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!

Amazing product smells great light and not too greasy would definitely use again 😁👍

Review

Products arrived in a timely fashion and well packaged.
The actual product itself is great - my son is mixed heritage with very coarse coils. The honey rain juice detangler and heavens hair milk are both light and not sticky and moistures my sons hair with no excess residue.
The packaging of the products isn’t great - the detangler bottle broke when trying to open it and I had to tip the product into a spray bottle to use it and prevent spillage.
The heavenly milk bottle was only filled up three quarters of the way - product had not been filled to the top which is a real shame. I like to support small independent businesses but feel as customers we should be supported by the business to do that. Maybe I was just unlucky with my order and it wouldn’t stop me ordering again 😁.
I am unable to review the shampoo and conditioner as we haven’t tried them yet. Shampoo does smell amazing on first sniff!

Fir some reason I can’t edit the stars - I would rate this as 3-4 due to packaging issues.

Product quality

Second time ordering from here and I have noticed the packaging has changed with the hair milk. Well mine came with a flat top lid that you press on one side to open. Prior to that I noticed that the milk is a much more runny consistency than before which I am not not pleased with. Also the rain juice when sprayed in my daughters hair. It makes her hair very soapy and bubbly which I cannot understand and also not very happy with. The oil I need to give more time. But based on my experience Im not keen on ordering in a rush...

best de-tangler

Is hands down the best de-tangler we have used for our daughter.

Amazing

Just started using this in in my daughters hair and it is amazing. It’s not heavy very light and keeps the hair smelling great. Her scalp is not dry. Works wonders I will be buying again.
