Question Acne and Dandruff shampoo

I keep hearing that dandruff shampoo clears up acne. Can the people who said that tell me if they used it in their hair or if they actually applied the shampoo to their acne prone skin?

i started using it just to wash my hair and it pretty much cleared my bacne. Now and then i just get a zit from my bra strap or something, but the area around my hair isn't all broken out anymore. i wash my hair with head & shoulders, use whatever conditioner i'm favoring at the time, and that does the trick.

Yeah I used it (and still am)... been about 5 weeks. Seen very good improvement. I'm starting to work in Neutrogena Acne Clear Body Wash because i havnt seen any additional results in about two weeks.

I washed with it in my hair, then applied the suds to my shoulders, back, neck, and chest... then rubbed on for a couple minutes then rinsed.

Best of luck!

Thanks to all that replied. Dandruff shampoo is way too harsh for my hair, but I will still buy it and use the suds for my back.
