Why Sulphate free is good for you.
Anyone who has had their locks damaged by chemically laced products will tell you nature is the way to go for redemption and they are not wrong. When it comes to taking care of our bodies and hair, there really is no better substitute for mother nature. Using natural and sulphate free hair and body products mean you reduce your toxic load; they are also gentle and friendlier to the body as a whole.
So what are the actual benefits of going sulphate free?
(1) Relief for sensitive skin
Natural and sulphate free products won’t strip essential oils from the skin which makes them suitable for those who suffer from allergies or skin conditions such as eczema or dermatitis. If you have dry, sensitive skin try switching to natural, sulphate free hair and shower products to reduce skin irritations.
(2) Eases dandruff problems
Suffering from dandruff and a dry, itchy scalp can be more than annoying and using shampoos and conditioners which contain sulphates will often dry out the hair making the condition worse. They also remove natural oils which keep hair looking smooth and shiny.
(3) Maintains hair colour for longer
Whether you visit the salon each month to maintain those blonde highlights or regularly dye your hair at home, sulphates can strip the hair colour causing it to fade after every wash. So if you have chemically coloured hair try using a gentle, sulphate free hair product, to reduce colour fade.
(4) Improves the condition of hair
It’s believed that using sulphate rich hair products on a regular basis can actually weaken the hair follicles in the long run causing more hair damage and breakage.
(5) Perfect for thick and curly or Afro hair
This type of hair is usually drier and more brittle than others so using a sulphate free shampoo and conditioner will really help to keep hair under control and in better condition.
