Why your hair needs sulfate-free shampoos? All you need to know

Apr 15, 2021 15:52 IST | By Editorji News Desk

The term sulfate-free shampoo has created a lot of buzz lately, but have you ever wondered what sulfate-free actually means?

Sulfate is formed when sulphuric acid reacts with other chemicals. It is considered to be a great cleaning agent but is it really good for your hair?

The primary purpose of sulfate is to produce a rich lather to help remove grime, oil, and dirt from your hair. They are aggressive detergents that may strip your hair of its natural moisture and can be extremely harsh on the scalp and may cause irritation. One is advised not to use sulfate shampoos as it makes your hair dry, rough, and brittle.

If you have coloured hair, sulfate-free shampoos are a blessing, these are gentle on the hair and won't strip it of its color too fast. They are much milder and can help you control scalp inflammation and are gentle for your eyes too.

Sulfate-free shampoos are environment friendly as they are made of plant derivatives. There are plenty of benefits of using a sulfate-free shampoo, hence, many people opt for it. The best way to find out if you are using such a shampoo is by reading the labels.
