp.

Choose scalp-friendly hair products

Typically, the pH on the scalp ranges between 4.5 and 5.5 on the scale. Use a product with a pH similar to your scalp to maintain a balanced pH, prevent the growth of bacteria and fungi, and alleviate dry hair.

Refrain from excessive thermal hair styling

Using hair styling tools such as a straightener, curler, or hair dryer with high heat can affect your scalp’s health and lead to oily roots and dry ends.

Hydrate from the inside out

Maintain sufficient water intake and include nutrient-rich foods in your diet, such as avocado, beans, fatty fish, and green leafy vegetables. These are beneficial for both your scalp and hair health.

Use natural ingredients

To reduce sebum healthily, you can try tea tree oil, witch hazel, or aloe vera gel. For dry hair, nourishing treatments, such as coconut oil or argan oil, are recommended to moisturize and enhance hair texture.

Protect your hair

Whenever engaging in outdoor activities, protect your hair from the harmful effects of the sun’s UV rays and other environmental factors by wearing a hat or using an umbrella.
