For many years, sulfates have been a primary ingredient in your favorite hair and skincare products. They are the key to that sudsy lather we all associate with feeling ‘clean.’ Well, truth be told, sulfates are now known to cause way more damage than good. Specifically, if you fall into one of the 5 categories listed below…
Sulfates zap moisture, so if your hair is already prone to dryness or if you have any skin sensitives – they will wreak havoc on your scalp and likely create split ends and breakage. A few common hair and skin types that are at high risk include:
- Coarse Hair
- Curly Hair
- Colored Hair
- Sensitive Skin
- Sulfate Sensitivity
I highly recommend everyone check their labels and ditch anything with sodium laurel sulfates, parabens and dyes – but specifically if you fall into any of the above categories – it’s a must to go sulfate-free!
I have extremely sensitive skin, and fine, colored hair – so I have to pay close attention on what I’m using daily. Within the past month, I’ve switched to Janie 13 hair products which are all paraben, gluten and sulfate-free. I have noticed a significant improvement in the texture, volume and color retention of my locks!
What I’m currently using…
Aero-Tec To The Max Hair Spray | $15.75
A working spray or finishing spray, Aero-Tec to the Max adds shine while providing a very strong hold all day long.
