Pros

  1. Some synthetic hair care products can be specifically formulated to target and manage hair problems that can result from bleaching or constant hair-coloring, making them a savior for significantly damaged hair.
  2. Most chemical-based hair products offer a short term solution to problems such as dryness and breakage, helping in the relief and management of these symptoms.   The results however are short term and do not address underlying issues.   Chemical based products may even cause further damage.
  3. Synthetic hair products are also often designed to aid in preventing heat damage which is caused by frequent use of hair straighteners or hairdryers.

Cons

  1. Isopropyl alcohol is found in a large range of hair products, particularly in hair colour rinses. It is a denaturant, meaning it changes the natural qualities of your hair, and inhalation of the vapour can actually cause headaches, nausea, dizziness and in some instances, vomiting.  The long term health impacts are not known but are generally considered to be very concerning
  2. Colours, preservatives, stabilizers, fragrances, and thickeners are found in many products targeted to scalp care to prolong the shelf life of the product. These may be absorbed into the skin and can cause substantial irritation for sensitive types.   Again, the long term health impacts are not known but are generally considered to be very concerning
  3. For relatively natural hair that has not been exposed to consistent coloring, synthetic products may cause more harm than good, and in some instances have led to toxicity in the nervous system and even cancer.
