Where does greasy hair originate from? Regardless of how or why it happens, greasy hair is directly related to the overproduction of sebum, a waxy type of substance naturally occurring in the body which is designed to keep hair supple, soft, and waterproof. Sebum is produced by the sebaceous glands. The amount of greasiness that is experienced is directly tied to the amount of oil present on the scalp. People with fine hair tend to have more hair than people with other hair textures. Since there is a higher volume of hair associated with fine textures, there are more sebaceous glands and thus the potential for excessive oil production.
Hormonal changes is also sometimes linked to the development of greasy hair and skin issues. This is more likely during puberty than menopause.
