How to grow healthier hair and have a healthier scalp!

Ingredients you should avoid in your haircare regimen
“Nae Nae, What are the Seriously Dangerous Ingredients to Avoid?”
ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL: You’ve probably seen this ingredient before and just figured it was ok because it is in so many things but here’s the truth. Naturally, kinky or curly hair reacts very badly to this. It will dry your hair out and break it off! By the way, did you know that this stuff is found in your car’s antifreeze? Why would you want to put THAT in your hair or on your skin?
MINERAL OIL & PETROLATUM: This commonly used petroleum ingredient coats the skin and hair just like plastic wrap. The skin can’t even release toxins and wastes properly through this “plastic wrap,” which can cause acne and other disorders. Plus, it keeps oxygen out so that your skin can’t breathe. Yes, Grandma might have used it but it was bad for her, too!
SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE (SLS) & SODIUM LAURETH SULFATE (SLES): This is used in testing labs as the standard ingredient to irritate the skin. It makes no sense to have a known and proven irritant in your beauty products. It totally defeats the purpose doesn't it?
PEG: PEG’s strip away your Natural Moisture Factor leaving your immune system vulnerable. They can also potentially cause cancer.
FRAGRANCE: When you see this, RUN!!! Many of the compounds in fragrance are cancer-causing or otherwise toxic. “Fragrance on a label can indicate the presence of up to 4,000 separate ingredients. Most or all of them are synthetic.”
What we put on our scalp enters our BLOODSTREAM!
Our skin absorbs 60% of what we put on it!
PROPYLENE GLYCOL (PG): This is the active component in antifreeze. It literally breaks down protein and cellular structure. Yeah, that stuff that your skin is made out of. The Material Safety Data Sheets warn against skin contact, as PG has systemic consequences such as brain, liver, and kidney abnormalities.
DEA (diethanolamine) MEA (monoethanolamine) TEA (triethanolamine): Dr. Samuel Epstein, Professor of Environmental Health at the University of Illinois said “repeated skin applications of DEA-based detergents resulted in a major increase in the incidence of two cancers - liver and kidney cancers.” John Bailey, who oversees the cosmetic division for the FDA said the the new study is especially important since “the risk equation changes significantly for children.
FD & C Color PIGMENTS: Absorption of certain colors can cause depletion of oxygen in the body and even death according to A Consumer’s Dictionary of Cosmetic Ingredients. Debra Lynn Dadd says in Home Safe Home: “Colors that can be used in foods, drugs, and cosmetics are made from coal tar. There is a great deal of controversy about their use because animal studies have shown almost all of them to be carcinogenic.”
IMIDAZOLIDINYL UREA and DMDM HYDANTOIN: These are just two of the many preservatives that release formaldehyde. According to the Mayo Clinic, formaldehyde can irritate the respiratory system, cause skin reactions and trigger heart palpitations. Serious side effects include weakening of the immune system and cancer. No Thankyou!
CHLORINE and FLOURIDE: Exposure to chlorine in tap water, showers, pool, laundry products, cleaning agents, food processing, sewage systems, and many others, can affect health by contributing to asthma, hay fever, anemia, bronchitis, circulatory collapse, confusion, delirium diabetes, dizziness, irritation of the eye, mouth, nose throat, lung, skin, and stomach, heart disease, high blood pressure and nausea. It is also a possible cause of cancer.
How do I avoid ALL the bad stuff ?
I check ALL labels!
Always, always. . . Read the ingredients on the label of any product that you are interested in purchasing.
Many products boast that they are “all-natural” but their labels tell a different tale. The best way to protect yourself is to check every label!
Check our label, we dare you!
