The petroleum products used in these accessories can cause hair to weaken due to their tendency to create a barrier around the hair shaft, trapping heat and potentially leading to breakage.
You might notice increased dryness and brittleness, as these products can strip the hair of its natural oils. This process can lead to a cycle of damage where hair becomes more susceptible to splitting and snapping. The harsh chemicals found in the production of these accessories may cause scalp irritation and damage hair growth.
Opting for French Handmade accessories made from natural, sustainable materials can significantly elimiate the risk of hair damage. These accessories are handmade using cellulose acetate which is a natural fibre that is biodegradable. This approach not only promotes healthier hair but also benefits the environment.
What Are Petroleum Hair Accessories?
Petroleum hair accessories are products made from compounds derived from crude oil. These accessories often contain various chemicals that can potentially harm hair.
The use of petroleum-based materials in hair accessories is quite common due to their low production costs and versatility. Our hair accessories are made in France, handmade by our manufacturer that we have been working with for over 10 years. We pride ourselves on our damage-free hair accessories that are good for your hair and the environment.
The Impact On Human Hair
Petroleum-based hair accessories can have detrimental effects on human hair, including chemical interactions and long-term structural damage, which may risk scalp health. The material we use to craft our French Handmade accessories is also hypoallergenic meaning they are very skin sensitive and do not cause scalp irritation.
Petroleum hair accessories often contain substances like phthalates and formaldehyde, which, when in contact with hair, can lead to chemical reactions. These substances can strip hair of its natural oils, leading to dryness and breakage. The interaction between these chemicals and hair protein may result in weakened strands which leads to split ends and frizz.
Benefits of Switching to Healthier, Handmade Options
Reduced Breakage: Accessories made from natural materials are less likely to snag or pull hair, reducing breakage.
Scalp Health: Materials such as cellulose acetate are gentler on the scalp, reducing the risk of irritation.
