Many people suffer from acne, but don’t know why. Well, for many people, the problem begins with their hair products. Over-the-counter conditioners, shampoos, and other hair products can cause severe acne and bump clusters. This is such a major problem that it has a name – acne cosmetica. This phrase references products applied to hair that can cause acne.

The reason these products cause acne is really quite simple. They oftentimes contain dangerous ingredients that can messy up your pores, and messed-up pores oftentimes lead to acne. These products can be such problems that simply weaning off of them can lead to a gradual clearing of your skin. (2)

Unfortunately, many emollients and oils in over-the-counter hair products are precisely some of the worst things for your skin. And if you’re wondering if your acne is hair product-related, you need to check out where on your face your problem is focused. Many times, acne due to hair products is focused on what’s considered the outer rim of your face, such as your hairline and forehead. (3)

Now that we know we need to watch out for some over-the-counter hair products, let’s look at some of the ingredients to specifically look out for. Some of the dangerous ingredients to be aware of in over-the-counter hair products are synthetic fragrances. These fragrances can easily lead to breakouts that can be difficult to get rid of. (5)

It’s also important to be mindful of sulfates, propylene glycol, and silicones, which can be irritating to your skin and cause pimples. To best ensure your hair products are not harming you, be sure to check ingredient labels and GO ALL-NATURAL, which can not only help your hair, but your skin too! (5)

Some people may also just be sensitive to certain ingredients in over-the-counter hair products. Surprisingly, some over-the-counter hair products contain ingredients like petroleum, which can obviously be very debilitating to sensitive - and just about anyone's - skin. Many products also cause pollutants and bacteria to become sealed into your skin. (6)

With this in mind, some over-the-counter hair products don’t leave after your shower. Some hair products, like gels, mousses, and hair sprays can linger on your hair for an extended period of time, causing you skin problems over the course of your day. And if you don’t wash at night, these products can cause your complexion some serious problems when they rub off on your pillowcase, then transfer to your skin.

It’s also important to be mindful of either conscious or unconscious styling throughout the day. Many times you can find yourself touching your hair, then either consciously or unconsciously touching your face, which can transfer everything from your hair. What's transferred are usually irritating and acne-causing ingredients. (7)

It’s also important to be mindful of tricks over-the-counter manufacturers try to play on you. They may try to use trick phrases that can be super deceiving. These phrases include natural and dermatologically-tested. Unfortunately, these phrases don’t always connect to how your skin can react to the hair products you use. (8)

It’s important to note that not everyone can control if their hair touches their skin. After all, some styles cause your hair to touch your skin pretty much all the time. For example, bangs and pony tails are constantly touching your skin, leaving you potentially exposed to the effects of ingredients in those products. Be extra wary if your hair products contain synthetic fragrances, which can be enticing but dangerous to your skin.

To best ensure hair and skin health, look for ALL-NATURAL. This means products that are SULFATE-FREE, FRAGRANCE-FREE, and SUPER GENTLE. It’s also important to take into account that everyone is different and can react to products differently, and that everyone’s lifestyles are different, potentially making them more capable of sweat and breakout-related problems. (10)

And if you think this isn’t a problem you need to worry about, think again. Everyone, from those suffering with constant breakouts, to those who just have a single pimple every now and then, can feel the effects of dangerous over-the-counter hair products, making it that much more important you GO ALL-NATURAL.
