Wash your hair the right way.
I love my hair. Even when its frizzy, dried out, limp, dull and just down right raggedy. To avoid all this drama, I use a sulfate free shampoo. Sure, shampooing alone won’t give me goddess, unicorn hair, but there are key products to get that “all eyes on me” hair. For me, one of the most important products to have is sulfate free shampoo.
When shampooing your hair you probably think the bigger and thicker the lather the cleaner your hair will be. I thought the same until I found out about sulfates. Sulfates are cleaning agents, usually found in beauty products (like shampoo) and household cleaners that cause lathering suds. However, an excessive use of sulfates can strip the natural oils in your hair ultimately leading to dryness, scalp issues and breakage.
Avoid sulfates by reading the ingredients on the products that you use. The most common sulfates are: Ammonia Laureth Sulphate, Sodium Laureth Sulphate, Sodium Lauryl Sulphate. Think about your hair type. If you have greasy hair you may want to keep using sulfates to get hair it’s cleanest. Avoid sulfates if you have color treated or natural hair. These hair types crave more moisture than others, and need a gentle cleanser like sulfate free shampoos to keep hair moisturized. What shampoo are you using?
