Do you use a lot of shampoo on your hair to get that foamy look?? but this action is not a signal of high cleaning. Yes guys!! The reason behind it is the use of sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) in shampoos. Its a less expensive cleaning detergent that is used in floor cleaners, engine degreasers and car-wash soaps. It can cause an itchy scalp and increase the process of hair loss.

Let's have a look at the details of this fact to know the cause of these harsh effects:

When you use a shampoo, you are hardly aware that this cleaning product is actually damaging your hair. Its made of sulfate compounds which strips down the essential oils from the hair. This one even causes skin irritation and itchiness.

Some studies have also found that, SLS gets heavily deposited on the skin and hair follicles. The more worse problem is that the body itself is not able to get rid of this toxic chemical. So, it keeps on getting stored in the skin tissues. And on the course of long time, it penetrates the heart, liver, lungs and brain. It works like a slow poison that gradually damages the whole immune system.

You will be shocked to know that, the sulfate chemicals in hair shampoos even contain some carcinogenic materials. So, their regular use can lead to the severity of cancer as well. The best way to get rid of these effects is, choose organic and natural products. They may not contain that shiny-foam, but they are really effective in cleaning your body and preventing the sight of any side effect.
