In a world where new products are constantly hitting the shelves and competing for everyone’s attention, it can be really hard to find the right hair care products for your family to comfortably use. It can be difficult to know what products are safe for children, and where to find them.
We put together a list of things you can look for in hair care products that will
help you to feel confident and happy with what your household is using.
**Choose Paraben and Sulfate Free Products**
It is better to choose products that are free of sulfates because sulfates can
strip hair of natural oils and cause hair to be dry and brittle.
Similarly, parabens are preservatives that can cause skin and scalp irritation. The beauty and haircare industry are actively creating products that are free of harmful chemicals and irritants.
Always check the label of shampoos and conditioners for the paraben and sulfate free label before purchasing.
**Avoid Products with Dyes or Artificial Fragrance**
Dyes and artificial fragrances can also cause irritation to the skin, and can dry or
damage hair. Try to avoid using products that have added dyes for color, and
artificial chemicals for fragrance.
There are plenty of natural fragrances in hair care products that produce silky,
lovely smelling hair without worry or compromise.
Lavender oil, hibiscus flowers, and natural plant extracts such as limonene and
citronelle are safer fragrance alternatives to look for.
**Look for Gentle Ingredients**
Safe and gentle ingredients are the best to use, especially for children and
infants, who may accidentally get products in their mouth or eyes.
You can always do a small patch test on a section of your hair to see how it fairs
before fully switching to a new product.
Look for gentle ingredients in hair products such as: aloe vera, shea butter, argan oil, coconut oil, oatmilk, honey, and tea tree oil.
