SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) is a cleansing agent found in many soap-based products. The ingredient dissolves and removes dirt and grease from the hair and scalp, leaving it clean and fresh. The disadvantage is that they can remove natural oils from the scalp and hair.
Sulfates enable the removal of grime and dead skin cells from your skin and scalp, which can then be washed away with water.This can cause hair to become dry and brittle.
What are the benefits of using sulfate-free shampoo?
SLS shampoos dehydrate hair fibers, causing them to become dull and frizzy. Sulfate-free hair cleansers, on the other hand, aid in the retention of natural moisture in the hair. Irritation/inflammation is reduced: Sulfates are harsh chemicals that can dry out and irritate the scalp.
Color-treated hair is best friends with sulfate-free shampoo for two reasons:.
A sulfate–free shampoo, will not dry out your hair as much as a sulfate shampoo would.
Because sulfate–free shampoos are gentler, they are less likely to remove hair dye.
Parabens are commonly used in cosmetics as preservatives. Parabens are commonly used to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria and are widely used; approximately 85 percent of cosmetics contain parabens because they have proven to be effective and inexpensive. Some parabens have been shown in studies to mimic the activity of the hormone estrogen in the body’s cells. Parabens have been discovered in breast tumors. Because parabens are generally unsafe, it is best to avoid them until proven otherwise.
Sulfates are concerning because they have been found to degrade proteins, which can lead to cell membrane degeneration. Sulfates have also been shown to leave residue in the heart, lungs, and brain.
