Hair problems such as hair loss or hair thinning, breakage, dandruff, or premature graying could be warning signs that signify an unhealthy scalp. As unsettling and embarrassing as these may be, they are also warning signs to start taking care of your scalp.

Know Your Scalp Type

The scalp, similar to skin can broadly be divided into three types – oily, dry and normal. In order to successfully maintain a scalp care regimen, you need to determine your scalp type.

Oily Scalp – Most people believe that an oily scalp is the most prone to flaking and dandruff. Quite the contrary – the excess oil that the sebaceous glands in the scalp produce tends to accumulate around the roots, clogging the pores. The hair is usually limp and flat, making it almost impossible for volumizing or styling products to hold.

Normal Scalp – A normal scalp type has the right balance of sebaceous glands and is generally not prone to problems like dandruff or excessive oil deposition.

Dry Scalp – A dry scalp causes constant itching and flaking, leaving the hair frizzy, dull and rough. Applying oil to your hair externally for nourishment aids the insufficient oil secreted by the sebaceous glands.
