    if your hair always touch your forehead, does it cause breakouts?

    hi,

    if a guy that has a hair style that has a long bangs and always touches your forehead, does it cause breakouts?

    why?

    thanks.

    Hi Primo1,

    I am female, but I still think I can answer your question. Early this year it became really popular for women to get hairstyles with long bangs. I went to my hairstylist and showed her the picture of the "new look" and asked if it would work with my facial features. She said I could definitely pull it off. So I had her cut some long bangs and layer the rest of my hair. It looked great!

    But within a week I started to get stubborn acne on my forehead and on my temples. I have never gotten acne in these areas! I always had acne on my cheeks. I thought that maybe it was because of the styling products I was using so I stopped using them. But I was still breaking out. So I tried an experiment. I wore my bangs tucked back behind headbands, scarves, etc. After two weeks, I noticed that I was not developing any new acne and the blemishes I had were healing. So I wore my bangs off my forehead while I waited for them to grow out. My theory is that the hair on the forehead could pose irritation for some people and it causes them it breakout on their foreheads.

    Shirts rub the shoulders and back and cause acne also, but only if you eat fried foods.

    My hair always touches my face and I've never had any problems resulting from that. I also wash/condition my hair every day so I ensure my hair's always clean.

    I think it depends on the person. My hair touches my face a lot and it never causes acne. I know that hairspray can cause acne though.

    The only part of my face that always gets pimples is my forehead, but I'm not sure if it's from my hair or not. I think it is, because I mostly have a side part and my hair touches my face, but if my hair causes acne on my forehead, then why not on the side of my face?

    the oil from your hair gives you acne (not saying your greasy) but everyone has natural oil in there hair and it can cause zits

    I have bangs and my forehead was the place with the LEAST amount of acne!
