Keep oily hair under control

Excessively oily hair can contribute to acne on the face, back, and shoulders.
The U.S. National Library of Medicine offers these suggestions for keeping oily hair under control:
Wash hair thoroughly each day.
Leave shampoo on for at least five minutes before rinsing.
Don't brush hair too frequently or vigorously, as it can spread oil through the rest of the hair.
Talk to your doctor about contributing factors to excess oil production, including stress and hormones found in birth control pills.
