Silicone-free hair care has recently emerged to meet a specific demand: to maintain and wash the hair gently, without the disadvantages of products with silicone.
But where does the silicone come from?
Since its discovery in the 1940s, this polymer derived from silica, i.e. sand, has become widely used in consumer products.
It can be found in all kinds of products, from kitchen utensils to DIY products and even cosmetics.
From the 1980s onwards, brands began to include it in their hair careproducts.
The original purpose of silicones was to help detangle the hair and make it shine.
The aim of making hair smooth and shiny has therefore taken precedence over the negative effects of silicones.
Indeed, their detergent effect is powerful, but surely too much for the health of the hair...
First of all, silicones only provide a surface effect.
Indeed, the fiber hair is not cared for in depth, it simply obtains a short-lived shiny appearance.
Instead, it is gradually suffocated. Silicones asphyxiate the hair and, as they are applied, dry it out. Moreover, silicones pollute and are not very biodegradable.
In the long term, silicones settle on the hair, making nourishing treatments less effective.
Similarly, the colorings takes less well on hair that has been subjected to the effects of silicones.
The hair is dried out and becomes hard to style.
Health professionals believe that silicone-containing hair care products should be replaced with a silicone-free product.
It will thus eliminate all presence of these molecules after one month. This is why it is advisable to avoid products with silicones.
