Bad Chemicals For Your Hair & Hair Color

Hair Color & Styling – Know The Dangerous Products

In recent years, many people are choosing natural products for hair and skin care. The main reason for that is the fact that most of the mainstream products are full of chemicals and harmful toxins that may have a negative impact on hair health or even for your skin. Many researches and studies have shown that nutrition is very important for maintaining your hair health.  But it wouldn’t help if you continue to use bad chemicals for your hair color or hairstyle. So at some point you have to stop and check what chemicals are used in your hair color products and by your beauty salon people.  Worse still, how often these chemicals are used on your hair and scalp.

Taking care of your scalp and hair is very important and should be done carefully and cautiously because wrong products may cause more damage than benefits. For most people you may actually find that their hair are much more healthy and they would actually be fine using natural-based products – ie. organic shampoos, etc.  That way, you may avoid unnecessary hair health issues such as dry hair, scalp problems, certain diseases, and even hair loss.

Which Hair Products Are Considered Dangerous?

Almost every hair care product can be dangerous if contains certain ingredients. Even normal hair products like hair color products can be bad for your hair health as long as they are used more often or applied excessively.  But first before purchasing any hair care product, it is very important to check the label. What ingredients to avoid:

  • Phthalates – when reading the ingredient list on the gel or hair color products, and you see the term “fragrance”, it would be the best to just avoid that gel or hair color product. While phthalates will make the scent of the product desirable, it really does not mean the product is safe for your hair.  A study that was conducted by the University of Michigan showed that exposure to the high level of phthalates leads to decreased testosterone.  This in turn is bad for your hair!
  • Alcohol – when it comes to hair, try not to use this ingredient excessiely, because using products that contain alcohol on a daily basis will make the hair dry. Dryness leads to other issues, such as broken hair, and eventually even hair loss. Alcohol is mainly used in hair styling and hair color products, yet there are many products that are alcohol-free. It is certainly a much better option.
  • DEA – You usually get this ingredient in skin and hair products. It sometimes called Cocamide DEA and it comes from coconut oil, but during processing some harmfull chemicals are used and it ends up being harmfull. Research has pointed out that DEA is one of the hormone-disrupting chemicals. In fact, It may form the agents that are causing cancer.
  • Sulfates – SLES, sodium laureth sulfate, and SLS, sodium lauryl sulfate produces suds in shampoos. Suds is what you feel foaming in your mouth when brushing teeth, it also foams luxuriously when you wash your hair with shampoo. However, Suds can actually strip your hair of it’s natural oils and this will mean dry hair and hair shedding.

Other harmful ingredients are lead acetate, iodopropynyl butylcarbamate, lanolin, MEA, TEA, Color Pigments, Imidazolidinyl urea, and so on. The list of harmful ingredients is very long, and all these chemicals can be found in a wide range of products, including shampoos, conditioners, hair color dyes, and different hair styling products.

Heat Styling Tools Can Also be Bad For Hair

While products are dangerous because they contain chemicals, heat is also the enemy. Excessive heat on the hair leads to dryness. While using flat or curling irons, and blow dryer can change your hair style in seconds, using such items often will lead to dry hair. When the hair is dry, it is prone to breaking.. Hair loss is another issues that may occur, because damaged hair will become thinner over some period of time.

What products to use for natural hair?

Studies have been conducted about hair care and hair color products showing that every hair styling or hair color product that contains harmful chemical and toxins is really not the right choice. The best possible solution is to choose completely natural, organic hair styling and hair color products, since they are chemical and toxin free. Chemicals will not only harm your scalp and hair, they can also have a huge impact on your personal health. If you do not choose organic products, make sure to read the label and check what ingredients product contains and then reduce the use of harmful hair care and hair color products. That way, you will keep your scalp and hair healthy, and you will also avoid many medical conditions that may occur when using dangerous products.

What products to use if you have hair extensions?

High quality hair extensions are usually made from “virgin human remy hair” that may be “100 % Brazilian”, or it may be “Peruvian, Malaysian or European hair”. The point is, it is human hair, which is why you need to treat the extensions the same way you treat your natural hair. This rule also applies for weave lace front wigs, since these are also made from human hair. If you want to make your extensions to last longer, carefully choose the products. That means reduce the use of harmful products or the products should be chemical and toxin free, and the best option are organic products. Also, styling and hair color on extensions is allowed, but it is very important to carefully check the use of heat styling tools.
