Have you ever wondered if the shampoo you are using is harmful to your health? Many popular shampoos contain harsh chemicals that can actually strip your hair of its natural oils and lead to scalp dryness, along with containing toxins we don’t need.
Most people are unaware of the harmful effects of the chemicals in their shampoo. They buy shampoo based on what is does for the hair, not realizing what the chemicals in them can do to your health. Some shampoos add harmful chemicals into their formulas which may lead to serious diseases like cancer down the line. These chemicals can be absorbed through the scalp and into the bloodstream.
Here are some ingredients to watch out for. Sulfates, are a type of detergent that can strip away natural oils, leaving your hair dry and brittle. Parabens, are preservatives that have been linked to cancer and hormone disruption. I know many of us take recommendations from our hairdressers, using their shampoos from their salons or you are stuck with using the same shampoo because it works and you are afraid to try something different, BUT, I think it is important to see if there are harmful ingredients in what you are using now and at least try shampoos that are free from toxins.
Shampoos free from toxins are typically free of synthetic fragrances, colorants, and other harsh chemicals also. Thankfully, there are now a number of companies that offer cleaner versions. Read your labels and know your ingredients!
I had to try a couple of different products to find ones that my hair loved. Do some research to find the right shampoo for you. My hair is long as you can see and I don’t have any split ends, so I must be using something good! So try switching out your “go to” favorite shampoo and try one free of toxins. It can help you achieve healthy hair without exposing you to harmful toxins, which is a beautiful way to take care of yourself and your hair.
