Harmful Chemicals in Hair Products

When we purchase hair products, it is for the purpose of improving the look, feel, and health of our hair. The last thing we want to do is spend our hard-earned money on products that hurt our hair, but that is exactly what we do when we purchase non organic hair products.

Unnatural products are full of harmful chemicals. Unfortunately, they do not just damage our hair- they can actually seep into our bodies and damage other things as well. The following are just some of the chemicals found in hair products- especially shampoos- and how they can hurt us.

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate

These two chemicals have been known to induce eye irritation, and asthma attacks as well as damage the hair follicles.

Propylene Glycol

Propylene glycol is an iffy one. It is said to be generally safe, but seeing that it is the main ingredient in antifreeze, most people are not convinced. That fact makes it seem risky. If nothing else, it has been known to cause a bad reaction in people who suffer from eczema and other skin conditions.

Synthetic Fragrances

Synthetic fragrances are made out of different chemicals depending on the particular fragrance. Different synthetic fragrances have been found to cause coughing, vomiting, dizziness, headaches, and much more.

Diethanolamine (DEA)

Diethanolamine is used in shampoo to create lather. It may be fun to watch it bubble up, but toxicity studies showed that DEA applied to mice skin caused both liver and kidney cancer. It easily seeps into the skin and can be toxic to your brain.


Alcohol quite simply dries out whatever it is placed on, in this case, that would be your hair. There are a couple that help retain moisture, but they are often mixed in with those that do not.


Formaldehyde is probably the most well-known word on this list as it is a known carcinogen that causes a lot of problems for humans. Shampoos have what are known as formaldehyde releasers though they come in different names so they are not recognizable.


Dimethicone is actually a type of plastic- silicone to be exact. It prevents the good stuff from getting in and the bad stuff from getting out. It makes hair greasy for the sake of shine. It also clogs your pores which can lead to hair loss.
