CAIRO – 3 June 2017: Sweating plays an important role in protecting our bodies by cooling the body and preventing overheating. However when it comes to the head, sweating can become a problem, especially in the summer.

Head sweating gives the hair and the scalp an unwanted shine and might lead to a noticeable unpleasant smell. It produces an uncomfortable sticky touch and increases the likelihood of dandruff. Excessive head sweat can also weaken the roots of the hair and cause it to fall out.

The good news is that there are some ways to manage and reduce the problem. The following tips can contribute to reducing head sweat.

Use rose water
Rinse your hair once every 2-3 days with natural rose water to cool the scalp and overcome excessive oil. In addition, rose water leaves your hair healthy and contributes to the elimination of any odors from the scalp.

Avoid using heat
The use of heat on the hair leads to the accumulation of oils on the scalp. Therefore, avoid the use of blowers, flat irons and hair dryers. If you have to use hair tools, try to use them at night to reduce sweat on the scalp.

Use essential oils
Massage your scalp using essential oils to keep it healthy and strong. Essential oils give your hair good nourishment and help overcome other hair problems and prevent the accumulation of sweat on the scalp. In addition they give natural fragrance to hair. Essential cooling oils also help cool and care for the scalp, such as lemongrass oil, coconut oil or tree tea oil.

Use apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar acts as a natural disinfectant and antibacterial. The vinegar helps remove dead skin cells from the scalp, allowing it to freely breathe and prevent itching. Mix two parts apple cider vinegar with three parts water and apply this to the scalp.

Use peppermint oil
Peppermint oil doesn’t only help you get rid of sweat on the scalp, but leaves your hair soft and moist as well. In addition, peppermint oil is used to treat dry scalps and itchy hair. To use peppermint, take two tablespoons of the oil and add to shampoo or conditioner. Wash your hair thoroughly and then rinse with water.

In the past 5 years, some cosmetic experts have started to use Botox to overcome over-sweating in the hands, face and scalp. When Botox is injected into the scalp, it blocks the nerves that supply the sweat glands; as a result the hair will be less frizzy and won’t need to be washed as frequently.
