TODAY, clean hair products are everything. Clean, effective ingredients can and will improve the health of your hair and scalp. They 'll add more shine and volume, plus reduce hair fall and hair loss. On the flip side, many hair care products contain ingredients that are harmful to your hair and your health. These ingredients may be effective at a certain level but they will harm you, and your hair in the long run, causing dryness, damage, thinning, increased hair fall or hair loss and other undesirable effects. Here's what to look out for:
Natural, plant-based clean ingredients that are good for your hair may differ from product to product, depending on their benefits. For example, a conditioner will vary from shampoo in terms of its ingredients and effects on the hair. However, there are several substances that should be avoided at any cost, regardless of its intended use, so for better hair quality and healthy hair growth, make sure you’re using only clean, chemical-free hair care products that are vegan and gluten-free to see a remarkably positive difference in your hair.
What Can Clean Hair Products Do for You?
Many commonly used ingredients in shampoos and conditioners have been shown to be harmful for our hair and our health. Undoubtedly, clean hair products can help with severe hair problems such as irritated scalp or increased hair loss. Clean hair care products like natural shampoos, conditioners, and serums are free from harmful chemicals like sulfates, parabens and other nasties. Clean conditioners and shampoos are also the best for curly, dry or damaged hair types that needs more moisture. Clean products have been created to be effective, cleanse the hair and protect against damage without any harmful side effects.
Hair Care Ingredients that are Highly Avoidable:
There are many ingredients known to cause hair damage, dry or irritated scalp, and increased chance of hair loss. Here is a list of the common ingredients you should avoid in hair care products due to their potential negative impacts on your hair, scalp and skin:
- Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and Sodium laureth sulfate (SLES)
- Methylparaben, Ethylparaben and Propylparaben
- BHA and BHT
- Mineral Oils and Silicones
It’s essential to understand the products that you are using on your hair matter. If they include potentially harmful substances, you may experience side effects like irritation, itchy scalp, hair loss and in some cases they may even be known to cause certain cancers. It is so important to make informed, healthy decisions for your hair and skin and keep your beauty routine clean.
