Hi all

(I have searched an couldn't find anything to answer my query, so hopefully this isn't a duplicate)

I've started to worry that it's actually shampoo and/or conditioner that is causing these not-spots. Well, and spots too.

I do get some spots now, as my skin has gone from dry to oily in the last 2 years... but for 13 years I've had hive like lumps that get sore etc.

I was on the pill for about 8 years, various ones, didn't appear to help.

I'm on minocyline, and sometimes use zineryt. But really nothing but the sun seems to help.

Could there been something nasty in the shampoo/conditioner thats bugging my skin?

Problem areas are face, chest/back/shoulders, and spells of it in my hair too.

I just looked up some of the acne drugs online, and the medical photos made me feel lucky, so I guess mine is moderate... but has hounded me for years.

I've been putting off trying Roaccutane... but we're looking at starting a family next year, and I believe it's not allowed in those circumstances... so I'm wondering if I should give it a go before we start.

Apologies for the essay.

Many thanks Smile

Sorry Wink I should have said.

Over the years I have tried all sorts of things...

I have long hair and alot of it, so I need to look after the condition of it - and as yet haven't found anything that does this and claims to be natural at the same time.

I've used Head & Shoulders, I thought this might be kinder...

Aussie Shampoo & Conditioner - smells so great and makes the hair lovely...

Just Herbal Hair Care S&C - I think they have more chemicals in than their 'natural' speak lets on

Sensitive Skin Co S&C - Felt like I had used washing-up liquid really.

Herbal Essence - Ok

Timotei - Ok... but the smelly stuff can't be good right?

Sunsilk - for colour treated hair - I did leave my hair undyed for years, made no difference.

John Frieda - again a colour specific type

I'm currently on Vosene in the hope that again, it might be kinder.

I should stress, these have been tried over years, and I usually use buy the one type for at least 2 or 3 bottles, so I've not chopped and changed.

I would suggest you try a salon brand to see if it makes a difference. They are formulated differently than drugstore brands, for the most part. Though there are some good drugstore ones I've come across-- Garnier Fructis, Neutrogena... For salon brands, I'd suggest Redken or Biolage. you may also want to try apple cider vinegar rinses to get any gunk off that may have built up from using all those shampoos.

Brands like Herbal Essence and Aussie are not good-- over time they coat the hair with silicones and gunk, making it brittle and unmanagable.

Thanks Violetanne Smile

I tried Fructis year ago when it came out and didnt get on with it, it made my hair lank, and that was when it was naturally less oily.

I might give Neurogena a go - I had tried that more than 10 years ago, and seem to remember it being good. Just too expensive at the time.

I had a feeling Aussie had to be bad because it smells so good Sad

I used to use ACV with treatments from the aromatherapist... so yes you might have a good point there.

What are the good things about RedKen and Biolage? Do they have all these chemicals which people keep complaining about?
