Health Tip: Keep Oily Hair Under Control
-- Excessively oily hair can contribute to acne on the face, back, and shoulders.
The U.S. National Library of Medicine offers these suggestions for keeping oily hair under control:
- Wash hair thoroughly each day.
- Leave shampoo on for at least five minutes before rinsing.
- Don't brush hair too frequently or vigorously, as it can spread oil through the rest of the hair.
- Talk to your doctor about contributing factors to excess oil production, including stress and hormones found in birth control pills.
