The Buzz Words in Natural Hair Care

Natural Hair Care is big business these days.  Consumers are getting savvy about the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to the ingredients in their shampoos and conditioners.  Now, companies are taking note. One hot buzz word in the market is Sulfate-Free.  These are the harsh chemicals you should avoid in your natural hair care routine. They can irritate your scalp and leave your hair feeling dry and brittle. But in all cleansing products, including shampoos, there’s another buzz word called surfactants. These are the ingredients necessary to remove dirt and oil from your hair. So what are the good ingredients and the bad ingredients you need to avoid in your shampoos?  Here’s a guide to help you:
Gentle surfactants to look for: 
• Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate
• Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate
• Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate
• Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate
Harsh/Drying surfactants to skip: 
• Sodium Laureth Sulfate
• Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
• Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate
• Ammonium Laureth Sulfate
• Sodium Myreth Sulfate
