Natural Hair Care Products

Natural hair care products Organic and natural hair care products are becoming increasingly popular these days. Although cosmetic manufacturers offer a wide array of mass market personal care products formulated with cheap synthetic ingredients, a lot of consumers prefer natural cosmetics. Natural hair care products are free of potentially harmful ingredients and safe for your health.

A lot of people think that their hair problems (dandruff, brittleness, oily scalp, etc.) are caused solely by their hair type and there's little that can be done about it. But the use of properly selected hair care products can do miracles to your hair. Most cheap shampoos and conditioners are simply unable to take good care of your hair because the quality of their ingredients leaves much to be desired. Mass market cosmetics are so affordable because they are formulated with cheap synthetic ingredients. But when you're saving money on shampoo, you're actually saving money on your health. The matter is that some synthetic ingredients can be quite harmful.

All shampoos contain surfactants, compounds that lower the surface tension and act as detergents and foaming agents. Without them, shampoos wouldn't be able to lather and cleanse hair and scalp properly. Most mass market shampoos are formulated with sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) or sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). SLS and SLES are inexpensive and effective foamers found in many personal care products (shampoos, soaps, toothpastes, etc.). They provide shampoos with good foaming and cleansing properties. Unfortunately, they also are irritants like many other detergents.

SLS and SLES are known irritants, with the irritation increasing with concentration. They remove oils from skin and can cause skin and eye irritation. Regular use of personal care products that contain these surfactants may worsen skin problems in individuals with chronic skin hypersensitivity. Good news: contrary to popular misconception, SLS and SLES are not carcinogenic. But this does not mean that they are good for your health. Unlike mass market shampoos, natural and organic hair care products are formulated with mild natural surfactants that are much less irritating than their synthetic analogues.

Along with sulfates, cheap mass market shampoos, conditioners and hair masks often contain other potentially harmful synthetic ingredients such as parabens or polyethylene glycol. They may disrupt the hydro-lipid balance of the scalp, cause scalp flaking and dandruff, make the hair dry, dull and brittle. That is why the popularity of natural shampoos has been growing consistently.

Natural and organic hair care products are free of harmful synthetic ingredients. Of course, absence of inexpensive ingredients affects the price of these products. They are more expensive than their mass market counterparts. However, many of them are still affordable. Besides, cheapest is the dearest. When you buy cheap cosmetics, you pay with your health.

Natural shampoos and other hair products are formulated with natural ingredients (vegetable and essential oils, herbal extracts). All useful properties of medicinal herbs are concentrated in natural shampoos, conditioners, serums and masks. Organic extracts from medicinal herbs will help you to cope with all common hair problems such as hair loss, brittleness, itchy or flaky scalp, dandruff, split ends and others. Brands that specialize in the production of natural cosmetics create herbal blends for each hair types. Each blend consists of extracts and oils that enhance each other's effect.

To cut a long story short, natural hair care products are formulated with natural ingredients and do not contain potentially harmful synthetic compounds. They are safe for human health and the environment and will help to keep your hair healthy, strong, shiny and beautiful.
