PHYTO has over 20 ranges of hair care products, each one carefully catered to a specific scalp and hair concern. Specially formulated for oily, itch-prone scalps is the Phytopanama Balancing Treatment Shampoo (from $17.50, U.P. $27.90), infused with Sichuan pepper to sooth and rebalance, as well as Panama wood and Quillaja bark extracts which serve as sebum-controlling astringents.
Your tresses will also be purified with fragrant juniper extract, giving them a lighter, bouncier texture without stripping off natural shine.
Get a single bottle at $18 (U.P. $27.90) or a double-pack at $35 (U.P. $55) from PHYTO’s official Shopee Mall store.

The hinoki tree, a type of cypress that mainly grows in Japan and parts of Korea, has amazing antibacterial properties - and this has been harnessed for Korean brand GRAFEN’s Hinoki Shampoo ($20.90, U.P. $30.90). Made using hinoki water and essential oils harvested from Jeju Island, this purifying shampoo helps regulate sebum while calming itchiness and irritation.
Bonus: This comes with a soothing, forestry fragrance that will make you feel like you’re in your very own home spa - a real treat that’ll help dissipate stress after a long day!

Each of Klorane’s shampoos come with one natural star ingredient to help tackle different hair and scalp issues, and white nettle is the one of choice for oil control. Their Nettle Shampoo ($18.90) is made using European nettle roots, sun-dried for a higher concentration to effectively absorb oil and give your hair an airier feel as opposed to being weighed down by greasiness.

#4: PHS HAIRSCIENCE - ADV Purify Shampoo ($43.20, U.P. $48)

It is especially important to ensure that your scalp gets extra TLC when you’re plagued by oiliness and dandruff, because the dead skin flakes that you’ve shed will end up sticking to your scalp and block your follicles, preventing hair regrowth. This is a recipe for some serious hair loss! Luckily PHS HAIRSCIENCE’s ADV Purify Shampoo ($43.20, U.P. $48) tackles both issues at the same time.
If you’d like to take it up a notch, PHS HAIRSCIENCE recommends the double-cleansing method - first with their Nutrition Shampoo to wash away grime, followed by ADV Purify to clear away dandruff and excess sebum.
Get them from PHS HAIRSCIENCE’s official Shopee Mall store.
#5: OUAI - Detox Shampoo ($48)

You might have heard of how doing a DIY apple cider vinegar rinse can help in ridding you of nasty grease and buildup that’s clogging your hair follicles, but let’s face it - not everyone can deal with its strong, sourish scent. You can, however, still reap the benefits of this apple cider with OUAI’s highly-concentrated Detox Shampoo ($48). Other than cleansing thoroughly, this also serves to strengthen brittle locks with keratin.
Get it from Sephora.
#6: Ryo - Hair Loss Care Shampoo for Oily Scalp ($15.90, U.P. $19.90)

There are a couple of shampoos in their hair loss range but we’re zooming in on the Hair Loss Care Shampoo for Oily Scalp ($15.90, U.P. $19.90). With the power of whole ginseng - from the root to the stem, leaf, and fruit - combined with ginseng extract, this helps revitalise and nourish the scalp, while aiding in sebum control.
It even comes bundled with a free scalp massager, which helps stimulate blood circulation in the scalp, in turn also adding on to the improvement of hair growth.
