8 Best Shampoos for Oily Scalp in Malaysia 2020

What Causes Oily Hair
Our scalp produces an oily substance called sebum through our oil glands, otherwise known as our sebaceous glands. Sebum improves the barrier of our skin and scalp, protecting them from damage and drying out.

However, oily hair is the result of overactive sebaceous glands producing too much sebum. Although sebum is good for the hair, too much can make your hair look slick and greasy. Common causes of oily hair are unhealthy eating habits, medications, improper haircare, stress, hormonal fluctuations, and change in weather.

A paraben is a preservative and it is used to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungus in shampoos. Compared to other, safer alternatives, they are cheaper, and mimic anti-microbial agents in plants.

However, Parabens can be bad for hair as they are easily absorbed through your skin and can be harmful to your scalp. Parabens can cause a number of problems for your hair including drying, irritating your scalp, fading your color, and even hair loss. 

It has also been found that parabens actually attach themselves to estrogen receptors, causing a weak estrogen effect on the body. Thus, parabens are also referred to as phytoestrogens. This may or may not cause breast cancer depending on which research you believe, but why take the risk?
