Is it really better to use SLS Free Shampoo and if so what are some good ones
OH, I see! So it is that nasty SLS and LS that strip color from our hair. I never knew that! I always tried to avoid them because they are not healthy for us, but now I know that they are EVIL too! Thanks!SLS and LS are potent degreasers. They strip any chemical color from your hair and some ppl think they contribute to hair loss.
Shampoo Causes Hair Loss -- The Effects of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS).
That site recs Aubrey, which is found at health food stores. Pureology makes a nice line for colored hair. Many brands are hopping on the bandwagon now and offering SLS-free lines. L'Oreal has one.
My scalp got itchy again, I used a shampoo that I thought was SLS free. This week when I read the thread about emu oil was good for hair to grow, I decided to give a try. I put emu oil with few drops of lavender & rosemary essential oil on my scalp before going to bed, only one application and the itch has stopped almost immediately!Yes, I agree - SLS really makes my scalp itch too!
Good article. I learned something - that SLS could be contributing to my hair thinning/loss. That does it - no more SLS for me! Have you noticed any difference in your own hair by avoiding SLS?
I bought some of this shampoo yesterday, used it this morning, and really loved it. I didn't get the conditioner only because I have others I want to use up first, but will do so when the time comes.I tried Jason Apricot shine shampoo and conditioner at my mom's. I really liked it and think I will purchase.
Great idea Fawnie. Do you ever skip the shampoo and just use conditioner? I find that washing my hair everyday is often unnecessary - esp. in the winter, since I do not add styling products. But I need to freshen it up after sleeping on it and don't like just wetting it down before styling - it's not the same thing. So sometimes I just apply some conditioner and it seems to be enough. I think that it is also more gentle on my color (less washout). Iin the summer it's a different story and I do need to shampoo daily.I accidentally put Pureology Nanoworks conditioner on first instead of shampoo, so I added Nanoworks shampoo and lathered up well. I rinsed well and then didn't use any conditioner afterward. This works! It left my hair bouncier and softer than doing it the usual way! Been doing this all week and love it! Saves time too!
I never heard of "co-washing" and who are these "long hair ppl"?mireckca, that's just what some of the "long hair ppl" do. They call it co-washing and it involves conditioner that doesn't contain any protein (builds up on hair) such as Suave Naturals. It also has a big following with ppl who have ethnic hair, but mine is too fine and this makes it flat. What conditioner are you using that you get such great results??!!!
