  • Oily scalp / Pimples on scalp

    :roll: Erm... anyone has this problem of pimples on scalp? Sometimes i will get like 2-3 pimples on my scalp at one time Any solution to this? Anyone knows why it happens? :huh: Could it be hormones or not enough sleep? I wash my hair everyday, so can't be because of cleanliness. Its very painful when i comb my hair...

    I have them occassionally. I suspect the cause of it to be perspiration and heat. When the weather is warmer, do wash you hair daily and dry it in cool air.

      I ever had this during one phase in my life when I was pretty stressed and such. It would be stress and also cleanliness I think?

      I did not bother much with it and continued my daily routines with my hair.

        i do. and i noticed they only started popping up when i started using dove shampoo. moreover, i wash my hair twice a day - think i should be looking for a shampoo alternative now.

          Does your scalp itch? If so , it might be an allergy to the dove shampoo.

            nope, it doesnt itch. i change my shampoos after every 3 months. used dove prior to this and it didnt have this effect on me. i like dove for the "squeaky clean" feeling it gives my hair and the scent.

              Could it be that the shampoo is too rich? Your scalp might be an oily scalp to start with, coz pimples are more of a problem with oily scalps due to the high level of sebum.

                i got oily scalp, fine hair and all heavy shampoo and conditioners will cause me to have flaky deposits, then hair loss and then pimples

                hmmm stop using the shampoo might help
                else, use a shampoo for fine hair

                  I have a sensitive scalp and developed this problem a couple of years ago. The only solution for me that keeps the pimples under control is using a different shampoo daily (I have 7 at any time) :roll: including 1 shampoo for dandruff. My derm told me to just lather up the shampoo in my hands then wipe the lather over my hair & rinse off. Twice a week I work the lather of the dandruff shampoo thoroughly into my scalp for a good cleaning.

                  A friend uses Body Shop's Tea Tree oil shampoo for her scalp pimples.

                      help for oily scalp

                      dear cotters,

                      do any of you have any recommendations for oily scalp?

                      i do wash my hair daily but it gets kinda of greasy by the end of the day.

                        you may like to try wella SP (system professional) regulate shampoo. it's for oily scalp & for frequent use. i find that it does help control my oily scalp but still have to wash my hair everyday, the effects are not so great such that you can wash your hair every alternate day. you can get it at hair salons for $20+ but i suggest you go venus which sells a 250 ml bottle for $14.90. HTH!

                            I have been using Kiehl's Tea Tree Oil shampoo and its really good for oily hair IMO. Foams up and washes off very easily. It did leave my hair soft and easy to manage too.
