    Hello All!!
    Just for your info, and please take note of the shampoo you use to wash your hair every night! Girls will definitely use more! Check the ingredients listed on your shampoo bottle, and see if they have this substance by the name of Sodium Laureth Sulfate, or simply SLS. This substance is found in most shampoos, and the manufactures use it because it produces a lot of foam and it is cheap. But the fact is that SLS is used to scrub garage floors, and it is very strong. lt is also proven that it can cause cancer in the long run, and this is no joke. I went home and checked my shampoo (Vidal Sassoon), it doesn't contain it: however,others such as Vo5, Palmolive, Paul Mitchell,
    the new Hemp shampoo, Pantene Pro-V etc.. contains this substance.So I called one company, and I told them their product contains a substance that will cause people to have cancer. They said "Yeah, we knew about it but there is nothing we can do about it because we need that substance to produce foam. By the way Colgate toothpaste also contains the same substance to produce the "bubbles". They said they are going to send me some information. Research has shown that in the 1980s, the chance of getting cancer is 1 out of 8000 and now, in the 1990s, the chances of getting cancer is 1 out of 3, which is very serious. So I hope that you will take this seriously and pass this on to all the people you know, and hopefully, we can stop "giving" ourselves the cancer virus.

    Regards,
    K.Sri

    Good information - I remember reading about SLS too. Since my hair was dropping like crazy, i googled to find out remedies and one of them that came up said to avoid SLS containing shampoos - but that ingredient is in a lot of shampoos! We all need to be careful of what we put in our bodies!

    Thanks for this article, KSri. From now on I had to look after that SLS thing when I buy any shampoo.
    Now only I came to know- why my bath tub and sink went sprakling for days when i used to clean it with the remnants of dandruff shampoo.:mrgreen:

    Hi,
    I use Raaga herbal powder, it frothes like shampoo and gets rid of oil completely. It makes hair a bit dry, but if you use a conditioner, it iwll be non issue.
