Shampoo? No thanks.

Julia adds…
I haven’t used shampoo for a year and my hair is in better condition than before. I wash it in water, and command brush it. I use a natural conditioner to make it easier to comb through. You don’t need shampoo at all.

I don’t think you need washing powder either. The fact the the washing machine manufacturers recommend certain washing powders suggests that it’s the machine that needs cleaning with powders, not the clothes. I have tried washing with just water or magnets, and clothes come out fine. Especially if dried outside. But the machine needs cleaning after a while. Next project is to try using sodium carbonate as a clothes washer.

A salt bath with a few drops of essence, such as lavender is far nicer than those commercial bubble bath poisons.

Don’t just take my word for it. Consider what a prominent Senator said at a Senate Hearing on the FDA Reform on September 10, 1997…

“The Cosmetics Industry Has Borrowed a Page from the Playbook of the 
Tobacco Industry by Putting Profits Ahead of Public Health”

And while the bigwigs in the hair care industry don’t want you to know this, every time you put shampoo or conditioner into your hair, you may be putting yourself in harm’s way. Just take a look at your shampoo and conditioner the next time you shower and ask yourself…

“Does my Shampoo or Conditioner Contain Any of These 
5 Potentially Toxic Ingredients?”

Toxic Ingredient #1: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
Did you know the same ingredient which produces all that foam and lather when you shampoo your hair is also the ingredient used in car washes and garages as a degreasing agent?
It’s true. And not only does it act as a penetration enhancer (allowing other potentially toxic ingredients to slip into your bloodstream), but according to the Environmental Working Group’s “Skin Deep: Cosmetic Safety Reviews,” research studies on SLS have shown links to…
  • Irritation of skin and eyes
  • Organ toxicity
  • Development / reproductive toxicity
  • Neurotoxicity, endocrine disruption, ecotoxicological, and biochemical or cellular changes
  • Possible mutations and cancer
If you visit the SLS page on the Environmental Working Group’s (a non-profit public-interest research group known for making connections between chemical exposure and adverse health conditions) website, you will see a very long list of health concerns and associated research studies. In fact, you will also see their mention of nearly 16,000 studies in the PubMed science library (as well as their link to that list) about the toxicity of this chemical.
So look for it in your hair care products. It also goes by a number of different names including sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, ammonium laurel sulfate, sodium dodecylsulfate, sulfuric acid, sodium salt sulfuric acid, A12-00356, Akyposal SDS, Aquarex ME, and Aquarex methyl.
Toxic Ingredient #2: Dioxane
In the medical journal Cancer’s 2007 review of mammary carcinogens, dioxane was identified as one of the 216 chemicals which was linked to breast cancer in rodents.
Not that this is anything new. Its connection to carcinogens was first reported in 1965 and confirmed in 1978.
In fact, back in 1985, the FDA recognized these dangers, and requested that manufacturers voluntarily limit dioxane levels in cosmetics and personal-care products to 10 parts per million.
But it hasn’t happened.
In fact, Los Angeles Times staff writer, Marla Cone, in February 2007 reported that all eighteen personal care products for both adults and children which she had tested by an independent laboratory were contaminated with high levels of dioxane.
Toxic Ingredient #3: Diethanolamine or DEA
In a recent FDA report, approximately 42% of all cosmetics were contaminated with NDEA, with shampoos having the highest concentrations. DEA also readily reacts with nitrite preservatives and contaminants to create nitrosodiethanolamine (NDEA), a known and potent carcinogen.
This is a big problem because DEA seems to block absorption of the nutrient choline, which is vital to brain development. Pregnant women actually require extra choline so they can pass it onto their fetus.
An associate dean for research at the UNC School of Public Health mentioned that choline is necessary to help provide proper nutrients for a healthy baby; stating that, “At this point it is a caution. But it would probably be prudent to look at labels and try to limit exposure until we know more.”
Toxic Ingredient #4: MSG
You’ve been told to avoid MSG in your food, right? After all, many people experience symptoms like headaches, dizziness, and stomach discomfort after consuming MSG-containing products. And according to the FDA, MSG side effects include: numbness, burning sensations, tingling, facial pressure, headaches, nausea, drowsiness and weakness, among other problems.
But did you know MSG, short for monosodium glutamate, is also more than likely in your shampoo, often secretly hidden and referred to as amino acids, yeast extract, nayad, glutamic acid, or glutamates?
Toxic Ingredient #5: Propylene Glycol
This active ingredient is found in engine coolants and antifreeze, airplane de-icers, tire sealants, rubber cleaners, polyurethane cushions, paints, adhesives, enamels and varnishes, and in many products as a solvent or surfactant.
And guess what? Despite the fact the material safety data sheet warns users to avoid skin contact with propylene glycol as it is a strong skin irritant and can also cause liver abnormalities and kidney damage, it’s more than likely in your shampoo!
Okay, so now that you’ve read about these 5 potentially toxic ingredients, let me ask you two critical questions: If you knew of a food which contained all of these toxins…
  • Would you add it to your grocery basket on a week to week basis?
  • Would you feed it to your children?
Of course, you wouldn’t.
But it’s safe because your skin is protecting you, right? Wrong. The reality is your skin is often a carrier, not a barrier and…

