There is a literal flood of different products on the market today. If you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for, you can end up with pretty much any random type that’s out there, and even cause some pretty severe damage to your hair in the process. We don’t want that to happen to you, so I decided to write this article and give you some useful tips on how to choose and what to look for exactly.
Our hair is one of the things that hold the most of our vanity, whether we’re talking about men or women. Providing the best care possible for your hair is essential if you want that beautiful, flaunting mane. But that’s easier said than done nowadays. There are just so many products on the market, most of them containing dangerous substances, which can really do a number on your hair. I’ve spent my entire life researching them all, so it was about time I shared with you some of that knowledge.
We’re here to talk mostly about what materials you don’t want to see in your hair products, and by eliminating them, you will be left with everything else, which is entirely acceptable. I’m not going to write about the things you want to look for, as they’ll be pretty apparent after we eliminate everything that’s bad for your hair.
As far as my expertise goes, I’ve been a hairstylist my entire life. I’ve also been a judge in hairstyling competitions, so you can rest assured I have enough knowledge and experience to guide you on this journey. I’ve researched all there is about tons of different products and manufacturers, so I know what to look out for, and what’s good for your hair and scalp health in general. If I managed to convince you, you are more than welcome to read the rest of the article, and I promise I will not disappoint you. I’ll keep it short and sweet, just the way I always do.
We’ll start with this note; you should steer clear of the products that will dry out your hair. The most important thing you do for your hair, in order to keep it healthy and beautiful is keeping it hydrated. Dry hair is very prone to breaking, and it doesn’t look very flattering at all. By drying it out, you will remove that WOW factor you’re going for, ad endanger its health in the process of making it look less appealing. Sodium and sulfate combinations are the things you want to avoid here. Greasy hair is certainly not the look we are going for, but you wouldn’t use an engine degreaser to solve that problem, now would you? That’s exactly what these substances are, and they are certainly a huge overkill when it comes to getting the grease out of our hair. They can cause some serious damage to your hair, but they shouldn’t come near it in the first place. Anything used on an engine as a degreaser doesn’t have a place in you hair care cabinet!
You also absolutely don’t want anything that will cause your hair to break. Isopropyl Alcohol is what I’m talking about. Do you really want the same thing that’s used for wood polish or antifreeze coming anywhere near your hair? I didn’t think so. Hair breakage is a serious problem, especially if you like your hair very long. These chemicals will stop those efforts before you realize what hit you. People usually don’t blame their hair products for these occurrences, blaming the genetics instead. Sometimes that might well be the case, but most of the time it’s all about the hair products you’re using. So, steer clear of these alcohol chemicals, and look at your hair transforming.
I hope I was of some assistance today, be sure to let me know if I did or didn’t.
