A strong tallow production of the scalp, which can be genetically determined, influenced by hormonal changes, medication or stress, leads to a greasy film on the surface of the hair. This makes hair heavy and cloggy, thus the hair does appear lank and without volume. Greasy hair has a higher tendency to create dandruff. A mild shampoo (sebamed Every Day Shampoo) combined with the waiving of heavy conditioners, hairdos which leave the hair tight at the scalp and hats or caps are promising measures in order to get a grip of the problem. Unfortunately, no external measure can influence the tallow production. Shampoos with strong de-greasing effects should be avoided in order not to further irritate the scalp.
