If you are a victim of hair loss, you may have tried everything to cure your condition. You may have experimented with hair transplants, various heavy-duty medications, or over-the-counter gels, all in vain. Are you thinking of a new hair cream? Know the risks first.
Recent studies have suggested a link between certain chemicals in hair growth products and different forms of cancer. Even small amounts of some creams can be harmful.
If you want to avoid the risk of cancer, there are a few chemicals that you can look for specifically. These ingredients listed below are frequently used in creams and are currently investigated as causes of cancer:
Parabens – Many paraben-containing hair products link to breast cancer. Always look for “paraben-free” hair growth creams.
Formaldehyde – Formaldehyde can lead to asthma, balding, and lung cancer. Not only can this cause asthma-like symptoms, but research suggests that it may cause premature balding and lung cancer if inhaled or applied in large doses.
Triclosan – Triclosan in hair products may be carcinogenic. Steer clear of triclosan in hair products, deodorants, and toothpaste.
