Thanks for posting your query.

I can understand your concern.

Greasy hair fall occurs due to a hot and humid environment, the sweat accumulates and causes the hair to be greasy.

Also it indicates the presence of dandruff.

I would recommend application of two shampoos alternately, each just twice a week.

One would be ciclopirox oleamine shampoo, the other one being fluocinolone acetonide shampoo.

Using these shampoos would be useful in resolving your concern of greasy hair.

Please let me know if you have any queries.

Take care

Patient replied :

Doc I have actually shifted from hot and humid to now dry and cold. Shillong is humid only during monsoons. Weather is cold and dry from Sep to mar.Then why it has become greasy. Advice.


Thanks for your reply.

It could be due to dandruff and at times due to hormonal imbalance.

I would recommend that you follow my advice about the shampoos.

Take care
