Shopping for fragrance free hair products
Fragrance is typically added to beauty products to increase their appeal or to mask the distinctive and sometimes unpleasant smell of their ingredients. That is not to say the fragrance free beauty products lack beneficial ingredients; they are just masked to ensure the scent does not trigger allergic reactions or irritate the senses. If someone in your family is allergic to those ingredients or scented products in general, they will thank you if you use fragrance free products at home.
When you are shopping for fragrance free beauty products, it would be a good idea to read the fine print or label before purchasing. If a product’s label says it is ‘fragrant free’ that means it does not have any chemical scents. On the other hand, if it contains terms such as ‘parfum’ or ‘perfume’ anywhere, then it means it is scented.
Beware of ‘unscented’ products as well; these are not always fragrance free and they may contain an artificial masking fragrance to cover up the scent of the ingredients. Even products that have ‘free and clear’ or ‘non toxic’ labels may be artificially scented. A scentless shampoo that is ‘hypoallergenic’ can also contain harmful chemicals such as sodium lauryl sulfate which can make sensitive skin break out.
If you have dry, damaged or frizzy hair then you need a conditioner that can nourish and moisturize it at the same time. If your skin is sensitive or you are allergic to a number of things, then the fragrance free variety will ensure you remain free of rashes and breakouts.
