Many people, particularly women would do anything when it comes to care of their hair. That is great opportunity for the companies that produce shampoos, conditioners and other products for hair care as they have financial benefit from it.
Despite the fact that these products provide certain effects, there is one really big disadvantage about these products and that is the fact that they contain toxins and dangerous chemicals. Moreover, most of these products are very expensive.
Recent studies have shown that the chemical that blocks absorption of the nutrient choline which actually is vital for brain development is found in most of the shampoos that you can find on the market, and it is used as thickening agent. Namely, this was discovered by the researchers at University of North Carolina. It comes to chemical named Diethanolamine (DEA).
Benzene may be the cause for Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), leukemia and other types of cancer, and it was proved that in the shampoos, the most common chemical compounds are alkyl benzene sulfonates.
Shampoos also contain highly toxic carcinogen called 1.4-dioxane. This ingredient may cause cancer and in same time may be the reason for kidney, respiratory and neurological toxicity.
