All the sudden I've started to get acne on the very beginning of my scalp! I haven't switched any haircare products, but I've switched mjy face wash. Could this be affecting it because the acne is very close to my face. Thanks.

Acne can pop up anywhere... (anywhere there are pores anyway!)It could be caused by aggravation from a new cleanser or it could be from extra oil built up on your scalp. I would try using a clarifying shampoo once every week or two to help remove build up that regular shampoo sometimes doesn't break down. Sometimes if you have extra oil in your scalp or if you use a lot of products (such as gel or hairspray) it can clog pores, leading to breakouts - (Also if you have bangs) just as heavy makeup or face products can leave you pimples on your face.
