mousse abuse: getting educated to the dangers of styling aids

I have been in the hair care business for over thirty-seven years and have seen everything that could possibly go wrong with a head of hair. Without question, the most damaging commercial hair styling preparations on the market today are gels, mousses and sprays. They are now all over, even in your local health food stores.

It is almost guaranteed that with continued use, these products will result in hair loss. I am astounded when I see people who are only in their late teens and early twenties who are trying to emulate "the look." By that I mean, styling their hair with gels and mousses in the latest fashion as worn by music and movie stars. Or being seduced by the newest advertising ploy created by Madison Avenue in order to sell dangerous products. "The look" will eventually cost its wearer their hair.

The chemicals in these products are entirely too powerful to be beneficial for healthy hair. In order to create the severe look, they are loaded with polymers, benzaldehyde and a-terpineol, to name only a few toxic compounds. Polymer is another name for "plastic." Putting it on the hair, in the form of hair spray, for example, is no better than applying a coat of paint. Benzaldehyde is a narcotic and used as a local anesthetic. It is an irritant to the ear, nose, throat and skin and may cause kidney damage.

A-terpineol is highly irritating to the mucous membranes. Inhaled into the lungs and it can cause pneumonia or even fatal edema. When these compounds-and the scores more like them that are found in gels, mousses and sprays-are applied to the hair, they do more than begin damaging the individual hair follicles.

Our skin is not a uniform barrier. Hair follicles, sweat and sebaceous glands are minute holes in the derma layer. Investigations by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee found that structural factors of the skin influence what chemicals may be absorbed into our bodies. The scalp has anywhere from 40,000 to 80,000 hair follicles and is an excellent medium for chemical absorption. These toxic compounds that enter the body through the scalp and skin and can accumulate over time is tissue and organs, such as the brain, causing chronically damaging effects.

The "mousse abuse" that is the current vogue is no better than putting paint on one's hair. Hair spray is comprised of shellac, which is the primary ingredient in compounds for finishing furniture. I have worked as a renowned cut and color man on literally tens of thousands of clients and I am in shock when I see the damage mousses and gels are doing to beautiful, healthy hair.

Granted, I have the advantage of a trained eye, but the number of very young and old film, television and recording stars who are destroying their hair with these powerful chemicals is overwhelming. Simple look at any model, film star or magazine ad and you will clearly see Hair Loss at an all time high. Advertisements on television and in popular magazines feature models right up to the biggest stars that are showing the public a look that is deadly to the hair. Not only are gels, mousses and sprays destroying the hair shaft and risking scalp and skin damage, but the long-term effects of these chemicals have been associated with organ damage and cancer due to absorption by the skin.

The shocking truth about these products is that even hair preparation labeled as "natural" contain multitudes of harmful chemicals. There are no labeling laws governing the disclosure of chemicals in cosmetics. And what ingredients that manufacturers do list are often disguised by names that the typical consumer would be hard pressed to identify.

Go into any health food store and check out the ingredients on the products sold there. If you cannot pronounce an ingredient it is guaranteed to be a chemical. At right is a partial list of toxic ingredients found on products randomly selected that are sold in one major health store.

But it may be seriously damaging when it reacts to nitrate compounds, which are impurities that are often found in many hair preparations and cosmetics. When isopropyl myristate interacts with nitrates, the nitrate absorption factor in the skin in increased by up to 230 times. Nitrates have been linked to cancer.

Anthony Morrocco has, for over 40 years, carefully studied and practiced holistic hair care. His quest to find a naturally based treatment for hair and scalp problems began with his apprenticeship at world famous Kenneth's, a posh New York salon, where his clients included Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Mrs. Vincent Astor, Mia Farrow, Lauren Bacall, Joan Rivers, Faye Dunaway, Liza Minelli, and numerous other celebrities.

For years, Anthony watched as the rich and famous walked into Kenneth's with hair care problems and left with the same problems, only covered up with styles, perms, blow drying, gels, mousses, bleaches and chemicals. Anthony discovered that, regardless of the money spent on traditional hair care, the problems just didn't go away. This realization inspired Anthony to create a new system of hair and scalp treatment that would have successful, long term results.
