How Hair Can Aggravate Acne

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

If you’re reading this blog, chances are you already know that hair can aggravate acne.  What might not be so entirely clear is how.  The truth is, there are many ways in which hair exacerbates acne conditions.

Damaging Hair Products

It might seem unexpected, because you never spray hairspray in your face, but the hair products you use can contribute a great deal to acne problems.  There are two primary reasons for this.  Firstly, hair products actually do come in contact with the skin on your face, even when you’re not aware of it.  This can happen several ways: when you wash your hair and the product runs into your face, while applying (especially with sprays), when you touch your hair and then your face, and when hair lies on skin are all circumstances that get hair product on your face.  Also, when you sleep, product can get on your pillow, which then spreads everywhere.

Another reason that hair products irritate acne is because some of them increase production of sebum, a natural oil.  In moderate quantities, sebum is good, but when there is too much, it can spread on your face, causing an overabundance of oily skin, which leads to favorable conditions for acne.  That’s why it’s so important to pick your hair products carefully, especially if you have acne.  Not doing so can have serious consequences for your skin.

Knowing How to Prevent Acne is Half the Battle

Now that you know what role hair can play in acne, it’s easier to help prevent that unfortuante interaction.  We offer a whole range of anti-acne hair care products which are designed to not only help eliminate the issues caused by hair products but to actually help treat the acne itself.  To avoid the complications associated with using irritating hair styling products, try items like our Soft Control Clear Style Hair Gel.  Products like our Oil-Reducing Pore-Perfecting Treatment finish the job by tackling the acne itself.

How Do I Get Rid of Acne?

Friday, August 21st, 2009

How do I get rid of acne? This is a question we hear quite a bit — and it’s a great question. Getting rid of acne requires a lot of patience, effort and trial and error. You may be at the point where you feel like you’ve tried everything possible, and nothing is working. Facial cleansers, masks, topical ointments, diet — all of these things are surely worth trying, but there may be something you’re forgetting about.

Get Rid of Acne with Anti-Acne Hair Care

It may be possible to get rid of acne by using anti-acne hair care. Often overlooked as the source of the problem, hair care products can contain ingredients that actually aggravate acne. While your hair might look and feel fabulous, your skin could be suffering. These acne-aggravating ingredients are easily transferred from your hair to your skin when you touch your hair and then touch your face, or when your hair lies on your skin, for example.

Kairos Anti-Acne Hair Care system leaves your hair looking great — without causing any breakouts. You get salon-quality hair care benefits and do not have to worry about any harmful ingredients clogging your pores and giving you breakouts.

If you’re looking for a way to get rid of acne, it’s worth trying anti-acne hair care products. Kairos is proud to offer several products, like anti-acne shampoo and anti-acne conditioner. As for styling products, we have Soft Control Clear Style Hair Gel and Spiking Clear Style Hair Glue. These products won’t flake — they just provide long-lasting hold for a sleek style.

Use a Three-Pronged Attack With Kairos Anti-Acne Hair Care Trio

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

Our Anti-Acne Hair Care Trio is a discounted purchase of three products designed to work together to combat acne in a comprehensive, complementary way.  At Kairos, our products are already used to multitasking.  We’ve decided to take that approach one step further by bundling our Clarifying Complex-Clearing Shampoo, our Balancing Breakout-Controlling Conditioner, and our Oil-Reducing Pore-Perfecting Treatment.  Why fight acne one way when you can do it with three methods?

Anti-Acne Hair Care Trio: How It Works

Even without the added skin care benefit, these three products would work well together as the core of a hair care regimen; however, the Anti-Acne Hair Care Trio bundle is very effective  at eliminating, treating, and preventing acne breakouts.  Here’s how:

  • Clarifying Complex-Clearing Shampoo works to clear blemishes and prevent future ones while simultaneously cleansing and detoxifying hair.  The anti-acne shampoo also does a great job of eliminating any products left in the hair, which are notorious for enhancing oiliness in the skin that exacerbates acne.
  • Balancing Breakout-Controlling Conditioner does what any great conditioner should by softening, detangling, smoothing, and moisturizing your hair.  At the same time, however, it also reduces the appearance of blemishes and helps prevent future acne breakouts.
  • Oil-Reducing Pore-Perfecting Treatment is applied biweekly after the use of the Clarifying Complex-Clearing Shampoo.  This anti-acne hair care treatment works to dramatically reduce excess oils on the face and scalp, reducing that greasy look while lessening the frequency, intensity, and duration of future breakouts.

Taken together, these products provide an excellent three-pronged attack against acne while providing world-class care for your hair.

The Kairos Anti-Acne Hair Care Philosophy

We believe that anti-acne hair care doesn’t simply mean removing aggravating oils from our products.  It’s more than that.  Our products specifically attack acne, reducing the appearance of blemishes and altering the conditioning of your skin to ensure that blemishes don’t return.  Sure, we eliminate those oils from our products, but then we treat your acne problem and work to prevent it from coming back.  That’s the Kairos way.

Fight Breakouts with Anti-Acne Hair Gel

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

Meet your new secret weapon in fighting breakouts: anti-acne hair gel. Part of Kairos Clear’s anti-acne hair care system — the first-ever complete system of its kind — anti-acne hair gel fights frizz, provides a smooth, relaxed hold, and best of all, it’s formulated to treat and prevent breakouts.

A lot of hair gels out there contain ingredients that can cause acne breakouts by exacerbating overproduction by the sebaceous glands, and that can trigger a further imbalance by clogging pores. When this happens, it’s possible for acne to appear on the chest, back, neck and jaw line — not just on the face.

Even if you’re really careful to avoid putting any hair care products on your face or close to your hairline, the fact remains that what you put in your hair will most likely eventually end up on your face. For example, if you touch your hair and then touch your face, or if you hair lies on your skin. And at night, oils from hair care products can be transferred from your pillowcase to the skin on your face, chest, back and neck. All of these situations increase the risk of acne.

But Kairos Soft Control Clear Style Hair Gel is anti-acne hair gel that was designed to not only provide salon-quality hair care benefits, but to do so without causing acne breakouts. This is a high-quality blend of natural ingredients, and the gel won’t flake — just non-sticky definition for sleek styles or natural curls.

Using Anti-Acne Hair Gel

Using anti-acne hair gel is simple: Just apply it to wet hair, work it through to ends and style as you desire. Kairos suggests using anti-acne shampoo, treatment and conditioner as well.

Many acne sufferers have been told to just not use any hair care products or to use very little. But it doesn’t have to be that way, thanks to Kairos Clear’s anti-acne hair care system and Kairos anti-acne hair gel.
