T Nation

Greasy Hair / Face


#1

This is a weird question, I know.

I've been diagnosed with low T (about 300) and yet I have a very greasy face and hair...I have to shampoo every morning even if I washed it the night before in a shower after working out. I have to use a salyclyic acid degreaser every day after work.

So how can this be if I have low T? Is this due to DHT? OR high estrogen or something?

I'm also hairy as all hell, unfortunately. Hope it doesn't get worse on TRT.

Some people just have overactive sebaceous glands. I’m one of 'em. My face and hair get quite oily. Shaving my head solves the latter problem, and washing my face morning and night helps with the former. :slight_smile:
