    Yeah!

    As far as the oily scalp goes, I use minoxidil so it seems like I am always dealing with that now. Even before I started using treatments my scalp was pretty oily though. I would say the best thing you can do is keep your scalp clean. Shower right before going out. Experiment with different shampoos.

    Honestly, an oily scalp is better than a flaky scalp at the extreme ends of the spectrum.

    You might want to try a new shampoo, I think regenpureDR works well for me in setting my hair/scalp to a "fresh" state whenever I use it.

    Also, what level of hairloss are you - as an on the fence buzz cut guy myself. Really want to do it, really scared about my hairline/forehead. Gah.

    When you buzzed the hair, the sebaceous gland still producing the same amount of sebum that the day before, and having less hair fiber which distribute the sebum, it gives the impression of being more oily scalp.
