Picture this: you’re at the store trying to find the right products for your hair type – but there are so many options. There are hundreds of hair products and brands out there; how do you know which one will do what it claims? The truth is, brands claim all kinds of things but it’s not always backed up. To find products that are safe to use on your hair, there are a few ingredients you should watch out for.
Sulfates are often used in cheap hair products, especially shampoo and conditioner. Unfortunately, sulfates will strip your hair of moisture, leaving it dry, brittle, and unhealthy. If you have sensitive skin or suffer from a skin condition like rosacea, you will especially want to steer clear of sulfates. They can be harsh on the scalp causing itchiness, dryness, and flaking.
Just like sulfates, parabens can dry out the skin and may irritate your scalp. However, parabens have many other harmful effects. They can cause the color to fade faster and have even been shown to increase hair loss. The long-term damage parabens can cause are just not worth the risk.
Vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients
On the bright side, there are many great hair products out there that are made without any of these damaging ingredients. In fact, we use them right here at DeRiah Boutique Salon.
