Here’s why Sulphate & Paraben Free Shampoos Are A Must For Natural Hair

In the haircare industry, the terms sulphate and paraben free are the hottest buzzwords doing the rounds for a while. While many experts claim it has magical properties when it comes to reducing hair fall and healing damaged hair, have you ever wondered what does not having sulphate and paraben in your shampoo actually mean?

Sulphates and parabens in shampoo act as a double-edged sword. While both have properties that keep your scalp squeaky clean, they can also strip your hair off natural oils, making them brittle and dry. If you are interested to know more about sulphate and paraben free shampoo benefits, read on and make an informed decision before your next shampoo purchase.

What are Sulphates and Parabens?

Sulphates are chemical ingredients that cause your shampoo to lather thick. Sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) and sodium laureth sulphate (SLES) are the two common sulphates used in shampoos as a foaming agent. Parabens are chemical preservatives that prevent the growth of bacteria in your products. Both these products work wonders when it comes to cleansing your hair thoroughly, however it comes at the cost of ruining your hair health.

Sulphates act as strong detergents that strip your scalp and hair off necessary natural oils, proteins and moisture, leaving your hair brittle and fragile and scalp dry and irritated. People with pre-existing skin conditions like eczema and rosacea should steer away from shampoos with sulphate, since it causes skin irritation and makes matters worse. Additionally parabens can fade your hair colour, cause skin and even trigger hair loss.

Why Sulphate and Paraben free shampoo for healthy hair?

Sulphate and paraben free shampoos are milder and gently cleanse your scalp without starving it of essential oils and nutrients. Another plus point of going sulphate and paraben free is that you can wash your recently dyed or coloured hair without worrying about the colour fading. Shampoo without sulphates may not provide a rich, thick lather, but it does clean and nourish chemically damaged hair back to its former glory.

Benefits of Sulphate & Paraben Free Shampoos

  • Retain natural oils: One of the best benefits of shampoos free from sulphate and parabens is that it does not strip your hair of its natural oils or cause skin irritation, while gently cleansing and moisturising your hair. By the end of your shower, you will have a healthy, naturally shining mane.

  • Make your hair stronger: Shampoos with sulphates and parabens can dry your hair up, making it brittle and prone to breakage. Your scalp may feel itchy and flaky, leading to hair thinning and loss. A good sulphate and paraben free shampoo keeps your hair moisture intact, making it healthier and stronger in the long run.

  • Prevent hair colour from fading: Paraben and sulphate free shampoos are safer options for colour treated hair. Moisture retention is crucial for coloured hair, and with lesser chemicals in your shampoo, you can wash recently coloured hair regularly, without worrying about losing the colour or lustre of your hair.

  • Prevent skin sensitivity and itchiness: Symptoms of sulphate sensitivity include redness, itchiness, dryness and inflammation of the skin and scalp. Sulphate and paraben free products are much milder and gentler on sensitive skin, eliminating itchiness and dryness of the skin.

  • Works wonders for curly hair: Sulphate and paraben free shampoo locks the moisture in the hair, making it possible for curls to retain their bounce and curl pattern. It also prevents frizz and tangles, making curly hair strong and manageable.
