Avoid Shampoos With SLS if You Have Hair Loss Shampoo Concerns
HealthNewsDigest.com is the second reliable publisher that I have seen recently who has some not so good news for hair care product manufactures who use the chemical Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) in their products.
If this ingredient in fact does accelerate hair loss it is sure to be a brand killer, especially in the men’s markets. It is sure to be a buzz on all of the men’s hair loss forums.
Quite frankly, if you have healthy hair, I would not be ultra concerned about the issue . . . no need to throw out a bottle that contains Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. But if you have a hair loss family history you might want to shy away from these shampoos.
Traditional shampoos and conditioners, the most commonly used hair care products, contain a synthetic detergent called Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), which generates a sudsy lather. But SLS can dry the scalp, stripping the skin’s surface of its protective lipids. It can also cause follicle damage, hair loss, skin and eye irritation, and allergic reactions such as rashes and hives.
A great hair loss shampoo is MiN New York WASH Shampoo a nutrient enriched color safe shampoo refreshes the hair and scalp.
