Oily Hair and Scalp Health: The Role of pH Balance


Dealing with oily hair and scalp issues can be a frustrating journey. Beyond the plethora of solutions for oily hair on the market, understanding the role of pH balance is paramount for achieving a healthy scalp and managing excess oil production. In this comprehensive blog post, I'll delve into the intricacies of pH balance and its impact on oily hair and scalp health.

The Basics of pH Balance

What is pH?

pH, which stands for "potential of hydrogen," is a scale that measures the acidity or alkalinity of a substance. The scale ranges from 0 to 14, with 7 considered neutral. Values below 7 are acidic, and values above 7 are alkaline or basic.

The Scalp's Natural pH

The human scalp has a slightly acidic pH ranging from 4.5 to 5.5. This natural acidity is crucial for maintaining the integrity of the scalp's protective barrier, known as the acid mantle. The acid mantle acts as a defense mechanism, warding off harmful bacteria and fungi while keeping the scalp moisturized.

Impact of pH on Oily Hair

Using haircare products with a high pH, such as some traditional shampoos, can disrupt the scalp's natural pH balance. This disturbance can lead to an overproduction of oil as the scalp attempts to restore its acidic environment. Consequently, this overdrive in oil production contributes to the challenge of managing oily hair.
