Head and Shoulders timeframe

Hey guys, I was wondering if you could shed some light on these questions. I have mild acne/ kinda sensitive combo skin. Yesterday I started using head and shoulders as a face wash (morning and night) so far I have washed with it 3 times (last night, this morning and tonight).

So far it isnt drying my skin too bad, but it seems like my pimples have risen to the surface and are red...is that a good sign..like purging or a sign to stop it now.

What are the signs that its not working and I should stop?

Also, how long does it take to start seeing results?

Head and Shoulders? The shampoo? For your face? I've never heard of this before.

I would think that this would be a really bad idea but...heck...I've put vinegar and laxatives (milk of magnesia) on my face so why stop there?

Have you noticed new zits? It sounds like the ones you have right now are a bit irritated.

I used H&S for my face for a few months. I dont think it helped much because my skin stayed the same after I stopped using it. One thing I did notice though, it made my skin VERY dry, to the point where it started peeling. On the other hand, it did seem to help (if only slightly) on my body acne. I still use it sometimes with a loofah as body wash.
