If you regularly use a lot of styling products such as gel, hairspray, cream, and pomade, remember to rinse your scalp everyday to avoid buildup and clogged pores. Slicking the hair down with heavy gels or applying too much pomade or grease to the scalp are just a couple of examples of how blockage at the mouth of the hair follicle can occur. Blockage can lead to scalp infection, damage and reduced hair growth, so it is important to wash your hair and scalp regularly. Keep your scalp pores clear, and try to use water-soluble styling products whenever possible.
Hair | Tips | grease
A healthy and clean scalp naturally secretes oils for lubrication, so there is no need to grease or apply oil every day. Sometimes different factors, such as extreme weather conditions, can cause the scalp to feel dry, so you may need to use a product. Oil is great for relieving dry and itchy scalp--just apply a few drops to your fingertips and gently massage onto the affected area. The days of applying pomade directly to your freshly washed scalp as a routine are long and gone--only oil or grease your scalp as needed.
