When did mankind start using shampoos and conditioners to wash their hair and exactly when did these become the norm? Earlier, there were special herbal formulations that were carried on from generation to generation until the industrial revolution started off mass produced products and increased the demand for products like hair cleaning shampoos. However, what most individuals do not realize is that shampoos of today usually contain a lot of harmful and toxic chemicals which are great at cleansing the hair but also can cause some damage to the hair if not used in moderation.
Such ingredients such as sulfates are absolutely amazing at the removal of all unnecessary organic matter such as dead skin cells, dandruff and grime to be washed away from the hair but unfortunately they are more powerful than we ever imagined as they also dissolve the natural oil that the hair produces and also strips away some really important nutrients as well. This will reduce the quality of your hair and will make them more dry and brittle. There are also ways to cleanse that scalp and hair without the use of harmful toxins such as sulfates and this article is going to explain exactly that.
We are of course talking about clarifying shampoos that are so amazing at providing that much needed deep cleanse which will clear out all issues and build up from your hair. When chemical products with sulfates such as conditioners, shampoos and serums are applied to the scalp, it causes buildup and when there is buildup, your hair will produce even more oil and sebum which will cause even more blockage and lead to skin diseases such as psoriasis or dandruff. However clarifying shampoos work just as well even if there are no sulfates in them and the ones on our list today are made entirely from all natural products which fix the problem of buildup and residue in your head and promote healthier looking hair.
