The ingredients found in many popular hair care products contain toxic ingredients that can cause various health risks such as blindness, decreased sperm count, weakened immune system, and even the risk of some types of cancer.
When we shampoo and condition our hair, the pores on our scalp absorb the chemicals that are used to make the products we use. Often, people don't pay attention to the ingredients of the hair products they use. Due to all these reasons, many experts recommend people to make use of natural and organic shampoo and conditioner to get rid of several side effects that happened due to harsh chemicals.

Most shampoos contain raw chemicals used as detergents, beautiful fragrances that are known only to the manufacturers through chemicals, synthetic dyes, and many other ingredients that are toxic to the body.
Sodium Laurel Sulphate (SLS), also known as Sodium Dodecyl and Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLFS), is one of the laundry detergents used in popular shampoos. However, what doesn't inform people is that this chemical is highly toxic to young children and can even cause blindness. Not only that, other risks associated with SLS and its derivatives include cataracts, a possible link between SLS and SLFS with cancer, skin irritation, dermatitis, premature hair loss, scalp irritation, eczema, dandruff, and others.
Hair conditioner is no better and it can get worse because generally, people let the conditioner sit on their scalp for a few minutes before rinsing it off. This gives the harmful hair components more time to enter your system through the pores on your scalp.
