Shampoo is crucial for maintaining your hair’s health and cleanliness. But, the popular hair care product is often ladened with harmful ingredients and chemicals that make it unsafe for your hair, especially if you have thinning strands.

Worried that your shampoo could be contributing to your thinning hair? Dermatologists say it may be worth it to switch to a shampoo that is fortified with strengthening, hair-healthy ingredients like biotin to ensure that your hair is getting the nutrients it needs. 

"Biotin can help strengthen the hair [and] amino acids can also help strengthen and moisturize," New York dermatologist Dr. Sejal Shah tells Bustle



So, what shouldn't you be using? Dr. Shah strongly recommends avoiding shampoos that contain sulfates because of their damaging effect on hair. 


“Sulfates can strip the hair of its natural oils, break down proteins in the hair, slow down and potentially stop hair growth," Dr. Shah explains. 


It turns out sulfates aren't the only things you have to worry about in your shampoo. Dr. Shah notes that chemicals like Diethanolamine and Triethanolamine are just as bad for your hair. 


"Diethanolamine and Triethanolamine can cause scalp irritation and destroy the hair's keratin," she explains.
