Dimethicone, it is from Silicone family. Well it does make your hair shiny but at an unhealthier cost. It blocks moisture and nutrients, resulting in collection dirt, sweat and fungus. It also clogs pores which causes irritation and messes up oil secretion near the follicle which is required for optimum hair and scalp.
Sodium Chloride, yes you guessed it right, it is “Salt”, yes the salt that we add to food. What it does in shampoo is thickens it to give that slimy texture, which at first place is unhealthy. Salt can react differently on scalp causing dryness and itch, which then delegates the problem of hair loss. This is one of those pigments who cause inflammation when shampoos go in your eyes, which is an instant reaction of unacceptance.
Last name for today is SLES, shorter the name, worst the effect it is! SLES is a very strong detergent which only knows harsh washing. It sweeps away all the natural oil and moisture from the hair making it all rough, fizzy and unhealthy. Natural oils are secreted by Hair Follicle for maintenance of hair but then SLES cleans them away making it more vulnerable to problems.
So here are 5 monsters that you should be aware of and be taken care of. Next time you buy shampoo, remember to eliminate these demons.
