If you’re a redhead suffering from acne or blemishes around the hairline, it might be because of your hair products. Here are some redhead-approved tips for combatting hairline acne.
If you look at this helpful acne face map, you will see hairline acne is usually caused by hair oils or styling products.
Know which products to avoid:
There are a number of products causing hairline acne, or just making it harder to clear up. Avoid using these products until you get the issue under control, or remove them from your routine if they seem to be the root of the problem.
1. Stop using biotin-infused hair products
Excess biotin can cause your skin to break out. While biotin is good for hair growth, it may be causing you to get hairline acne.
2. Oil-based products
Oils are great for getting healthy, shiny hair, but they may be clogging your pores and causing hairline acne. Try to focus any hair oils or oil-based products on your ends and avoid your roots and scalp.
3. Dry shampoo/powdered root products
These products are great for giving your roots a boost, but they could cause build-up and clogged pores.
4. Fragranced hair products
3 Tips for Combatting Hairline Acne:
