Myth: Having lots of lather when we shampoo  will thoroughly  clean your hair.

Truth: The compound  which is Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)  helps shampoo and other cleaning product in producing foam and lathers  may effectively remove hair build-up,but  it can also strip your off hair  of the needed  essential oils to make it healthy .

Myth: The  anti-bacterial compound benefits of Parabens found in most shampoos  outweigh the harm.

Truth: Parabens and its antibacterial component are basically applied  to lengthen  the shelf life of hair and cosmetic products. Symptoms that are associated  with prolonged  and too much exposure  to parabens are Atopic Dermatitis and Rosacea. Moreover, some studies  show that use of products containing  parabens hasten  skin damage and aging related to sun exposure.

Myth: The more fragrant our shampoo, the better.

Truth: A small dose  of perfume might not be harmful to us but the fragrance that is blended  in your hair product might contain harmful chemicals  from highly toxic ingredients which can cause  Allergic reactions and mood swings.

Myth: The  Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate used in your shampoo  that promises straightening and smoothening effect  as a natural preservative is non-toxic.
