Greasy hair: causes and remedies

Greasy hair: causes and remedies


Greasy hair can be the result of multiple causes, so it’s important to find the right solution. Try the new Rebalancing treatment to deeply cleanse the scalp, at home or in a Davines salon.

Oil on our scalp (also known as sebum) is produced by the sebaceous glands located at the end of the hair follicles. Sebum is essential both for building a hydrolipid layer that protects the skin from external agents — such as the sun, the cold or bacteria — and because it promotes the scalp’s hydration. Excess quantities of sebum, however, can be a problem, not just for your appearance but also for the well-being of your scalp.


The causes of greasy hair

There are people whose hair is naturally drier and people whose hair is more prone to oiliness. But if you notice a change in your usual sebum production, the following common reasons might be to blame for your hair suddenly becoming greasier:
  • Changes in diet
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Digestive issues
  • Stress and nerve-related factors

In Davines salons, our hairdressers can analyze the condition of your scalp and recommend the service that’s best suited to your hair’s level of oiliness.

Natural ingredients to counter greasy hair  

Rebalancing Shampoo Davines Naturaltech

The Rebalancing purifying service contains a pool of active ingredients — such as extracts of ginger, cinnamon and burnet — that play a key role in the regulation of sebum, thanks to their effective astringent properties.

  • Ginger is known for its stimulant and purifying activity.
  • Cinnamon is rich in tannins and, traditionally, has been used as a source of natural anti-bacterial substances.
  • Burnet is a flower of the Rosaceae family like the rose, apple and strawberry, used in Chinese medicine for centuries and known for its excellent astringent properties.
