Sulfate Free

April 16, 2013
Lots of clients have been asking us about “sulfate free” shampoos and conditioners; what they’re all about, whether or not they work and why….

Soaps are abrasive and may have a drying affect on hair. Also, certain chemicals called “sulfates”, whether intentionally put into the shampoos or produced as a by-product of production, can strip color from your hair. Even natural colored hair which has never been dyed can lose color over time, even when not exposed to the sun. 

Sulfate free shampoos DO in fact prevent some color loss during the process of washing. There are other steps that can also prevent color loss, including water temperature and sun exposure, but this is definitely an essential step.
