Re: Shampoo causing forehead clogged pores?
Hi. I had exactly the same problem as you, and after reading in Proactiv's catalog that "acne and dandruff often go hand in hand" I decided to try a dandruff shampoo. Well, I've never had dandruff, but the oiliness, clogged pores, and occasional pimples on my hairline and scalp no longer exist. I had to experiment to get a nice shampoo, though. Some of them smell quite medicinal. Currently I am using Head and shoulders sensitive care. It smells nice and leaves my hair soft, which is alot more than I can say for a store brand dandruff shampoo. Also, a word of warning against neutrogena Triple Action shampoo with zinc- I also tried that and it had a nice smell, but it made my hairline/scalp oiliness and breakouts even worse.
