Commercialized Shampoo Or Sulfate Free Shampoo? Let Us Take A Look At Their Components And Then, Decide Which Is Which
Poison in your Shampoo
Change to Organic from Commercialized
Clothes Washing = Hair Washing: The Result is Wear and Tear
For comparison purposes:
You buy a royal blue shirt and it has become your most favorite shirt.
You wear it every week.
Of course, you need to wash it with soap and put some fabric conditioner to preserve it.
But still, you will notice that your royal blue shirt will become a bit snug or maybe bigger than when you first wore it and the color is not anymore royal blue.
It has become light blue.
This is what you call wear and tear.
The same thing goes for the hair.
You are damaging it by using commercialized shampoo and by lathering up every day.
With constant shampooing (not the natural, organic or sulfate free shampoo kind), your hair will experience wear and tear too.
Even if you put a nourishing conditioner, still, it will not matter.
No to Sulfates, Yes to Sulfate-Free
Commercialized shampoos have surfactant/sulfates or in layman’s term – detergent.
This is the reason why your shampoo has a thick lather and you assume that this lather is the one responsible for keeping your hair clean.
Well, yes, in a sense, it does keep your hair clean, but it also strips away the sebum which protects the hair cuticle.
Without protection, your hair is prone to all sorts of damage.
But if you use a sulfate free shampoo, usually an organic hair wash, your hair will look and feel much better.
What sorts of damage can my hair experience if I use commercialized shampoo?
Most commercialized shampoos have these ingredients:
- Propylene Glycol
- Sodium Lauryl Sulphate or SLS
- Sodium Laureth Sulphate or SLES
And you Say this to Commercialized Shampoos!
These ingredients are:
- skin and hair irritants,
- harmful to the eyes,
- it targets the immune system and makes it weak
- and it can cause allergies.
But the alarming thing about these ingredients in commercialized shampoos is the fact that these ingredients can be carcinogenic and may cause organ dysfunctions.
This is the real deal.
Now if you want to be safe, if you want your family to be safe – find a sulfate free shampoo.
What is Sulfate Free Shampoo?
If you use a shampoo without sulfates, you will notice that it will not produce as much lather as the commercialized ones. Some people feel that if your shampoo has no suds, it is not working right. Well, who can blame them? All these years, we are lead to believe that shampoo has to create super lather. What we did not know is that the lather in shampoo can potentially harm our health.
All Natural, Organic and Sulfate Free Shampoo Made of Essential Oils
Healthy and Clean Hair, Thanks to Organic Shampoo
Think about Toxic against Nontoxic, What will you Choose?
I am willing to turn my other cheek for shampoo lather and suds and will use sulfate free shampoo.
I will miss it, but if it will harm me and my family, I do not need the lather on my shampoo.
I can stick with an organic hair care product as long as we are all healthy and clean.
That is all that matters to me and I believe to everyone, right?
Speaking of clean and healthy hair – organic shampoo is healthy to the maximum level and can provide dirt-free hair. I have read many things about organic shampoo especially those with essential oils like Argan oil, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil and more. These oils are the components of sulfate free shampoo and the benefits are amazing.
Here are some of the benefits of these oils:
Benefits of Argan Oil in Shampoo
Personal Experience on Jojoba Oil
Camellia or Tea Seed Oil
Avocado Oil on Hair
Almond Oil Uses for Skin and Hair
These oils are blended together to form a Sulfate free shampoo with Argan oil as its main ingredient. And we all know that Argan Oil is a miracle oil - liquid gold. It works its magic on both hair and skin.
Here are some of those organic shampoos:
