We may not be aware that we are unknowingly putting harmful chemicals on our hair thus resulting to general conditions such as migraine, nausea and skin rashes. The symptoms may be quickly attributed to stress but if you look closer to that hair product you’re using, you’ll be surprise to find the culprit.

Popularity does not equate to safety, some popular brands sold in the market are loaded with mildly toxic chemicals that may be harmful in prolonged use.

Novuhair, Nature’s answer to hair loss, gives you the lowdown on these chemicals to help you with your choices.

Myth: Shampoo must produce lots of lather in order to properly clean your hair.

Truth: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) is a compound that helps shampoo and other cleaning product in producing foam and bubbles. Though it may effectively remove hair build-up, it can also strip off essential oils that is needed to keep your hair healthy.

Myth: Parabens has an anti-bacterial compound benefits that outweighs the harm.

Truth: Parabens are basically used to prolong the shelf life of hair and cosmetic products mostly for its antibacterial purpose. Symptoms that are related to over exposure to parabens are Atopic Dermatitis and Rosacea. Further studies also show that use of products with parabens accelerate skin damage and aging related to sun exposure.

Myth: My hair smells terrific! I love the perfume scent on my hair product.

Truth: A nice whiff of perfume might not be harmful but the fragrance that is mixed in your hair product might have come from harmful substances from highly toxic ingredients which can lead to Allergic reactions and mood swings. That perfume is better off somewhere else.

Myth: Hair products that promise straightening and smoothening effect use non-toxic Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate as a natural preservative.

Truth: Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate is a substance used in making your hair soft and bouncy, although it is considered natural preservative, also releases formaldehyde which can lead to skin and eye irritations. Prolonged use may also affect your immune system.

Use of some of these chemicals combined may also result to hair loss and other hair problems, thus, it is important to be an informed consumer. A lot of new products have saturated the market hence, read the labels for fine prints before buying.

Women as Superheroes: Feminist Journeys in Philosophy of Myth and Popular Culture (late post)

Joseph Campbell was an American mythologist and writer who coined the term monomyth, which is another term for a hero’s journey. The hero’s journey comprises of three main parts: Departure, Initiation and Return. The Great Myth was taken from a male point of view. The story tellers and chroniclers are all males. The focus of the Great Myth is the Masculine Journey. To bring female heroes in, Campbell turned to fairytales. Here, Story tellers are women as told to children. However, the famous ones are still men. In contemporary story telling, there came the comic superheroes. “superheroes” were trademarked and co-owned by DC Comics and Marvel Comics. A superhero must have extraordinary powers, skills, and equipment, he must have a secret identity and definately a strong moral code. From 12% Female writers, now there is only a little morethan 1%. In a female counter part of superheroes, there are three life stages. One is a maiden, a young and inexperienced. Her virtue is beauty and youth, she’s passive and patient and endures waiting. Second is a mother. Her virtue is nuturing. The last is a crone- an old woman. A Warrior woman, is strong and courageous. Another argument presented is having a super hero and being one. It is defining female identity as having a (men) her in our/her life (romantic interest). Heroes like Darna, Isis and Wonder Woman, all beautiful and passive and trying to save the world. Hetero-breeding superheroes: Scarlet witch. Moral code: the female superhero in relation to self autonomy is connectedness. Diversity of Images- Tokenism gives us an example of like that of Batwoman as a lesbian. In my own opinion, the points are well taken. The role of men in mythology are great but women are that of equals too. Beauty and power is not lesser than that of men. However, there is some part that depicts women very diversified. Like that of Bat Woman as a lesbian. It doesn’t really make sense why women have to be represented in comics like that. In any case, the role of women in being a hero is not of weaker or less valuable that that of representation. In terms of gender issues, there is streotyping when it comes to gender roles in society since our ancestor’s times but right now, the continuing development in global scale doesn’t anymore hinder the women or deprive them of equal rights to that of men’s. In fact, women’s role today in families especially in single parenthood is that they are represented as heroes as they can work and build their families on their own. It is proven by facts.
