Post Those who have used Head and Shoulders-

A couple people have said that while using this product they cleared their back acne...? Im quite sure there are different types of H&S, which type did you use and how long did it take to see results? How bad was your body acne?

Thanks for the info.

I used to use it on my face, use the plain ole regular one, the zinc within the shampoo will help. I stopped using it as a facial cleanser because it made my skin too dry, but as a body cleanser, it should work!

I use it to wash my hair. I don't really have dandruff but my head gets really itching and it helps. A few weeks later, I noticed that all of my back and chest acne had cleared up (which was amazing, since I've had acne for years!). I've used the regular and the "Refresh" and both seem to work well. I also use the conditioner.

why didn't i ever think about this? ive wondered why my body acne was getting bad, and its because ive tested the shampoo that i use and it clogs my pores which leads to breakouts.. im going right now to get some head and shoulders. This body acne will be gone =P

I've started using H&S for my body acne a week ago. My chest is almost cleared up. I think that's a great thing. And I'm really patient waiting for more results. Two thumbs up!!!!

Another one to use is Herbal Essences Anti Dandruff Shampoo... the active ingredient is Salicylic Acid. I don't know how good it is on bacne, but I use it cuz I get acne around the scalp if I use anything else. It's more gentle on your hair than H&S and the rest!

My acne on my shoulders/back/chest is moderate, how bad was yours before using H&S? Thanks.

Thumbs up

I've been using Head and Shoulders on my chest and back for over a month now and have definitely seen a great improvement!! My chest and back weren't absolutely horrible, but they were always full of bumps. I just use the regular Head and Shoulders (using a cheapy generic right now and it doesn't seem to be working AS well, but ok still). I also soak in an Epsom salt bath a few times a week. I started doing that at the same time I started the H&S, and I think the combination of the 2 was what really helped to clear me up.
I thought about using it on my face, but just thought it would be too harsh!
If it's worth having, it's worth fighting for.
