How Natural Shampoo Can Help You Improve Your Health

Buying shampoo isn't normally something we really put much thought into, but what if the shampoo you are buying is affecting your health? It has been proven that toxic chemicals that are found in everyday supermarket shampoos can be a factor in why you are suffering from bad health. Having been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia I know first hand what toxic chemicals can do to your body. And by removing these toxic chemicals you can improve your health immensely.

What Toxins Are in Shampoo?

Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulphate (SLS/SLES)

This is a surfactant, detergent and emulsifier. The toxic chemical has been linked to several chemical reactions within the body, these are;

  • Irritation to the skin and eyes
  • Toxic chemicals getting into the organs
  • Toxic chemicals getting into the reproductive organs
  • Changes in cell structure
  • Cancer

Propylene Glycol

This chemical is found in engine coolants and antifreeze, rubber cleaners, paint, adhesives, enamels and varnishes. which causes;

  • Skin irritants
  • Liver abnormalities
  • kidney damage


Which are used as preservatives, have strong links to cancer. They are specifically linked to breast cancer as tests taken from women with breast cancer showed that every sample taken had Parabens within the cell makeup.

What Can You Use Instead?

You can source all natural shampoo from a reputable seller or you can make it yourself from fresh, natural ingredients you will probably have laying around in your store cupboard. There are thousands of recipes online for all sorts of cosmetics including shampoo. Pick one that suits your budget and make a small batch to try, if you like how it leaves your hair you can continue to make enough for a few weeks.

Make the change, your body will love you for it. And you will feel so much better. Don't just stop at shampoo, try to work your way through all your skincare and cosmetics to swap the toxic filled products with natural ones.

Look for sulphate free shampoos for all hair types.
