We all want that Instagram worthy, thick, luscious hair. We spend hours in the bathroom treating and styling our hair, with sometimes little to no result to show for it. However, achieving your dream hair is easier than you think. All it takes is a few simple tricks, some tender loving care, and good quality hair products. We explore what non-comedogenic and fragrance –free hair care products mean for your hair and why you should be using them.
What are Non-Comedogenic Products?
Non-comedogenic describes skincare and haircare products with formulations that will not block your pores or hair follicles and cause breakouts.
What are Fragrance-Free Products?
Fragrance-free products are formulated without natural or artificial fragrances, nor do they contain masking scents. Do not confuse them with unscented products. Unscented shampoos usually contain chemicals or other ingredients to mask odours.
What are the Benefits of Using These Types of Products?
Using non-comedogenic and fragrance-free haircare has many health benefits including:
- Reduces hair fall and shedding
- Repairs and thickens hair strands
- Promotes hair growth
- Reduces scalp inflammation
Consequences of Using Comedogenic and Fragrance Haircare Products
Using the wrong hair products can be detrimental for your hair and your health. Remember to always check the ingredients label and check if it says non-comedogenic and fragrance free to avoid irritation and discomfort. Below are common concerns that arise from using comedogenic and fragrance hair products:
1. Itchy scalp
Dandruff is usually the most common cause of an itchy scalp. When you see white flakes on your shoulders, you most likely have dandruff due to an oily scalp and excess sebum. Using comedogenic and fragrance products can be a key cause of dandruff and itchy scalp. In addition, stress, medication, and dry weather can exacerbate dandruff. If you think your hair products are causing dandruff or an itchy scalp, try switching your hair products to a non-comedogenic and fragrance-free product to alleviate discomfort. Neutriderm Anti-Dandruff shampoo is a non-comedogenic and fragrance-free shampoo that gently cleanses the scalp, removing excess sebum and dandruff flakes, leaving your hair and scalp clean and flake free.
2. Scalp irritation
If you feel a burning sensation immediately after using a shampoo, you likely have an allergy to the fragrances in the shampoo. According to doctors, chemical fragrances and surfactants for lather can irritate the scalp. Fragrance allergies cause dry, red patches around your ears or neck.
3. Breakouts around the hairline
Do you know that your hair care products can be the reason for your breakouts? These little pimples appear when you use products that clog your pores and don’t rinse them off. To avoid this, it is important to rinse well after washing and use non-comedogenic and fragrance-free products.
