There are some hair products that aren’t as wonderful as their manufacturers would have you believe. It’s time to look into the types of hair products that can be bad for your hair and your health.
The Environmental Working Group recommends avoiding chemical hair straightening treatments, which often use harsh or toxic chemicals and “make misleading safety claims.” While many people think it’s hairstylists, not their clients, who should actually be worried about exposure to these products, the EWG still recommends avoiding chemical hair straighteners, particularly keratin treatments. In fact, some of these products use formaldehyde, a preservative that’s considered a human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, for its hair-stiffening action.
