Are Your Hair Products Causing You To Break Out? Lets Talk About It

Oh no!!! Where did that pimple come from? Why am I breaking out? What’s going on here?! Okay ladies, let’s breathe and consider some things, it might just be food allergies or may be the wrong makeup, but what if it is your hair products?

Sometimes we don’t realize just how much the products that we use on our scalp and hair can actually affect our skin. As a matter of fact you can tell that an ingredient is great if it can be used on both your hair and skin interchangeably without any issues.

Breaking out, getting pimples, and seeing blemishes on your face did not just come from you forgetting to wash your face in the mornings or eating too much chocolate. Obtaining these unflattering marks can come from just the simple use of your hair products and the routines that go with them.

For instance have you ever massaged your edges and in the process of doing so, drift off into a day dream only to feel oil running down on your forehead and the side of your face because you have lost focus? Yep, this has happened to me way too often and the oil can wreak havoc on your skin.

What about when you go to the hair salon to get your hair hooked up in that fierce style you have been longing for and your beautician starts going crazy with the oil sheen spray and does not cover your face? Imagine all that residue, from the spray all over your sensitive pores left there until the next time you wash your face.

Now I am not saying all hair products are terrible and that they need to be thrown away. Most products we use on our hair are awesome and they work very well with our tresses and skin together, we just have to make sure we read the labels to find out what is in our products.


Natural and organic oils tend to be an awesome for your face like Argan oil is a great anti-aging treatment or Rosehip oil that can restore moisture to stressed skin.

On the other end of the scale synthetic oils like mineral oil found in many hair products can cause oily skin or clogged pores. Another example that you might come across is sodium laurel sulfate, which can not only strip your hair of everything but can strip your skin of the natural oils the skin needs for protection as well.

    Thank you! I’ve been breaking out like a 16 year old the past few months and I’m 51, now I know why! I only use the good oils (coconut, jojoba, olive, tea tree) and some are supposed to be somewhat good for problem skin but after reading this I do think this is the culprit as nothing else has changed. I’m 100% natural since Feb after a 2 year transition. Now I use more oils than I did when I was transitioning… thanks again for the heads up!
