If you are reading this article then I am guessing you are one of those people who really cares about what products touch your body and how they react on your skin, scalp, hair, etc. That is what makes you different than other people who use products blindly without caring much about its side effects on body. Now let us jump on the topic of natural shampoo and why it is important.
Well, logically it makes obvious sense that shampoos make direct contact with your scalp and hair but there is more than that. Certain chemicals or preservatives in those products not on only harm your skin on short term basis but also might lead to fatal conditions like cancer. While problems like cancer are on the longer term, there are many short term problems that come along like; inflammation in scalp, itchy scalp, thin hair, hair loss, dandruff, oily scalp and many more are just indicators that something around the line is not good.
So if this is the case, what can be done to prevent it? It’s quite simple, generally check the ingredients of your hair care/scalp care products, what compounds does it consist of, which chemicals are good, which are not, what is the ratio of chemicals to natural ingredients. Now this is on the general basis, what if we could look a bit deeper? Right?
Take any shampoo that you have used by far, if you remember, did that shampoo have a texture? Like milky thick or watery thick?; Did it have any color? Usually I have seen white color in most of the shampoos, worst of it, it has some glittery shiny particles which is nothing but chemicals or micro beads. Now all the mentioned above is total CRAP! Yes you heard that right, it is pure chemical which claims to be good for you but in reality is not!!
So what can we do? It is quite simple, let me take one of the products for an example or benchmark. It is called “5a Juniper Liquid Shampoo”, if you have seen this product, you know what I am talking about. The texture of this shampoo is watery, like WATER! The color of it is transparent, like WATER! It is viscous just like WATER!
The reason I emphasize on Water is because it is one of the purest resource on Earth for any living being. Now if it has properties of Water that does signify something right? Precisely my stance that 5a Juniper is a marvel but less people know about it!
When asked the company about it, they say that why does a shampoo require color? Why does it have to be stuffed with all artificial chemicals just to look pretty? And that does make sense when you think about it, just imagine do you want your shampoo to look pretty when poured on hands or you want your scalp and hair to look pretty. So if second option is your choice then why do you use those chemical infused liquids who hardly do anything good but just smell fresh for a while?
Think about it! It matters!!
