Shampoo causing forehead clogged pores?

I'm thinking of getting a new shampoo. I currently use an Herbal Essences shampoo.

Would a dandruff shampoo (that has zinc as it's main ingredient) help with these little clogged pores on my hairline? Would my forehead oil be reduced? Can light dandruff cause these clogged pores?

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.

Good luck!
