Myths and Truths Behind Chemicals in Hair Products

Many of us use hair products such as shampoos, gel, mousses without knowing much of the chemicals that are in them. Some of these substances appear in amounts that may have significant effect on our health and well-being.
Novuhair, Nature’s answer to hair loss, gives you brief and relevant information to help you decide the right products to use.
Myth: Shampoo must produce lots of lather in order to properly clean your hair.
Truth: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) is a compound that helps shampoo and other cleaning product in producing foam and bubbles. Though it may effectively remove hair build-up, it can also strip off essential oils that are needed to keep your hair healthy. It may cause hair damage by being an irritant.
Myth:  The benefit of Parabens brings more good than harm.
Truth: Parabens are basically used to prolong the shelf life of hair and cosmetic products by preventing the growth of molds and bacteria. However, over exposure to parabens can cause Atopic Dermatitis and Rosacea. Further studies also show that use of products with parabens accelerates skin damage and aging related to sun exposure.
Myth: My hair smells terrific! I love the perfume scent from my hair product.
Truth: A nice whiff of perfume might not be harmful but the fragrance that is mixed in your hair product might have come from harmful substances from highly toxic ingredients which can lead to Allergic reactions and mood swings. That perfume is better off somewhere else.
Myth: Hair products that promise straightening and smoothening effect use non-toxic Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate as a natural preservative.
Truth: Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate is a substance used in making your hair soft and bouncy, although it is considered natural preservative, also releases formaldehyde which can lead to skin and eye irritations. Prolonged use may also affect your immune system.
