With all of the buzz today about organic, natural, and sulfate free hair products we have to wonder…is it really worth it? Are we helping or hurting our hair?
You should take as much care with the products you are putting in your hair as with the food you are putting in your mouth. You don’t want ingredients you can’t pronounce, harsh chemicals, or irritating dyes and fragrances. They may not cause any immediate reactions (many hair care products do contain some or most of these items) but using them regularly can cause severe damage to you hair over the years.
Some specific ingredients to watch out for are:
- Sodium lauryl sulfates
- Ammonium lauryl sulfate
- Derivatives of lauryl alcohol
- Mureth sulfate
- Propylene glycol (antifreeze)
- Olefin sulfonate (deodorized kerosene)
Avoid these ingredients and treat your hair with respect. Your hair will thank you.
