When you are looking for good hair care products it’s important to remember to look for products that moisturize the hair without clogging the pores.
Caring for our hair is one of the most talked about topics for many women. Wondering which shampoo, conditioner or gels are good for their hair can be a contemplative task. However, with proper research, finding the best black hair care products can be less complicated than we initially think.
Here are some tips for finding the best black hair care products suited for you:
A lot of synthetic colors are actually used to make cosmetics look appealing. Many of these colors will be labeled FD C or DC followed by a color number. For example, FD C Red No. 6., but what many consumers don’t realize is that many of these colors cause skin sensitivity and irritation.
According to the Consumers Dictionary of Cosmetic Ingredients it is said that some of these colors are made of coal tar which causes depletion of oxygen in the body that can be quite harmful to the body. Although these colors are not completely necessary for many products, many consumers continue to expect products to look a certain way and that is why the manufacturers add color - although it may not be safe for the consumer.
Do your research and check out the ingredients in the products you buy. Remember, it’s your health that matters.
Most skin care products like deodorants, skin creams and shampoos contain fragrance. What’s frightening is many of these fragrances are carcinogenic – yes, that means toxic!The FDA has actually made public some symptoms reported by users of products with synthetic fragrances. Some of the symptoms have included rashes, headaches, skin discoloration, dizziness, coughing and even vomiting!
PETROLATUM and MINERAL OIL:
Although most lip and hair products are made up of petrolatum and mineral oil don’t be fooled. Petrolatum is mineral oil jelly which can be harmful when used on the skin and it actually causes premature aging.
Did you know that baby oil is 100% mineral oil. But what mineral oil actually does is it coats the skin making it unable to breathe freely disrupting the skins natural immune barrier. This blockage does not allow the skin to absorb moisture and nutrition.
In order for the skin to be able to release toxins freely, the skin needs to be able to freely breathe and the petrolatum and mineral oil stops this from occuring.
Be aware of what you’re putting on your skin and in your body.
