When you are looking for a shampoo, you tend to think about the price and then its fragrance. And then you check if it is the right type of shampoo for your hair type. If everything is according to your budget and needs, you buy it.
However, and while buying a shampoo doesn’t need to be hard, there is another very important aspect that you are missing out when you are buying a new one: to check if the shampoo is natural.
The truth is that most shampoos that you see for sale on the market include a wide range of chemicals that tend to harm not only your hair but your scalp and body as well. So, while it may look nice and smell good, you are actually harming you and harming your overall health at the same time. This is why you should always look for natural haircare instead.
So, when you are looking to buy a natural haircare product no matter if it is a shampoo or a conditioner, you need to realise that you’re doing this not only for you but for the overall environment as well.
Is Your Shampoo Poisoning Your Drinking Water?
One of the things that we would like to point out is that more and more people are already looking for natural haircare products instead of the regular haircare products they used to buy. And while this is a great thing, we believe that it is important to stress out that if you still keep using a chemical-shampoo, then you may be contributing to the contamination of drinking water.
In case you don’t see the connection, just keep reading. You will easily understand how you may be doing this without even knowing it.
One of the ingredients that you can usually find on most shampoos for sale on the market is 1,4-dioxane. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, dioxane is classified as a “likely human carcinogen”.
Dioxane is a byproduct of plastic production and it’s very common to find it in shampoos and body washes. However, this ingredient doesn’t readily biodegrade. In fact, it is a contaminant that may not only harm your hair and scalp as it can also contaminate drinking water.
One of the biggest concerns about dioxane is the fact that dioxane discharged from industrial plants seeps into water supplies. And while you may think that there may be a filter you can use, there really isn’t.
What To Do To Help Prevent This
The best thing you can do to prevent this is to use only natural haircare products. The use of these shampoos and conditioners will not only improve your hair and scalp as they won’t put your drinking water in danger. Yes, you are only one person – so help us to get the message out there.
