Also, brushing too hard can damage enamel and cause the recession of gum. The build-up of plaque may cause gum disease which leads to gum bleeding and sensitivity. Pick a soft brush with fine bristles to reduce abrasion on tooth structure and to better cleanse the gum line. A toothbrush with a compact brush head allows you to brush hard-to-reach areas, like back teeth, which can be easily missed when brushing with a normal-sized brush head.

The Importance Of SLS-Free Shampoo!

Check your shampoo labels and look for Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) – a common foaming agent that present in 90% of commercially available shampoos. SLS is able to permeate the skin effectively and concentrate in some organs such as eyes, brain and heart. SLS washes away the hair's moisture and may lead to the premature shedding of hair, clogging hair follicles and hair loss. Therefore, it is important to avoid products containing SLS. Instead seek natural alternatives! AFC Shokaigan Shampoo do not contain SLS but incorporates a natural blend of 10 amino acids to gently but deeply cleanse, unclog hair follicles and regulate scalp pH levels.
