Vitamin e oil for hair restores it and gives it a strong conditioning. The damage that UV rays do to the body can also be done to the hair. This damage can be extensive it directly affects the hair follicles.
Not only does a UV ray harm the hair but mistreating it does as well. When hair is constantly rubbed dry, blown dry, or ironed and curled as well as being brushed and pulled the follicles receive damage.
Vitamin e oil helps prevent that by coating the scarred areas where the follicles have been damaged and giving them healing them with its antioxidant properties.

Many people find it hard to believe that Sodium Lauryl Sulphate started its life as an industrial degreasant and a garage floor cleaner. After all, why would a chemical be in our cosmetics if it was originally used to clean a garage floor? It makes no sense at all yet it is completely true. This means that when it is applied to the skin, it has the effect of stripping it of its natural oils. It also erodes away the skin and irritates it, leaving it pitted and rough.
In some cases Sodium Laurel Sulphate can be quite dangerous . Due to the fact that Sodium Lauryl Sulphate has a low molecular weight, it means that it is easily absorbed into the body. It can then cause a build up in the heart, brain and liver, and due to that problems can occur. Whilst it does take a fair amount of Sodium Lauryl Sulphate to do that, it can still occur after frequent exposure to chemicals which contain the ingredient.
Another effect it has on the body includes the fact that it can cause dry, flaky skin. Finally, a scary fact that not many women realize, is that Sodium Lauryl Sulphate is in fact used in laboratories across the world, as a deliberate skin irritant. They use it to irritate the skin so that they can test products out on it. So, you have to question why a chemical that is used to actually irritate the skin is actually used in hundreds of cosmetics!
Unfortunately it is not always easy to avoid the chemical as not all companies list it under the name Sodium Lauryl Sulphate. The only way you can truly avoid it is by buying products you believe in.
