Side Effects of Hairspray, Mousse, Gel and Synthetic Styling Products

Some of the most damaging hair products on the market today are styling products.  These products contain many toxic ingredients including butane, ether, and polymers.  Switching to 100% natural styling products is often one of the last steps in people’s lives to becoming chemical free, when it should really be the first.

Some of the ingredients in mousses, gels, and hairsprays are also used in other products such as:

  • Plastics
  • Lubricants for engines
  • Engine degreasers
  • Insect repellant
  • Refrigeration
  • Propellant
  • Emulsifiers
  • Flammable gas
  • Fuel gas
  • Shellac and other paints
  • Furniture finishers

What’s concerning about these ingredients is that they can be inhaled and they can also enter through your skin into your bloodstream.  The ingredients get into your bloodstream through your hair follicles, sweat glands, and sebaceous glands.  Some of these toxins can even increase your skins absorption by up to 230 times its original absorption rate.

There are many side effects of these chemicals and we have comprised a list of some of these side effects:

  • Hair loss and hair thinning
  • Irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and skin
  • Dry hair and skin
  • Damage to organs including kidneys and lungs
  • Pneumonia
  • Irritation of the mucous membranes
  • Accumulation of toxins in organs and tissues, including the brain
  • Destroyed hair shafts
  • Carcinogenic ingredients
  • Skin damage
  • Hives and allergic reactions
  • Eczema
  • Hair breakage
  • Asphyxiation
  • Blackheads and other skin impurities
  • If ingested, depletion of vital nutrients in the body

The shocking truth about these products is that even hair preparation labeled as “natural” contain multitudes of harmful chemicals. There are no labeling laws governing the disclosure of chemicals in cosmetics. And the ingredients that manufacturers do list are often disguised by names that the typical consumer would be hard pressed to identify.
