Why is my scalp broken and sore?

Q. I hope you can help, over the past year my hair has become really fine and gets sticky. As my hair gets greasy quickly I have to wash it every day which I think is making it worse as my scalp is broken and sore and my hair is always sticky. Is there anything you can recommend as I’m afraid of losing my hair?

Kind regards

A. Hi Lauren,

If your scalp is broken and sore then you should go and see your doctor. Sticky and greasy hair can be caused my many things such as using the wrong shampoo and conditioner for your hair type or from using a product incorrectly. You should avoid washing your hair every day and you could also try using a dry shampoo that will clean your hair without making it too greasy.
