The haircare industry has been increasingly moving away from sulphates (such as sodium laureth sulphate and sodium lauryl sulphate): surfactants / foaming agents that can strip natural oils from the scalp and hair, making the hair dry and brittle and the scalp dry and itchy. Here at BeautyFeatures.ie we have gathered some of the most innovative products from around the world that will still provide you with a perfect clean, while being kind to your hair and to the environment.
If you have sensitive hair or scalp, a sulphate-free shampoo like Alfaparf Semi Di Lino Scalp Purify Shampoo or Pureology Pure Hydrate Shampoo should be a no-brainer. But it’s not only people with sensitive skin who can benefit from these sensitive formulas, as sulphates are also known to strip color and dull its shine. Try Pureology Super Smooth Shampoo, a product that is not only sulphate-free, but also contains a trademark anti-fade complex to protect color vibrancy. Match it with a leave-in treatment like Pureology Colour Fanatic, and the damage done in the past will be reversed. The luxurious duo Kerastase Aura Botanica Shampoo & Conditioner are also sulphate-free, utilizing 96% ingredients of natural origin, including responsibly-sourced Samoan Coconut Oil and Moroccan Argan oil.
Frizzy hair will also benefit from a sulphate-free shampoo and conditioner, as these will maintain the natural oils in the scalp and hair, ultimately leaving hair healthier and richer in moisture. Moroccanoil’s reparative blends such as Moroccanoil Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner, Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo & Conditioner and Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo & Conditioner (for an added volume boost), are also sulphate-free and will improve your hair’s overall health, leaving it manageable and shiny.
