Yesterday I did a bunch of research about the ingredients in body products, and learned that many of them are quite toxic. Well today I examined the shampoo and conditioner that I’m currently using, and was quite disappointed.
For a long time I used Pantene Pro-V for Women of Color (I have really curly hair). Well fairly recently I switched to L’Oreal EverPure Sulfate-Free Color Care System, because I saw on the bottle that it has no sulfates, no harsh salts, it’s an anti-fade formula (I have my hair colored), and that it contains natural botanicals. Sounds good, right?
Wrong! It also contains several ingredients that are on the naughty list – propylene glycol, parabens, and fragrance. Oink. I’m scared to read the ingredient lists on all my other body products…
