Sulphate Free Hair Edit

Sulphare-Free Haircare

With increased knowledge on how sulphates and parabens can harm your hair, the search for right haircare products have become a hot topic on Internet lately.

Parabens are chemicals that have been used since the 1950s to prevent bacteria and act as a preservative in deodorants, lotions, lipsticks, shampoos, scrubs, and more. Sulfates are effective cleansing and foaming agents that can be found in toothpaste, shampoo, and body washes, among other products. Sulfates are added to products to create a lather or bubbles and remove dirt and oils from skin and hair. When they’re used in shampoos, sulfates are very efficient cleansers — maybe a little too efficient — and can pull a lot of natural oil from hair and skin.

Sulphare-Free Haircare

Why Sulfates are bad for your hair?

They can cause a number of problems for your hair including drying, irritating your scalp, fading your color, and even hair loss.

Here are some of the Sulfate-free haircare products that are worth checking out:

American Cult hair care brand IGK recently launched in the UK and the excitement level was high because a) the products look uber-cool and b) they are free from nasties like SLS or SLES. This shampoo gently but effectively cleanse hair while giving them perfect grunge texture. This multitasking shampoo lets you skip finishing products like conditioner and texturizer which also means saving space in your Travel bag.

Sachajuan Cleansing Cream - Sulphate-free shampoo - Ms Tantrum Blog

You might have seen talking about the brand a lot of times before on my blog and social media, as the products I tried earlier were really nice and are still on my Bathroom shelf. I am excited to share the sulphate-free offering from Sachajuan this time. Hair Cleansing Cream cleanses the hair using a new, non-traditional technique based on caring waxes. The new cream formula does not lather but creates shine, lustre, moisture and softness while refreshing your hair. This hair cleansing cream is suitable for all hair types including dry, bleached, coloured or damaged hair plus you do not need conditioner with this saving lots of time and space. This refreshes the hair, delivering second day texture and is also great for hair extension wearers.

If you have thin, lacklustre hair, the Cleansing Volumising Paste (with Pure Rassoul Clay and Rose Extracts) by Christophe Robin is for you! This cleansing paste is a deep cleansing, shampoo-like treatment with a unique consistency and volume-boosting benefits. The 85% natural-based formula transforms upon application from a paste-like texture into a lightweight foam, with pure Rassoul Mineral Clay, rich in trace-elements, working to absorb dirt, oil and impurities while densifying each follicle for enhanced strength, lift and thickness from the root.Extracts of Baobab Leaf and Centifolia Rose Water impart a soft, supple texture, with antioxidant properties to help combat free radical damage and protect colour vitality. Tresses are left feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, with superior volume and body.

The addition of glycerine works to lock in the hair’s natural moisture while delivering build-able texture. This texture spray is gentle enough to use daily and on color-treated or keratin hair.
