We may not be aware that we are unknowingly putting harmful chemicals on
our hair thus resulting to general conditions such as migraine, nausea and skin
rashes. The symptoms may be quickly attributed to stress but if you look closer
to that hair product you’re using, you’ll be surprise to find the culprit.
Popularity does not
equate to safety, some popular brands sold in the market are loaded with mildly
toxic chemicals that may be harmful in prolonged use.
Novuhair, Nature’s answer to hair loss, gives you the lowdown on these chemicals
to help you with your choices.
Myth: Shampoo must produce lots of lather in order to properly clean your
Truth: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) is a compound that helps shampoo
and other cleaning product in producing foam and bubbles. Though it may
effectively remove hair build-up, it can also strip off essential oils that is
needed to keep your hair healthy.
Myth: Parabens has an anti-bacterial compound benefits that outweighs
Truth: Parabens are basically used to prolong the shelf life of hair and
cosmetic products mostly for its antibacterial purpose. Symptoms that are
related to over exposure to parabens are Atopic Dermatitis and Rosacea. Further
studies also show that use of products with parabens accelerates skin damage
and aging related to sun exposure.
Myth: My hair smells terrific! I love the perfume scent on my hair product.
Truth: A nice whiff of perfume might not be harmful but the fragrance
that is mixed in your hair product might have come from harmful substances from
highly toxic ingredients which can lead to Allergic reactions and mood swings.
That perfume is better off somewhere else.
Myth: Hair products that promise straightening and smoothening effect use
non-toxic Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate as a natural preservative.
Truth: Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate is a substance used in making your hair
soft and bouncy, although it is considered natural preservative, also releases formaldehyde
which can lead to skin and eye irritations. Prolonged use may also affect
your immune system.
Use of some of these
chemicals combined may also result to hair loss and other hair problems, thus,
it is important to be an informed consumer. A lot of new products have
saturated the market hence, read the labels for fine prints before buying.
