New Organic Products

Hey everyone! So my mom just recently purchased a bunch of organic products for me that I absolutely love!  For the past couple of months, I've been really into using shampoos & conditioners that are free of sodium lauryl sulfates, parabens, and other damaging chemicals.  Here is why!

Why are sulfates & parabens so dangerous? --> Sodium Lauryl Sulfate has protein denaturing properties, which causes a degenerative effect on the cell membrane. It also dissolves the oils on your skin, which causes a drying effect.  In addition, it can cause irritation on your skin and strip your hair of its natural oils!  Research shows that parabens play a role in the development of breast cancers and other health issues.
Why are these dangerous chemicals still used in products? --> It is cheap to manufacture! These chemicals are also used in many soaps, stain removers, fabric glues, and detergents.
Who should especially avoid products with sulfates? --> People with really dry hair, people who suffer from eczema, anyone with oily skin, and those with chemically damaged hair or color treated hair.  The sulfates fade the color in your hair!

*Important: Always read the labels when purchasing products.  And just because a product says it's "natural," does NOT mean it is free from Sulfates or Parabens!
