The Truth About Hair Serums
The hair product brand is not what matters but instead, the ingredients that are in the product is what gives the user the results. Hair serums can be ineffective if the serum has been formulated with chemicals; that is not what you want on your scalp. Topical applications on your hair are 15% responsible for the health of your hair and 85% are the 3 key factors:
- Your Genes - Ethnicity & Age
- Your Diet
- The Health of Your Hair Follicles.
Hair products with chemicals can cause skin irritation, an allergic reaction, stain skin and nails, photosensitivity (which increases the risk of having a sunburn). Overall, chemicals in your beauty products should be avoided at all costs.
These are the top 3 chemicals that can be found in hair serums and should not touch your scalp:
- Sodium Chloride
Majority of the skincare products with chemicals are very harmful to the environment and unfortunately, are unregulated by the FDA. With our skin being able to absorb 60% of what is applied on the skin, there is a risk of the chemicals being absorbed into our bloodstream possibly leading to health diseases.
Due to the reasons listed above and many more it just makes sense to be using natural products. In fact, it is better for your scalp and hair follicles. Natural products have all the essential vitamins and nutrients that your scalp needs, therefore is even better for you. Even better, ingredients in natural products generally do not irritate the skin.
