When a person is concerned about their hair or scalp hair, people tend to reach for the nearest thing on a shelf or something advertised by a celebrity without considering what the product is actually for?
There are many products which are considered “healthy for hair and scalps”, but, this is quite a vague term, with no particular value.
Products with many different nutrients or botanicals in them causes 2 problems:-
- The manufacturer only has a finite amount of space to add these nutrients into, so if a product has loads of ingredients, they will be there only in small quantity’s.
- Some vitamins/minerals are counter active when taken together (e.g.: Iron cancels out Zinc) so many of the nutrients may not even be absorbed properly.
- Shampoo/Conditioners with vitamins/mineral content for hair loss are a waste of time, your hair is a dead appendage and cannot absorb these nutrients and use them.
