    Things Nobody has Told You About Botanical Hair Products

    Botanical Hair Products

    What botanical hair products are right for you?

    Botanical hair products are showing up more and more everyday replacing harmful chemicals and preservatives. Chemicals like parabens (a preservative linked to breast cancer), sulfates (harsh detergents found in engine degreasers), propylene glycol (used in industrial antifreeze), synthetic colors and dyes (potent carcinogens derived from coal-tar), DEA and TEA (ammonia compounds that can cause allergic reactions) are just a few of these harmful elements being replaced with natural botanical ingredients in hair care products today. What specific botanical hair products are right for you?
    I came across this article from Beth Furtwangler with American Salon, who gives a great report on what these plants, herbs and oils do for your hair as well as a specific hair product that uses the botanical ingredients for its results.
