SULFATE AND SLS
Sulphates are cleaning agents that cleanse both oil and dirt.
They are often included in all kinds of cleaning products for car, housing, clothing, etc.
But they are also found in cosmetics and cleaning products for hair and skin, because sulfate has the ability to dissolve oil in water.
In addition, sulfates also help give the soap the foaming effect that many associate with freshness and purity.
WHY ALL THIS TALK ABOUT SULPHAT-FREE SHAMPOOS?
But the thing is that shampoos containing sulphates can be a little too powerful to 'just' clean your hair and scalp.
The scalp has a natural moisture blush and when using strong cleansers, this balance is destroyed and this can lead to overproduction of fat or dehydration.
So a shampoo without sulfate is considered a milder alternative.
All Raw Roots Products are sulfate-free and help keep the natural balance of moisture in hair and scalp.
IS A SHAMPOO WITHOUT SULPHATE ANYTHING FOR YOU AND YOUR HAIR?
To help you determine if your hair can benefit from a sulfate-free shampoo, here are some questions that can help you decide.
YOU GOT CURLYS AND KNOW ALL ABOUT FRIZZY HAIR?
If the answer is yes then you should definitely consider a sulfate-free shampoo.
Curly hair needs a lot of moisture.
If you choose a shampoo without sulfate, you will help your hair and scalp maintain the natural oils.
If you choose a shampoo with sulphates, then the hair will have a larger tendency to frizz due to an imbalance in the natural oil balance in the hair.
It may be a good idea to rinse with a good conditioner regardless of whether you use a shampoo with or without sulphates, so that the hair gets the optimum nutrition and moisture.
For those of you who have problems with curly hair, but do not have curls, then you can advantageously use a good hair oil that collects, reduces and softens frizzy hair.
IS YOUR HAIR COLORED?
If so, you can keep your hair color beautiful and longer lasting with a sulfate-free shampoo.
To keep your hair as beautiful as when you went out of the salon, you need some hair products that will protect your new hair color.
There are several reasons why a non-sulfate shampoo is best suited for that purpose. Among these reasons is that the hair is more sensitive and dry after a hair dye than it would normally be. A shampoo without sulfate will not dry out the hair in the same way.
Another good reason why you should choose a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner if you have dyed your hair is that the products help keep the color and are less likely to discolor or wash away the color.
IS YOUR HAIR DRY AND DULL?
If your hair feels dry, coarse and dull and not smooth and soft when you run your fingers down between the hair tresses, then you probably have a curly and dry hair.
This hair type can also benefit from a shampoo without sulfate, as a sulfate-free shampoo does not remove the hair's natural oils and moisture, which just contributes to a healthy, smooth and soft hair.
IS YOUR HAIR DAMAGED AND POROUS?
If yes, do not use a shampoo with sulfate.
If your hair is fine, fragile or typically Scandinavian, a sulfate-free shampoo will be ideal for not making the situation worse than it is in the past, but on the contrary, acting effectively to counteract these symptoms.
A shampoo without sulfate can also retain moisture in the hair, and since dryness is often a great culprit for a damaged and broken hair, this can be a great benefit to you with damaged, split and broken hair.
DO YOU HAVE PROBLEMS WITH DRY AND ITCHY SCALP?
If so, then you should use a sulphate-free shampoo for good.
The disadvantage of sulfates is that they also wash off the natural oils from the scalp and hair.
If your scalp is sensitive, sulfates can cause irritation such as redness, dryness and itching.
So if your scalp is irritated, then there is really good reason to switch to a sulfate-free shampoo.
OILY HAIR AND DANDRUFF?
A sulfate-free shampoo helps to stimulate the natural balance of the scalp so as not to create excess fat and sebum.
