Brief Answer:
Sebaceous secretion is good

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

I am medical doctor, an associate in Department of Dermatology, working with an experienced Trichologist. I answer on his behalf.

The oil you get in the hairs is Sebaceous secretions, this is very good. This will avoid infections and keep you hair healthy. There is no need to worry, only problem is that the oil may attract dust.

Yes, you can take head bath daily, there is no harm in this too.

Hope, I answered your query.
