A 19-year-old male asked:
Is it possible to cure excess sebum production and acne caused by dairy, my scalp literally fills itself up with too much oil if i consume milk?

Milk: Should not cause that problem. It is a wives tale. Sorry. Over washing your hair will cause your oil glands to try to replace the oil that had been constantly removed so be sure that you are not over washing or using a shampoo that is harsh and drying to your scalp.
