You can wash your hair with lukewarm water to keep it clean every day but shampooing more than 4X week is not necessary. Why? It is proven that excessive use of shampoo straps the natural oil away from your scalp, which leads your scalp to produce more oil/sebum production, which will just escalate the problem.

Go for the ones with good ratings and genuine user reviews. We personally recommend Aveda Pramasana Scalp Cleanser.

Massage your scalp gently in a circular motion from your fingertips to get rid of those dead skin cells. We recommend Jack Black Face Buff Energizing Scrub with mint and Vitamin C.

So take a pause and check if you are overstressed lately for whatever reasons. You might not be able to escape from it entirely because this is life. However, there are ways to manage stress. We recommend going for a run, walk or even a quick workout during work breaks to keep your stress under control.
