Looking for a good budget friendly sulfate free shampoo?
I have got you covered!
Using a sulfate-free shampoo is a great move forward to achieve your hair goals. A shampoo with SLS is not only harsh on your scalp and hair but is one of the main reasons behind dry, damaged hair with hair fall and dandruff problems.
What Exactly is a Sulfate Free Shampoo?
Sulfate free shampoo is a shampoo that does not contain a chemical name sulfate or SLS. This is a chemical that is a type of very cheap detergent which makes your shampoo lather. This gives you a myth that your shampoo needs to lather in order to achieve clean and fresh hair.
But in reality, what sulfates do is that it strips off natural oils from your scalp. These natural oils are extremely necessary for your hair to be healthy. If you feel your hair is not healthy, then one of the main reasons behind it is sulfate in your shampoo.
Why You Should Use Shampoo Without Sulfate?
As I mentioned above, shampoo with this harmful chemical is one of your hair’s biggest enemy. In short, if you use a shampoo that contains SLS then you will slowly become a victim of
- dry hair
- frizzy hair
- split ends
- hair fall
- dry itchy scalp
- damaged hair and many more.
So be sure to invest in a shampoo that is free of harsh chemicals.
