One of the most unpleasant hair problems is the excessive sebum secretion.
This natural oily substance is sometimes too rich, it spreads quickly all over the hair and it cannot be absorbed. This secretion makes the hair look greasy and give it the appearance of dirty hair, although it has been washed recently.
The causes of excessive sebum secretions are multiple and is a good thing to first discover them to be able to treat this problem properly. Teenagers may have this problem because of the changes that happen in their body at their age, older people can have it from different reasons like the diet, a health problem or external factors like the weather from the region they live in. Washing the hair too often, using inappropriate hair products can also be the causes of greasy, oily hair.
