Ever wonder what those little icons on your shampoo, skin care or makeup bottles mean? If you’ve never taken the time to understand the common beauty product label, you may just be surprised at what’s hiding inside.
While today’s shoppers are smarter and better informed about food packaging labels, many are still unaware of some of the basic symbols used in labeling cosmetics and beauty products. Knowing what these symbols mean is just as important for consumers as understanding similar packaging information on food in the grocery aisle.
All cosmetics and personal care products sold in the United States are required by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be labeled with ingredients, including botanicals and chemicals used in manufacturing. There are also universally recognizable symbols used for package labeling that provide more specific product contents and safety information. Symbols indicating a product’s expiration date, organic makeup or even whether a company adheres to strict animal cruelty-free standards appear on every health and beauty product you use.
It’s important to note that if a product advertised as “organic” doesn’t carry an expiration date, it’s likely not entirely organic. The FDA has distributed information about the term “organic” as it pertains to cosmetics, which is available for public view.
Making sure you know what’s inside of the product you’re considering, as well as having a basic understanding of label symbols and their meanings will help you make a more informed purchase. Here’s a short list of a few of the most common symbols on the market today; recognize any?
As we mentioned in our February newsletter, we’re celebrating the pregnancy of one of our stylists, Clair. She and her fiancé are expecting a baby boy in the coming months. This got us talking about pregnancy and its effects on hair and the scalp.
Many women look forward to the “glow” of pregnancy. During this exciting time, higher levels of hormones can cause many physiological changes – bright, shiny skin and fast growing, fuller hair. Increased estrogen in the body extends the growth phase of hair, resulting in reduced shedding and changes in texture which can make for seemingly fuller locks.
First, it is important to understand what Trichology is, in order to see how this study can help strengthen your existing hair and scalp and prevent against thin hair and hair loss in the future. Trichology is the study of the health of your hair and scalp. It is through this study that we are able to better determine the causes of hair fallout, hair breakage, and hair thinning as well as conditions with the scalp that can lead to both thin hair and hair loss.
All too often I meet men and women who are focusing on taking better care of their hair in order to have better quality hair or to maintain their hair for as long as possible. The missing link to this is that although taking care of your hair is very important it is of equal, if not of greater importance, to take care of your scalp.
“I have 20% hair loss due to hereditary. I am 65 years old and in good health. I have heard about laser treatment, Can you tell me the success rate or, would you recommend a different treatment?” ~Brenda M.
Thank you for your question, Brenda! Hereditary hair loss is one of the major causes of hair loss in healthy women. Much like you, many women are looking for a solution for their hair thinning or hair loss. The first thing to keep in mind is that there is no “magic pill.” No matter what the product, service or specialist tells you the only way to grow hair back is if there is a healthy hair follicle beneath the scalp. Once the follicle is gone, it is unfortunately not coming back.
I often ask my guest this question, ” If you looked in the mirror three months from now what will your hair loss look like then?” If you are noticing more than the normal shedding of 80-100 hairs per day then in three months there is a great likelihood that your hair loss will progress even further. The goal now is to make sure your scalp is in a healthy condition in order for hair to grow stronger, faster, thicker and be less inclined to fall. So when you look at yourself in the mirror three months from now your hair loss has not worsened, and your hair is thicker helping to give the appearance of even less hair loss.
