What Ingredients are Bad for Hair Extensions?

Bad ingredients could slowly thin the hair and gradually fall out, leaving bald patches or unwanted rashes on the scalp. Furthermore, this would be very unhealthy for hair growth, stunting the process and depleting the chances of gaining your desired hair. 

Cheap hair products may be responsible for creating problems like this due to the bad quality of ingredients used in the product. 


Paraben is mostly discovered in shampoo and conditioner; this is a preservative that is used to prolong life. Those are usually classified, among many others, as benzylparaben, ethylparaben, and propylparaben.

The reality is that parabens are highly dangerous to your safety, even though it's used regularly by many people. Possible issues include skin irritation, neurotoxicity and even issues with reproduction. Worse still, parabens may also be associated with an increased risk of cancer, especially breast cancer.


Hair Shampoos obtain sulfates to give their foamy lather, but this is not an ideal ingredient to have within your hair. Not only can these chemicals dry the hair and hair extensions, but they can also weaken your immune system. These can also cause swelling, itching, and rashes in the skin. 

The best solution would be to use sulfate free hair products to wash the hair and add a virbrant healthy look. 


From your beauty hair products to your skin care products, alcohol is everywhere. This is used by manufacturers for its evaporative properties, while there's nothing wrong with using alcohol in general, there are certain alcohols you should stay away from. 

Alcohols to avoid: 

  • SD
  • Ethanol
  • Isopropyl 
  • Propanol
  • Propyl
  • Ethyl Alcohol 

These types of alcohol will destroy helpful oils that assists in growing healthy hair, leaving behind dry and brittle strands. 

Safe Alcohols: 

  • Cetyl 
  • Stearyl
  • Oleyl Alcohol 

These are fatty alcohols discovered in hair products to produce a thick and creamy consistency. 


In addition to many others, dimethicone is a type of silicone commonly used in hair products such as hair shampoos, conditioners, and serums.

Manufacturers really like to use dimethicone because it's affordable, and it can easily synthetically smooth and soften hair. 

However, it produces a silicone layer that is so dense, that it cannot easily penetrate water and other nutrients. Over time this leads to dehydrated, undernourished hair.

Mineral Oil

Mineral Oil is made from petroleum by-product, Mineral oil is used to moisturized the hair more. 

Mineral oil can also severely suffocate your hair, this happens because of the dense layer that is produced over the hair cuticles. This ultimately gives you acne, sebum excesses and irritated skin. 

Besides that, mineral oil is also incredibly difficult to wash out of your hair even if you use hair shampoo. You would have to wash several times practically just to remove the excess mineral oil trapped in your hair.
