Hair Products Review – Ingredients to Avoid

Buenas Tardes Senoritas,

When you read the ingredients in hair products, are you not amazed at how much one recipient contains? I always am, a 20 oz bottle has about 25 or more ingredients, some with names I can hardly pronounce or even know what they are or what they do.

On my natural hair journey, have done a lot of researching on what can be used to maintain my hair healthy, but also found that certain ingredients do not work at all with my hair texture, 4C and sometimes can mess it up which is a pain to deal with.

The following ingredients are ones that I try to avoid using, especially long term, because they can cause damage to our tresses:

  • Aminomethyl Proponal
  • Ammonium Laureth Sulfate
  • Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate
  • Ammonium Xylene Sulfonate
  • Coal Tar
  • Diethanolamine (DEA)
  • Diazolidinyl Urea
  • Fragrance
  • Formaldehyde
  • Imidazolidinyl Urea
  • Isopropyl Alcohol
  • Lanolin
  • Lead
  • Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylparaben and Ethylparaben.
  • Mineral Oil
  • Momoethnanolamine (MEA)
  • Paraffin
  • Petroleum 
  • Propylene Glycol
  • PVP/VA Copolymer
  • Selenium Sulfide
  • Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate (SLS)
  • Sulfur
  • Synthetic Colors 
  • Synthetic Fragrances
  • Triethanolamine (TEA)
