Sulfate: you’ve probably been hearing a lot of noise around this topic.

Should you be using it? Is it bad for your hair? What’s the deal?

Sulfate is usually listed as sodium lauryl sulfate or sodium laurel sulfate and abbrevated as SLS on the ingredient label. It’s also a common detergent found in numerous household products such as laundry detergent and dish soap

Don’t believe me? Read your label next time you do the dishes.

These are all harsh cleaning products, so if you're using the same ingredient in your hair - it’s going to strip away your natural oils and leave your hair dry and brittle.

A lot of people have been switching over to low-sulfate and sulfate-free products and find themselves ecstatic with healthy voluminous hair again.
