Why Sulphates, Parabens and Silicones Are Not The Answers
Nowadays, many hair care products contain harmful chemicals which preserve the products to last longer, but they end up binding your hair with a plastic film which gives the implication of shiny hair. The truth is, they end up seriously damaging your hair and scalp by coating the roots and ends in substances harmful to your hair. In this blog, we’ll be discussing why sulphates, parabens and silicones are not the answers.
What’s the big ‘NO’ about Sulphates?
Sulphates are commonly used in shampoos to create a bubbly lather in hair care products. Sulfates produce a negative electrical charge when they come into contact with your hair, which can cause frizz after you shampoo. They actually deplete the natural oils in your hair and irritate your scalp, whilst also causing dehydration in your hair, which can contribute to breakage. They may also make the scalp dry and prone to irritation. Overall, they are just too damaging to your hair to be a good thing.
Why did we shove Silicones to the dark side?
Silicones are hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon-based synthetic compounds. They’re reality, they’re merely a filler that binds the strands. Regular usage of silicones can lead to significant build-up, causing the strands to become weighed down. The majority of silicones are hydrophobic, meaning they reject water. Silicone displaces and pushes water away from your body. When it accomplishes this in hair, it reduces the extremely valuable moisture content of just 3%, and the protein bonds that make up 97 percent of hair become less stable and more prone to breakage. Silicones can also create a gleaming cling film sheath around each hairshaft to make you believe that all Is well. But since it’s a false solution, the hair shaft continues to deteriorate. As the hair thins and dries up, it’s much more prone to snap and split.
Why is it best to avoid Parabens completely?
The most important reason to avoid parabens is because they are easily absorbed through your skin and are damaging to your hair. Parabens may harm your hair by drying it out, itching your scalp, fading your colour, and even causing hair loss.
Parabens are also a sort of preservative that works to keep germs and mould at bay. While parabens extend the shelf life of goods, they can cause hair to become dry and frizzy. On the most serious side, Parabens are xenoestrogens, which means they have a similar chemical structure to human hormones. Xenoestrogens are considered to interfere with hormones and may potentially cause cancer. Phew! It’s a good thing you’re looking in the right place for the right solutions!
