So why does head grease happen?

It is perfectly natural for humans to sweat and excrete body oils, our hair naturally produces oil as does our skin.  Add to this hair products some of which are naturally greasy and you can see why its common to have head grease marks on your upholstery.  This builds up over time until suddenly one day the greasy stain catches your eye! A big ugly stain that you can no longer ignore..!

And what can be done to get rid of head grease?

No home remedies or domestically available products are likely to remove head grease from your upholstery, this needs specialist cleaning.  Call a professional upholstery cleaner that uses hot water extraction (HWE) as dry cleaning or shampoo cleaning are unlikely to be sufficient to treat this problem.
