While I don’t bleed for any manufacturer, there are some companies that I currently support. I have sifted through all the manufacturer’s marketing schemes and found products that do their job!
The following is a list of ingredients I look for when deciding what products I will suggest to my clients:
*pH balanced to 4.5-5.5 (if it doesn’t say the actual numbers on the bottle, the pH could be too high or too low, resulting in frizz, color fade, dryness, etc)
*Moisture: different hair types need different amounts and types of moisture. Straight hair needs proteins such as keratin, silk, soy, or wheat. Curly hair needs EFA’s (essential fatty acids), and chemically treated hair need both proteins and EFA’s.
*NO Salt: Salt shows up in even the most expensive product lines. Why? It’s a thickening agent and it’s cheap. It also dries out your hair and pulls the color out. If your shampoo has sodium chloride listed in the ingredients, none of the good ingredients even matter.
*Sulfates and Parabens: Here’s where it gets tricky. Sulfates are NOT bad! They are cleansers and needed to clean the hair. Parabens are preservatives. Marketing has done a real number on these ingredients. When combined with other poor ingredients or when used on the wrong types of hair these things become bad for our hair. If the products I recommend have these things in them I have determined that the rest of the ingredients either cancel these out or work in tandem to do their job properly.
How to read your ingredients: The higher up on the list, the more of that ingredient there is. So if keratin, silk, oils, etc… show up towards the bottom of the list there isn’t a whole lot of it in there. Doesn’t mean it’s bad, it just might not work for your hair type.
How to decide what products will work for you: When I suggest a product to you it is like a doctor prescribing medications; they start you at a certain level and you go home and take the prescribed medication. After some time using it, you go back and talk to your doctor about how you feel with the new medication and they will either lower, maintain, or raise your dosage based on what you tell them. The same goes with hair. What works for Sally might be awful for Sue. It’s trial and error mixed with science. I am your hair doctor. I give you product suggestions based on what you tell me you like or don’t like about your hair. No one wants a product graveyard under their sinks…. please see my refund page for how to return product you truly don’t like.
