Ok this all started because I was doing a friend’s hair and she had to read all the ingredients because she has allergies to things. She was reading away and telling me I can’t use this and I can’t use that. She then came across one of my conditioners and said “Why are you using PIG URINE on your hair!!??” I’m like what the heck? She pointed out to me that Diazolidinyl Urea is from animal urine. So I took to the computer to read up on this matter because I couldn’t believe it. I found that even if they say oh it is synthetic now, it still at some point came from some kind of urine.
I went through all of the products I had and found out that it was the only one. I was so so happy because I really didn’t want to throw away all my money lol.
Ok, now we will only find this in the hair products, right? No, more reading led to me finding out that it is in your lotions, deodorants, soaps, all kinds of makeup. See more of a reason to use only natural products!!!!!
This thing was just blowing my mind. I can not believe at this day and time they are still using these harmful ingredients in our products trying to kill us over money.
These are some of the websites I got my information from:
(http:/householdproducts.nlm.nih.gov) What should you look for and avoid?*
Avoid products that list any of the following names in the ingredients, MSDS or package insert
• Diazolidinyl urea
• N,N’-Bis(hydroxymethyl) urea
• Urea, N-(1,3-bis(hydroxymethyl)-2,
• Germall II
• Tetramethylolhydantoin urea
Because Diazolidinyl urea is a formaldehyde releaser, you may also react to other formaldehyde-releasing
substances such as Imidazolidinyl urea, Formaldehyde, Bronopol, Quaternium 15 and Dimethyl dimethyl
I try my best to keep you up to date as information comes to me.
Ladies as I always say, love your hair and it will love you back.
As always, thanks for reading, peace and love!!!!!
