Why are natural ingredients better for your hair?

Our team has spent time developing a new range of all-natural hair care products, developed for the gentleman who doesn't want to use all sorts of chemicals in his hair. Now, you must be wondering why this is important.

The Gentleman’s Beard Club prides itself with a range of hair styling products that don’t contain the following ingredients which may make your hair look good in the short term but end up causing severe damage to your hair.

Below are the ingredients to avoid in hair products:

  • Parabens are used in cosmetic products as preservatives. They have not yet been proven to cause cancer, but they are easily detected in cancerous cells. In a recent Danish study, it showed that parabens could be detected in the blood and urine of healthy young male volunteers a few hours after paraben-containing lotions were applied to their skin. The authors concluded that since the chemicals could be absorbed, metabolized and excreted, they “could potentially contribute to adverse health effects."
  • Silicone is a mineral. It is used widely in hair care products. It provides hair with that elegant, clean shine. The fact is that this look is created on false pretenses. It prevents moisture from entering the hair follicle and acts as a magnet to dirt. The silicone creates an additional layer on the hair follicle, preventing moisture and conditioner from being absorbed. This results in brittle hair, leading to frizz and breakage.
  • Petrochemicals, although a low toxic threat, don’t do your hair any good. The use of this in hair products allows your style to be held for longer by preventing moisture from entering the hair follicle.

Do your hair a favour and use a trusted brand which will go to lengths to make sure you have a product that is all-natural and beneficial to your hair.
