So I have this problem with my scalp and what happens is whenever a part of my head gets itchy, if I itch it, it gets oily in that one spot. Now I wash my hair every other day and I've tried every shampoo under the sun. The only one I use that seems to help is Aussie Cleanse and Mend. I don't use any products in my hair whatever and the only thing I do to it is straighten it. Can someone help?

  • Could be sebborheic dermatitis? It's worth going to see a good dermatologist and getting a solid diagnosis.
