Walk into a supermarket, pull a random hair care product off the shelf, and turn it over. Chances are good you will see a dizzyingly long list of ingredients, many with complex names. Ever wonder which of those ingredients are okay, and which you should steer clear of? Let’s go over some of the top hair care product ingredients to avoid.
The list above is not an extensive one—there are some other ingredients commonly used in hair care products you will also want to avoid. But an exhaustive list would take a long time to go over.
What can you do to avoid toxic hair care products? Thankfully, there are a lot of products out there that are more natural and healthy. But you do need to do your research when you are selecting new products to use.

One tool that is incredibly helpful is the Skip Deep® database by the Environmental Working Group. If there is a product you are thinking of using, you can input its name and see if it is in the database. If it is, you can view a numerical score for the product as a whole. 1 is the best and 10 is the worst.
Clicking on the product will call up a breakdown of the ingredients with numerical scores for each of them and specific health concerns listed. That way, you will have a pretty good idea of whether or not the product is one you will feel comfortable using.
Going forward, you can also pair healthy natural shampoos, conditioners and hair oils with a diet rich in vitamins and other nutrients that nourish your hair, skin, and nails.
