Scalp Odor And Why Zincplex Eliminates It

April 16th, 2012

Scalp odor or Smelly scalp affects a lot more people than you think. Once you learn what causes your hair and head to smell you will see why Zincplex is so effective against the smells coming from your scalp and hair.

What Causes Scalp Odor?

99% of scalp odor or smelly scalp is caused by excess bacteria and fungus in the scalp. Typically bacteria is easily removed from the skin, however when it comes to the scalp it becomes a different story. Almost everyone has some buildup at the hair follicle opening but more importantly they build up inside of the hair follicle. This build can actually gather around the root of the hair. It can affect the growth of the hair, it can afect how easily your hair breaks and how easily it is damaged. In other words your hair does not grow efficiently when this build up is in place. What causes the scalp build up is nuermous. However, the main causes are sticky shampoo residue, chemicals, soaps, shampoos, conditioners, scalp lotions, hair sprays, hair gels and just about every other styling aid that we all use.

The problem with the build up comes when bacteria and fungus are able to hide away underneath the scalp build up – they can tuck down into the hair follicle and keep away from traditional shampoos, conditioners and scalp treatments to prevent these products from working. This is where specialty scalp products come in. A clariying shampoo is not enough to deep cleanse the hair root. Even if they could cleanse that deep they would still not do anything to eliminate the fungus and bacteria inside the hair follicle. Zincplex was designed to deep cleanse and purify. The ingredients are proven to be anti fungal as well as anti bacteria. And this amazing zinc pca is natural based. It is a super cleansing and purfying that no other set of scalp products offer – in our opinion!

We guarantee that you will smell the difference! And remember that Zincplex hair products are designed to be the long term solution with scalp rebalancing and deep cleansing!

Smelly Scalp and Odor – How Do You Get Rid Of It

What to Do About Smelly Scalp

You may think that only a dirty scalp or hair would smell, but that is not true and smelly scalp is one of many different prominent scalp problems.  Quite a few people actually suffer from a smelly scalp.   This is both frustrating and embarrassing for the sufferer.     

The smell is not caused by uncleanliness, but rather a buildup of bacteria.  If the scalp has an abundance of oil bacteria can build up around the hair follicle causing an odor to appear.  It is normal to have some bacteria on the scalp, but a healthy balanced scalp can fight the bacteria off and prevent a smelly scalp.  Once the bacteria has a firm hold and is attached to the hair follicle it is hard to get rid of.  When hair is washed the smell may subside temporarily, but will return in a few hours.    

Frequent hair shampooing with perfumed shampoos may mask the smell, but they do not get to the root of the problem.  It the shampoo contains harsh chemicals it might actually exasperate the condition.    There are ingredients that can remove smelly scalp for good.  The scalp needs to be cleaned and detoxified.  Herbs such as burdock, ivy and thyme will work to clean the scalp thoroughly.  Zinc is an ingredient that will also deep clean the hair follicle and it will regulate the amount of oil on the scalp as well.  When the scalp has the correct oil balance, it will be healthy and able to fight off bacteria and fungus keeping smelly scalp and scalp odor at bay.

Smelly Scalp

Smelly scalp is a concern for some people.  Most report that a few hours after washing their hair will begin to smell and this smelly scalp will persist.  Some people say this it is a muggy or sweaty smell that seems to come from the scalp.   The smell may go away with each washing only to return again in a few hours.  For obvious reasons this is a big problem for sufferers. 

So what causes the scalp to produce an odor?  It is caused by a fungus or bacteria that tends to grow on oily scalps.   Fungus and bacteria is always present on the scalp in small amounts.  A healthy scalp will usually fight off such predators, but if your scalp becomes unbalanced with an overabundance of oil the fungus can take hold.  The fungus thrives on the oil that is present on the scalp and basically can overwhelm your scalp.  Once smell scalp starts it can be extremely difficult to get rid of.  It is embarrassing, and many people think it comes from a lack of cleanliness.  But the truth is that no matter how hard you try to keep your scalp clean the smell will just not go away. 

What can you do about smelly scalp?  Most people will try perfumed shampoos, unfortunately these just work to mask the problem temporarily if at all.  And since shaving your head is probably not an option, what can you do?    You must first purify the scalp and then regain the proper balance of oil.  Zinc is an all natural ingredient that actually does both.  It cleans and purifies the scalp and also works to regulate the sebum gland.  The sebum gland produces the oil on the scalp.  When it is working correctly your scalp will be healthy enough to fend off bacteria that could accumulate causing embarrassing scalp odor to appear.
