What to do with an itchy scalp and oily hair? ‘Wash it’ would be the simplest answer. But why do we often hear people complaining that their hair feels greasy or their scalp feels itchy immediately after washing? The answer is what you choose to wash and care for your hair plays very important role in calming the irritation on your scalp and making your hair healthy and clean.
First thing first, why do we have itchy scalp and oily hair? An itchy scalp usually comes with excessive dryness, flakes, and sometimes inflammation. Because of this dryness, our hair roots would produce more sebum to protect our scalp. And as a result, excessive sebum production can cause oily hair. Because of this itchiness and unwanted greasy hair, we feel the need to wash our hair more often. But what we might have never paid attention to is the ingredients of our shampoo and conditioner. Sodium laureth sulfate(SLS) is one of the harsh chemicals that can cause itchy scalp. It is an agent in cleansing products to allow them foam. It doesn’t cleanse, just generates bubbles to make you feel ‘clean’. However, the price of this ‘clean feeling’ is this chemical residue left on our scalp. It irritates our skin and dries out our scalp, making it flaky. Another source of residue that would make our scalp itchy and our hair flat is silicones. They are used in hair care products to add a ‘silky feel’. However, silicones are not water soluble. They cannot be rinsed off easily and will leave greasy film on your hair and scalp. As a result, your scalp will be itchy due to the build-up and your hair will look dull and limp.
To correct the condition of itchy scalp and oily hair, it is very important to choose the right hair care products — ones without sulfates and silicones. Our BcBud Hemp & Omega 3 Botanical Shampoo and Conditioner contain no sulfates, silicones or any harsh chemicals. The shampoo has amazing cleansing abilities to remove oil build-ups and grimes. It also adds more volume to your hair, making it shiny and bouncy. The paired BcBud Hemp & Omega 3 Conditioner is also free of sulfates and silicones.

High content of cold pressed Hemp Seed Oil in both the shampoo and conditioner is also a natural remedy for soothing scalp eczema, reducing dandruff and calming other skin irritation that might cause itchy scalp.
