Sulfate-free Shampoo is the one and only shampoo I recommend - EVER. I personally ran scientific tests on my own clientele for 1 year. All tests concluded that sulfates are one of the most horrific and horrible chemicals that can be applied to the hair strands. Please be diligent about checking all products you apply to your and your family's hair that you may purchase elsewhere, you do not need to worry about anything I carry I am super Strict about where I get my products and combing them for ingredients that I do NOT agree with.
I truly only believe in Spray / Leave-in conditioners.....unless of course you are talking about hair that gets super tangled and that just is not enough. Otherwise do daily conditioners actually repair your hair? NO they do not....So applying them after every shampoo seems as though it is a wasted effort and a con by the large shampoo conglomerate/manufacturers. just spray your your hair with a light conditioner ( like Soma) then when you need repair on your hair, deep condition it using THRIVEN / GLEAM / INTENSIVE.
I studied Cosmetic Chemistry for 2 years and studied all ingredients that go in every type of hair product. I studied under the gentleman that invented mascara for max factor in the 50's & 60's and he was a major part of the law suit that claimed 1 ingredient "WAS" dangerous in mascara. That 1 product 'blinded' a (small - but still 'any' is important) certain percentage of the population ........ it was one of the biggest, most expensive & provocative cosmetic chemistry Law Suits in the 20th century and it set the standards for the next 50 years of safety in cosmetics.That is who I studied under for 2 years, I was very lucky and in the right place at the 'right' time!
I want you to know that I exam every single product I carry for safety for you and your family & friends so you don't need to worry, there are a lot of Chemical sounding names that I actually know what they are.....and if I don't know I have friends to ask.
The tests we ran on sulfate-shampoos about 15 years ago were not just slight. They were REMARKABLY apparent...regarding hair loss, hair thinning, hair health, hair growth.....simply EVERY S-I-N-G-L-E factor, so never use Sulfate's in your shampoo's ( except of course if you are using KC's SHAMPOO TRAIN maneuver. People are always so astounded that this process works.....its only to be used in trying to remove the hair color in your hair for a day or 2....sulfates work just wonderfully for that and if you use a Malibu packet after you use a sulfate shampoo everything is completely deleted..
So here is a list of Sulfate- free shampoos' for you to choose from with a wide variety of price points. Its very difficult to recommend shampoo's when you CANNOT -- "FEEL" the hair. So just try to find a shampoo you like and stick with it. The only reason it feels like a "new" shampoo is doing something unique to your hair -- is because a new shampoo has a completely different formula and of course it would react differently at first. But, that will eventually calm down just like all of them will. It wasn't till I had my Blog that I heard how many of you are fascinated at SHAMPOOS. We aren't fascinated by shampoos here in L.A. nearly as much as the rest of the country is !!!
I just will continue to add to the list for you.
