INGREDIENTS TO AVOID

At this point, most of us have heard of the few basic ingredients that we shouldn’t put or use on our hair and bodies and I’m sure once you’ve read the title, three immediately  rang off in your head. The reason for this “hyper-sensitivity” is due to the scalps ability to  absorbs nutrients (as well as harmful chemicals, ugh!) when products are placed on it.

Have you ever used a product, it worked well, then all of a sudden, it didn't work the same or your hair became more brittle, dry... weak? When products don't contain quality, effective ingredients, they can in the long run, cause harm to your hair and even body. Just like the scalp, the body is also porous. It is very important to be particular about what should be put on ours bodies as well. Some of these ingredients can cause respiratory issues, headaches, asthma, allergic reactions, cancer, etc. Thats why LaJAshley has created an array of products that are safe and excellent for both hair and scalp, which won't cause adverse issues with your body.
