Is All Over Hair & Body Shampoo safe for color- or chemically-treated hair?
Yes. If your hair is color-treated, permed, straightened, or relaxed we highly recommend following with Paula's Choice Smooth Finish Conditioner.
I have acne on my chest/back. Will the ingredients in All Over Hair & Body Shampoo clog pores or make acne worse?
In all likelihood, no. Although we refrain from making non-comedogenic claims for our products (because there are no standards in place to regulate that claim), All Over Hair & Body Shampoo does not contain heavy, thick, or oily conditioning agents and doesn't leave a film on skin. The water-soluble formula is gentle and rinses cleanly, prepping breakout-prone skin for subsequent anti-acne treatments.
May I use All Over Hair & Body Shampoo to wash my infant and/or child?
Yes, although as a general rule we always recommend asking your pediatrician before using any new product on an infant or child's skin. Paula's Choice All Over Hair & Body Shampoo is very gentle, and the fact that it is fragrance-free makes it a safer bet than most baby shampoos.
Does All Over Hair & Body Shampoo work better as a shampoo or body wash?
Both! We designed this product to be equally effective for shampooing hair and cleansing skin from the neck down.
Is it OK to use All Over Hair & Body Shampoo to wash my face?
Most likely, yes—especially if you have normal to oily skin. Generally speaking, our facial cleansers are the better options because we offer specific formulas to address the needs of various skin types. However, if you're pressed for time or want to multi-task as much as possible, give it a try and see how your skin responds!
May I use All Over Hair & Body Shampoo to wash my dog?
Yes. Always be sure to rinse thoroughly with warm water to remove all traces of shampoo from your dog's coat.
