Hi..I have oily and acne prone skin with oily hair. Clarifying shampoos from leading brands like Paul Mitchell contain comedogenic ingredients like panthenol and wheat germ oil amongst others. This results in breakouts on forehead and sometimes other portions like the back get affected too.Can you please recommend shampoos for oily hair that will not aggravate the acne.
Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Shampoo cleans oily hair well and contains tea tree oil to keep acne (should work for back acne too if it drips there). There is also a tea tree oil conditioner to go with it. Here’s a review of Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Shampoo where someone says it works well for their oily hair and prevent forehead acne. It still contains wheatgerm oil, but the tea tree component seems to overpower its pore-clogging action.
If nothing is working, then using a dandruff shampoo (even if you don’t see dandruff flakes in your hair) often helps. Head and Shoulders has many variants, Head & Shoulders Shampoo-Clean & Balanced being one of the milder ones.
My Assure Deep Cleansing Shampoo contains d-panthenol and glycerine.Will it aggravate acne?
Hi Jhumki, it should be fine as long as you bend your head forward and drain all the water off away from your beck, back and face.