Toxins in Your Shampoo and Conditioner May Be 
More Toxic Than Those in Your Food

toxic chemical in shampoo

You might think that because your skin is about one tenth of an inch thick, it protects your body from absorbing the many things you come into contact with.
But the truth is, when you consume toxins in foods, such as pesticides in fruit and vegetables, the enzymes in your saliva and stomach often break them down and flush them out of your body. Food also passes through your liver and kidneys. The toxins which make it through are detoxified to varying degrees by enzymes before they reach the remainder of your body.
However when toxins are absorbed through your skin, they bypass your liver and enter your bloodstream and tissues – with absolutely no protection whatsoever.
Think of it like this: when you put shampoo or conditioner into your hair, the twenty blood vessels, 650 sweat glands, and 1,000 nerve endings soak in the toxins.
And some studies suggest skin can sometimes absorb more than your digestive tract. According to evidence presented at 1978 Congressional hearings, the absorption of the carcinogen nitrosodiethanolamine (NDELA), which is commonly found in shampoo products, was shown to be more than 100 times greater when exposure came through your skin than via your mouth. What’s more…

A Hot Shower Opens Up Pores in Your Skin 
and May Make it Easier for Toxins To Enter Your Body

Here’s how it works: When you have a warm shower, your pores automatically open up, which may make it easier for sodium laurel sulfate… DEA… MSG… propylene glycol, and Ethylene Oxide to enter your blood stream.
And while you have been told about the damaging effects of pesticides and additives in food, the ugly truth about the damage shampoo and conditioner may do to your body has been hidden until now.

    You can get filters that you can attach to your shower hose.

    Seriously, when you are getting ready to go to ‘work’ i.e. pay your taxes to globalism but have just enough to live on, you digest so much toxins.

    Your cup of coffee/tea… sodium flouride
    The shower… sodium flouride
    Feeding the baby in the morning with the ‘baby formula’ …sodium flouride

    I have known about toxic ingredients in cosmetics for a few years now and I buy my shampoo and conditioner from a health food shop. I used to use the usual brands that promise soft, shiny hair and they never worked on my hair, after switching to a natural shampoo and conditioner called “Faith in Nature” I was so surprised how nice and soft and tangle free my hair was, something which until that point I had never experienced, it became the brand that I have consistently brought for the past 6 or 7 years. It says it is SLES free and instead contains ammonium laureth sulphate, I knew this sounded like sodium laureth sulphate but it said that it came from vegetable origin so I trusted the label and believed that it was safe.

    I have been experiencing thinning hair for years now since exam stress at school when I also started to notice white hairs growing too. I have not been too worried as my hair is originally very thick and curly and so I find less easier to manage, it was only yesterday I noticed that my hair in total is about as thick as a fountain pen (about three quarters less than I used to have) and I thought I need to detox from chemtrails more and all the vaccinations. I was researching a change of ingredient in the toothpaste I use called “kingfisher” (fluoride free of course) they used to have SLS but now it has sodium lauroyl sarcosinate, which leaves a stranger feeling in the mouth after brushing than SLS. I found out that this chemical is just as much to be avoided as SLS. I have been using this toothpaste because I am scared of getting a cavity and I feel it cleans my teeth well, I used to use “Colgate Total” with fluoride and triclosan which is said to be similar to agent orange, so I thought it was a big improvement. Today I have made my own toothpaste from a blend of castile soap, essential oils and water in a brown glass bottle and so far my teeth feel clean.

    Back to the hair, I discovered that ammonium laureth sulphate along with SLS is linked to hair loss which has shocked me, that I could be causing my own hair loss, I have learnt to be even more cautious as even natural shampoo or partially organic shampoo can contain undesirable chemicals. I am going to try and use my homemade liquid castile soap in my hair, or make homemade shampoo or buy purely organic shampoo or use hair soap which contains egg and doesn’t need conditioner. People who have stopped using ammonium laureth sulphate have noticed their hair growing thicker, so I am hoping I can also reverse the damage I have done to my hair follicles too.
