  • it might be your diet. keep track of what you have eaten for a week and then take a look back at it. you may find your answer. certain food produce excess oils in our body that seep out thru our skin and hair.

  • Are you pregnant or nursing?
    It was so weird...AFTER I had my son and began nursing I would get this big oil spot ont he back of my head... I didn't change smapoos or anything. But I would wash my hair, blow dry it, and it would be greasy right then! Well Eventually I stopped nursing my son and a couple of weeks later the grease spot was gone and hasn't been back!
