What happened to ma FACE?!?!

Alrighty...so I noticed that I've been starting to break out on my face.

I'm pretty sure it started shortly after I began JC...which sucks because I like her products!

I'm suspecting it could be the Awe-Inspiraling spray...or maybe even all of the styling products...When I apply the RR and the CCSS, I scrunch it in upside down so I'm sure it gets on my face a bit too.

Anyone else have this problem? What ingredient do you think could be causing it? =/ I miss my clear skin!

Aloeba broke me out on the back of my neck. Not sure what the culprit was though (ingredient-wise, that is). I managed to use it up by not using it every day and just didn't repurchase. Shame cos I liked it.
Could be the oils? Just a guess. I have to be careful about keeping hair product off my face or I break out. I normally wash my face last once I'm done styling in the morning to make sure I get anything the might have gone on my face esp. along the hairline. I also make sure I change my pillowcase often just in case any hair product residue gets on there. And wearing a wrap or satin bonnet on my head at night also keeps hair stuff from rubbing on my pillow case and ending up on my face.
If you're really liking the JC I would give these tips a try before ditching it.
3b/c fine, thick, porous, protein sensitive
Modified CG, CJ Rehab, JCWDT, KCKT, VO5 Chamomile Tea Therapy, CJDF, HEBE Gel/Mousse, Bioinfusion Rosemary Mint shampoo, occasional protein

Experimenting with BRHG

This happened to me occasionally. I rotate my products daily, so I was never able to figure out exactly which product was causing me grief. I was getting zits on the back of my neck around my hair line and lower ... they were disgusting and painful.
Magoo has some great pointers .... I'll share something very simple that has worked for me ...
After I apply my products, I tip over and comb everything through. I then plop. What I started doing is washing the back of my neck ... anywhere the product could be sitting ... after I have applied all my products and my hair is hanging down. I always apply mine in the shower, so I just grab my facecloth and use it.
Since I started doing that, I haven't had a problem. I think what was causing it for me was the products sitting on my neck as I applied them. I always apply them bent over and then standing up. When I stand up, a lot of the product was on my neck.
Type: 3a fine & dense,with normal porosity, terrible product junkie
ROUTINE: LI, enhancer, gel, plop with Curlease towel, serum product (either CIAB or Gel-les'c), clip & diffuse.
Too many favourite products to list ... I finally have my routine that works and alot of products to choose from. My product stash is huge, but well loved !!!
I'm breaking out all over my hairline. I've barely ever had a problem with zits before. I'm think that when I plop, some product oozes down my bangs and sits on my hairline. I have to try to wash it after I deplop.
Whatta bummer...well I'll try to wash my face again after applying product to see if that helps. Thanks a bunch! You all are always so helpful. =)

Yes, I have a similar problem with some Jessicurl products. The WDT is the biggest problem for me -- whenever I try to use it as a leave-in, I break out on my cheeks where my hair touches my skin. And today I used Too Shea, and my jawline itches more than it should (although I'm not seeing breakouts). Aloeba is the only one that give me no trouble on my face -- but it sometimes gives me break-outs on my back!

I think some of these suggestions are excellent, and I'll definitely try them. Thanks for asking this question, SoaringSiren.

Now that I'm home, I have all of my products here and have looked at ingredients to look for possible suspects. Got to find the culprit who caused this pizza-face!! SoaringSiren is on the case!

OK...I think I'm going a little too far with this Sherlock bit.

Aaanyways, another possible product that may be causing the problem is my Giovanni leave-in conditioner spray. Giovanni (at least it's original formula) is full of oils!! Since I'm spraying this stuff all over my hair, I'm sure some of it is getting on my face too! Boo!

I'm going to stop using this spray to see if my face starts clearing up. Water mixed with conditioner will do fine for now!
