paraben free products for natural hair

Parabens are compounds that are used in many hair and beauty products in order to preserve them. Studies have also found parabens present in cancerous breast tumors, however research has not found evidence that the parabens in hair products are linked to the parabens in breast tumors. As consumers grow more conscious about the products that they place on their hair and skin, retailers and manufacturers alike are offering paraben-free products for the paraben-conscious customers. Paraben has not been found to have adverse effects on hair either, yet many hair products are sporting "paraben free" on their packaging these days. If you are concerned about parabens and would like to eliminate them from your hair routine, check this out!
