By now, this one should be a no-brainer. Sadly there are many salons still out their using keratin products containing dangerous amounts of formaldehyde. Even worse, many salon brands claim to be formaldehyde free by re-formulating their keratin so that the formaldehyde is not released until you begin to blow dry and flat-iron the hair, you know, the point where you're breathing in all the fumes. It may not seem harmful now, but Formaldehyde fumes over time cause breathing problems and can even lead to the C word. Keep it classy at your salon and smooth out your client's frizz with a Olez Advanced Keratin Smoothing System.
Sulfates (Sodium Laureth)
Sodium Laureth or sulfates is a common lathering additive used in most shampoos. While sometimes a treatment may require a harsher shampoo to open the hair up and prepare it for absorption, a cleansing shampoo should never have sulfates. Sulfates dry and damage the hair and also strip the client's color right out of the cuticle. Stylists who want their clients to have healthy hair and lasting color should boot these shampoos right out of their salons immediately.
ParabensParabens are a preservative commonly used in cosmetics products. It has taken a lot of heat lately, mainly because it mimics estrogen in the body, which can interrupt the endocrine system. There have been other studies linking it to certain cancers. Obviously you don't want to be doing your self or your client any harm for the sake of a cheap, and easy to replace preservative. Make a switch to a paraben free hair care line for your salon.
