Chemicals in hair care products are one of the most alarming when it comes to toxicity. Hair care is a top priority for both men and women, while some pay little attention to their hair care needs, others go to greater lengths to maintain beautiful hair. It's important to carefully consider the product label when looking for healthy hair care products, the first thing to look for is the list of ingredients. Check the label carefully or look for Certified products that adhere to a strict health and safety criteria, like SCA's toxic-free brands that care™ they do not use nasty chemicals in their products, instead they choose plant based foaming agents and natural oils, extracts and herbs to balance and condition your hair effectively.
Here are some of the worst chemicals commonly used in hair care products: Parabens, synthetic colours and dyes, synthetic fragrances, triclosan, phthalates, Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) / Sodium laureth sulfate (SLES), formaldehyde, touline and Polyethylene Glycol (PEG).
