This is one of the most common hair care ingredients out there. But most times common can be spelt as B-A-D. Isopropyl Alcohol is typically used to battle frizziness but comes with baggage. Isopropyl, which sometimes is called ‘rubbing alcohol’ is highly flammable and can literally suck all the moisture out of your hair. This leaves your hair feeling dry, brittle and frail.
Sodium lauryl & laureth sulfates
This is another hair care no-no! These sulfates are usually found in shampoos and are largely responsible for their lather. However, they can cause the skin to be really irritated and dry out quickly. These sulfates are also carcinogens i.e substances that can cause cancer in living tissue. They can get absorbed into the bloodstream and wreak havoc from there.
Artificial or synthetic fragrances
This doesn’t refer to all fragrances, however, choose hair care products that have more natural fragrances like essential oils etc. The synthetic fragrances commonly used can irritate your skin and even cause itching if your skin is sensitive.
