I know that most women with natural hair are aware of the “bad list” of product ingredients that we should stay away from. The bad list contains mineral oil, parabens and the list goes on. From what we hear and read online, we know that these substances can absorb into our bloodstreams. BUT, my problem is with the folks who obsess over ingredients in their hair products, but turn right around and stuff Big Macs and Ball Park franks down their throats on a regular basis. I think some people really have their priorities mixed up. Granted large amounts of these “bad list” ingredients may cause some type of effect, but I think we should be more concerned about what we put INSIDE of our bodies. Everyone wants beautiful hair, but I think that involves more than just hair products. That’s what really counts. If you put good in, good will come out.

Weigh in ladies!
