What is wrong with commercial shampoos?
Regular shampoo can wreak havoc on not only our hair but also our bodies. Because it contains harmful and synthetic chemicals that are absorbed through the skins pores we are putting ourselves at risk by directly applying carcinogenic chemicals into the scalp. By doing this on a regular basis we are basically inviting these dangerous ingredients in to damage our system and potentially putting ourselves at risk of cancer and disease. Ingredients typically contained in regular shampoos have been proven to reduce the size of hair follicles, irritate and disrupt oil glands, dry out the scalp, which ultimately can result in hair loss.
When choosing your hair care products you should try to avoid products containing the following ingredients:
- Sodium Lauryl Sulfates
- Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate
- Mureth Sulfate
- Derivatives of Lauryl Alcohol
- Mureth Sulfate
- Propylene Glycol (Antifreeze)
- Olefin Sulfonate (Deodorized Kerosene)
Commercial shampoos are often harsh detergents that strip hair entirely and use chemical additives to correct the problems created by stripping. In addition, sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate, often manufactured from petroleum. They are detergents added to create foam as you shampoo. These same substances occur in car washes, engine degreasers, and garage floor cleansers. If you experience eye or scalp irritation, or tangled hair after shampooing, sodium sulfates are likely causes.
Two other petroleum derivatives in shampoo formulas, propylene glycol and butylene glycol, soak into skin and debilitate protein and cellular structures.
Also check your commercial shampoos for parabens (methyl, ethyl, propyl, or butyl). These chemicals extend the life of bottled shampoos by limiting microbial growth, but they have a negative effect on our natural hormone production.
Carcinogenic as well are diethanolamine and triethanolamine, used as emulsifying and foaming additives. It is the ammonia in their chemistry that delivers the toxicity. Ammonia is also capable of causing eye irritations, other allergic reactions, and, paradoxically, dry hair and skin.
