What Is A Sulfate Free Shampoo And Why Do You Need One?

What Is A Sulfate Free Shampoo And Why Do You Need One? 546 450 Number 4 High Performance Hair Care

sulfate free hair productsBONJOUR DAH-LING!

Today we’re tackling the subject of sulfate free hair products, like our best-selling shampoos. What is it and why do you need to use one? We’ll be asking: Is a sulfate free shampoo really a must-have product in your shower caddy?

Sulfate free products are increasing in popularity. Head to any store and you’ll see the range is expanding.

At Number 4 High Performance Hair Care we pride ourselves on creating exceptional, cutting edge products, inspired by nature, but led by delivering professional level results. Extraordinary experiences are fused with the highest quality curated ingredients. We care as much about what we leave out, as we do put in! That’s why our range is designed to be 100% Vegan, Sulfate & Sodium Chloride Free, Gluten Free, Paraben Free and never tested on animals. So the short answer as to whether you need to use a sulfate free shampoo is a resounding YES. Let’s explore why and answer your most frequently asked questions about sulfates.

What Are Sulfates?

That lovely lather that makes your body wash, facial cleanser and yes, your shampoo so luxurious and creamy….that’s sulfates. They’re used in a heap of the most popular hair and body care products to deliver that bubbly, foaming texture that everyone loves.

The most common of all the sulfates is something known as sodium lauryl sulfate – or SLS for short. It’s absolutely NOT included in N4 products and we’ll go on to explain why not. SLS is a chemical, known as a surfactant and is highly effective in removing dirt and oil from the hair and skin.

How Do Sulfates Work?

These little bad boys, and we do mean bad, are like water babies! Imagine a tadpole for a minute with two ends – one which loves and one which hates water. When it comes to sulfates, the head is oil-soluble and traps dirt and grease, while the water-soluble tail then washes it clean away. At least, that’s the theory.

So far, so good? So what’s the problem with sulfates?

Well, we’re glad you asked! Let’s go back to that tadpole analogy again. The head can frequently get trapped and when it does, it causes irritation which can lead to a dry, itchy scalp. Because the sulfate molecules are so hardy and robust, they’re unable to differentiate between what is excess oil, and what is your hair and scalp’s own natural sebum. This means that they strip away everything they come into contact with, even the good stuff. Leaving behind hair that’s dry, brittle and prone to breakage.

What are the benefits of using an N4 Sulfate Free products?

All Number 4 products tout the benefit of being sulfate free. But what does that mean for your hair?

  • Reduced frizz
  • Reduced skin, neck, back and scalp irritation
  • Softer and more hydrated hair

Great product for curly hair that is soft and beautiful

I have been using this product for over 10 years and it always leaves my hair soft and flowing. I have tried so many products that make my curly hair look wet and plastic.

Have tested this product on client after client. I work in the fashion industry doing hair for some of the major clothing brands that you know and love. Many models arrive with tangled hair. I use Super comb prep and I get so many products in one. It delivers conditioning, healthy hair, detangles, and helps the styling process. I spray a couple pumps of this comb and detangles the hair and add Thermal styling spray for heat protectant and to hold the curls in place. Perfect combo! The added plus is the products smell so great.

  4. Melissa Austin

    I received a sample of this in my Birchbox and loved it. It made my hair really smooth without being super greasy, which products like this tend to do with my hair. I don’t necessarily have a huge tangle issue but it kept my hair really soft.

  5. Ursula Ball

    I was first introduced to your products via Birchbox..shampoo,conditioner, and style aids!! I feel the most important product will be Super Comb and Protect from UV rays, heat damage, and condition protection plus the comb that comes with it!! Whatever style after shampoo & condition, you got to protect your hair first!!

  6. Stephanie

    I absolutely love this spray! I got a sample of it in a subscription, and it’s absolutely phenomenal. The smell is amazing, and I love that it protects my dyed red hair from both the flat iron and from fading in the sun.

  7. Kristi

    I received this in my Birchbox and absolutely love it! My daughter always wants to use my special spray and on special occasions I let her. This makes my thick wavy hair feel amazing and the tangles fall right out! And that smell! I love the smell probably my favorite thing about it! Thank you for such an amazing product!

  8. Candi

    I simply cannot do without Super Comb Prep & Protect. My hair was really showing the effects of blow drying, straightening, sun damage, and age-but this product restores my hair every time. On the rare occasion I run out of it, there is a noticeable difference. Also, did I mention I love the smell of it?

  9. Karen Cogburn

    This is all I use when flat ironing or blow drying. Perfect protection for damaged hair. It smells lovely also. Many compliments since using. Recommend to friends & family.

  10. anakrmz89

    I was never a fan of detanglers until I received this as a sample. I used heavy leave in conditioners and my hair was greasy by the end of the day. This Supercomb Prep and Protect is magic in a bottle! It’s weightless, the fragrance is light and my hair is so soft after I use it! This is definitely a staple to my hair routine now!

  11. Marissa Ramirez

    Thanks to Birchbox, I have fallen head I’ve heels for this leave-in conditioner! I received a sample in my Birchbox and had to have a full-size. The smell is amazing, but the way it has transformed my hair is even more amazing. I will never use another leave-in!

  12. mrpurifoy

    I can’t say enough good things about this! It smells divine. It does not weigh down my fine hair. It de-tangles, protects my color and protects from heat. Divine!!!!

  13. Mags

    Smells SO GOOD! I love this leave in conditioner. It leaves my hair soft, easy to brush, and smelling great. Curly hair friendly, too!

  14. calypso

  15. brank4

    I love this stuff!!! I’m addicted to the smell and how soft it makes my hair!

  16. MelodiM89

    This stuff is quickly becoming a favorite! It makes my hair super shiny, smooth, and fresh. Love!

  17. mrpurifoy

    I was introduced to your products through my Birchbox. And I have to say that this is my favorite hair product ever!!!! It protects my color and protects from heat and smells like heaven. I recommend all of your products to all of my friends!!!

  18. mlg235

    I first received this as a sample in my Birchbox subscription, and was so excited to try it out. It did not disappoint! I love having low maintenance looks, and tend to keep my heat styling to a minimum and am always on the look out for great leave-in conditioners. After 5+ years of trying dozens of leave-in conditioners, this is BY FAR my favorite! It was amazed by how shiny, sleek, and smooth it made my hair. I got so many comments after I started using it about how healthy my hair looked!! It is so easy to use, it combs through my hair easily and evenly, and actually seemed to cut down the amount of time I needed to blow dry my hair (which is a MAJOR selling point for me). It’s one of the few Birchbox samples I have actually bought after trying!

  19. kla385

    I first received a sampe of this in a birchbox subscription. I thought this product was so effective that I’ve repurchased it twiced now. I love the way it smells and how it protects my hair when I’m blow drying it. Now that I’ve discovered this product, I don’t think I could ever go without it.

  20. anything1984

    Love! Works great in mine and my daughters hair! We both have fine, thin hair. Gives great gloss to our hair without leaving oil residue and helps maintain style throughout day!

  21. kellykaye

    This is the absolute greatest prepping spray for people who have platinum hair! My hair can start looking fried when it gets bleached and then heat styled, however, since I started using Number 4 Super Comb Prep and Protect my hair has been flawless and it looks so healthy!

  22. mrpurifoy

    I use this product every day! It smells delicious and does not weigh my hair down. I extends the life of my color which is priceless. Best product I use!

  23. emboog

    I love using this product when my hair is especially tangled. Easy to comb so there’s no split ends.
