Pimples on scalp or scalp acne as they are commonly called, are less common than the acnes that appear on the face but develop the same way. The scalp produces a protective layer of oil called the sebum. This oil finds its way to the surface of the scalp through the pores in the skin. When the pores are blocked by dead skin cells, dirt or other substances, the sebum gets clogged. Bacteria houses in the clogged sebum and multiply in numbers. When bactieria multiply, they become bigger causing pimples on scalp to appear. So basically pimples on scalp are formed due to clogging of pores as a result of blockage. It is very diffcult to acertain the exact cause of blocakges to occur. For some, it can be hormones and for others it can also be due to excess oil production in the scalp. Apart from these factors, hair shampoos, hair conditioners, styling agents and certain hair care products can contain ingredients that can cause pimples on scalp.
Scalp Pimples Remedy
What you do not want to do is to use a typical treatment for acne as these acne treatments or remedies will often do much more damage than good in teh fact that they dry out the hair and scalp and can cause long term term damage. Another main reason is that they do reach the bacteria that is deep down inside the hair follicle. The best way to get to this bacteria and eliminate it is with an ingredient called zincpca-c. Zincplex uses this along with irrigating and super deep cleansing herbs. We are able to get deep down to the hair root where this bacteria wants to hide. Zincplex hair products are also able to remove obstacles that block or clog up the hair follicle opening – this scalp build up is what the bacteria likes to hide behind. We strongly suggest that check out the Scalp Acne Kit that includes the Scalp Acne Shampoo, Conditioner and Scalp Lotion!
