Hey Foxes!! For those of you who are wondering why sulfate shampoos are not the best for your hair, you might want to check this out!
First off what are sulfates? Sulfates are basically detergent agents that remove dirt and oils. Sulphates can be found in common personal care products, such as, toothpaste and soaps. They are usually listed as sodium laurel sulfate (SLS) or sodium laureate sulfate (SLES).
Sulfates in shampoo are used to remove the dirt and oils from the hair and scalp, and which sounds great, but those natural oils are actually good for the hair! Sulphate shampoos remove those natural oils from your hair, which drys it out. This weakens the hair follicle which in turn, can cause brittleness and breakage.
No one wants that, but to top it all off, sulphate shampoos will strip your hair color!
