Natural Shampoo and Conditioners

Last year I watched a segment of "the View" on hair problems -- very enlightening. So, thought I'd pass this along......I have purchased and am using all natural shampoo and am really pleased with the way my hair looks, shines and more split ends!

Have you ever read the ingredients on your shampoo bottle? Bet it contains
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate That's a high volume synthetic chemical used in consumer products and regulated as a pesticide. Sodium lauryl sulfate can be drying and harsh for the hair and cause eye irritation, allergic reactions, and hair loss.

These substances provide a FOAMING quality to the product, allowing for better distribution of the product while washing hair or skin and while brushing teeth. When rinsed off, the product will have cleaned the area but will have taken moisture from the top layers of skin.

Soooo, what would you rather have, a headful of foam OR hair and scalp that still has it's natural oils? There's enough chemicals in a shampoo bottle to embalm an elephant! I would find hair bunnies in the shower drain after washing my hair -- and would wonder how many shampoos it would take before I was BALD!

And my husband, in addition to inheriting the classic Thomas A. Edison "balding on top" hairstyle, was shampooing his hair to death! Although he hasn't achieved the head full of wavy hair that he had as a teenager, there is a little more there than he had before. Its very fine but it's hair!

There are many "natural" shampoos and conditioners on the market.....just be sure to read the ingredients. Look for
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and if you find it.....look for another product.
