I started no-poo this past July and it has been great. My dandruff problem is much much better (almost completely gone) and the itchiness problem I had is so much better too. But all of a sudden in early Nov. I started battling breakouts on my forehead. I don't know that it is related to no-poo or not but I haven't changed anything else that I use on my face. I did turn 30 (hormonal? I didn't think hormonal breakouts were targeted on the forehead though) My workouts at the gym have become for high impact, more sweating. I get a lot of the breakouts in my hairline and those hurt and then small ones sort of all over my forehead but there is always some between my eyes/eyebrows. It is driving me nuts. I also feel like my hair is oilier than it has been. I normally no-poo on day 1, nothing on day 2 and I used to do water only wash on day 3 which I haven't done lately (I feel to greasy) I am tempted to go to the store and buy some regular shampoo. But then I think about my old battle with dandruff and itching and all the junk in those shampoos (I tried natural shampoos before going no-poo and had no luck so not really interested in those anymore) So anyone have any ideas on what I should do. I have also noticed since going no-poo that my skin is oilier (used to be normal sometimes even a tad dry, now it is more combination/t-zone oily). I wash my face with either just water, honey or a brown sugar scrub (once a week or when I remember). The other day I tried an exfoliant using plain yogurt with honey so I wouldnt scrub the current breakouts and make anything worse. I moisturize with either coconut oil or olive oil. Any advice?
