Here are five reasons why sulfate-free shampoos will transform your locks to make every day a good hair day:
- Preserving essential natural hair oils:
When it comes to shampoo, sulfates produce a lathering effect that aids in removing dirt and debris from your hair and scalp. As effective as they are in ridding your hair of dirt, sulfates can also strip your hair of essential natural oils. One of the benefits of using a sulfate-free shampoo is that your strands won’t lose their natural, healthy shine.
- Reduced irritation/ inflammation:
Because sulfates are harsh chemicals, they may irritate the scalp. This may also lead to inflammation if uncontrolled. On the contrary, SLS-free hair products are mild and they gently clean your hair, without creating such problems. And even better if they have Aloe vera as it helps with soothing irritation/inflammation.
- Protect your colour:
If you have colored hair, you might notice your color looking faded and lackluster after using a sulfate shampoo. Stick to a sulfate-free option to keep your color looking vibrant and glossy.
- Efficient moisture retention:
Moisture is needed in hair to prevent problems such as split ends and breakage. SLS shampoos strips away the moisture from hair fibers, causing them to turn dull and frizzy. On the other hand, sulfate-free hair cleansers help retain the natural moisture in hair, especially when they include real Aloe vera, that helps condition your hair, locking essential nutrients and keeping them moisturized.
- Safe for environment and your scalp:
Sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners are safe for environment thanks to their plant-based ingredients. This also means that SLS-free hair cleansers are a great alternative for those with sensitive skin. Shampoos such as Herbal Essences Aloe vera are not only sulfate free saving the environment, they are have also been mindfully created, the bottles are 100% recyclable (except for the oil pump, discard separately), made up of 25% recycled plastics and is certified as PETA cruelty-free brand.
