Clogged Pores & Follicles On Scalp and How To Clean Them

May 25, 2021

If you are suffering from different scalp issues such as slow hair growth, dandruff symptoms like itching, flaking, raised red patches or intense itching that can lead to scalp sores and scabs then the culprit may be the sebum that you are emitting and your body’s reaction to it. If you do not cleanse sebum or if it does move freely through the follicle and to the end of the hair then many different chain reactions can occur.

Clogged Hair Follicle – Sebum and Hair Loss Or Thinning In Women and Men

For example the scalp oils that help to minimize dry hair contain different liquids and one of them is cholesterol which helps to feed the alpha reductase enzyme. This is important because that enzyme is what converts Testosterone (found in the scalp of women and men) to DHT. This DHT is known as the hair loss or thinning hormone. Therefore by cleansing away excess sebum inside of the hair follicle you are removing the food supply of the hormone that causes hair loss. Many people believe by just doing this you slow down hair loss by over 70%. That is a huge number for women and men.

Excess Sebum and Seborrheic Dermatitis and Dandruff

Most people never make the connection to oily scalp and dandruff or the symptoms or Dandruff and Seborrheic Dermatitis. In fact hyper-seborrhea or the excess production of the scalp oils is associated with not just the scalp problems listed above but also with thinning, seborrheic eczema, psoriasis and more. Why? Because the main culprit in all of these is scalp fungus, bacteria or mites and sometimes yeast ( yeast tends to be more associated with hair odors and smells and also missing spots of hair – patches of redness and open scalp sores etc ). The sebum also has sugar and cholesterol in its mixture. The mites, fungi and bacteria feed off of this. Therefore if you are not removing this from the hair follicles then you are feeding the above mentioned. For many this is not a problem but odds are if you are already having the symptoms mentioned above then you are having fungus and bacteria that is growing beyond the normal amount that is typically seen or measured on the head or in the pore. This leads to acne, pimples, sores, scabs, itching, flakes, bleeding, intense issues and much more including diffuse and specific hair thinning areas and even patches.

An Anti Fungal Shampoo will help but until you do something to control the excess sebum being produced and open the sebum plugs or clogged hair follicles then your battle will be daily.
