Oily hair is caused by the excessive oil secretion that consists of grease and other fatty things, which can rapidly spread all over the hair roots.

It is because of the high level of hormones that make sebaceous glands sensitive and secrete excessive oil. And the other is that people live with some bad habits such as staying up late, eating too much spicy and greasy food, using inadequate hair care products, living a fast-paced life and working at high intensity, and those things will affect the endocrine system of human body.
