Mens Hair Waxes, Pomades, Gels That Don't Clog Pores/ Are Non-Comedogenic?

5 posts in this topic

Hello all,

I have been suffering from light acne for a while now and have a good regimen that has been helping keep things under control. However, it recently occurred to me that my hair product might be contributing to my breakouts. I use either waxes or pomades and, while many of them are top of the line grooming products, they do contain beeswax and oil-based ingredients. I am afraid that these ingredients might be transferring to my pillow and onto my skin.

Does anyone know about a mens hair product that won't clog pores / is non-comedogenic / skin friendly?

Thanks in advance!

Hm, if you use hair gel or spray then look into this brand called "Free and Clear"

It's supposed to be really gentle for sensitive skin which I assume would be great for acne prone skin too

wouldnt it be easier to just wash your hair before you go to bed?

XXYY, in order for that to work I would have to shampoo each night before bed. However, it's not recommended to shampoo daily as it strips away your hair's natural oil/texture/shine and dries out the hair. My thought was more along the lines of using a hair product that's skin friendly day and night.

They have some at organic markets such as trader joe's and whole foods and mom's organic.

I make my own hair gel with flaxseeds...

When you boil flaxseeds in water, you get this gooey type consistency.

Works great! And natural.

and cheap. lol
