What Are The Dangers Of Synthetic Hair Care Products

synthetic hair care products

Do you know why some companies are able to advertise these products while others can’t? Why is it that some hair care products are so expensive while others can be purchased in bulk for a lower price?

You have to be very careful when purchasing hair care products for your hair. It is very important that you are aware of what the ingredients in these products are and how they work. You also need to know how they can affect you and which one can give you more natural looking hair. One of the main ingredients that you should look out for is: dioxane. If you have any knowledge about this substance then you may already know about Dioxane. However, if you don’t know this name yet then you should start learning about it right now.

Did you know that Dioxane is considered a carcinogen by the Environmental Protection Agency? What does that mean? When Dioxane is inhaled or ingested by your body, it can cause severe health problems to you and your family including cancer. That’s why many hair care companies are avoiding using this substance in their products. Why would they do that?

According to The Federal Trade Commission, Dioxane can cause serious health problems such as liver and kidney disease, depression, birth defects, and early death of unborn fetuses. Can you see how dangerous this ingredient is for your hair? Don’t you think that hair care products that contain this substance should be banned from being sold in the United States? Of course they shouldn’t! So, why is there still some synthetic dioxane in our shampoo and other hair care products?

Big Hair Industry

The answer is simple – Big Hair Industry. Synthetic hair care products are favored over natural ingredients because they cost less. They also are easy to produce. However, consumers don’t really care whether or not a product is “natural” or not. All they really care about is the price tag – and they want to get as much as they can for their money.

There are two types of hair care products that use Dioxane. The first one is a hair cleanser. The second one is a hair remover. The manufacturers of these two popular hair care products claim that the ingredients in their products are safe.

Ingredients In Their Products Are

But do they really know what the ingredients in their products are? Are they telling you the truth? You bet they are. If they didn’t want to include harsh chemicals in their products, they wouldn’t use them. Yet they include them anyway.

Now don’t get me wrong. I am not trying to say that all hair care products should be dangerous. I just think that consumers need to be informed about the ingredients in the products that they are purchasing. You can learn more about this type of product by visiting my website today.

Three Main Ingredients

There are three main ingredients found in these products. They include: ethyl methacrylate, methyl methacrylate and Cetearyl alcohol. These ingredients are known to cause dermatitis, burning, itchiness and skin irritation in some people. Many of these people become very self-conscious about having “dandruff” or “unkempt” hair. If you are one of those people, you may want to avoid these types of hair care products.

Besides the dangers mentioned above, there are some negative side effects from these products too. For example, if you use some of these products on colored hair, it can change the color of your hair permanently. This is because the dye used in these products cannot penetrate into your hair shafts. You can get around this problem by using a wide-toothed comb instead of a brush when applying the product. This will allow the product into all of the hair strands.


Synthetic hair products are generally not that great at removing dead skin from the scalp. In fact, many of these products leave behind a thick residue of protein and dry skin which sticks to the follicle shaft. This residue then breaks off and becomes trapped underneath the scalp as a hard lather. This process can be uncomfortable or even painful. However, there is good news. Recent advances in synthetic hair care technology have made it possible to produce an excellent alternative to harsh chemicals. Some companies now make an organic shampoo that can eliminate all of the harsh ingredients mentioned above. In addition to being completely natural, it also does not contain any dyes, colors or fragrances.
