    Can getting a scalp analysis help determine..

    Can getting a scalp analysis help determine if sebum is an issue and is clogging scalp pores thus cause minaturization?

    I know one of the reason people with excessive oil/sweat can bald is from sebum clogging the follicle pores.. so maybe a scalp analysis could determine oif this indeed is the case?

    The reason i ask is i have excessive oil, so Nizoral should be a must.. however when i use Niz, i get that itchy/tingly feeling the next few days so i stopped.

    If sebum really is an issue for me, and a scalp analysis proved that, i would use Niz and put up with the tingly/itchy feeling, but i'd like to know for sure.

    It is very difficult that oxidiced sebum accumulate at sides of the head. because exist the pillow where lie the "protected" hairs.
    How it sound to you?

    this is incorrect, its a myth perpertuated by companies selling products to clean out these pores and restore hair growth (is wat they want u to belive)

    yes pores do get clogged, and yes certain products can unclog them but this has no bearing on mpb. a hair will just grow thru the sebum. probably alot of everyones heads have clogged pores on the scalp, but its normal.

    however probably wat can block hair growth is fribrosis occurring after the hair has miniturized.
