Question: I have oily skin on the T region and an extremely oily scalp. I have been using AF-K shampoo for the last 2 yrs and wash my hair 3 times a week. My hair gets oily and stinky every 2nd day though I travel by car. Hair remains dry on the day I wash and oil comes back with vengeance the next day. Day time I use SPF 45 Jovees sunscreen and at night Himalaya night cream. Am 30 yrs old, male and vegetarian. Please help.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
Oil is produced by sebaceous glands on the scalp.
Try sebowash shampoo daily and noskurff lotion daily in night.
This will help in oil control.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
