When it comes to taking a stroll through the hair care isle in any store or beauty shop… it can be quite intimidating. From the colorful bottles, marketing techniques, and keyword phrases, there are hundreds of options to choose from.
And if you are like us, it can definitely be overwhelming and stressful when it comes to trying out a new product! But there has been a new type of shampoo on the market for quite some time, and people rave about these kinds of products for your hair. Sulfate free.
We took some time to do a little bit of research on these sulfate free products, and here is what we were able to find…
- Sulfate free shampoos have more mild ingredients that help to retain moisture. On the flip side, they tend to have more ingredients than sulfate infused shampoos, seeing as sulfate free does not possess the chemical ability to have the same overall outcome in terms of washing out dirt, grime, and excess oil.
- These types of shampoos are great for people who color their hair on a regular basis. This is because sulfate is a harsh chemical and can strip out artificial hair dye from your strands.
- Sulfate free shampoos work best for people with naturally dry hair, curly hair, and fine hair. It helps your hair to maintain moisture, while leaving in some of the healthy, naturally occurring oils on your scalp that promote hair strand strength and length.
So, what are our final thoughts on sulfate free shampoos? Well, a lot of it depends on your actual hair type. But at the end of the day, it is important to stick to the kinds of products you like, and the kinds of products you feel comfortable buying.
