How lovely hair appears when it’s shining and smooth! On the other hand, the comments that one receives after having public hair fall are emotionally distressing. The culprit behind hair loss is not only the hair product you use or your underlying health concerns; the culprit is you, indirectly, because you are not selecting products with the proper ingredients.
According to a Sash Products survey, over 10,000 hair suffers admitted to making mistakes when choosing hair products. We spoke with Supritha Ramesh, Founder of Sash Products, to learn more about common hair blunders.
Shampoo with Sodium lauryl sulphate(SLS), Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate (ALS)
Shampoos containing anionic sulphates, such as SLS and ALS, leave a negative charge on the hair surface, making it frizzy. Furthermore, it is a strong cleaner that may dissolve the hair cuticle layer, causing the hair to dry up and break.
Using herbal shampoos containing a variety of components
The organic and herbal substances are high in H+ ions, which help to balance the pH of the scalp. The pH of the scalp should be between 4.5 and 5.5. A product with too many ingredients should be avoided.
Use of abrasives
The use of abrasive-laden shampoos is unquestionably a concern. Abrasives are an age-old means of removing grease from the hair, but they are also one of the major causes of the cuticle of the hair eroding, rendering it unsuited for normal nutrition absorption.
Not being gentle while washing
The most typical mistake during shampooing is not being gentle and rubbing the hair as hard as a dirty towel. Wet hair is said to be more delicate and five times more fragile. So be cautious when shampooing.
Not selecting shampoo based on hair type
The shampoos contain a variety of components that may or may not be appropriate with specific hair types. Examine the glycerine, oil, silicone, and keratin content. All of the following elements must be somewhat high for wavy, curly, and coiled hair, but they do not need to be higher for straight hair. If the above chemicals are present in greater quantities in a shampoo for straight hair, the hair may become oily, preventing nutrients from penetrating the hair.
