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!

Original Honey Rain Juice Detangler
Kimberley (Harlesden, GB)
This is essential for your hair care!

I usually wait to see the overall results before submitting a review. After using this product for over a year and previously trying other brands, I can say that it is the best by far. It detangles and provides moisture to my hair. I have seen the growth and retention since it was recommended. Certainly a must have!

Hydrating!

No grease !! I tried the Quench Anti Breakage Cream my hair is super hydrated and soft. Definitely will buy again as this moisturises my hair superbly. Lovely product.

Simply the best!!!!

It's not very often that I'm impressed by someone. I saw Sal online talking about her hair products. Her passion for all things hair coupled with her inspiration from our Creator further impressed me. I tried the Grow It Long Scalp Serum and the Super Growth Root Energiser [which I've only used once]. I actually cannot believe the transformation my hair has achieved! I had lots and lots of hair loss and bald patches and the combination of these products has improved my hair so much, I'm shocked at the results!!! I have posted pictures here so you can see the results for yourself. The first [CURRENT] picture was taken on the 10th June 2021 and a second [BEFORE] picture was taken the 20th May 2021 , both on the same side of my head. Sal you are such an inspirational person with a beautiful spirit. I thank you for all you have done to improve our hair and all you continue to do for the Black Family.

The Back2School Afro-curly kids Moisture Kit

Works wonders

I brought this for my 2 year old who has quite thick coily hair. The honey rain detangles his hair so quickly I can literally run my fingers through it. The heaven milk, is nice Silky and moisturising the sun light cream is great on the ends of his hair to lock everything in

Ever so moisturising

Absolutely love this! I brought this for my daughter but decided to use some in my hair the other day and I couldn’t believe how moisturising it was and the moisture last for a few days, my hair is usually quite dry. Will definitely purchase again
