Choosing hair products

Hi there,

I've got two questions for you. 

1. Are you usually checking a list of ingredients on hair care products to find out whether a product contains an ingredient you wish to avoid? 
2. Do you know what shampoo ingredients you want to avoid?

Since I am a big fan of cosmetics, I had an idea to share with you guys the main criteria for choosing hair products. Ok, I accept that chemicals are a part of our life nowadays and we can't avoid everything. But I think why not to read the fine print on the bottle (some of the ingredients can do more harm than good) and pick out the right shampoo or conditioner?

  • PARABENES 
Parabens are the most widely used preservative in cosmetics- they are used to prevent the growth of microorganisms. They've been found in low concentrations in tumours (yes, this sounds terrifying, I know). 
These preservatives can also irritate your skin + they can affect you hormonal balance too. 

Check out: Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben

  • SILICONES
Silicones work by covering your hair with a thin waterproof coating- they lock out humidity and leave your hair feeling smooth. But at the same time, it means that products which contain silicones will prevent other moisturising ingredients from penetrating into your hair (#thismakessense).
They can also lead to hair loss and dry or itchy scalp. 

Check out: Endings: -cone, -thicone, -thiconol, -siloxan, -silane

  • SULFATES 
Sulfates are used as surfactants in shampoos, which means that they should degrade the surface tension for liquids. And yes, this is exactly why you can spread around your shampoo so easily. 
They have a potential to be an irritant and they can also dry your hair out, because they can take essential oils from your hair. 

Check out: Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate,  Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) (p.s.: you can easily identify them since you'll see ,,sulfate" on the ingredients label:))

Side note, I asked my 10 classmates and only 1 of them is checking the ingredients on the products. 

What about you? And I'm also curious which hair products do you recommend, so please
let me know:)

Have a beautiful day!

Bea
