Let's talk about keeping your hair on point without compromising your health. We know you're all about looking good and feeling great, but did you know that some hairstyling products could be doing more harm than good? Check out these five ingredients you'll want to steer clear of to keep your hair looking fresh and healthy.

1. Petrolatum

Derived from petroleum, it can create a barrier on the scalp, clogging pores and potentially leading to scalp issues and hair thinning.

2. Polyethylene
Glycol (PEG)

Is a chemical used to improve the texture. Can be contaminated with carcinogens and harmful impurities.

3. Silicones

Sure, silicones might make your hair feel slick and smooth, but they can also leave behind a nasty buildup that's hard to shake. Keep your locks looking and feeling fresh by choosing silicone-free products that won't weigh you down.

4. Mineral Oil

Mineral oil is a byproduct of petroleum, formed during the distillation process of petroleum [that creates] gasoline. Can block pores and prevent the scalp from breathing.

5. Fragrance (most common)

Synthetic chemicals used to make fragrances are classified as allergens, hormone disruptors, asthma triggers, neurotoxins & carcinogens. The punchline: fragrances are highly toxic and can cause allergic reactions.

Your hair deserves better than harmful ingredients that can mess with your health. By avoiding these five troublemakers in your hairstyling products, you can keep your hair looking fresh and your confidence sky-high.
