Hair Conditioner & Acne

Q: I have very curly long hair. I was told by my dermatologist that I should not use a leave-in conditioner because it was causing a flare up of my acne. Do you have a recommendation of a leave-in conditioner that will not cause an acne flare up?
A: You might try looking for Neutrogena's Triple Moisture Silk-Touch Leave-in Cream at your local pharmacy. If not available locally, you can find it online. Neutrogena's products are known for their gentle formulations and non-comedogenic (non acne-causing) traits. It's available at prices starting as low as $5.99 (U.S. Dollars).
Another option is to look for the Kairos Acne Care Solutions line of hair care products. Kairos takes the concept of healthy hair and clear skin and combines the elements that make them both possible into one product line that helps keep both skin and hair healthy and clean. The company makes everything from shampoo and conditioner to an oil-balancing pore treatment, styling products and a heat protective conditioning spray. Prices for these products range from $24 (U.S. Dollars) to $28 (U.S. Dollars) for each product.
