Ingredients You Should Avoid In Your Haircare Products

By Kaitlynn Boot, Glam.com December 20, 2022

According to the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics (CSC), many personal care products list “fragrance” on their ingredients list but fail to disclose exactly what makes up said fragrance. You might not think there is anything wrong with using a shampoo that smells fruity or perfumed. After all, it makes you smell nice and gets your hair clean, which is the whole point. However, synthetic fragrances are often made up of proprietary blends with thousands of ingredients, some of which potentially have serious health effects.
