5 Common Synthetics Found in Most Hair Care Products

Sulfates. Silicones. Parabens. Phthalates. PEGs. Synthetic fragrances and dyes. Phenoxyethanol. Formaldehyde and formaldehyde donors. Petroleum and petroleum-derived ingredients. Mineral oils. Propylene glycol.

Do any of these sound familiar?

If you’ve recently read a label on your hair care products, that list probably induced a bout of déjà vu.


Toxins in Hair Products And What They Do

You’re probably familiar with a few of the toxins in hair products, as they’ve recently been under increased scrutiny. Many bottles now tout a large paraben- or sulfate-free label for this reason. And that’s a great start! But what about all the other harmful chemicals found on the ingredient lists of your shampoo, conditioner, and other hair care products?

Here are five common synthetics found in hair care products.

  • Parabens
  • Sulfates
  • Propylene glycols
  • Propylene glycols
  • Formaldehyde or formaldehyde donors
  • Synthetic fragrances

So what’s a person who wants beautiful, healthy hair that’s full of life to do?

The Benefits Of Natural Hair Care

The truth is you don’t need synthetic chemicals and additives to get the hair you’re looking for.

A common misconception is that organic or natural hair care products aren’t as effective as synthetic alternatives or don’t offer as luxurious an experience as their popular counterparts. While having a better understanding of toxins and what they actually do to your hair debunks that myth.​​​​​​

Let’s get into the benefits of natural hair care.

  • You’ll be leaving chemical effects behind. Without toxins in your hair products, you’ll be walking away from negative effects they could have on your hair and household.
  • You’ll be leaving chemical effects behind. Without toxins in your hair products, you’ll be walking away from negative effects they could have on your hair and household.
  • Natural hair care means healthier skin. Natural hair care products use nourishing ingredients like shea butter and coconut oil that increase the health of your scalp and skin. Less flake and buildup and itch, more ahhhhhhh.
  • You can embrace long-term healthy hair from root to tip. Many popular shampoos and conditioners yield great results, for a while. But before long, using the same synthetic products will leave your hair lifeless, dull, and weak. Clean hair products use natural ingredients to truly strengthen your hair.
  • Trips to the salon become less frequent. They’re less necessary. Natural hair care products don’t strip your hair of their color like some synthetic shampoos and conditioners.
  • Fragrance becomes a guilt-free word. Rather than relying on artificial chemicals to provide an overwhelming scent, doTERRA natural hair products are infused with high-quality essential oils that lend fresh, clean, and natural perfume to your hair care experience.
  • You become the environment’s ally. Natural and organic hair care products take better care of the planet.
