During pregnancy, the scalp may have increased sebum production and the hair may become greasier.

If the pregnant woman already had greasy hair before pregnancy, she will usually have to increase the frequency with which she washes her hair and, therefore, she should use a gentle and frequent use shampoo adapted to her hair type, but which does not contain many chemicals, as they may not be safe during pregnancy and, if in doubt, consult a specialist.
