We all have hair products we can’t live without- from our shampoo to curl enhancers, or even anti-frizz serums. But some of your hair products might also be causing you to breakout! If you want to keep your gorgeous hair looking fabulous and have blemish-free skin you need to become an ingredient detective.
Before you start throwing out everything you own in your bathroom, you need to do some digging. Take a look at any gels, pomades, hair sprays, and avoid any products that add oil to your hair as they tend to be the most irritating. Ingredient labels don’t always underline the acne-causing ingredients, so although it says “oil-free,” or “non-comedogenic” it may still contain ingredients that cause blemishes. Stay away from common offenders like isopropyl myristate,silicones, petrolatum, PVP, CVP, copolymer ingredients, sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, and sodium chloride are commonly found ingredients in hair products that you should avoid.
Wash and condition your hair before washing your face and body to remove any residue the hair products leave on your skin. After rinsing your shampoo and conditioner, wash your face so it’s the last thing that touches your skin.
