We’ve seen the ads. Women with seemingly unmanageable tangled, curly hair, appearing frustrated and ashamed…uh, that is…until they try the latest ‘flavor-of-the-month’ hair smoothing products that contain ‘all-natural’ and supposedly harmless ingredients that almost miraculously changes the composition of the model’s hair to a radiant, bone-straight mane that is now the envy all who look upon her.
Who wouldn’t want that kind of a miracle? Sadly, the truth is: many of these hair-smoothing, blowout products contain cancer-causing formaldehyde1,2,3. Application releases this chemical into the air and affects -not only the customer and hair stylist -but everyone around them.
Recently, a national USA television program featuring a famous doctor4, warned women about the dangers of hair care products containing formaldehyde and other hazardous chemicals proven to cause cancer. The products featured included chemical-filled, hair smoothing blowout products, as well as caustic hair relaxers. He also invited a guest reviewer who is a natural hair blogger. She did a great job in promoting the need for women to embrace their natural hair and to learn to care for their hair -naturally.
This writer now avoids formaldehyde exposure and I choose natural hair care. As a former user of these harmful hair-smoothing treatments, I seriously damaged my hair and scalp. Yes, I did. I fell for the TV advertising and even products promoted by my former hair stylists. Fortunately, my current natural hair care routine has helped my hair to become healthier and my hair loss has stopped. I rarely use heat on my hair; when I do, I take proper precautions, using natural products to protect my locks.
I can honestly say that the natural products from Saba Botanical of USA have not disappointed me. These are the products that helped me to transition from chemical relaxers and chemical hair dye to all natural hair care. I’m not the only one who has experienced superior hair care. The testimonial page on their website, as well as a number of blog posts contain true experiences of many happy and satisfied men and women, who sing the praises of these ancient botanicals.
By switching to all natural plant-based hair care products, you can avoid formaldehyde exposure and a host of other dangerous chemicals in conventional hair products. The following sources links can further help you make the wise decision to get started on a natural hair care regime.
