Spots Wherever Hair Touches Forehead - Without Fail
Posted 14 November 2011 - 06:29 AM
Whenever even a few strands from my fringe touches my forehead for any length of time, I am sure to get a break out. I don't even have long hair! There's a red bump on my forehead now that lines up exactly with where hair falls, and some around the high temple for the same reason. I know this is definitely hair related as I had my hair longer until recently and the breakouts were much worse and lower down. The week after I got it cut, the breakouts cleared completely as no hair was touching my forehead.
I wash my hair every two days. Is this excessive? I naturally assumed it was having hair that wasn't clean causing this, but then began to wonder if it was actually the shampoo causing an irritation and localised swelling, resulting in the spot. I changed my shampoo to one that doesn't contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, but still has Sodium Laureth Sulfate and the breakouts continue. As spots can take time to appear, I'm still not sure if it's oil or shampoo causing it.
The speed at which contact causes a spot is also surprising, when my hair was long enough to need to be held back, if I had it down for literally just an hour or two during an entire week, I'd get the breakout again.
Any advice on how to proceed? Not wash my hair for a week? I guess what I'm really asking is, can shampoo do this? Or am I allergic to my own hair?
Thanks for any advice!
