Hydrating Shampoo with Natural Ingredients
Your journey to hair health begins each time you step into the shower and prepare to clean your luscious locks. It’s tempting to select inexpensive shampoo in pretty packages. Personal care product manufacturers lure customers in with wonderful scents like rose and lavender or convince aisle shoppers to buy based upon lofty claims. Many of us may even admit to being tempted by how much the shampoo foams up in our hair, providing a satisfying sudsing sensation and convincing us that at long last, we’ve found the moisturizing shampoo of our dreams.
However, many of these conventional shampoos are filled with harsh ingredients that work to strip the hair of all its natural oils, leaving it defenseless, dry, and dull. Sure, we’ve all been tempted by words like “vitality”, “b-12”, “amino acids”, and “smoothing”, wishing desperately that our hair could look like the model’s on the shampoo bottle. We’ve got some news for you. Her hair was styled that way. She didn’t just scrub her scalp with a moisturizing shampoo and come out with a million-dollar mane.
Which makes it all the more important to search for a moisturizing shampoo that treats the main issue at hand - cleansing your scalp and hair without drying it out or weighing it down. No shampoo can fulfill all your hair goals, but certain consciously-crafted cleansers can fortify your strands, balance scalp pH, and leave you with a healthy, clean head of hair.
Nourishing Shampoo Free of Sulfates
Search for a moisturizing shampoo that is free from ammonium lauryl sulfates or sodium laureth sulfates (SLES), parabens, sodium chloride, synthetic fragrances, dimethicone, and triclosan - to name only a few. In fact, many of these toxic ingredients are responsible for what we generally regard as normal shampooing properties - sudsing up when we scrub, making our hair soft and supple, releasing fragrant aromas, and leaving our scalp free from oil. However, the ingredients responsible for “clean” feeling hair are also responsible for irritation, product build up, breakage, and color stripping.
Opt for a natural, moisturizing shampoo that doesn’t alter how mother nature made your beautiful mane. Choose shampoos with ingredients that are derived from nature and don’t alter the hair’s normal structure.
