A hairstylist has revealed the terrible damage that your locks can be done by using drugstore shampoos that are full of silicones and parabens.
In a shocking TikTok video, Seattle-based hair stylist Sydney Augusta is seen using a hairdresser’s scissors to scrape a plastic-like build out of a strand of her hair.
& # 39; This is what drugstore products can do to your hair! & # 39; she wrote in & # 39; the title of & # 39; a video – which has been viewed 8.1 million times – while adding: & # 39; Say no to silicones and parabens! & # 39;

In a video that has unleashed an incredible 8.1 million views on TikTok, Sydney is seen with one knife cut from an open pair of scissors to scrape a thin piece of hair.
As she moves the scissors from the root to the point, a waxy substance is seen building up on the knife. At & # 39; end of & # 39; In the video, the substance hangs on the ends of their hair.
This, Sydney explained, is a buildup of synthetic products that does not occur if you use hair products that do not contain the chemical substances.
Silicones are a type of synthetic polymer – a flexible, plastic-like material that can be formed for a variety of uses and applications. In hair products, silicones are used to give locks a smooth, frizz-free appearance, in order to clothe and moisturize the hair.
Parabens, meanwhile, are a type of synthetic chemicals that are often used as preservatives in all types of products, including those in the beauty industry, as well as food and pharmaceuticals.
While no silicones like parabens are dangerous to use, their inclusion in hair product formulas is highly controversial – and the Sydney video is the latest evidence that shows just how harmful they can be to the hair in the long term .
As shown in & # 39; TikTok clip, the synthetic fabrics build in & # 39; some time on the hair – especially the silicone that is designed to coat the hair and give the look frizz-free and smooth.
But silicones can weave the hair, making & # 39; it & # 39; life and slap & # 39; looks, and they can also prevent the hair from hydrating properly.
& # 39; Silicone will weave the hair, leaving it limp, lifeless, and, over time, very double, & # 39; told celebrity hairstylist Shai Amiel Coveteur.
Don't try this at home: although they warned viewers not to try the experiment themselves, Sydney encouraged everyone to switch to a more natural hair structure

& # 39; It prevents that moisture in & # 39; a brain passes through and becomes like a magnet for dirt and other ingredients. So basically we get a good shine for a few days, but over time it will attract more build on the hair.
& # 39; Over time, it will dry out the hair, & # 39; t do it in & # 39; a balm will allow and it ends on the surface. Due to lack of moisture, the hair will become very brittle and it can lead to itching and breakage. & # 39;
Many experts also warn that silicones will only mimic the appearance of healthy, frizz-free hair by coating the locks; they do not offer health benefits for hair, but are instead only included in capsule formulas for aesthetic reasons.
& # 39; Consumers are interested in saving on hair products, so a lot of & # 39; & # 39; new markets reduce costs by stripping expensive ingredients and adding something cheaper, & # 39; told hairstylist Paul Windle in September 2019 to DailyMail.com.
& # 39; Often silicones are found in hair care to give shine to the hair. & # 39;
The Sydney video made a wave of user comments – with some question why she suffers from that kind of unusual buildup when she is a licensing professional.
& # 39; I have some professional products that can still have silicones and parabens, & # 39; she explained. & # 39; I've used a lot of masks since I lit it up. & # 39;
Others suggested that the built-up Sydney look scraped from their hair might be naturally formed keratin, however, other hairstylists jumped to their defense, suggesting that they had seen the same type of build on the hair of their own clients with using synthetic products.
& # 39; Another professional here! & # 39; one commentator introduced herself. & # 39; This is very true. I have taken many classes here and I can always see and feel it in my clients' hair. & # 39;
Added another: & # 39; I'm also a hairstylist. It's built up. & # 39;
