Happy Earth month! I hope you all celebrated earth day yesterday by doing some good for the planet. In light of celebrating the earth let’s talk about products that are green and good for the environment as well as for your very own eco-system!
By now you should know there are good and bad hair products, but what you probably didn’t know there are INGREDIENTS that you should be avoiding too.
Love that bright pink perfume-y shampoo that smells like a field of strawberries melted with vanilla? Unfortunately it’s not natural and that’s usually a big red flag. Companies use red 40, yellow 5 and blue 1 are just a few ingredients to avoid. But get this... the shampoo you might be using everyday as well as conditioner, body wash and face wash is a HUGE disruptor in your chemical balance in your body causing hormonal imbalance. And that’s just what you put in your body in the morning before you’ve even had your cup of coffee! Check below on some other major ingredients you should be avoiding in your skin and haircare routines:
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) Sulfates are surfactants which are compounds that lower the surface tension of your hair
Polyethylene Glycols (PEG)
Below is a list of some shampoos that are approved and safe for you to try & use
Living Libations Healthy Hair Care
