If you use too much, your hair can get greasy and stuff err I think...
Hair gels are made of water. This is what gives it its viscous nature. Gels have other ingredients in them such as polymers, plasticizers and wax. Most also contain parabens and parabens have been shown to be dangerous to the body.
The option is to use natural herbal hair gels. Such products can be found which are 100% natural and contain ingredients like Aloe Vera and hibiscus extracts. These extracts will not only hold up your hair for any hairstyle. They will also nurture and promote hair growth.
I recommend using natural herbal hair gels which are 100% natural and does contain both hibiscus and Aloe Vera is Mira herbal gel.
Mira hair gel contains hibiscus which has been shown to boost the anagen phase of hair growth by 80% and Aloe Vera which also helps grow longer, thicker hair.
Using anything on a daily basis that coats your hair will ultimately damage it to some extent. It's like women who wear mascara on a daily basis end up having very fine, breakable lashes by the time they reach their middle ages.
Blow drying daily is also bad for the hair.
Since it's the summertime, try a more natural look with leave-in conditioner. give your hair a summer vacation. :-)
yes there are negatives, but I'm not sure if it would cause hair loss...it leads to build up on your scalp that can turn into zits and cysts. Make sure to keep it off of your scalp and to massage your scalp thouroughly when you shampoo. The sampoo isn't what helps, its really the stimulating and exfoliation of your scalp.
if you don't wash it out at nice yes. my friends brother whos now out of collage used hair gel everyday after showering in the morning and then slept with it in. it clogged up the follicles and he started loosing his hair. he went to a dermatologist and hairgel was the cause...his scalp was cleared up though and is growing back normal.
When I was younger (teens) I used to have really oily hair and hated it. Washed it 2 times a day and it didn't chane. One day a hairdresser recommened I stop using hair products period. Shampoo, conditioner, the works. For the first week or so it was horrible. But then it sort of balanced out. That was 15 years ago. I use nothing in my hair except water. It's not oily or dry or smelly or flakey (scalp). I'm firmly of the opinion you body knows best and all those chemicals can't help, which sounds a bit like hippy talk, but I really did see a massive change.
