Most of us use a hair conditioner to reverse the damage that the environment causes to our hair, so it may be a surprise to find out that most normal, chemical based conditioners have potentially harmful substances in them. If you find you have a scalp irritation, it may not necessarily be dandruff or dermatitis: try changing to a chemical free conditioner
Regular conditioners contain harmful ingredients
Isopropyl alcohol is normally found in wood varnish and antifreeze but has also found its way into regular hair conditioner. It is particularly found in products for people with colored or dyed hair.
Imidazolidinyl urea & Hydantoin (DMHM)
Imidazolidinyl urea and Hydantoin (DMHM) are found in nearly all hair care products. They cause the release of formaldehyde, which is used to prevent against carcinogenic nitrosamine production and can be found in most chemical hair conditioners. Unfortunately, as you probably already know, formaldehyde is itself a carcinogen and can often cause great irritation to people with chemical sensitivities.
Chemical free or Natural conditioners usually are based on a mixture of natural oils and butters from, amongst many, olive, flax and essential oils as well as shea and cocoa butters. And these are combined with natural fragrances and other nourishing ingredients such as honey, proteins, B vitamins and aloe vera.
