What exactly is sulfate? Sulfates are an essential ingredient in many standard shampoos — it helps create that foamy lather you love. Unfortunately, sulfates are known to damage color-treated hair and also strip your hair of natural, essential oils. It also weakens the hair follicles, making it brittle and prone to breakage.
So why not give sulfate-free shampoo a try? You’ll be nourishing your hair with the most natural ingredients and hydrate your luscious locks — the right way.
