80% of Black Haircare Products cause cancer?

80% of Black Haircare Products cause cancer?

 

Hi Guys,

I was inspired to film some facts surrounding the fact the recent headline that detailed: 80% of the haircare products marketed to black women cause cancer?  If you live in the UK, you may have seen the BBC1 news report early in May, that highlighted the scary truth about haircare products created for black women, men and children!

As root2tip, are conscious manufacturers, we are committed to making clean products that love your hair and improve hair health, as opposed to mass produced cosmetics filled with synthetic chemicals, known to cause endocrine disruptions in the body.

You may be using products right now, that contain ingredients such as ‘Parabens, Pthalates, Siloxanes, BHT, MIT and more!  Is the danger really that bad?? That is a personal choice you have to make for yourself. However, as soon as I imagine a hair product sinking into my bloodstream and interfering with the way my hormones work in my body, or even worse my children, I am running for the hills!

I created Root2tip for my daughter years ago as I could find nothing to maintain her hair that was chemical free!! I recall seeing a product called Baby Don’t Bald!' in my local Paks in 2011, I could not believe this product made for babies, contained PLACENTA!! I decided to research this further and uncovered a report that detailed, hormones in haircare products may well start early puberty in your little girl!!

STOP AND THINK!

As we care for our children’s hair we need to research what the ingredients are. At Root2tip we have a children haircare range, we are working on making even more natural for you.

Our products are 95-100% natural and are designed to improve the health of your hair. Each product we have created has been formulated by myself, in my kitchen. I am committed to clean beauty products, we source our palm fruit from sustainable sources, we stay away from parabens, silicones, phthalates and other known toxins, as we believe what you put in your hair, should be great for your skin also! I shudder at the thought of massaging ignorantly, toxin laid products into my scalp!

Definitely repurchasing!

Extremely good product, moisturises very well and isn't dry the next day like some products. Also a little goes a very long way and so it is fairly priced. I can see and feel it working with my natural hair texture, cleared out over 20 products and replaced with this one. It has good hold so is good for styling aswell

Amazing!!

I am so impressed with this product it doesn't leave behind any build up of product residue in my child's hair like other products. It de-tangles very well, has a non toxic non overpowering scent and I love the fact that it's natural. I've ordered two bottles so far and disposed of the other products I was using. After educating myself about edc's in black hair products switching ti this this was a no brainer and I can actually visually see that the product works along with my child's hair which is lighter and not so greasy. The product was shipped so quickly after ordering and the customer service has been outstanding. Thank you so much for all your hard work producing this product that has been designed with black hair health in mind. I've been recommending this product to my friends

Best detangler I have found

Such an effective detangler that brings my daughters girls back to life. Lightweight and not sticky like other products I have tried

Amazing keeps my hair so hydrated and curls in place

This is the best spray leave in I've ever used. Sal kindly gifted me one to try and I've bought 2 more since. Even my sister bought one. It really works well in our hair. I have long tailbone length thick 4a 3c hair and this light weight product is amazing. Along with the quench cream. Perfect formula. I'd love to one day see Root2tip on the store shelves!

LOVE LOVE LOVE!

I first came across this product in a glossy box a few years back and fell in love with it, so I had to come and get the full size. It makes my hair feel soooo soft, completely moistures it and is very easy to use. The spray nozzle is great and distributes a lot of product. Definitely a staple for my hair.
