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

No 4 Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner are MY FAVORITE

I LOVE the No 4 shampoo and conditioner. They have made my hair so much more healthy and I love the smell. My hair stylist recommended them and I'm so glad she did.

Michelle

This is my holy grail shampoo! The scent is heavenly, and it leaves my hair hydrated but not limp or oily. I believe this product helps keep my highlighted and heat-styled hair looking its absolute best.

I purchased this shampoo thru my salon where I have my hair colored. Initially, upon the first use, my hair felt tangled and stiff. Once I applied the conditioner, it helped, but no shampoo should make your hair feel tangled and rough. The conditioner is great, but the shampoo was not good for my fine color treated hair at all. What a disappointment.

This shampoo is perfect for my colored curly and frizzy hair. Leaves no residue and makes my hair fresh and clean and brings out the true beauty of my hair. I will never stop buying it.

I have been a loyal fan of Number 4 Hydrating Shampoo for years; however, the last bottle I received was totally different from the previous bottle. The product was brown, did not lather at all, and left my hair lank after washing. I will not be buying any more of this brand.

    The texture, scent & cleansing w/out stripping my purple color off is sensational. I thought I’d never find a pro product (I am licensed managing cosmetologist) that would meet or exceed all my requirements. It’s luxurious feel & color of the shampoo to begin with is a zen-like experience. Once you get that nectar on your hair & start to shampoo? Heavenly scent of patchouli fills your shower. It leaves hair hydrated & moist. It actually does what it professes to do, unlike so many other products. I adore Number 4! Psst- your man will always want to smell you, wondering what that new scent is that you are wearing!

  6. Lauren

    I got a sample of this in my Birchbox and it is absolutely the most amazing shampoo I’ve ever used! My hair is normally dry and damaged from the blow dryer and curling iron and this shampoo completely transformed it! It’s so soft and I hardly get split ends now. Definitely going to keep buying it 🙂

  7. fawxed

    This shampoo is an absolute DREAM! Super concentrated, a little bit really does go a long way, but it really gets the job done. My tresses are silky and my frizz is greatly minimized. It also smells delightful. Do yourself a favor!

  8. sillyj435

    Love love love this. My hair was so soft and feels so healthy!!! Oh and it smells sooo yummy. I have curly hair and fight with hydration issues. With this I no longer fight. Thanks.

  9. cjtang4u

    I love this line! All of the lines smell great but the Hydrate one is my favorite. This one smells like honeysuckle and I get whiffs of it throughout the day when I use it. A little goes a long way!

  10. molson

    This shampoo has saved my life. Well, technically it saved my hair, but since my hair is a huge part of my life… you get the gist. I have naturally curly hair that easily falls flat and goes frizzy. I have received so many compliments since my hairdresser introduced me to No. 4. and all I have to do is wash and go–no fuss and my hair looks amazing and feels amazingly soft.
    Mega hydrated! I love this stuff and you will, too!!

  11. a1nettie

    I love the way this makes my hair feel. The scent is unique and initially strong and off putting, but when I felt how my hair felt I was sold!Super silky and I don’t feel like I “Need” a conditioner when using this. Excellent!
    Annette

  12. julesc

    Perfect! I got a sample of both the hydrating shampoo and conditioner in my June Birchbox. Being a cosmetology student who’s currently trying like crazy to grow my hair out, I’m pretty picky about what I’ll put on my head. I decided to give this shampoo a shot and I’m hooked! Seriously, my usually frizzy hair has never felt so clean and soft, it’s even tamed my wiry, damaged ends from bleaching!

  13. emboog

    OMG. You must try this product! No disappointment will be had! Well worth the cost. Promise. Must follow-up with conditioner.
