The scalp contains abundant sebaceous glands, which are responsible for producing and secreting sebum. When excessive sebum is produced, it can lead to clogged hair follicles, resulting in the formation of scalp acne. People with oily skin types, who often experience greasy faces, may also have a tendency to produce more sebum on their scalps, requiring extra attention. While it is not necessary to increase the frequency of shampooing, it is important to adopt a washing technique that focuses on cleansing the scalp rather than just the hair strands.

  • Reason 2 Oxidized Sebum and Odor

Clogged scalp pores can lead to the accumulation of sebum, which, when exposed to air, can undergo oxidation. This process can result in an unpleasant smell emanating from the scalp. The trapped sebum, combined with sweat and bacteria, creates an environment conducive to the growth of odor-causing microorganisms. As a result, individuals may experience scalp odor, which can be bothersome and affect their overall confidence.
