Top five shampoo chemicals to avoid

Hi everyone, been a long time since I blogged. But I am back again and still as passionate as ever to continue spreading the word =)

So this is going to be short and useful (hopefully). Top five shampoo chemicals to avoid! I will merely state the chemicals and the possible side effects.

Methylisothiazoline (MIT) - Could cause neurological damage, onset of Alzheimers. I have found this chemicals in brands like, Head & Shoulders Pantene and Clairol.

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) - This stuff makes your shampoo/soap foam up. However, it is known to be carcinogenic, could also cause skin irritations and allergy

Parabens (chemical preservative) - Could cause increased oestrogen levels 

Phthalates (perfume) - May be related to reproductive and hormonal problems

Formaldehyde -  Weirdly enough this chemical has been used for preserving the deceased before burial. So yes they use that stuff in a lot of shampoo's which usually causes allergic reaction and it may cause damage to the nervous system. Other names they use for this chemicals are; doazolidinyl urea, imidazolidinyl urea, and quarternium-15.

So yea just cut this shit out of your life, by trying not to apply it directly to your skin ( I am aware of the fact that we must drink a lot of this stuff from tap water, so try to filter your water before drinking). And keep an eye out for these five chemicals (these seem to be the most harmful ones) 

Methylisothiazoline (MIT)
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)
Parabens (chemical preservative)
Phthalates (perfume)
