Oily Hair

I too have had this oily problem that has lasted so far about 3 or 4 weeks. I just had a baby 9 weeks ago. I bet it is hormonal.  But what will help and when will it go away..?

Hi

What symptoms are associated with this problem?

Are there greasy scales present on the hair?

This may be a mild form of seborrheic dermatitis. Frequent and vigorous shampooing even with regular shampoo may be able to help. If scales or dandruff is present then medicated shampoos may be used .It is important that vigorous shampooing is employed. Scrubbing the scalp vigorously with your fingers will be necessary. The manner and the frequency of shampooing are far more important than the type of medicated shampoos used.
