We’re becoming a lot more savvy when it comes to reading the labels on our beauty products; our skincare routines have upgraded and we think it’s about time your hair care groove is upgraded too.
But where to start?
Well, now is probably the best time to tell you that a lot of the traditional hair care brands are not always good for your precious locks (Unlike N4’s best-selling shampoos! Read on to discover more.)
We’re sure you’ve all heard of those naughty little soapy suds called sulfates.
Sulfates are primarily used to create a lathering effect to remove oil and dirt from your hair. But these don’t exactly have a clean record (despite their motives), as they can cause skin irritation and dry hair by stripping your locks of their natural oils. So they’re definitely naughty and as it happens, not nice either.
How do sulfates work their dirty magic?
These little bad boys, and we do mean bad, are like water babies!
Imagine a tadpole with two ends – one end loves water and one end 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.
What are Sulfate Free Shampoos?
We kind of feel betrayed that a lot of hair care brands don’t coddle, but rather strip our hair when we have styling routines that include the use of hot tools. We need a cleansing routine that will support our strands, and that’s where sulfate free shampoos come in.
You can clean your hair with confidence knowing that the formulas leave out harsh chemicals, lock in moisture, prevent color from fading too fast and are less likely to irritate a sensitive scalp.
And where better to look for these miracle formulas than Number 4 High Performance Hair Care?
