What is sulfate and what does it do to the hair?

Hvad er sulfat og hvad gør det ved håret?
Sulfates are one of the most common ingredients in cleaning products, and they play a vital role in removing oil and dirt from everything from your car to your skin and hair. These powerful cleansers have the ability to dissolve oil in water, making them indispensable in many cleaning products, including shampoo.

When you combine your shampoo with water, sulfates efficiently purify your scalp and hair by eliminating grease and oil-based impurities. Additionally, they contribute to the foamy sensation commonly linked with a sense of freshness and cleanliness. However, what's the discussion surrounding sulfate-free shampoo all about?


Sulfate Free Shampoo

Although sulfates are effective, they can be too powerful to "just" clean your hair and scalp. The use of sulfates can disrupt the natural moisture balance in your scalp, which can result in either overproduction of oil or dryness.

A sulfate-free shampoo is therefore considered a milder alternative that helps maintain the natural moisture balance in both hair and scalp.

Is a sulfate-free shampoo suitable for you and your hair? To help you determine if your hair type could benefit from a sulfate-free shampoo, consider these questions:

Do you have curls and a tendency to frizzy hair? Sulfate-free shampoos can help preserve the natural oils that curly hair needs. This can reduce the tendency to frizz and maintain hair health.

Is your hair dyed? A sulfate-free shampoo is ideal for color-treated hair as it helps to preserve the color and protect it from drying out, which can result in longer-lasting color intensity.

Does your hair feel dry and dull? If your hair lacks shine and softness, a sulfate-free shampoo may be the solution. It preserves the hair's natural oils and moisture, which can improve the condition of the hair.

Is your hair damaged and breaks easily? A sulfate-free shampoo can help rebuild damaged hair by retaining moisture and strengthening the hair's structure.

Do you have problems with a dry and itchy scalp? A sulfate-free shampoo can relieve irritation and restore the natural balance of the scalp by preserving the natural oils.

Greasy hair and irritated scalp? A sulfate-free shampoo can help regulate sebum production and reduce scalp irritation.
