The scalp is the anatomical area bordered by the human face at the front, and by the neck at the sides and back. A healthy scalp means healthy hair, and that is a barometer to your overall health. If your hair is limp, dry, not grow has-padding-bottom has-padding-bottoming or falling out there is something going on with your health. Basically, there are four types of scalp – normal, oily, dry, and mixed or combination.
Of course, your hair does get oilier in the summer and drier in the winter. But otherwise, it’s somewhere in the middle. Your hair is pretty easy to manage and don’t get too greasy or dry, even if you haven’t washed your hair in two days. Skipping a wash or two doesn’t affect the condition of your hair either.

A dry scalp occurs when the scalp does not have enough oil for the skin to feel lubricated. It also tends to flake. They’re dry from root to tip. Brittle hair, excessive split ends and itchiness are all problems with dry hair.

An oily scalp is caused by over-reactive sebaceous glands on the scalp. In the worst cases, the sebum glands clog the hair roots and may cause excessive hair loss and dandruff. Your hair strands stick together and your roots get limp pretty quickly.
Shop for Oily Scalp
Combination hair means having different conditions on different parts of the hair. This can commonly occur with long hair when your scalp is oily and gets flaky but your ends are dry. Your roots get greasy and limp easily, while the ends of your hair remain dry and rough.
