Reading the mumbo jumbo on the back of shampoo bottles can be confusing. You may have even given up by now. Who cares? It’s foamy and it smell good! But what if you were washing your hair with toxic ingredients that damage your hair? Might want to think again.
Here’s a real simple and easy guide of what to avoid and what to choose.
Which ingredients to avoid? Sulfates, sulfates and sulfates.
Just remember this. Sulfates are overly harsh detergents that ultimately damage your hair in the long run. Sulfates go by the names of Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS). Avoid them. These chemicals are too strong for your hair stripping essential oils your hair needs to stay healthy. It also breaks down protein and may lead to the prevention of hair growth.
So, what do I use? Go organic.
We recommend using organic shampoo, which essentially works for any kind of hair. Just take note that organic shampoos may seem like it doesn’t lather well enough and makes your hair squeaky at first. But give it 2 weeks and your hair will become so manageable, getting its natural shine and luster back. For people who have colored hair, permed hair or straightened hair, you may need extra special attention so consult your hair stylist for the perfect shampoo.
So there you have it. It’s time to take control and choose the right shampoo for long-lasting beautiful hair every woman deserves.
