How many of you have brought a high end shampoo without looking at the ingredients? 

Shampoo is such a common thing that you sometimes ignore to look at its ingredients. 

Most shampoos contain certain ingredients that do more harm to your hair than good. Some of them are absorbed into your scalp and in your body that can affect your health.

Most of the chemicals found in many shampoos are skin irritants, hormone disruptors or to some extent promotes cancer.

So next time when you are shampoo-shopping, if you find the below mentioned ingredients it's time to break up with your shampoo.

1) Parabens

  • Commonly found in skin care products, parabens are also found in certain hair products.

  • Parabanes contain chemical components such as methylparaben and propylparaben, that help in hair growth.

  • However, studies have linked parabens to breast cancer. Therefore if you find it in your shampoo, it is best to avoid it.

2) Synthetic Fragrance

  • Many shampoo have floral, mystical  or oceanic fragrance.It might smell good and give a nice feeling, but unfortunately, these fragrances are a product of many chemicals that are bad for your hair.

  • Fragrances causes disruption of endocrine hormone. It also clogs the lymphatic system and instigates organ toxicity.

  • Certain fragrances can lead to scalp irritation, itchiness and redness.

3) Sulfates

  • The sodium and ammonium lauryl sulfates are major ingredients found in any shampoo.

  • These chemical compounds help in removing dirt and grime from your hair roots by sticking on the scalp.

  • In this process, they wipe out the essential hair oils present on your scalp thus leaving your hair dry, brittle and frizzy.

  • These chemical compounds also contain cancer-causing ingredients.

  • Furthermore sulfate causes liver damage, skin rashes and eye damage.

4) Isopropyl Alcohol

  • Isopropyl Alcohol, derived from petroleum, acts as a cleansing agent for oils. 

  • It is used as a shampoo ingredient to remove excess oil from the scalp. 

  • However, just like sulfates, isopropyl alcohol ends up polishing most of the essential oils from your scalp leading to dryness and frizziness.

  • Isopropyl alcohol also leaves the hair brittle.

5) Formaldehyde

  • Though it is found in low quantity, it is better to avoid products containing this.

  • However, increased exposure can lead to hair breakage.

  • Formaldehyde causes scalp, skin and eye irritation.

Formaldehyde is mostly used in keratin treatment. Studies have found out that it can also lead to cancer if exposed for a long time.
