Symptoms of an Oily Scalp

  • Suffer from itching
  • Have irritated skin areas
  • Scalp deformed due to the over proliferation of the microbes that cause dandruff
  • In severe cases, hair loss can even occur

How does an oily scalp develop

The sebaceous gland continuously forms new fat cells and is hormonally stimulated. When the sebaceous glands produce too much sebum, it can lead to an overproduction of sebum. Overproduction can lead to an oily scalp. There are various causes that influence these hormones and thus stimulate sebum production.

Treatments for an Oily Scalp

Fortunately, an oily scalp can be treated well with the right treatments. The duration of treatment is important for optimal results. While the primary effect on the scalp is noticeable immediately or after a short time in most cases, the positive effect on the hair only becomes visible and noticeable with the additional hair. Effectively, scalp treatments should always be performed over a period of several weeks – possibly also several months, both in the salon and at home. The more consistent the application, the clearer the successful result. The products below from La Biosthetique help, among other things, against an oily scalp.

La Biosthetique tegen een vette hoofdhuid

Neutralizes the aggressive components of the sweat secretion and stops its negative effects on scalp and hair growth. The hair-forming cells get more energy and thus improve the hair quality.


Counteracts an oily scalp and soothes the sebaceous and sweat glands. The scalp becomes clearer, fresher and irritations (eg itching) disappear. Creates optimal conditions for hair growth.
